FYI... I'm sure you are all familiar with the fact that tags cost about $5 for a pack of 20, which can get very expensive when your learning new techniques! Lets face it, this is new to all of us and god only knows how many of these I have thrown into the crap pile, lol. So I went to Staples and bought 250 sheet of Manila/Ivory card stock for $15, if you cut them up into 4's you will get 1000 sheets to practice on or make 3 of the #8 tags which will give you 750 tags.

I personally prefer to buy the pack of 20 tags for better quality projects only because they are slightly (and I do mean slightly) thicker than the cardstock, but to practice on, how can you go wrong. Best 15 bucks I have ever spent, lol!!!

So to sum it up:

Store bought tags for $15 gives you 60 tags
or
250 sheet cardstock for $15 gives you 750 tags or 1000 practice sheets.

Just think on how much you'll save... happy shopping, lol!BigGrin

HI Maria, my partner! lol I haven't even taken the time to say hi to you here on the thread since assigning partners! I've just been too preoccupied with son and his broken ankle, surgery, etc. this entire week.

Anyway, as to the tags....I thought same thing when I was buying a package on sale.....that these are great to have but I could just as easily make my own out of good quality CS I have. Like you say, we'll probably be doing a little bit of practicing first!

Well, the surgeon was very pleased with the procedure but he did have to put in lots of extra hardware, pins, screw, etc. So a very long recovery ahead of him. He'll be bored stiff, for sure.

The nerve block has not wore off yet....so he's in no pain today. Not looking forward to when that wears off and the pain hits him probably tonight sometime! Ugh!

Hi Denise Looking forward to this swap. I love the TIM as we call him out here. Just finished watching CC101 and looking forward to CC102. I have done some of his techniques and it will be fun to work on some new ones. I just purchased some of his new dies. I especially love the Christmas ones Snowman, Tree
I checked out his Halloween tag for the month and never used Glossy Accents to adhere glitter
Will have to try it.
Anyway this should be a fun swap.

I am taking his CC 102 class, starting Monday. So I am looking forward to learning new techniques. especially for this swap. Do you have any particular thing that you do not like about his style, or anything you want more of?

It's meeeee, lol!
Yeah, I actually found out through COB, she had congatulated me on fb, I thought she was confused, lol. I went right to the blog and there it was my name and comment... wooohooo!BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin Super excited, got to exchange several email messages with Mario, who was kind as can be. I also mentioned how we were doing a swap on here, he thought it was awesome.

Anyway, I enjoyed class today, I ldid get many ideas from it.

Speaking of,
Gwen just curious if you have any specific requests or thoughts on what projects you'd like for me to make? I did read your MQ, which was pretty informative, but I was just curious if you have your heart set on something. I have several projects I'm working on for the holidays, but I plan on throwing some of your projects in the mix.Smile

No, I don't think I have any specific requests. I think anything that is TH inspired is fun to hold or look at and enjoy! Makes us feel like pros when we have his style in front of us! lol

And congrats on winning the free tuition! I think it is just so cool to actually know someone who wins a prize on his blog! There has to be 100s and 100s of gals commenting....can you imagine?

Yep, talk about luck, lol!
Just got done watching todays class, loved it, it is really worth taking these classes, you really do learn so much. Granted, doing it myself is gonna take much practice, but like you said Gwen, we could feel like pros to even get a couple of his techniques down, lol.

Looking forward to tomorrow's class, but I will be playing with some techniques today, even some that Kelley had shown me the orher night which were pretty cool. I have alot going on this time of year as far as projects, so I decided to incorporate timmy into most of them, practice, practice, practice, lol.Smile

If you do the technique with the script stamp and archival ink with the stencil from today's videos. The archival ink doesn't wipe of the ink of the stencil. My heart skipped a beat for a moment. I keep 91% Isoproply Alcohol on my desk for hard to clean messes and it removed it so the stencil looked new again.

Kelley....must be you are not watching each and every video in order! Are you skipping around? The teacher may snap your hand with a ruler!

I'm teasing you cuz one of his videos this week discussed having the alcohol wipes on hand. lol

So I need to go buy these wipes....didn't think about it last night while at Wm! Darn!

Here's another question for you:

Does anyone here have the same heat tool he uses? The more I hear him discuss how much he likes it...the more I think I need to buy one. Not even sure if I can buy it at local craft store with coupon or need to order online?

Anyone know?

I didn't watch that video - lol until after. I had only the opportunity to catch one video at the time. I finally got caught up yesterday and saw that one. He just shows removing paint, stains etc though which I already use the isopropyl from bottle with. My heart skipped with the archival ink though as that is more permanent. I actually just buy the bottle of it at the dollar store - huge bottle (the wipes tend to dry out). Then just wet a corner of a paper towel and wipe. get more bang for the buck LOL

I have had the same heat tool for ever - probably 15 years. Yikes but that sucker blasts the hot air. It is great for most jobs, but others not so much. I did break down and get the heat gun because you can use the coupon code with SimonSays if you are taking the chem class. I love it. It just takes a little getting used to from my other one.

they are not bad. $25.91 at simon says and if you buy this week with the coupon code from chem 102 you can get 10% off - free shipping at $75. It is $26.99 at blue moon - free shipping at $50. If they have at your local M's (mine didn't have them) you can use a 40% off. At scrapbookingwarehouse.com it is 16.88 not sure on their shipping and have never ordered from them before.

well everybody and their brother taking the 102 class must have made same decision as me to buy a heat tool cuz all three online stores that offer the discount thru his class are sold out! lol

And I don't understand why some places are $16 for same thing. That makes me nervous too.

SO guess I will hold off and see if they get restocked in a week and then go from there.

I can live without one for right now anyway.

I just like the fact that it doesn't blow the stuff all over your table!

It was a little different when I first used it. My regular heat gun is like an old dodge charger muscle car. Lots of power and I never realized how loud it really was until I got the heat it tool. The heat it tool is like a prius. Quiet but effective. I will still use my regular gun for embossing powders though after watching his videos.

Gwen and Kelley, are you both referring to the same heat tool?

Gwen I thought you were talking about the Weller heat gun he had shown on his first video for day 5, if you are, I haven't seen that gun sold anywhere for under $100.
As far as the ranger heat gun, that was my first and only heat gun I have ever used and I love it, but then again I have never had another gun to compare it to. I don't like the shape of other heat guns, they look like they would be uncomfortable to use. Michaels does sell the Ranger heat gun, that is where I bought mine, it's not too expensive especially when you use a 40% off.

If anyone does find the Weller heat tool for a better price, please do tell, because as much as I thought it was awsesome, I'm not that impatient for the embossing to melt that I would pay over $100 for it.

thanks for letting me know that that ranger heat gun is sold at local craft stores. I will be on the lookout in my own stores now. I just can't ever recall seeing it hanging on display with all his other products. lol

I totally missed the $100 heat gun you talk about. I have no interest in that!

I like my current heat gun but I just like the sounds of the ranger one too after he discussed it.
The fact that it does not blow the air so forceably.
