Q: I’d like to have some cards ready for those last minute occasions. What is any easy way to have these to grab quickly?
Q: I have a lot of fabric scraps that I’d like to use on my paper craft projects. Do you have any ideas on how to use them?
A: You can adhere the fabric onto cardstock and then die cut them to create embellishments for cards and scrapbook pages. The fabric sheets by Canvas Corp. are great to use, too. This is a great way to keep mementos of favorite items of children to place on a scrapbook page.
Q: I have seen scrapbooking paper used on furniture. What kind of glue should I use to do that?
A: Mod Podge is great to use for this idea. It not only adheres the paper, it also seals it. It comes in a gloss and matte finish so it is perfect for any type of project.
Q: I love to color in the coloring books. How can I use them with my paper crafts?
A: Fussy cut around a colored image and add it to the front of a card or use a die to cut a shape from an image and use it. Cut a large image out and use it behind a photo on a scrapbook page. They make great embellishments, too.
Q: Is there a way to do a stamped image without having an outline done in ink?
A: Color the stamp with watercolor crayons after wiping it with a damp paper towel. Mist the stamp with water before placing the image onto the paper. It is best to use watercolor paper for this since it will absorb the water better and be sure to keep the stamp level when placing it onto the paper so the water and color does not run off.
