Got Frustration?

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

You will LOVE this tip!

Hey Stampers! I guarantee I'm going to help you end some frustration today. It is something with which all of us “bling” lovers struggle…guaranteed!

How many of you open a package of Stampin' Up! Basic Rhinestone Jewels or Pearls, take off the ones you need and then struggle getting the sheet back into the cellophane packaging? Either the glue on the top of the package sticks to the sheet of bling or it sticks to some of the little jewels and pulls them off the sheet. Am I right?

Here's my tip. (I wish I had thought of it but a stamping friend shared it with me). Instead of opening the sealed end of the package, take your Paper Snips and cut off a little sliver on one or both sides of the package. As you need some bling, just slide out the sheet, remove the jewel/s or pearl/s and slide it back in when you're done. Easy, peasy…no sticking!

Hope this little tip is helpful!

Tool Tip – Silicone Craft Sheet

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips

Hey stampers! I have the best tool tip for you today…seriously!

On Page 182 of Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog lies something that will make one of your papercrafting “challenges” disappear…no really…no fooling!

It doesn't look like much, I'll give you that. But, this silicone craft sheet will help you get glue from your Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Fine-Tip Glue Pens onto your project but not onto your fingers and places on your project not meant for glue. Here's how:

Place those detailed images you've cut from your favorite framelits and thinlits dies face down onto the sheet. Squirt out a small bit of the glue onto one corner of the sheet. Take a piece of Stampin' Sponge and dab onto the glue. Then “pounce” the glue onto the back of the die-cut piece. Carefully slip a bone folder, paper piercer or your fingernail under the piece and then transfer it to your project. You won't have glue on your fingers,  the glue on the mat will dry and you'll brush it away…voila! No more sticky fingers and ruined glue-laden projects!

Have trouble when making flowers or other 3D embellishments? This little gem helps with that, too. You can easily assemble your embellishment–just put a dot of adhesive on the sheet, use both hands to assemble the embellishment, then pop it off the sheet when the glue is dry.

I know you are going to want to add one of these nifty little silicone craft sheets to your next order.
