I guess I never answered the original question. Since I scrap pretty regularly with traditional CM scrappers, I am known as the adventurous one, the one who uses, what did the CM consultant call it?..."contraband", aka non CM products. Made me giggle. They had never seen an ATG, or ever heard of Undu. or a Cuttlebug. And they are amazed at my collection of punches, as all they ever use is a corner-rounder. I shake my head...
I love your penguin LO, Gelidy! I'm figuring the top rounded edge is deco-scissored. I have the same scissors, plus many others, but am always afraid to use them since everyone says they're passé...but I guess I don't see the difference between using them and an edge punch. Maybe that will be a 2013 resolution...start using my deco scissors. Your LO inspired me :>)
I only scrap with my daughter, but she (and Hubby) would probably say I'm known for having to buy whatever is available I don't buy a few favorite stickles...I own every color. Ditto with Liquid Pearls. Now I'm working on ink pads and fluid chalks, even though I seldom do stamping. I'm really thinking about starting a Copic collection, but knowing me, I wouldn't be content until I owned them all...and that would be expensive! And, would I ever actually use them? Probably not. I guess I'm a collector, not a scrapper ~Judy
...speaking of which...has anyone used the Martha Stewart Crafters Clay? I noticed it on the J's site and it looks interesting, but wondered if anyone had tried using it, or any other clay, for embellishments? I'm going to go see if the sb store carries it~(Just what I need...something else to buy and collect!)~Judy
Oh no, sb does carry them and I want them all...and I don't even know if they work good, but the alphabet mold looks like fun!)
Glad you liked it, Manda. I ordered the Heirloom kit for my daughter and the Nature for me, plus got her the alphabet mold. Hope I didn't waste money on them. She wanted nesties for Christmas, but figured she needed something else to play with also (and hopefully she'll bring it all to my house to play with sometime!).~Judy
Ooh. That's a good idea! I'll have to try it. I sprayed one with mists and wasn't exactly the look I wanted, but it was ok. I think too much moisture. Mica would look good. I bet could dust with chalk maybe too.
