Fluttering Into Spring | DO NOT DO THIS W/ Your Spellbinders BetterPress

Hi Friends,

Today I am coming to you humbly with a BIG REVEAL. I was recording this video for the BetterPress Club Of the Month for Spellbinders below when I made a big mistake and realized I had cracked my BetterPress Platen. I did not want to hide this from you though because I knew it was so important to be transparent and share what I had learned. It is VERY important to me to be completely honest with all of you and knew this was so imoprtant to show and share.

I know Spellbinders has said it is very important to NOT USE Glimmer Plates inside the BetterPress because they can crack the platen. I did not realize that using a sticky mat like this would do this. In my prep for this video I had done it two or three times in the trial runs of using the sticky mat without any issues so I wanted to share my findings with all of you. Luckily this happened on screen and this happened and I am able to educate all of you which I strive to do on a daily basis in my work as a influencer in educating all of you in my YouTube videos. So here I am sharing this with you. 

I decided in the video right after this video that we would go ahead and press a second piece of BetterPress paper and we would do today's technique on this second piece and do a comparison and you know what?? I think the second one turned out better. 😃 You will actually have to watch the video to see it because the card I completed is actually the one I pressed before doing the video. Now lets take a look at the finished card....

Here are some of my bonus cards from the video also...

Thank you for stopping by today my friends. If you would like to check out the Spellbinders Clubs, Just CLICK HERE!
