PHINDYS PLACE CHALLENGE


This week's challenge at Phindy's Place is an easy one - just add ribbon.


For this post I have used BEAR HUG available here.


Thought I'd just mention that I have just invested in some Perfect matting and square to help with precision of cutting giving more uniformity to your cards.  I have to admit I found it quite difficult to cut the Co-ordinations as it is quite a heavy cardstock.  I found that the Tim Holtz craft knife wasn't very good - had more luck with my Cuttlebee knife but unfortunately I found when I went to change the blade that the screw-in part of the knife has a tiny piece broken off so now have a broken craft knife and a whole pack of replacement blades!


What a nightmare trying to get replacement blades - I think I have got half a dozen craft knifes - everytime I used all the blades up I find I can't get the replacement blades for the particular knife I have and finish up buying yet another.  Decided this time I am going to get a Stanley knife as there is never any problem getting blades to fit.  Just have to be extra careful not to lose a finger as they are extremely sharp!
