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!

Q: My die cutting machine plates are warped and is causing my dies to warp.  Is that a problem?

A:  It’s best to keep one die cutting plate that is not used for cutting and place that at the bottom of the stack.  Lay the die face up and then the paper on top of it and the warped plate on top.  The bottom plate will remain flat allowing the die to stay that way, too.

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!
