Q: I’m having a difficult time using patterned papers. There are so many colors in a set that I don’t know how to make them match.
A: Try using the same shades of one color on your projects instead of having a lot of different colors that may look jumbled.
Q: I want to add some dimension to my die cut pieces. Other than 3- adhesive what can I use?
Q: I have too many photos for my layout and can’t narrow them down to just a few to put on the page. Is there something I can do with the extras?
Q: I want to stamp multiple trees onto my card, but don’t like the way they look in the background when they are stamped. Can I do something differently?
A: Stamp the background trees in a lighter ink or ink your stamp and then stamp onto a separate sheet of paper to remove some of the ink and then stamp onto the project. This will make the background images stand out less and bring your attention more to the front tree.
Q: I’m getting indents on my die cut pieces after I’ve cut them. What can I do to stop this?
A: Instead of placing the cardstock on top of the die that is facing up, reverse the layers and place the cardstock on the cutting plate and then place the die (cutting edge down) onto the paper and then finish off with the last plate and run it through your die cut machine
