Q: My stamped image is blurry. What happened?
A: It’s possible that you are pressing on the stamp to hard making the cut edges of the image flair out causing the distortion. Try using just a light pressure when you stamp.
Q: My stencil won’t stay down and lets the ink get under the edges. What can I use to stop this?
A: Basting spray used by quilters holds the stencil down more securely even at the edges. It’s holds securely, but won’t stick to the paper.
Q: I want to add an old document to my scrapbook page, but I don’t want it to deteriorate. Is there anything I can use to prevent that?
A: Mod Podge Matte Sealer by Plaid is used to seal special and important documents that you’d like to have on your projects. It is a clear sealant that can be used on many other projects, too.
Q: I want to add a few mementos to my scrapbook pages such as a baby bracelet and a birth announcement. What can I use to protect them?
A: There are pockets that are made just for that purpose. They are adhesive on the back so they are easily placed on a scrapbook page or on the cover of a photo album.
Q: My cardstock cracks and leaves an opening after I score it. What am I doing wrong?
A: A good way to prevent this from happening is to fold the card the opposite way of the score. The part of the cardstock that was pressed into the grooves on the scoring board should end up being on the inside when it is folded.
