How do I keep chipboard things from moving when I ink, paint or mist it?

Scotch Double Sided Tape

Run a line of removable tape on a scrap of paper and place the item on it, spray, ink or paint the item and lift it off.

How do I keep spray mists or ink from flying everywhere?

Clearsnap Color Catcher Spritz Box

Go outside and spray your item or use a box such as the Color Catcher Spritz Box to place the item in.  It is a very handy thing to use.

What one important tip do you have for scrapbooking?

Memory Card Organizer

Back up all of your photos on a regular basis and store camera cards in a safe place such as the Pioneer Memory Card Organizer Pack.

What paper or other things can be used in a Cuttlebug?


Cardstocks and vellums can be used with the Cuttlebug or other companies dies and embossing folders, as well as, the ones made for the machine itself can be used.  Pretty much any papers are usable as long as you don’t force the machine while cutting or embossing.  You can also use thin metal sheets, thin cardboard or chipboard and even thin plastic.  The most important thing to keep in mind is the “sandwich” or way the items are stacked to go through the machine.  The basic sandwich is the A plate, one B plate, the folder with the item to be cut or embossed inside and closed and then the last B plate.
