Tuesday Tip!

Good morning! It is a wonderful fall morning...oh wait. It is still 90 degrees in Florida. Oh how I miss the changing of the seasons and the leaves! Anyways, today's Tuesday tip is about markers. If you have any double tipped markers, such as my favorite , the Stampin' Write Markers, you w
want them, to stay as nice as possible. Here is a nice little tip to keep them that way. 
Melon Mambo Stampin Write Marker - by Stampin' Up!
Be sure to store them in a cool place, out of direct heat or sunlight, and lay them flat. This will ensure that the ink is always at the ready!

Hope this helps. Happy Stamping!!

Tuesday Tip

Ever feel like your punches have gone dull? Or maybe they fuzz up or tear your edges when you try to punch through paper . Here are a few tips for fixing those issues...

To sharpen: Punch through aluminum foil every so often and it will keep your punch working as 
good as the day you bought it!
To smooth: Punch through wax paper every so often and you punch will work as smoothly as ever!

You may have to punch through each a few times to get the desired results, but it will keep your punches in great shape! Remeber, tomorrow is QA Wednesday and three random questions recieved by e-mail that are answered on the blog recieve a FREE card kit, so e-mail any and all Stampin' Up! related questions or questions about my clubs/classes for you chance to win!!

Not so mundane Monday!

This is my first not so mundane Monday. Fall is my favorite season, so most of my projects for the next several weeks are going to feature the colors or theme of Fall. This box was cased from one I saw online. It holds 10 cards with envelopes. I made 2 each of 5 different cards.  Hope you all enjoy. These are the photos, but you can find the instructions here! All the supplies used can be purchased through my online store at            nicolemahler.stampinup.net. 
If any of the instructions are unclear, please feel free to contact me and I will try to make them a little more clear! 
Happy Stamping!!
