Q: What is a good way to keep my die sets together?
A: Magnetic sheets work perfectly for holding them and then you can place them in a binder or folder to store them.
Q: I need to hold my project in place, but don’t need it to be permanent. What can I use that won’t rip or tear what I’m working on?
A: Painter’s Tape is great to use. Stick it to a towel to remove some of the tackiness before applying it to your project and when you are finished it can easily be removed.
Q: My embossing/die cutting machine isn’t embossing all of the paper. Is there a problem with it?
A: It may be that the die cutting/embossing pads are warped and is not allow the folder to be pressed in between the rollers. It may be time to purchase new plates.
Q: My tape runner is always leaving a glob of glue on my project. What am I doing wrong?
A: Make sure you are holding it at the correct angle and pull directly towards you when you reach the end of what you are working on. Don’t pull upward or it will pull the tape off the paper and snap it creating the glob.
Q: I can’t get my circle cutter to cut correctly. It isn’t cutting all of the way through. What can I do differently?
A: It is best to use a glass mat with this type of cutter. The blade will glide smoothly across the glass and not catch the paper.
