I ♥ Piddix: From the Archives

Where did February go?  All I know is we are ready for Spring weather! Happy March, tomorrow.
From the archives, updated.  

The title says it all.  I love, love Piddix on Etsy and using Corinna's collage sheets. She sells both modern and vintage digital prints. I was first introduced to Corinna in an Etsy virtual lab class when she was talking about quitting your day job to sell on Etsy, over four years ago. Since my original post, she has closed Etsy, had a baby, reopened Etsy (with conditions her customers can immediately download after purchasing) and produced a line of her 600 collage sheets that sell in stores (i.e. Target) and online stores (i.e. Stampington). Check out her store

So what is a sheet of Piddix prints doing in my freezer? I use an ink jet printer. When I coat the prints with Mod Podge or Triple Thick, the reds and oranges run and the process turns whites to yellow. By accident over the holidays I discovered a trick to set the ink and ... BAM, it really works!

I have made some dimensional paper buttons for rings with my 1" Valentine circles. 

Update: Currently, I use the digitals for magnet sets. These were made with glass marbles from Dollar Tree. They are not perfectly round and have a few air bubbles, but you can't beat the price versus the 1" jewelry glass pieces. I order the strong neodymium magnets on Etsy.

Thanks for dropping by! 

Have a great weekend :)
