    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Gloria asks: "is there any issue with storing ink pads on their sides?"
    A: I have dozens of different kinds of inkpads stored away on their sides to save space, and I haven't noticed any difference in their performance. One note though - I did add either a rubber band or strip of tape to hold some of my older pads closed that are hinged or don't close tightly.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Karen was inspired by last week's Vintage Camper Card: "So creative and not complicated!! Love that I can use what I already have. Thanks so much."
