So we want to thank everyone who has stopped by our company blog so far. We can say that a lot of the MR family has read all the comments and as promised, we will try to continue to address questions we saw from the day before. There were also some questions emailed to us which we want to share here too!
1. Why was my comment marked as spam; why couldn't I leave a comment on a day's post?
- The "spam" was marked by the program (typepad) we use. We have gone back and allowed comments to be published that the program thought was spam but was not.
- For the comments, please remember, that each day we stop comments about the time we post the next peek as we mentioned here. So make sure you aren't trying to comment on a prior day's closed post!
2. Will your products be at my LSS?
- You will need to check with your LSS on this. If there is something of ours you want to see at your LSS, make sure you give them that feedback!
3. Concerning the Maya Mists, the reference to the "proper spraying technique" - this isn't going to be a product that requires a rocket science is it?
- No, there is no need for rocket science; the Maya Mists spray bottles are easy to use. Our Maya Mists will come in a bottle that has a spray pump on top. The label on the bottle says that you should spray from about 6" away from your surface. There is a reason for that. If you spray too close, you will tend to oversaturate your item. When you oversaturate and even though our chipboard is absorbent, if there is no where for the mist to go, it will start to trickle and "puddle" and you end up with the sample photo below - (these were done about 2" away from the chipboard, 3 sprays total)
- Now, if you spray from too far away (say 12") - you end up missing a lot of the target of your item (although after trying this out, the effect is cool) - but if you are looking for good coverage this isn't it (again 3 sprays, 12" away).
- Now, if you spray about 6" (again 3 times) this is what you will get.
And some other general tips related to the spraying techniques. Make sure you wipe the nozzle if you notice there is some mist on there b/c that will affect the spray. You won't be able to hold the mist bottle upside down to spray as the inlet for the liquid is at the bottom of the bottle. Also, if you have your item held straight up and down (meaning perpendicular to the ground), the chances of coverage being not good is higher since gravity is working against you and the droplets will start to pool and head downward. Also give the mist a bit of time to absorb and dry between sprays.
Ok, now it is time for our DT inspiration. Before we start, we wanted to recognize our Design Team for all their hard work in getting us all these beautiful samples together. Check them all out here and please make sure you thank them in your comments for all their inspiration.
Here we go! Check out this beautiful album featuring some of our leaves and petals chipboard (they will come on a chipboard sheet)
And what about this gorgeous stitched cupcake using our stamps as the pattern - pretty cool huh?
And what about this beautiful new scallop binder (yes, that is right a cool scallop binder)?
And check out one of our new bulk coasters.
And what about this beautiful house accordion album (hint this one has a matching acrylic album that goes with it!)
And check out our new cherry blossom bird on our sheer calendar album.
And since we have so many fabulous projects, we are going to post more DT inspiration tomorrow and yes 1 more chance to win some new MR goodies!
