What Is Your Best TOP TIP?

Well I have been thinking about this for a while... and we all have our own top tips so why don't we share more of them.

So if you are visiting my site.. please leave me a message with your TOP TIP and we can all have a go!

Here are some that I like...

*  Use a glue pen for embossing instead of those darn embossing pens..the nibs always go out of shape and then they dry up!

*  Talcum powder my page down first before heat embossing.. this stops it all going everywhere.. even before glittering and makes it easier to pour  back into their pots!

*  Want shimmer paper or card.. but not got the shimmer pots they advertise.  Well get a shimmer eye shadow  and a soft brush and dust over your paper... perfecto!  Oh you might have to enlarge the photo to see but wow what a difference.. try it!

Here are some photos to prove it.....

Want a way to seal your envelopes with out tape... use .. it took me a while when I started crafting to find this stuff.. but is brilliant!  Make your envelope.. run this across the top of your envelope flap and leave to dry.. hey presto when you sell your card your customer can seal when they like.. just like a professionally made one!


Stuck for an embossed paper and run out of idea.. nip down to your local DIY store and get some wall paper samples... they add texture and dimension along with colour to any card!


What is your favorite tip.. share it with us in the comments.. thanks x
