Talk Time Tuesday with Ask Jo~

Click here for FCC#4 "Anything Goes"

Hello my friends and welcome to another Talk Time Tuesday and Ask Jo segment!

Our first question today comes from April L. who asks, "What is one of the newest products out in the paper-crafting industry that has your eye?"

Hi April!
 Wow this is a great question! I have to admit there are so many wonderful and great new products that have caught my eye recently. Yikes! I wish I could name them all LOL but if I must pick at least just one, I would have to say that I have been intrigued by the new Life Style Crafts products. I must say that i'm totally in love with their Sticky thumb adhesive runner right now. My favorite adhesive runner has always been Tombow until now. The sticky thumb runner is 26 feet of clear, very tacky adhesive that seems to have the quality strength of scor-tape. It is acid free and very reasonable in price. The runner is selling for $2.99 with their refills also being $2.99 for a 2 pack! I guess I love this runner so much because of the strength in the tackiness of the adhesive as well as how easy this runner is to use and refill. This is definitely a product that everyone should have! Thank you for your question April and I hope to hear from you again soon!

Our next question comes from Brenda L. who asks, "Jo where do you get your cut files from for the Pazzle? Can any cut file be used?? Like an SVG file??"

Hello again Brenda!
  Gosh this is an excellent question because not a lot of people know much about the Pazzles Inspiration machine or its capabilities.I reviewed this machine last month which you can read more about here. The pazzles can cut files in WPC, AI, and SVG formats. Most of my cut files have come from the Pazzles Craft Room however; I've also purchased cut files from some of my favorite cutting file stores such as Kadoodle Bug Designs, Lori Whitlock's Shop, Kerri Bradford Studio, Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and Miss Kate Cuttables. Each one of these shops have some adorable and unique cutting file creations with very reasonable prices and lots of freebies. I have also created and designed a good portion of my own cut files using my design software. It was good to hear from you again Brenda and I look forward to hearing from you again real soon!

  1. Ohhh, what a perfect segment to have on your blog! All of us have questions no matter how seasoned we are in the crafty world. There's always so much to see here and seems like everytime I visit I find something new!

    I've nominated your blog for a little award: http://denamiaddict.blogspot.com/2013/06/stars-stripes-flags-plus-little-award.html


    1. Aww Tina thank you so much hun!!! I appreciate your kind words and the award!


  2. I do not have a question ..YET...LOL. But I did not know about "Life Style Crafts". I use a different adhesive but sometime I find my self using more tan usual because it is not strong enough. Also they are a little expensive. But the refills for 2.99 are a great price. I have to get a look at that. So tell me are you going to buy a Silhouette or continue to use Pazzles.
    Is there a different besides the files?...OMG! I think I just asked you a question...lol
