Anyway, so glad you stopped by. I have a couple of tips for you today that are some oldies but goodies. My first tip for the day is about releasing stubborn paper from some of your wafer-thin die cuts, like Spellbinders and Quickutz, that have not or cannot be foamed. I have some very intricate label dies from Spellbinders that really cannot be foamed because, if you foam them, then you cannot emboss with them after die-cutting. So, if you place a piece of wax paper between the paper and the die, it will help the paper release more easily.

And how about storing all of those embossing folders you own. I found that a DVD storage box works perfectly for storing my embossing folders. They are just the right size and hold quite a few. I like to place a label with the name of the embossing folder at the top so I can flip through them to see what I have. The label is on the outside of the folder, so I won't affect the embossing in any way.
I got these boxes at Wal-mart in the office section. They came in different colors.
Well, once again, thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful week, and check back on Monday to see my newest Robin's Nest Design Team project posting.
