Craft Room Tips & Tricks-You NEED This in Your Craft Room!!!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & i hope you are all enjoying the festive period! I am really enjoying having some time off from my part time job. I have spent lots of time crafting and coming up with some lovely projects for 2018!

Today i don't have a tutorial for you but i do have a few great tips. I just want to start off by saying that i got this tip from a lady called Hannah and she is Hancrafted cards. I have put the link to Hannah's video on my Youtube tutorial.

So the fabulous tip is surgical spirit!! or rubbing alcohol. You can pick this up from chemists and its very inexpensive. This stuff is amazing for sticking your clear mount stamps to your blocks and they actually stay stuck!! It is also great for removing sticky adhesive from your scissors and framelits.



Please watch my Youtube tutorial as i demonstrate all of the above and you can see for yourself how great this stuff really is!!

Thank you!

Love
Ann xx

  5. Hi Ann - I use that stuff a lot. Am I allowed to leave another tip in echange?
    Fill the aqua painter with the stuff (or put a little bit of the surgical spirit in a small glass bowl and use a brush), press the lid of your ink pads on the colour and use the surgical spirit instead of water to paint in tiny images like watercolouring. The good thing is, surgical spirit doesn't let the paper warp. But I use it just for small areas as it dries very, very quickly. And the suface of the painted area is wonderfully smooth. I prefer using it with sharpie markers. I paint with markers on acetate and then use the surgical spirit as "water". Beautiful colours and so many choices - and no warping
