    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Kathy asked: "Several of my favorite acrylic blocks are a bit stained with Stazon and Craft White Ink; how do I clean them? They don't wash as well as the acrylic stamps and I didn't think that scrubbing them with an abrasive cleaner was the way to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated."
    A: For the Stazon, the Stazon cleaner should help to clean off smudges on your acrylic block. I wash off my acrylic block with hot water or even just use a baby wipe when I get craft ink on it. That cleans it off for me.

    Harriet has a suggestion for Cami's Trifold card: "I made this card yesterday. The first time following the directions; the second time making it larger. I cut my paper 5 1/2" x 11". I used the same fold lines. I was pleased with the final results."
