I always thought the metal ones were for dry embossing, with a stylus. I remember doing that by hand BEFORE embossing machines, like Cuttlebug & big Shot came out. My very first card in my gallery...

I have to laugh. We're all so different! I absolutely love the shaving cream technique, I foil all the time (best thing I ever bought for the craft room- that MINC!). I love fine detail coloring,...

Jayne,

It's pretty well explained in the first post, but yes, postage from Australia would be prohibitive. Anyway, welcome!

If I wasn't clear, I meant that in the sense of companies producing products for sale- that's business. To do that, the company needs to make a profit, or it will fail.

I understand that people...

I think the flaw in your example is that a demo is the representative of the company, and as such is entitled to share her ideas & projects with others. That said, demos also don't send you home with...

I'm very happy with my old Xacto guillotine. Bought it at least 16 years ago at an office closeout store. It's 12", and it's never gotten dull. It's wood, with lots of grid lines.
I have to admit,...

I just meant I have no appropriate person to send it to, so I'll send to somebody that it's really NOT appropriate for. (Like my 16 year old nephew?)

Renee,

Got the envelope today with the gems & stencil plastic. Thank you! I've had this idea in my head for a long time, to try cutting a sheet of stencils of clouds. Looks like I have no real...

By golly, Chris, if nobody has asked for the robots, may I have them? I'll do something and give the card to someone INappropriate! I just like the set. Sigh! Like I need more stamps......

Dawn & Chris-


I almost asked for the robot set, but really, I have no one to use it for. I can see it on an endless card for a little boy, can't you?

A9 size is my favorite, hands down. (That's an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet folded in half- to give you an 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 card)

I have always felt that A2 is too small- when I'm sending somebody a card, I want...

Stopped at a TM on New Year's Eve, on a road trip, just to look. Came out $45 poorer, with a ton of dies, and stamps.
