    And, I hope your hand is healed soon enough that you can use it the way you want when you're ready to make your coins!
    Thanks! Okay, I wanted to try to stick to mailing them in a regular envie




    I got this punch (I think) for the coins. Not sure how thick of a paper it will punch, I still have to test it out

    Mel, this link played for me (i.e. the one above says it can't be viewed in Canada....pesky youtube)

    Usually the EK punches have no problem cutting heavy cardstock (80-90 lb pound). And maybe 140 lb watercolor. But I'm not sure about chipboard (cracker/cereal boxes). To get your coins the final thickness you want, you may have to back them with a 2nd circle of paper?

    I have 2 different sets of thin metal dies that I'll probably use. If your punch arrives and it won't cut the substrate you want to use, let us know. Maybe I can cut some rounds for you and send them your way?

    Great to hear that my envie made it. I was looking for the scan but I think I forgot to scan it - must have been the pre-holiday rush

    Oh Mel, there were so many lovely things and places to see... we had a boattrip to Hvar and Brac islands and visited the Plitvice lakes... you won't believe the amazing color of the Adriatic sea!

    Nicky, that part of the world is beautiful. I liked the Plitvice when I was there...but that was a long time ago


    Thanks Miss I! I do actually have the punch (i.e. the amazon link was for show ) and yeah I agree it wouldn't do chipboard. I can always stick two 140lb watercolor pieces together.

    I will not be participating either in August (I am away) or in September, as much as it pains me to miss out on weirdy mail. I really need some rest after the summer and my twins are starting school in September and a friend might be coming over from San Francisco with his kids also. So a full month for me. I will however be following and joining in the chatter if that is fine with everybody.
