It's very common. I love the smell of a new stamp set but I'm weird lol. Take them out of the package for a bit to let them off gass, just like new carpet or airing out rooms that have been freshly...

$1.15 for first class international letters to Canada, according to the USPS website. It then jumps to $1.61 if the letter weighs more than 3 ounces.

This happens with many of the colours that have reds in them. There's older threads talking about the "dreaded sheen" issue. I had two CTMH reds get the "dreaded sheen" and an SU inkpad as well. ...

Embossing powders do have a shelf life and the metallic versions have a shorter shelf life than the rest. On average, expect it to last two years. This might help.

Very cool but I think the one Tim Holtz demo'd at CHA has the best design features, quality and price point I've seen so far. It's open ended so only one size tool is needed for any sized paper,...

I ordered some from China off of eBay and it was under $5 for a set. They're not quite as nice as the one I have from CTMH but they work decently enough for the price.

Many say it is fine to store stamp pads vertically but I've had some leak, even SU pads. I think it could be hit and miss as to whether the ink follows gravity downhill.

The oxide inks caught my eye and the Tonic Stamp Platform (hinged stamp positioner). I think that will blow all the other brands right out of the water. It has a lot of great features and the price...

I squirt a spray of homemade stamp cleaner on the stamp while on the Misti, take my CTMH brush to it, and then stamp the stamp on the wet Absorber until it stamps clear, if it doesn't the first time.

From all my reading, acyrlic stains are best used for vinyl, so I've never tried oil based stains. Google the PVPP method using a vinyl stencil and it works great. Paint (stain)/vinyl/paint (mod...

I've used it as a transfer tape when working with vinyl stencils made on my Silhouette. It is definitely a game changer. Very useful.

These sizes are great for making cards larger than A2. Many a time I've gone to make a 5X7 card and the folders were too small. 6x6 and above are great for 5x7 cards.
