Answering your Questions!!! and News!!!


I've had such a fantastic response to my magnets tutorial thank you and I really should have given more info about the supplies I used, I've been very busy lately so here goes....

Supplies: Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Creeper Crew ~ Monday; Tuesday; Wednesday; Thursday; Friday; Jack;
Ink: Memento: black; Copic marker's: various colours;
Dies: Spellbinders nestabilities: squares;
Other: Tim Holtz: Fragments; Glossy accents; Adhesive stones; Viva decor: glitter liner; double sided adhesive sheet; 3D foam sheet; Various magnets;
 
 
hints & tips: you can pop the bubble in the glossy accents with a pin before you leave it to dry! You can use larger images just by cutting them into sections like the above picture! The circle magnets I have adhered with glossy accents. You can buy adhesive magnetic sheet which you can cut to any size, or magnet strip on a roll, the Basic Grey magnetic snaps will work too... there's plenty available from office supplies and craft shops!
 
 
I also had a question about the stand on my Simon Says Stamp and Show birdcage project, there's still plenty of time to enter, I am loving everyone's winged creations!!! ~ anyway, I thought it's easier to show you...
 
Hold your cardstock onto the die with a little masking tape
leave the cut waste in the die you want this to line up your next cut
Lay your card stock over the last cut piece and secure with the tape! then cut.

Hints & tips:  I scored each piece in half first and adhered five together, with the score lines to the centre to form a pointed star... then I cut the decorative edge using the above method! Hope it helps!

 
If you have any questions feel free to ask anytime, even on older projects and I will answer as best I can!

Thanks so much for sharing the process you used to create your birdcage stand. It is totally ingenius. I never, in a million years, would have figured out that you did it like that - very, very cool. Thanks again, Kim!
