suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

Re-sticking a cricut cutting mat

Cricut Mat - re-sticking   Wednesday, 18 August 2010
I've had a great couple of days, I bought 2 new cricut mats, then decided to try to restick my old one,(bought the new ones just in case I messed up)   I already have some sticky stuff remover, I sprayed that on..... all the yukky stuff came right off, I re-did it a couple of times and it was sparkly clean.  washed off the residue..
then... I sprayed it with 3M repositionalble spray adhesive.  (It's what I already had) Left it to dry overnight.... yes...still sticky in the morning...VERY
I patted it  (conditioned it, as is the right term)  a lot, almost got my hand stuck.... I had visions of me walking to the surgery with a mat stuck to my hand!!!  so I kept patting it. it got better.
Tried it out. perfect!!!!! thin paper got a bit stuck, but after a while I just sort of patted it gently on the mat rather than smooth it out.  but it's awesome now!!
So.... I have2 new mats - unused.  and am so proud of myself for havng made a sucess of it
