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:  How can I leave part of my card base plain when I’m using an embossing folder?

A:  If the design of the embossing folder does not have to be centered in a particular way, you can place the folder from the side of the base inwards.  If it does have a pattern that depends of the direction, place the folder in between your embossing plates so that only the plates cover the part of embossing folder that you want to have the pattern added and do not cover the part that you want left plain.

Q:  I’m new to card making and I’ve seen cards that have layers to them, but mine always turn out flat.  How can I change that?

A:  Try adding some 3-d adhesive behind some of the layers or even all of them.  For example, if you have a card with butterflies on it, add a 3-d adhesive onto the back of each butterfly to give it the effect that it’s flying.  If you have a card, that has a die cut sentiment on it, add a piece of adhesive to it to make it stand out.
