Ranger Stamp Dylusions Two Heads Are Better Than One

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.

Plaid Stencil Handmade Charlotte Paisley Delight

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.

Plaid Acrylic Sealer Mod Podge Aerosol Matte 12oz

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.

Paper Accents Protective Pouch with Adhesive

 

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.

Scor Pal Tool Eighths Measure & Score Paper Board

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.

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!
