  • FABULOUS, Carrie! What timing I have a project coming up with the letter press! Great minds think alike! LOL!!

  • Thanks Margie!

    That was really great. I had no idea you could do so many things with an embossing folder. I especially like the letter press technic. Thanks

  • Oh yes! There are even more techniques you can use embossing folders for. We just showed a few examples!

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

  • Hsiu, this could be possible because Opera is not a well used Browser. To get a website and blog to comply under all browsers is a difficult task. I will tell our web programmer, but I would also recommend to use google chrome which is very fast as well, OR firefox are the browsers of our choice for site viewing.

    I enjoyed your demo with the folders. One question I have: What do you use for adhesive on vellum that will not show on the good side? Also, when I cut a die and I use wax paper it sometimes leaves a beautiful piece – I would like to save it and use it – have you found this when you work with a die? Another project to what to use for adhesive. I have zyroned it but that doesn’t seem to work very well as the wax paper is too delicate. TAL for your reply.

  • I use a velum tape which you can find at most craft and hobby stores or online. You can use this as well with the wax paper cut outs that you want to save and use! I have used my wax paper cut outs. There are some that are just to pretty to toss!
