For Scrapbookers. On the backs of macaroni and Cheese boxes. The blue boxes. They have characters. From Blues clues, scooby doo, dora. etc. So if you have young ones and need a sticker for a page and can't find one go to your mac and cheese boxes. I did a page with sponge bob. And it came out awwesome. Just cut out the pictures on the back and adhere them to your pages.

My favorite tip (which my SU Demonstrator used in our class this month - and her other classes as well): I saw a card in a magazine that I wanted to recreate and it had circles cut out (the outline). I didn't want to spend the money on a circle cutter from Coluzzle or Fiskar or MM, so I experimented.
Works for any shape where you have two punches of different sizes: punch out shape with smaller punch; then, with the larger punch, punch out 'rim' or 'outline' from your sheet or square of paper. You've got a great outline and depending on which punches you have, you can even vary the thickness of the 'outline'. You can then use the shape you punched out for something else.

Love this thread, but . . .

Twice, I've posted a big reply with a new tip and both times it didn't show up. Grrrrrr! If this little whine shows up, I'll really be mad!

Smile If at third, you don't succeed . . .

Let's try this one more time! I hate spending a half hour doing a cool reply and losing it, twice!
At my last stamp club meeting, Deloris showed us all a really cute trick to do a mirror image. We all know about using vellum, erasers, etc. to do mirrors, but this one is way easier. Dee stamped an image from Lovely as a Tree at the top of a piece of CS, leaving room at bottom for mirror. She stamped it again on a piece of waxed paper, flipped it over, lined it up to original image, laid it down, swooshed over it once with her hand, lifted the waxed paper and VOILA, a perfect mirror image. We all applauded and asked for an encore. Dee stamped, stamped, flipped, lined up, swooshed and lifted again! Ta daaaaa! More applause. With both times, it took her less than 5 minutes. Way cool!

Go ahead and laugh, Bagpuss. I finally made it on the third try! I thought SU was already in England! Ally and Fiona both use lots of SU.

Smile I had a thought!

Look out, Kathy had a thought. I wish we could edit these things. sigh

Oh, well, here it is. This waxed paper trick works great for mirror images, but I bet it works equally as well for left/right images! If you have one shoe, you now have two! If you have one palm frond, you now have two. Wow, I amaze myself sometimes! I had an original thought in my head! LOL

That is a fantastic tip. So far I only have SU designer paper so I created a couple binder pages with photocopies of the paper from the catalog. But for other types, this is a good idea. TFS

Default Stamp Pad Coloured Labels

Hi there girls,

What a great thread thank you so much for all of your great ideas, tips & tricks it is GREATLY appreciated! I dont know if what I have attached falls into Favourite Tip or not, probably more of an organizational thing, but I thought Id attach it in case it is of use to anyone. When my new SU pads arrived, I was surprised that the actual name was no longer printed on the end. I really liked having the name there, right on the end, so I made up some labels for them. The colours are formatted for my Canon Pixma iP6000D printer, so theymay need to be tweaked.

I just print the document onto an 8 x 11 label sheet and cut the labels out with my x-acto knife. If you dont have access to a full sheet label they could be taped on. I dont know if the Xyron or snail adhesive would hold on a permanent basis, but double sided scotch tape would probably work.

Thanks, Ashymko! While I only have about 7 new SU pads, I know someone with all of them in a neat holder that can use them, so I'll send this tip on to her.

Smile Sticker Tip

Here's another cool idea I got from Dee in my stamp club. She buys Mrs. Grossman's stickers by the huuuuuge rolls. She loves 3D stickers like from Kay & Co., but those get expensive for mass producing cards. Dee saw this someplace and it works great.

You peel the sticker off its back, lay it sticky side up (tweezers help here), trim dimensionals to fit here and there and apply to sticky side of sticker. Dust the sticker with talcum powder (also saw that someone used corn starch), peel the last bits off the dimensionals and stick the flower wherever you want. It's now popped up! I've made a cute card by mounting the daisies sticker on an oval piece of black glossy CS left over after coluzzling (is that word?) some frames. I'll have to scan it and upload it to my gallery, but will put a link on this thread when I do. The daisies look like they were incredibly colored and fussily cut out, but it's a sticker! Woo hoo!

