Just a couple of tips for now.

by Pat Scoble
(New Zealand)

I have used clear glass making liquid to make my flowers shiny, clear nail polish with glitter in it and clear full gloss varnish.


I also do Autumn leaves from the trees and shrubs. They look fab.

I bought a thick magnetic sheet that's used for fridge magnets. Cut it to the size I wanted and mounted it on a clear mount for stamps with double sided tape, and use it for picking up small dies.

I make my own pouches for any dies that don't have solid packaging. I go to my local shop that does laminating and ask for scraps.

They will usually give to you for free. I cut it into stripes 5" wide, and bone fold it 5"-5"-2 1/2. You can make them any size you want.

I get cheap tape from the 2 dollar shop to bind the sides together and the smallest bulldog clips to hold it closed.

Good morning Pat

Your tips are truly handy to know.
I also go to my local printers and ask for left over card which sometimes big enough to make a card. Sometimes in a colour that I have not got which I make flowers from. I also use the thin cream lipsticks to put streaks into my flowers which are very effective. I have also replaced my rubber cutting mat with the non slip sheets of honeycomb rubber purchased from the £1 shops.

Keep on sending your tips always good to experiment
