It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! While the Take Your Pick Tool is intended for picking up things like embellishments and little bits I am not sure it is intended for pulling things out of nooks and crannies. If you have a punched out piece that gets stuck consider using your tool. It grabs it without bending a corner.
So you have done it! It…the enchanting word “it”. You have managed to jam that cardstock into that punch and it won’t come out. The springs are stuck and nothing is working. You have dropped it gently on to the table, floor, or whatever other hard surface you have. And those springs won’t budge! I don’t want to call Joni to order a new one. I want new product from the new catalog, not to waste money on something that is not working because I wasn’t careful.
So, for your last attempt before you call me, throw your punch (and whatever else is attached) into the freezer. Yes, the freezer. Give it a few minutes and see if that helps. Often when metal gets cold it will contract. This will give the springs enough space to release and you will get a do over. You will get your happily ever after and get to order new toys instead of replacing your broken ones.
If you have to give this a try please comment and let me know if this works for you.
There is always a bunch going on…but this week is Card Class! And next week is Serina’s Darling Punch Box Class!
Card Class invitations went out very late this time and I apologize. I’ve had illness, two birthdays, and the school year finishing. It was enough that I thought of cancelling, but I am not a quitter. And I am better now, thankfully. And I had cards in my head that needed to be created. And, I am hoping, you look forward to this. So, we are off to the races. One side note, if you regularly attend Yucca Valley’s session I will be e-mailing you directions for the new location.
Serina’s Punch Box Class is on Wednesday, June 20th from 1-4! We will be creating 18 cards so you can get done and enjoy sitting poolside for the rest of the summer.
Both invitations are out! If you were not invited just ask me for a copy of the details.
If you would like to order online please use host code Y9H7NWTT to help Jodi earn FREE products! If you prefer to order in person please contact me. This order will be submitted next Monday the 18th at 9 pm.
We all know how to use a punch. We know that you can pop them up, use them for gift tags, stretch them out by cutting them in half, etc. But did you know that punching something out and leaving the hole can also be a great focal piece. Join me tonight on Facebook Live at 7 pm to learn how to create something stunning from a negative piece.
For those of you that have attended any of my classes you will often hear me say “stamp first then punch”. If you stamp it crooked you can still punch it crooked too making the end result straight. Just a little technique for you that will come in handy for this Thursday’s card.
