Tool Tip Thursday – Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

What do you do when you have a little piece of card stock and you go to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (Item #101049) and the piece of card is too small to hold still under the jig?

Use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig’s best friend – the post-it note!

Stick your card stock to the work surface with one or two post-it notes.  Line up your Stamp-A-Ma-Jig as you normally would – know that the card will not move because the post-it note has it secured.

This is especially useful for stamping a sentiment on a thin strip of card.

Place the post-it over the strip
Line up the positioning sheet
Place the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig over the corner of the positioning sheet
Remove the positioning sheet and stamp the image

This eliminates the need to stamp the image and then cut off excess card afterwards.

Tool Tip Thursday – Cleaning your Stampin’ Scrub?

Yes, you can clean your Stampin’ Scrub (#126200) easily!

Every once in a while, you should clean the pads of your Stampin’ Scrub so that it’s easier to clean your stamps and your fingers won’t get dirty as you clean your stamps. It’s easy to do.

Here’s how:
To remove the cleaning pads, all you need to do is place a bone folder or similar tool under the pad so that you can slip the pad out from under the little tabs along two of the sides.

Run the pads under water in your kitchen sink until they run clear.

DO NOT put the pads in your dishwasher as they will warp!

Let the pads sit on a paper towel until they are dry. This will take a few hours or over night.

Carefully replace the pads by placing one side under the tabs and gently curling the pad till you can get the other side under the opposite tabs.

Remember to replace the pads in such a way that you can still see the wet and dry symbols.
