                            Embossing powder is fantastic for giving a stamped image a wonderful dimension that
                            is actually very easy to achieve. To start, you need to stamp an image with a pigment
                            ink pad (which dries slowly). Sprinkle powder over the image until it is fully covered
                            (have a scrap piece of paper under your work). Shake off the excess powder (leaving
                            only that sticking to the image) which can be saved and reused by tapping the edge of
                            the page on the table to remove stubborn crystals. Heat the image until the powder
                            melts. The best tool for melting the powder is a dedicated embossing heat gun (not a
                            hair dryer!) although a toaster can be used in a pinch. Embossing powder is available in
                            many different colours and textures—all giving wonderful results from metallic, to pearl,
                            to foil and glitter. Powders start from $6.65 and a quality embossing heat gun is $73.00.

Embossing Enamel
Ultra thick embossing enamel—otherwise known as UTEE has a different application and gives
a very different result to normal embossing powder. Also available in many different colours,
UTEE is best applied to cardboard, not paper. Ink a shape with pigment ink and cover with pow-
der. Melt as per usual with an embossing heat gun - it will take longer to melt than normal em-
bossing powder. 1 coat gives a bumpy effect, 2 coats smoother, 3 coats and more gives the
best effect. Keep melting and reapplying extra UTEE. Add other embossing powders and glitter
etc to the top layers for extra effect. While the top layer is still warm, press your stamp into it
(stamp can be inked if desired). Leave until UTEE is set. Remove stamp to admire design im-
print left behind.

                      You may not know that we open from 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday. This is espe-
                      cially for our busy working ladies who would otherwise not have enough time to drop
                      in on the way home from work. Here at Scrapbook Secrets we listen to your needs.
                      With the store closed on Saturday, Sunday is a leisurely day after the hustle and bus-
                      tle of the week, where you can drop in anytime from 12pm to 5pm and expect a re-
                      laxed pace, time to browse, and maybe bring your work and sit in our extremely well-
                      appointed workroom, spending a couple of hours working on your latest layouts. Why
                      not bring along your friends and make an afternoon of it away from housework, kids
                      and husbands!?

              Chook-a-look on MAGIC MATTERS
                            Magnificent, Marvellous, Mesmerising Magic Matters! These wonderful tools
                            make creating complex-looking mats around photos and embellishments a
                            breeze. Available in 3 sizes within the pack, the “Matters “offer a comprehen-
                            sive range of sizes from 1/8"-1/4"- 3/8"

                            Simply place your pencil in the centre slot and run the matter along the edge
                            of the object you are mating. The perfect mat will appear before your eyes and
                            all you have to do is cut it out. Keep going and make two or even three mats
                            with the “Matter” - easily making the same sized mats for all.

                            Great for freeform or unusually shaped mats that are difficult to achieve with
                            a normal trimmer. Try using to mat title letters.
