I use my Xyron. I have the 5" one. If your piece fits through, then you have a coating of adhesive on the back that can't be seen.

I just got my backup. Now I feel I need a backup for the backup, but that's just my crazy kicking in.

I haven't unboxed it yet, so don't know if I got a dud.

I can't imagine what they would be working together on, but I suppose if Lydia says they will be, she would know, being privy to MSP goings on.

I confess, I am well and truly aggravated. I never...

Well, I ordered one off of Amazon. I will be sure to unbox it and check it when I get it.

Hard to imagine this notion of "working together" is anything but Tonic saying "Okay, you take the US market and we'll concentrate on the UK and Europe." It's impossible to imagine them creating an...

In Versafine Clair, Tulip Red is a warm red, Glamourous is a pinky red. I find the most neutral red to be the old Satin Red in the Versafine. But that's me. YMMV.

Adriana, if 12x12 white is what you want, you can get the Darice 110 lb or the 120 lb. I got both on Amazon. That is a clever way to do a 5X7 if you want a top fold! I have always just done a...

I found the My Colors heavyweight JoAnn paper and it was listed as 1600 ounce weight which is equivalent to 100 lb.

Think I might be looking for the proverbial white whale. (But in color!)

I find 100 lb a bit too light for a card base. I'll have to look at JoAnns online.

NOTE: Just looked online at JoAnns and didn't see 12x12 in colors that specified 110 lbs. I also checked the...

Shaz, I only tape when I know the image is going to need several restampings and I don't feel like repositioning between stampings. I recently did a BG for a tag using a Concord and 9th 2-part plaid...

Clear stamps do seem to "grab" the paper more than rubber. If I find my paper lifting, I tape it down with painter's tape using small pieces in a couple of stategic spots along the edge, along with...

For small dies I only crank an inch or two in and then reverse. On both my Big Shot and Vagabond. There’s no need for the platform to go all the way through.
