Dreamweaver Stencils with Paste Spreader

At the 2011 Winter CHA Show Kristi Parker Van-Doren demoed the use of the Paste Spreader. Look at the ease with which she spreads the paste. When using the icing spreader, you really can't go back over the paste as you can with this new spreader. I always have a tendency to do that. I don't know about you, but I think this is a great improvement over the icing spreader that has been used in the past.

Smooch Spritz Demo at Alvin & Co. Booth

We stopped at the Alvin booth at the 2011 Winter CHA Show and had the pleasure of meeting a very sweet person who was demoing Smooch Spritz. I liked what she did with the die cuts as a resist and as an embellishment.

Tim Holtz Demos Distress Stains at the 2011 Winter CHA Show

The first booth that we visited when the CHA show opened was the Ranger booth to see Tim Holtz. He was gracious as usual in letting me make a video of his demo. If you ever get an opportunity to take one of his classes, be sure to sign up. He is such a great teacher! In this video Tim displays the use of his new Distress Stains. All of the 12 colors are currently in stock.

2011 Winter CHA Show with Tsukineko

Our lovely demonstrator, Kazuko, showed us several of the newest Tsukineko products. I first asked about the StazOn Metallic Pads. She then expanded her demo to include GlazOn. I had GlazOn in the shop, but it is currently sold out. More will be coming soon.

Nail Polish Reactor

In this category, Reviving Old Techniques, I plan to make a video each month to show an old technique. There are so many blogs which focus on new techniques that I thought it would be interesting and informative to relive some older ones. I will be taking these techniques from older issues of stamping magazines or maybe from some old notes made at conventions from years ago. I hope you will enjoy this concept and let me know what you think about it. Then go try out the technique and let me know how you did.
