    Always enjoy your videos. I was given some chalk and did not know how to use it, so THANK YOU, You mentioned trimming your peg stamps so a halo doesn’t appear. I have this issue at times and need to know how to trim them. If you could let me know or if there is a video on it I sure would appreciate it, as I have ruined some of my projects because of the “halo effect”. Thanks Lindsey. You are so talented!

      Lindsay is awesome! I’m planning to do a video to show how to trim the stamps. I’ll try to explain it here though. If you’re right-handed you’ll hold the stamp in your left hand and you’ll be twirling the stamp in a circle. With a pair of fine tip scissors in your right hand, your going to angle them to cut off the edge of the rubber. So, as you twirl the stamp in your left hand, you’re going to trim the edge of the rubber in your right hand and your right hand is going to remain still. So you should have a circular piece of rubber when it’s all done. I hope that makes sense 🙂 – Rebecca Walton

    How do you prevent chalk from smudging or wiping off? [I gave up using chalks for stamping because they never adhere to the paper surface.]

      You’ll want to rub in the chalk well on your project and it should not smear. If it’s still smearing, you can use artist fixative (acid -free) or hair spray (not acid-free). – Rebecca Walton
