I am a WINNER!!!!

I am so excited! I shared a tip yesterday on Oriental Stamp Arts, a yahoo group I am on and I won the Thursday tip Prize! I never win anything! I guess I can't say that any more! LOL!

Here is the tip I shared:
How often do you come up with a great tip, totally by accident?

I did this week and it was just a matter of remembering to send it. LOL! I was working on a swap card relating to chocolate and had this great background paper. Sometimes when your cutting blade is a little worn, they don't cut regular paper stock to well. I only had 1 sheet of this precious paper and it has chocolate on it. When I cut the edges, they came out frayed.....Ugh! What could I do to fix this? A lightbulb went off in my head......I have a Cuttlebug and a Sizzix Scalloped frame! I put the panel on and ran it through my CB! Viola! From this, I now had a nice rectangle piece and a frame piece, both very nicely cut. I got 2 cards out of 1 1/4 sheet panel from this. You don't even have to use this to rescue your cuts, but I was sure glad I had the option!


I am so happy that my tip was appreciated, as I almost didn't send it. I hope it helps you in your projects too! Thanks for stopping by! Oh! By the way, this tip is for the 2 cookie cards I posted yesterday!
