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.
