A word from the wise

I say a word from the wise! well that's very tongue in cheek, but I am however a lot wiser after the event.
Last weekend I got a card out of my stash to post for a birthday and was horrified to find that the double sided tape that I had stuck the insert in with had morphed into a very dark blotchy line along where I had stuck the insert, it was then that panic began to set in. I had just boxed up over 100 Christmas cards to take to the shop that I sell my cards through, I panicked as some of these cards were made during January & February so have sat around for a few months.
I had to then check each and every card and found the same thing had happened to about 80% of the Christmas cards. I have spent all week cutting the fronts off, re-mounting them and printing new inserts and finally today re-bagging the cards.

So the moral of the story is DON'T USE POUNDLAND DOUBLE SIDED TAPE IT'S NOT ACID & LIGNIN FREE.

Hence the reason why I haven't managed to enter any challenges this week, though I hope to return to the challenges next week in between packing to go away in two weeks.

I had this same problem! Us crafters are always on the look out for a bargin but it sometimes backfires on us! I have since invested in some DS tape from a craft show (12 rolls for £5) and have learnt my lesson :(

your cards are lovely

Oh Lisa, i've been here too!!! I noticed exactly the same the other day when I was sending a card to a friend. I have to go all the way through mine, but havn't been able to face that task just yet! As you so rightly say best to stick to more expensive acid free tAPES! hugs Linda x

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
