    I havent notice cards falling apart.

    BTW I have ENVIES going out Tuesday. check your mail box. I am so proud that I got them stamped and sealed, and oh that reminds me I should weigh them to make sure they dont need that extra ounce stamp, (which is so ugly, my PO wont order the bunnies until those patriot men in hats, are sold out.)
    MY APC WISHLIST NOT updated, tis a mess right now. I HAVE MOVED! contact me for new address.

    Nothing that other people glue down is falling off - that's why I think I'm the source of the problem. If players 1 and 2 managed to stick their additions down, then why am I struggling? Are you guys using some sort of crazy gorilla glue? Or are you sanding down just the area where you plan to stick something? Either way I need to stop receiving APCs. I'm doing something wrong, and feeling anxious about ruining people's sets. Otherwise, CRRs are a lot of fun. I have a super cute finished set drying now

    These pocket cards have removable penguins! (I can't take credit for those - the pockets and penguins were there when the cards landed in my hands)

    I'll make a note that you don't want APCs. I just use plain old glue sticks for most of what I do. Hmmm. Mysterious.

    And speaking of mysteries (I was in the last post) some mysterious, nice person sent me a padded envelope full of fun ephemera! Totally anonymous. Not even a post mark!! I'd sure like to say thank you, but I have no idea how to find out who it was. If you're reading this, thanks so much! I especially love the ATC that says "Be Groovy or Leave Man"!

    So, something which nearly never happens to me: I am totally caught up with working on all the sets I had in the house. Well, I was until I remembered I'd had an envelope earlier in the week - I put it aside as it should only have been homers, but when I opened it, there was a set to work on as well. Which is fine, as I'm going off homers anyway, but it does mean it didn't get worked on today!

    These three sets were finished:

    plumhill/lindagiese/me

    and lots of starters were added to for a second round. And there's some post going out tomorrow, hoorah!

    I'm going to go back off homers, but I will actually be away for a couple of weeks in February in the US to visit my mother (finally) so I may quickly get a backlog again, lol. I do hope to have time to make lots of starters so I can do a mass mailing when I'm in the US, though!

    I'm having a really hard time getting anything to stick to playing cards. I've tried liquid matte medium, gel matte medium, decoupage glue and glue stick. Maybe it's the extreme low humidity in the house? We're having a cold snap and the heat inside is cranked.
    I got this sanding sponge. Otherwise stuff just pops off a playing card.

    Any real smooth/shiny surface doesn't take glue very well. Forget any kind of white glue (tacky or otherwise).
    I will sand, as mentioned by others, if I'm putting a large piece of paper on it.

    I also have some leftover gesso which works very well - just a thin coat. When dry it gives a more rough surface that takes glue well.

    However, for ephemera, I'll use score tape (Sookwang) which does adhere well to a shiny surface.
