Plaid Stencil Simply Scroll

Q: How can I store my stencils?

A:  Place the brass ones on their sides in a decorative box that you have made to match your craft room or in a storage container.  For the plastic stencils, use a decorative file folder to help prevent them from getting bent.

American Crafts 12 x 12 in. Cardstock Duotone Glitter Oatmeal

Q: I’m having trouble getting glitter paper to cut all the way through with my dies.

A:   You can place the die on the back side of it and run it through the machine that way or glue a piece of cardstock to back and then die cut.  You may have to run it through several times each time rotating the position of the paper and die in your machine until it cuts all the way through.

American Crafts Zing! Embossing Powder 1 oz. Glitter Blue

Q: I can’t get my embossing powder to melt evenly.  What can I do differently?

A:  Heat the piece from the backside and instead of moving the heat tool move the paper along the stamped lines over the top of the heat tool only moving it when the area you are working on has melted to a shiny look.

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!
