    Q: Gavin asks: "I’ve just bought white pearl stickers to put on my cards, can I colour these with Copic markers to change them up a bit?"
    A: You can! I've switched to just buying clear and white embellishments now. They're so easy to color with alcohol markers or inks to match any project. White matte enamel dots and clear rhinestones are my favorites for this little trick.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Debi is ready to make some Altered File Folders: "This is super cool. I was given a stack of folders with prongs on them already and had no idea what to do with them. Thanks for the idea! Some of the ones I got in the stack have 3 pages (front, back and middle has prong on one side). I think this will be better than I expected."
