Hi! I just tried foiling for the first time the other day. I have a Scotch laminator that I've had for several years and don't want to invest in another if I don't have to. I only tried a couple of…Continue

I thought we could share our foiling when we try something new.Continue
Glad you gave this a try, Diana. The pen Gina is carrying is available at Hobby Lobby and with the 40% off coupon, it is pretty inexpensive. I will pick it up sometime. I watched a video where a lady ran an intricate die cut through a piece of toner paper she created on her printer. It was a block of toner. I would go through too much toner for this. I have toner sheets in my Amazon cart to purchase sometime. I need to try the items I have already purchased before getting more. I have foam from Thermoweb that is supposed to work great for foiling. I laid a few dies out, but haven't gotten to them yet. The video I watched showed running the dies through a die cutting machine, then removing one side of the sticky and laying the foil on top of the sticky, with the grey side touching the sticky part, then rubbing your hand all over the foil to transfer it to the images. I will give it a try and let you know the results.
Hi everybody! So glad to see this group!
I also have the Heidi Swapp Mini Minc Machine, and I love it. Haven't had any problems with it missing spots yet. You do have to remember to keep the shiny side of the gold paper up facing you when you put it through. That helps tremendously.
I haven't tried using the glue or pen or anything. I'll wait until I see some more videos on that.
Just got my laminator and am excited to start foiling after seeing Gina's beautiful card. Any tips I need to know or help I would appreciate it. Got the Mini Minc
Awesome! So glad you got this group rolling. I tried to foil earlier. This time I took the advice and had my bright side away from the paper I wanted the foil to transfer to. But when I pulled the paper from the foil, there were spots. I guess maybe lint or something got on my foil or the paper. I cut the paper yesterday, put it back in the plastic kit cover, but I guess lint could have gotten on the paper. Has anyone else had this issue?
