Creativation Favourite! Gina K Foil Mates!

09:00


Hi Crafters,
today I'm super excited because I was able to finally get my hands on something that really impressed me at Creativation in Phoenix! As stated in my video, I've avoided the foiling technique because I thought I needed expensive machines and a laser printer, I was so excited to see this technique come to life with affordable supplies! I'm also giving away some of the designs you see in the video in case you want to try the technique as well! Thank you so much to everyone who has been following my April 1 Million Views Event! We are halfway through and videos will resume Monday.

  13. I love this Justine, your card turned out to be gorgeous!!! I have foiled before but I find it hard to get pre made designs to do! I did buy the Minc but I never use it because I don't have the right kind of printer and there isn't anywhere to buy the Heidi ones anymore in Ontario so I just don't use it. I wish I'd known I could just use a laminator! I am going to defiantly check out Gina K's Web store for these, I love the pattern piece that you used. Thank you for the awesome video and all the information!!!

  20. I enjoyed your video. I have tried foiling with Gina's foil mate sheets. Here sheets are great, but my laminator was not great. I may have to try again with a different laminator.

  30. Isn't foiling fun?? Your cards are great! Enjoy - I love foiling - such impact

    ReplyDelete
  31. You can also foil over heat embossed images and sentiments... no toner needed! But, Deco Foil sells full sheets of toner paper that you can die cut and foil, so that gives you another option. Their sheets come in two styles, adhesive backed and plain. I find the plain to work slightly better but the adhesive back are convenient for intricate dies. Nuvo chisel tipped glue pens also work when applied to stamps and then stamped on paper and allowed to set to tacky before foiling. You can also use it through a stencil. It cleans easily if you wash it immediately. No need to spend a ton on laser printers or minc machines! So many options!!!

  32. What a great idea! Love Gina K paper products!

  33. This foil is gorgeous. Good to know about using a regular laminator. Thank you

  35. Your card is awesome. I have never tried foiling, but now I will probably try it. The expense was always my big concern.

  36. I've been waiting for these to be released! So excited!

    The only foiling I have tried before was a complete failure. I got one of the toner pens, but the pen dried out almost instantly. I have since read that happens to a lot of people and there is a way to make it work, but I don't remember where I saw that or how to do so. Ha!

  38. Ok, so you want to learn guitar shops in chennai how to play the guitar, or you want your kids to learn how to play. The problem is you don't own a guitar, so you will need to buy one. The following will tell you what to look for in a good quality guitar without breaking the bank.So how do you buy a guitar? Well there's a right way and a wrong way. The wrong way is to just buy the first guitar you see when you're inexperienced and don't know what to look for. Lets say you're buying a guitar for your 5 year old son because you want him to become a rock star; Right? Good luck with that!

    If you go and buy harmonica shop in chennai a 5 year old kid a full-sized guitar it would be the same as giving him a String Bass or an Upright Bass that stands about 6' high. In other words, he /she would need a chair in order to play it. Even a full-sized guitar would dwarf him, as he is still developing. A better choice would be a concert size or ½ size guitar these small guitars are specially made for kids in the 3-6 year old range. For the 6-10 year olds, a ¾ size guitar would be appropriate. Above 10 years of age, go with the full size guitar. These are just some guidelines. There are a lot of other factors to consider.

  42. Lotto Crusher System

    The next day he receives a reply from the company informing him that his application was successful and first cheque to be deposited is already on his way.Two days later he receives a cheque for $1500. He deposits the money into his bank account and waits for the cheque to clear. He keeps $150 for himself, withdraws $1350 and sends it to the headquarters of the company somewhere in Russia through Western Union Money Transfer, exactly like they told him to do. Victor can't wait for the next cheque to arrive. Another cheque arrives a week later, this time a whopping $20000. Victor follows the same routine earning him another $2000. A third cheque arrives for $2388.89. But Mr. Scammer has earned the trust of Victor by now and Victor does not wait for the funds to clear before withdrawing the 90% for the company.
