2 Shopping tips!
Here are my tips of the day! Instead of buying the large acrylic blocks that are used for cling & acrylic stamps, visit JoAnn's, use a coupon & get these quilters squares. The name brand giant size blocks that I've seen, sell for between $16 & $20. YIKES! This 6 inch square sells for $3 after the coupon. The advantages?? The grid lines for easy placement of stamps. It's sooo easy to line up alphabets or multiples on them. Then, when your stamps are perfectly aligned, use the grid lines on your card edge for a perfectly straight image every time. JoAnn's sells 2 brands & the only difference is the color of the lines & the price. This one is called EASY SQUARE JUNIOR. The other is Omnigrid & is double the price. So...save $$ on the acrylic...more $$$ for chipboard & stamps!! That's how it works in my mind...agree??
And another recent shopping find. Beacon's FELT glue. It's a GREAT product. I got it @ Michael's for $3. It does not seep into the fabric & holds really well. I used some yesterday on Maya Road Ric Rac , felt & the Velvet blossoms & I LOVED it!
And the final thought..Obviously I'm a slow learner. We wasted 3 hours last night watching the BEARS look like fools AGAIN! Oh well...I'll survive....I still have my STAMPS!!
Have a GREAT weekend.
ps...edited...to answer several emails asking about Maya Road & why there have been no photos. SORRY!! Top secret stuff. I've been working away at least 10 hours a day making MR samples for CHA, but...no sneak peeks are allowed...I'd be fired! Just as soon as I get the OK, I'll post them here. My guess is early February or possibly late January. Thanks for asking! WAYYYYY cool stuff is coming...............HA!