Works for me.

I do the 3 ring binder thing too, BUT am a bit lazy so before I mount my stamps I copy the sheet with the stamp images on it onto a piece of "cheap" CS for my binder. Have been thinking about arranging my binder in catalog fashion but for now they are in alpha order. As Kittypaws says this is sooooo much easier than rummaging through stamps sets! I will often just look through my binder just to keep fresh in my mind what all I do have as it is way too much for me to remember.

Default Easier punching

I've read through these and don't think I've seen this one. Stamp an image you want on a punched out piece and then turn your punch over to line it up. If you press down just a bit, you can "grab" the cs so it doesn't move around. Reposition if necessary and then punch all the way through. This works well for faux buttons. I first punch with a small 2 hole punch and then line up a 1/2" circle punch with those two holes in the center and punch out.

You can use the little pink sample spoons from Baskin Robbins for your dipper spoons.

Default Organizing stamps

Being a type A person, I had to find a way to organize what I have. So, here are my two tips: I have a document (which can be updated) of all the sayings on my stamps. I keep it in a 3 ring binder and refer to it when I need a "special" saying. It keeps me from rummaging through all the sets.
Tip #2: I used clear report covers and stamped the images from each set with Stazon ink. I then write the name of the set on the cover as well. Keep them in a 3 ring binder too. That way, I have a record of all the stamps in each set, and I can lay the images on a card that I'm making to see how it would fit. Saves "mistakes".
Love this site!

Love this site!
I always stamp my new sets and keep them in a binder also, but I never thought to do on clear report covers. I stamp some images onto tracing vellum and keep with each set. That way they are ready to use with a stamp aligner and I can see how they fit onto a card. I like your way better, I think.

I also keep a binder full of what stamp sets I have. I put the stamps on the printer and make a copy so I can thumb through and see which ones I have when I need to make a card.

In my 3-ring binder I also keep cards (for ideas) that I get from friends, etc.

I love all the tips. I've found several that I'm already using. Thanks everyone!

Subscribing to this thread for all the GREAT ideas!

I have to go try the eyelet thing with the 1/8" punch AND the 10-sec microwave thing to fix up my Fishy Friends mounting.

Thanks ladies, and keep 'em coming!!!

These are all great!!!!
My tip is not such an exciting one, but it is one I got from someone else...when making a card...make two, then you have one to add to your "when you need a card" selection. My goal is to make some and when I have too many..I am going to take them to our Local Hospital Auxilary Gift Shop. They can sell them and the proceeds go towards hospital equipment.

Not sure if this is already in here or not. If it is please forgive me.
I hate the fact that the re-inkers from SU have white tops instead of color matching tops. I took my 1/8" punch and punched out the cordinating paper and used a glue dot to attach it to the top of the re-inker bottle. Now I can see the color without lifting the bottle.
Happy Stampin'

I have a rolodex that I use. All my stamps are stored by catagory and the rolodex is split into those same catagories. If I need a sports stamp I just spin to the sports section and there are all of my sport stamps stamped on the rolodex cards.

I hate the fact that the re-inkers from SU have white tops instead of color matching tops. I took my 1/8" punch and punched out the cordinating paper and used a glue dot to attach it to the top of the re-inker bottle. Now I can see the color without lifting the bottle.
Happy Stampin'
What an absolutely great tip! Thanks for sharing.

Especially for 2 step stamping, you can peek around the left side and see where the rubber is to place the image exactly where you want it. I place the label in the lower corner too, to remind me where the rubber is mounted.

I mount all of my stamps this way. The only downside is your stamp can wobble because it is not centered, but once you get used to this, for me, it has worked just great!! Wouldn't do it any other way.

Denise.... why not take some of the left over sticky rubber from where you trimmed your stamps and put in the other corner to balance the stamp?
Hope this helps...
God bless

Hi... I have been coloring some regular old paper towels with Kool-aid and ironing dry and then using like mulberry paper.... it leaves the "feather" look when torn... I guess you could use the food coloring.....
God bless
