    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Tammy asks: "Do you have any way to use leftover pieces of grip-bottom shelf liner material? There are always strips left after cutting a piece to fit a shelf."
    A: Try stamping with it to add texture to a background or a die cut, or use it for removing paint from a gel printing plate for a textured monoprint. You're right about the scraps! HERE is a sample in the gallery where the shelf liner was used for stamping a textured background.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    grammatroll has a tip for the Quilted Card tutorial: "I run the squares through my little Xyron which not only makes it quicker to adhere, but keeps the squares in one place until I'm ready for them. After punching squares for 6 cards, I had a duh moment. I'm sitting right next to my Silhouette cutting machine. Now I let my machine do the cutting."
