Q: Sometimes when I use my paper trimmer I still manage to cut crooked. How can I make sure that doesn’t happen?
A: Often it’s just a matter of making sure the paper is correctly lined up in the trimmer. One easy way to make the perfect cut is to use a scoring board and score a small line at the top and bottom of your paper at the inch mark you will be cutting. Place the paper in your trimmer, lining up the score marks in the blade groove and your good to go. No more crooked cuts!
Q: When should I replace my die cutting machine plates?
A: When you begin to find that the dies are not cutting through the paper as well as they should or when you start to see etching from the cuts in your plates on your cardstock is when it’s a good time to buy new ones.
Q: I want to glitter an entire stamped image. How can I do that?
Q: I’m having trouble getting my gel pen to work. What can I do?
A: Spray a little StazOn Stamp Cleaner onto a piece of paper and go over it with the pen.
Q: I love using rhinestones on my projects, but can never get them lined up correctly. Is there anything to help with that?
A: Place a small dot where you want the gem to go and then use a jewel picker to place it down on the dot. It makes it so easy to get them in place especially when doing a large number of them.
