So last night I was happily drawing out applique templates for my Green Tea and Sweet Beans project. I drew them all out and planned to laminate them then use Sarah Fielke's great method of making great circles. ( Check out Craftsy for her class on this).
Off I go to the laminator with my little templates lovingly prepared to coat in plastic. The green light pops on, I feed sheet number 1 through. It comes out the other side and my lovely templates are now coated in laminate ready to be cut out EXCEPT, wait a blooming minute there is nothing there. They have disapperared! Who stole my templates? How can this be?????????
A word of advice - DO NOT USE THIS PEN TO DRAW TEMPLATES IF YOU ARE THEN GOING TO RUN THEM THROUGH A HOT LAMINATOR - guess what happened??? You are correctomundo! (vanished! yep).
My solution was to put the sheet in the freezer like a maniac willing the lines to come back and they did ( it tells you on the back of the pack about how this works). So I managed to save them. Not the end of the world but a funny story of yet more of my dorkiness!
