Q&A: What to Use to Protect Your Craft Surface

What do you use to protect your work surface when crafting?  There are three different options that I recommend:

 

The craft sheet is great, especially when playing with watercoloring techniques.  Be careful, though,  when you get ink on the sheet. Be sure to clean it up so that it doesn’t get on parts of your project that you don’t want it to be on!  Ask me how I know! ;)

SU Grid Paper is fabulous, especially if you are concerned about lining up your layers and stamped images.  The grid comes in handy for that.  The Grid Paper is not so great if you need a palette for ink and water.

Copy paper is cheap and readily available!

I hope this was helpful as I get LOTS of questions about what the brown thing is that I stamp on!  Leave a comment here and tell me what YOU use to protect your craft table!

Before I go, I wanted to share a bit of eye candy with you and a peek at this super fun game we’ve been playing at StampNation!

  tag you're it!

Last week, Dream Team Member Allison Cope hosted round two of the Card Tag Game.

What is the Card Tag Game, you ask?

It’s kind of like the “telephone game” – Ally picks an inspiration card and sends it to the first player.  She has 48 hours to make a card based on the inspiration.

When player 1 is finished, that card is sent to player 2…and so on.  At the end, it’s fun to line the cards up to see how they progressed!

We had three teams going, though the StampNation Sistahs did not know that there was a third team!  ;)

Some of StampNation’s Dream Team members were working behind the scenes on their own Card Tag Game.  The results, including a video of my process went up on StampNation today.
