Default Flex Phrases, HELP

OK, so I got my big box yesterday and cut and mounted all 12 new sets and was working on lucky number 13, Flexible Phrases. I was watching TV with DH and thought, well I was tired and I'd just go ahead and put the stickers on the wood blocks and leave the rummber till tomorrow. So I put on all my stickers on the same side, so they could easily be seen from the top. Then I realized I had 2 long words on several blocks, like celebration and Christmas. I can't fit one on the end of the block. Now what should I do? Can I remove my stickers and replace them all? Am I screwed? I did think, well I could just put both stamps on the other side of the wood block and either mask or use markers every time I stamp, but that seems like a pain to do EVERYTIME I am going to use one of these stamps. Man why didn't I wait until light of day when I could concentrate and figure this out??? Please help me SCS Super Heros!

Default mounting

I can't help you with this problem as I have not ordered them yet.
But I am heeding all the advice about this particular set.
There is another thread yesterday about this same set. Maybe a post in it will help.
Good luck.

I've removed stickers before... just be careful peeling them up and you should be ok. If the stickers don't stick very well on the new wood, just use a little drop of crystal effects.

Hope that helps!!

Go and get some Un-Do adhesive remover. Must be the Un-Do brand! Don't be fooled by imposters.
This is a very safe, acid free, archival safe.......product.

You cover the sticker with this clear liquid and wait a few seconds. Then carefully lift the sticker off.
Now here's the great part.....
Let the sticker dry and the adhesive is active again and you can re-use the sticker no problem.

I have purchased Un-Do at Michaels (with the adhesives), Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and scrapbook stores. I can't live without it.

It is also safe for photos, won't stain cardstock, etc... A must have tool in my supplies.

I agree!! UN-DO is the ultimate goo getter-offer!! lol I used UN-DO to remove the decorative factory stickers off the sides of my brothers brand new truck!! Amazing!(he was afraid!!) No residue, no damage to paint, even after 2 years you'd never know we removed stickers!! you can use it for anything you want removed from paper too, and its scrap safe!! also its says if you remove a sticker, when its dry, you can reuse it, it will still retain its stickiness!

Ugh, looks like I've got some work ahead of me. I have a label maker, but I think my labels would be too wide to get both words on the top of the stamp....

I did this with a few of mine when I first started mounting and had to carefully peel off the stickers to place them on the right way.
If you have an edge you can get ahold of, you can probably still peel them off.

Good luck!

Nan, It worked!! Thank you so much for saying this as I had thought about it but was afraid I'd tear them and never be able to fix it then. You gave me the confidence to give it a try,c arefully. Luckily I didn't have to move too many around, so it wasn't bad after all. I was truely dreading it!
