Stamps

Today since im stamping for a swap in my Scrapbook swap group todays lesson is 
Cleaning Your Stamps
Picture this . . .You've just contaminated your yellow stamp pad with blue ink after forgetting to clean off your stamp. That's one reason why it is a good idea to get into the habit of cleaning your stamps after each use, especially when changing colors.
The handiest method for cleaning stamps is with a bottle of stamp cleaner with a scrubber or roll-on applicator top. Apply the cleaner directly to the stamp, and then scrub it off onto a household sponge. Blot the stamp dry with a paper towel.
Another method of cleaning stamps is to rub them over the surface of a damp sponge. A cellulose sponge works best because it does not break down or "lint up" your stamps. The sponge may be dampened with plain water, or a drop or two of dish soap can be added. Keep the sponge in a plastic container with a cover so it's ready at all times. Occasionally rinse the sponge out in water. This method of cleaning works well for water-soluble inks.
Alcohol-free baby wipes also work well for cleaning stamps.
S T A M P I N '   T I P S
  • If you will always be using the same color of ink with a stamp, there is no need to clean it.
  • Learn the difference between "clean" and "stain-free". Certain types of ink will stain the rubber die of your stamp. Memories ink, because of its superior quality, does not readily come completely off the rubber surface of the stamp. Clean the stamp as thoroughly as possible and do not be concerned if a stain remains. It will not affect the stamping quality of your stamp, and it can be used with any of the light shades of ink, without polluting the next pad.
  • Reds, yellows and oranges can often be tapped away on scratch paper
    without further cleaning. You may also get rid of excess ink this way
    before cleaning a stamp.
  • Do not soak your rubber stamps in water to clean them. It will loosen the adhesive. Taken from website www.stampin.com

found this on here site as well

http://joyslife.com/CricutCartChecklist.html

seen this from Joys life page and decided to share

Cricut Blade Settings

The Regular Blade Housing that comes with the Cricut is Green, unless you have a colored Cricut then it is most likely the color of your machine.
(following info is from Cricut)
The Cricut is really just a paper/cardstock cutter. A range of vellum to Bazzill is very safe. Other products may be tried, both of the thinner or thicker variety, but results are not guaranteed. In fact, using something extreme will most likely void the warranty. We don’t say that to scare you away from experimenting, but there are just too many materials out there to know what the results would be.

That said, the basic guidelines are that the material (paper or otherwise) needs to be stiff and firm enough for the blade to drag through it. So a more stretchy fabric would probably not work, unless it had Wonder-Under or something to keep it in place.  Pages 14 and 15 in your Cricut user manual address the various recommended settings for blade length, speed, and pressure settings to use while cutting various types of paper.

Here are some Cricut recommended paper settings to try:
Cricut™ Paper Settings
65#80#Bazzill
Speed = MaxSpeed = HighSpeed = Low
Pressure = HighPressure = MaxPressure = Max
Blade Depth = 4Blade Depth = 5Blade Depth = 6

Deep Cut Blade Settings:

The deep cut blade is recommended for:

Magnet (0.035″/0.80mm thick) with the recommended settings of
Speed 3 (medium)
Pressure 5 (max)
Depth 6
Multi Cut 4
Chipboard (0.059″/1.50mm thick) with the recommended settings of
Speed 3 (medium)
Pressure 4 (high)
Depth 6
Multi Cut 5
Stamp (0.0415″/1.05mm thick) with the recommended settings of
Speed 3 (medium)
Pressure 4(high)
Depth 4.6
Multi Cut 1


Remember to REMOVE THE RUBBER ENDED TIP before using your new blade!!! That tip is covering the blade. The rounded end goes up into the housing. When you push down that little plunger at the top, the magnet inside will pull the rounded end securely into the housing.

Color wheel gotta teach a class on this so thought id share

Color Wheel
Below is an article on the color wheel. There are also a few links, after the article, regarding the wheel.
How do you choose the colors in your scrapbook papers?
Introduction to the Color Wheel


Have you ever noticed the tremendous impact that color itself can have on your scrapbook pages? Color can make a page have a "mood." A brightly colored page may look happy. A page done in pastel colors could remind you of a baby. Or, putting dark colors on a page could make it look too dreary for the pictures.
Colors have their own personalities and strengths. In consideration of these personalities and strengths, colors of paper and embellishments used on your scrapbook pages can either complement or compete with those photos of your precious memories. Colors can also complement or compete with the other colors on the page!
Knowing how to choose and use color on your scrapbook pages just might be the most fundamental resource to successful scrapbooking. Fortunately, once you know the "rules" of color, it isn’t very hard.
In this article, we will discuss the basics of color, the color wheel, and terminology of color. These are important to understand because your scrapbook pages are made using dyes and pigment colors, and colors give consistent results when mixed. These consistent results will also be applicable to layers of vellum, if of appropriate thickness; as well as paints, chalks, and other coloring media that can be mixed. The basics of how colors work will give you a solid foundation of familiarity for learning the "rules" of color. The color wheel helps us understand how all the pieces fit together, and the terminology gives us even more competency in the variations of colors.

1. The Color Wheel
The color wheel is like a rainbow that has been made into a circle to show how all the colors work together and are made from each other. Small color wheels are quite inexpensive, so if you don’t have one, I highly recommend getting one! This is a valuable asset to learning and understanding the nuances of color. My favorite is the Pocket Color Wheel, available online and at craft store.
Basic Wheel









2. The Colors
With pigments and paints, there are six "basic" colors. The first three are the Primary Colors. You may like to think of these as the "original colors." The Primaries are Red, Yellow, and Blue. They are the original Primary Colors because you cannot mix other colors to get the Primaries. You musthave Red paint to get Red. You cannot make Red from any of the other colors. The same goes for Yellow and Blue. Additionally, Red, Yellow and Blue are the foundational colors from which all other colors are mixed.

Primary Colors

The color wheel shows how all the other colors are made from the Primary colors. When you combine the Primary Colors of Red, Yellow and Blue, you can make new colors called the Secondary Colors. These are completely new colors, so they have totally new names. The Secondary Colors are Orange, Green, and Violet. If you take a Secondary color and mix it with a Primary, you get a Tertiary Color. The names of these colors are: Red-Violet, Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, Yellow-Green, Blue-Green,and Blue-Violet.

. Color Wheel - Scrapbooks

You will notice that the names of the Tertiary colors are the names of the Primary and Secondary colors that were mixed to make them, always beginning with the name of the Primary Color and ending with the name of the

Color Wheel - Scrapbooks

Secondary Color. These are all the basic colors. You can make variations of these colors, but from here there are no new colors on the color wheel. 3. Neutral Colors and Color Variation Terminology The Neutral Colors are Black, White and Gray. They are not on the color wheel because they are neutral and independent from the Primary Colors. Neutral Colors coordinate with all colors. Neutral Colors do not "clash" with any colors. Neutral Colors also do not "make" any "new" colors by mixing them together. Neutral Colors do produce variations of existing colors.
