We R Memory CropADile

Q:  When I use my Crop-A-Dile the eyelets always are squished.  Why is that?

A:  It could be that you are pressing too hard.  The Crop-A-Dile doesn’t need a lot of pressure to close the metal that eyelets are made from.

ColorBox Inks

Q: My ink sometimes smudges what can I do to prevent?

A:  Heat setting using a heat tool right after the image is stamped will help to quickly dry and set the ink to stop this from occurring.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Reinker

Q: How do I re-ink my ink pads?

A:   Reinkers to add ink to the ink pads when they dry out.  It is a simple thing to do.  The most important point to remember is to make sure that you match the correct re-inker to the ink pad by looking for the name of the ink pad such as Vintage Photo and match it to the name of the same re-inker bottle.

Spellbinders M Bossabilities

Q:  Can I use the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities in my Cuttlebug?

A:  Yes, you can use these together.   Most dies and embossing folders can be used interchangeably in all machines with a certain “sandwich” or way of stacking the cutting plates that come with the machine.  For the M-Bossabilities to be used in a Cuttlebug the sandwich needs to be:  A Plate, C Plate, the die cutting edges up, the paper and then the B Plate.  Now it is ready to use in the machine.

Cinch Machine

Q: What can the Cinch machine be used for?

 A:  The Cinch is used to bind books together using binding wire.  Photo books, journals and themed books are good examples of projects that can be created with this.

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!
