If You Love the One Sheet Wonder…

Facebook LIVE/ Papercrafting/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

how about the Double Wonder?

I made all these cards using 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper, each sheet cut in half. I was making tons of cards so that's why I used two sheets, but when Shannon West of the Stampin' Up! home office showed this project, she just used one sheet, cut it half.

You won't believe how easy this is and, on Facebook “live” tonight I'm going to step through it all with you. I'll even provide you with a picture of my template.

Join in the fun tonight, June 30, 2020 at 7:00 PM CST on my Facebook page. There's no charge for this class, just a bit of your time! 🙂

Fast Fuse…..check!

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips/ Videos

Stampin’ Up!’s Fast Fuse (129026) is fantastic for projects which need a stronger adhesive than SNAIL (multi-layered cards, boxes, and other 3-D projects) with the convenience of a runner adhesive. However, the adhesive is quite sticky and sometimes does not come off the project or “break” when you want.  When this happens, you often end up with a sticky mess of stretched and/or clumped adhesive.

Use my “fast fuse…check” tip: When you use the runner  on your project, and get the length you need, instead of just stopping (which is where this extra-sticky adhesive often stretches) do this extra “check” step: stop, and then with a slight downward pressure make an upward move with the runner at a right angle. It’s as if you were making a check mark – adhesive going down with the first motion, and releasing and breaking the adhesive with the second motion. This will give you a much more satisfactory result.

This short video will give you a quick tutorial!
