Can you salvage an ink pad that has been re-inked with the wrong color?

Q:  I used the wrong re-inker on my ink pad.  Is it ruined?

A:  No, it’s not ruined.  Wash it out with warm water and let it dry completely and then re-ink it with the correct color.

What's the difference between General Purpose Tape and Acid Free Tape?

 Q: What is the difference in tapes that are used in the Scotch Tape Glider?

A:  The Acid Free tape is used by those who do scrapbooking because it is acid free making it safe for photos.  The General Purpose tape is used by card makers and those who do other types of paper projects.

Can you use markers on stamps?

Q: Can I use markers on stamps?

A:  Yes.  Make sure that they are water soluble markers so they wash off easily.  The stamp may be left discolored, but that is okay.  When using them, be sure to use the side of the marker for a better and easier coverage.

What is a mist?

Q: What are mists used for?

A:  They can be used for many things such as creating a colored background or a patterned paper.  Use them with stencils for a new type of image.

What type of glue do you use with chipboard?

Q: What type of glue should I use on chipboard?

A:  There are several brands of glue and even adhesives that are good to use on chipboard pieces.  Mono Tombow Glue and Martha Stewart’s Ballpoint Tip Glue are two good choices.  Double sided tape works well, too.  For larger pieces, I would recommend Mod Podge or Aleene’s Tacky Glue for a stronger hold.

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!
