Want to get an early start on holiday gifts?
Scrapbook Friend'z in Bloomington Illinois is doing their traditional Christmas workshop weekends on Oct 31-Nov 1st and Nov 7 & 8th. So ...save the date!
Both weekends are loaded with fun classes and feature holiday decor or gift items you can make and give.
Here's a little peek of my DECOR item...
the brand new yummy...graphic 45 Christmas papers
studio 490 stamps (imagine that!)
new Maya Road mini snowflakes , mini scroll and mini alphas
rock candy distress stickles
and plenty of distress inks too.
Hope to see you there...
On to the questions...and the answers...
I am new to your blog. I have a simple question. i love all the tags that you, Tim and others do but can I ask what do you do with them.... do you send them as cards, use them on gifts... just wondering.
Tags are great for demoes and more.
The surface is PERFECT for inks & trying new techniques.
Cut the top off, layer it on cardstock & it's a quick card front...
Stamp or write your sentiment on the back & it's a unique card. Who says a card has to open?
Need a quick gift tag? Tags are perfect.
It's the card & tag all in one.
If you looked @ the Ranger video I posted yesterday, I show making 2 tags with the same technique & the same colors.
Use one for the tag & the second
can be stamped & cut to make coordinating embellishments.
Plus...it's just plain fun to put them on a ring & flip thru them if you need inspiration.
Can I ask where you found the jenni bowlin papers you used on that skinny book? I can only find her large papers...
I think this is the Maya Road book you're talking about.
The 4 x 4 Jenni Bowlin papers that I used are here.
They also stock several other colors & styles...all mini and absolutely...ADORABLE!
Will your book be sold @ Barnes & Noble?
it's not actually published...
instead it's PRINTED by Stampers Anonymous.
So... it's available here on the blog, eclecticPaperie, your LSS or directly from the Stampers Anonymous site or @ their booth @ conventions.
I saw you do a flower in a reinker bottle. Where do you get the reinkers bottles?from Ranger?
I get them from the reinker drawer...see below. ha!
Yep, I have lots...and now I figured out they make adorable vases. so I save the empties.
Ranger does not sell them empty. SORRY.
I saw a photo of your workroom & it looks like you have a double tier holder form the ink applicators. Do I need special parts to attach 2 together?
Here's a look @ mine.
2 craft spinners can be stacked together to store 16 blending tools in a very small space. I LOVE IT!
No special parts are needed...here's how it fits.
The base is actually green when you buy it...
but black spray paint does wonders!
Did that heat gun ever get made again? I keep asking you. so sorry...
YES & YIPPEE...
Ranger has the heat-it tools back!
It's even quieter & hotter than the original.
I can't live without it!
If you like to emboss, it's great because it doesn't blow the embossing powder off your project.
Wendy, I just love your art - I am hooked and can't wait till your book arrives (I've pre-ordered it here in the UK from The Stamp Attic wo led me to you!) Do you have any plans to come over here?
I am working on my schedule for next year, but no plans for the UK...SORRY.
Any more question? Ask away...that's what I'm here for...
Here it comes!
