Creating a pin.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! I decided to create a pin from the magnolia done on shrink paper.

Watch the video to see how it’s done. https://youtu.be/n_qeyweFXvE

Cooking with the heat tool.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you used the heat tool to cook? I know we use it to melt the embossing powders, but you can also use it to “cook” shrink paper (shrinky dinks). It will shrivel and turn but keep it steady and it will flatten back out. Tip: Have a tweezer nearby to help flatten out what you need to.

Storage options!

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today’s blog post is not really a tutorial for a creation but instead how to get organized. In case you haven’t noticed Stampin’ Up! has a new storage system.

And here’s what it looks like in my studio…

I love that all the markers, pencils, and blends are in the same place.

Here is the video link for how it goes together and some questions answered. https://youtu.be/WImPQFP9TDo

Outlining while punching.

Have you ever wanted a clean line around the edge of your punched image?  If you sponge after you just seem to get the whole image inked?  Try outlining the image before you punch.  Here’s how…

  1. Grab a piece of cardstock and stamp whatever image you want.
  2. Place in punch but do not cut.20180508_072206_wm
  3. Grab whatever color marker and depending on how fine a line is what tip you will use. (Brush tip used here.)
  4. When outlining make sure to pinch the paper so it doesn’t move, but doesn’t cut.20180508_072322_wm
  5. Now punch or cut out.20180508_072332_wm
  6. Make sure to wipe ink off of edges of punch.  I used a baby wipe.

Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!
