Press n Seal Projects...


So I posted a little video the other day on Facebook and Instagram.  I had no idea that so many people would watch it.  It's all about Press n Seal.  If you follow my blog, you've seen me use it several times in the past.  It's good stuff right?  And yes, Jennifer McGuires husband invented it.  LOVE that!  I had lots of questions and comments to go into a little more detail.  So I thought I would stop in and share again!

Here is the very CAS card I made, just using some strips of washi and the sentiment die from Simon Says...

Here is the video.  There is no sound.  This is just a quick video in high speed.  My intentions are to post one every friday.  If you have any certain video topics you'd like to see, just let me know.  Otherwise, I will just be sharing random card making ideas.



So with this technique, you can take your die cut, line it up on a grid or grid paper for an even sentiment.  Then you take the sticky side of the Press n Seal and pick up your sentiment.  I used Tombow Mono Liquid glue and put dots all of the back of the die cut.  Because the Press n Seal is clear, you can see where you are placing your sentiment on your card base.  You can center it and make sure your sentiment is straight, before pressing it down.  SO much easier than doing each die at a time, especially if you have lots to line up like this one that I shared last week for the PTI release...

Here is the finished project....

I've had several people email me asking where to get it...normally its just at any grocery store, Walmart, Target etc....but here is a link if you can't find it.....



Here is one more video from last year, just to see another way I used Press n Seal.



Hope this info helps!  Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Have a great day!

  1. Ok first of all, I NEVER use this product but I will now mainly because I didn't realize how well it worked. Second, I NEVER knew Jenn's husband invented it. Amazing. Third, I would have never guessed I could apply this product to a use in the craft room. Mind is totally blown this morning. So thanks for that. =)
