If it’s your first time seeing this feature, each month we bring you fun facts, creative tips, and even crafty hacks about your favorite supplies and brands; you can then use these awesome tips that you learn in your next crafting projects! Are you ready to learn some fun tricks? Keep on reading!
Half Sheet Pawsitively Everything Cardstock Sleeves
Our Simon exclusive Half Sheet cardstock sleeves are the newest addition to our line of Pawsitively Everything storage collection and they are a GAME CHANGER! Anything 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ or smaller fit beautifully inside these sleeves, making them an ideal storage solution for your crafting supplies. They are made from heavy-duty plastic, which means they won’t break or split. They also feature a handy cutout at the top making it super easy to slip paper in and out as you work.
Place and Score and Place and Pierce Embellishment Wands
Did you know we now offer 2 handy little embellishment wands? They each do completely different things, which means you are probably going to *need* both!
The Place and Score embellishment wand features a wax tip on one side and a scoring tool on the other. The wax tip is amazing for handling embellishments of any size and small die cuts! The scoring tip can be used to score card bases or reinforce scoring lines on your die cuts. We also offer replacement tips for this tool if you find you need to swap it out over time.
Our companion Place and Pierce wand is extremely useful for delicate embellishments or working in tight areas, as it features a much smaller tip than the Place and Score tool. The piercing tip on the other side is amazing for getting underneath gem stickers, poking die cuts out of your dies, or weeding out the negative pieces from your die cut shapes.
We guarantee you are going to love and reach for both of these handy wands all the time!
Pastel Color Blend Cardstock
By popular demand we have brought you more of our much-loved Color Blend cardstock—this time in a rainbow of pastel colors that are oh-so-dreamy! Just like the original Color Blend cardstock assortment, this Pastel pack can be used for die cutting, hot foiling, dry embossing, heat embossing, stamping, and more!
Everyday Acetate Sentiment Strips
Have you tried our Acetate Sentiment Strips!? These toner-printed sheets are printed onto lightweight acetate, allowing you to have the option of foiling these beauties! Our new Everyday pack of acetate sentiment strips contains a wide range of useful greetings for all occasions. How fun is it to add a pop of shine on your card with a foiled greeting like this?!
I hope these tips have helped you learn a few tricks for your upcoming crafting projects… Thanks for tuning in today and spending some time with me!
Always look forward to receiving DID YOU KNOW Series; along with new tips I find techniques I had forgotten about, and these are nice reminders to use again.
Awesome tips! I need the half sheet pockets!!
Oh those half sheet pockets are such a great idea.
And I think I might ‘need’ the two wands!
The Cardstock is so pretty too.
