Top Tip Tuesday....

Hi there, I've been trying to think of some tips to add to Leanne's challenge blog
Top Tip Tuesday and thought I'd add this one.

I used to find it very difficult to get my clear border stamps straight on the acrylic block as they are so very flexible I now use this method and it works every time.

Using the grid on your cutting mat line up the block ensuring that it is sitting straight on the lines.

Now place your clear stamp on the block lining it up with the grid underneath.

I hope little tip is of use to someone.

Thanks for your visit to my blog today and don't forget if you have any tips that you use why not pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and share them with everyone. There are fab prizes to be won every week and you can pick up some Top tips from other crafters.
Happy crafting

  3. Fab tip Vee, one I will definitely be using! I do hate it when my clear stamps look straight on the block but then I have to hold it at a 'wonk' to get it straight in the card!

    Thanks for sharing with us over at Top Tip Tuesday :)
