Joe’s mom started the family on crafting. As early as he can remember, his mom was crocheting. When she brought home a Brother knitting machine, he was fascinated and soon he was creating designs from Christening dresses to ski wear. He dabbled in macramé, string art and latch hooked rugs when they were hot in the 70’s. Now, in his mid-forties, Joe’s turned his eye to paper crafting. He loves detail and 3D work. His specialty is upcycling.

Joe’s work has appeared in Scrap & Stamp Arts, Just Steampunk! and Somerset Studio Gallery magazines.

  2. OMG Joe, these cupcakes sound amazing! I'm here from Creative Jumpstart, looking for where to leave the comment to hopefully win some of those wonderful 2-sided adhesive sheets…still not sure where to post a comment for a chance to win, but I'm so glad I found your blog. So many awesome ideas. Thanks! BTW, I loved your corset T! Congrats on being the on being the only man to "woman up"!

    thanks for the creative jumpstart video!

    with double side adhesives i would use my cuttlebug! what a great idea!! thanks a lot!

  4. Mrsdocko said:

    Just came over from creative jump start and had a look at some of your creativity. You have some fab ideas and it's great to get the male perspective on it from time to time. THanks for the Cut Bond Create giveaway, I love using it for making my own scrapbook embellishments with die-cuts and adding strips of border punched glitter on my cards. I use a product called JAC paper here in Australia which I'm guessing is the same stuff.

  5. Bea Arreola said:

    I really liked the double sided adhesive! I want to use a cutting machine to make my own stencils! That was so cool!! I could see me to doing that…and embellishing EVERYTHING!!

  6. Andrene said:

    Loved your techniques on JumpStart!! I have used the double sided adhesive for glitter and flocking but havent tried mica or guilding…definitely going to give it a try.

  7. NancyR said:

    Thanks for a great tutorial on Creative Jump Start. I have a lot of stencils to try out your technique, but I'm really looking forward to trying it with the lace.

  8. Sandy Kerr said:

    Loved your Jump Start video, Joe. You are very talented and have given me some great ideas to try new techniques with double sided tape. Thanks a bunch.

  9. Debbie J said:

    I loved watching your video on CJS. I'll have to give the guilding technique a try. I've never used this brand of adhesive before, but it looks great!

  10. Melinda said:

    Your JumpStart videos using double sided adhesive are spectacular. I'm thrilled to have been introduced to your blog. I want to rush home right now and try the resist technique with my glitter!

  11. Lisamariemlt said:

    Wow amazing examples showed by you!!!

    Loved the lace, and I'm thinking that would be the way I would love to use the prize you are giving away. How generous!!!

    Thanks for sharing your talent, keeping my fingers crossed I might win.

  12. Cherie Goggin said:

    I really enjoyed your video on Creative JumpStart. I am excited to use this double sided adhesive sheet on candles and glassware. I have done the stamping and tissue techniques for candles before but this will be so much easier! Plus I can use my die cuts to make an even more elegant design! Thanks for sharing, I loved it!

  13. Kathy P said:

    Thanks, Joe, for the great video….can't wait to try out your techniques! I have lots of stencils and glitter….just have to get some double sided adhesive! Thanks, too, for a great giveaway!

  14. Keitha said:

    Great ideas Joe, thanks! I'm definitely going to pull out the gilding flakes after watching your video; in fact, that's how I'd use some double-sided adhesive sheets if I won.

  15. Michelle Hodges said:

    Thank you for the amazing tutorials on Jump Start!!

    Love all of your amazing projects!!!

  16. Carole said:

    Loved your Creative JumpStart video Joe. Wonderful techniques and that double-sided adhesive sheet looks amazing, in particular I like the grids as well as being able to remove pieces as you work. Thanks Joe.

  17. Cathy Peper said:

    I "liked" you on Facebook. My favorite thing to do with double sided adhesive sheets is the glitter lace technique that you shared an example of. Using it with dies is an interesting idea.

  18. Maurene said:

    I loved your video on JumpStart. I haven't used the double sided adhesive like this before and you have given me some great ideas for my projects. Your work is beautiful.


  19. Nadège said:

    Love this video, never used any of these products. It's beautiful and looks so fun and easy when you do it. Thanks for sharing your ideas, makes me wanna try ;-)

  20. Kay Wallace said:

    Thanks, Joe! Love your Creative JumpStart 2013 video! Such creative projects–each with clear instruction! A win-win for me!

  21. LynneJ said:

    Thanks for offering this giveaway, and your video was great! I'd love to try using the double-sided adhesive with lace and stencils for my heritage album…love that you don't have to worry about the stencils shifting while adding the colours!

  22. Cyndi said:

    I would very much like to make a handmade card for my friend in Australia. She gave me a package of gilding years ago and I have been concerned about it being fussy. Now all I need is a package of the double-sided adhesive! Thank you for sharing your techniques.

  23. Wanda said:

    Hi, what a great techniques! I have never used this double sided adhesive, but you do absolutely amazing things! I will certainly try this also!

    And thanks for this great giveaway, i really hope to win!

    Greetings Wanda, and compliments on your bravery for being the only man in this world full of women!!

  24. Wanda said:

    Unfortunately i have no facebook, seems to be the only one left in the world with no facebook, but i 'liked' your blog.

  25. Kathren Darmody said:

    Joe, I love the lace technique and will definitely try this. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Dianne King said:

    Loved your inspirational video, Joe. I'd love to win some of the adhesive sheets and give your techniques a try. Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. Joe, I would love to win some of this adhesive. I really like the gold gilding technique. That is a must try!! Thanks for sharing your techniques!!

  28. Wendy said:

    Great ideas with the adhesive……. I'm excited to try them.

  29. Colleen Halpern said:

    I loved the gilding technique the most. I have some little craft boxes that I can incorporate that technique into. I just need to get the gilding. LOL

  30. Carmen said:

    thanks a lot for your video, I did not know such sheets but I would like to try them in an enamel work I am doing.

  31. I've used the lace technique before and love it. Thanks for the other ideas. Another technique is punching the adhesive (maybe dots) and applying the glitter or gold leaf or emb. powder on them for a polka dot background.

  32. Heather Jones-Pryor said:

    Hi Joe,

    I really liked your uses of the adhesive sheets. I would love to better understand how you made the night light.


  33. LaNell said:

    I would love to try the stencil technique and the gilding technique. Beautiful work. Thanks for the giveaway and sharing your talents.

  34. joanne3107 said:

    i will use them with my cittlebug dies!

    thanks for this givaway!

  35. Esther said:

    I have a Silhouette Cameo and the possibilities are simply endless!

  36. Jane S said:

    I just watched your 3 amazing techniques on Jumpstart. I can see me using the first technique and I think I have everything already to get started. Thanks so much

  37. Cyndi Paola said:

    What a great video Joe!

    Inspiring! I have not used that adhesive (yet),

    but I'm thinking of using it with a wood veneer for an awesome project!

  38. Miranda said:

    Hi Joe, thanks for the video with the fun techniques, haven't used doublesided adhesive paper before, especially love the gilding, will surely try that one

  39. I just loved your techniques! I also loved your other artwork as well! Thanks for sharing!

  40. Steffie said:

    Thank you for the jumpstart video!

    I think, I would use the double sided adhesive sheets with my cameo to make some glittering titels on my layouts.

  41. Myoriah said:

    Just liked you on facebook and can't wait to see what you do. Will be adding this blog to my reader.

    Hate to admit it but over a year ago I found out that there was such a thing as double sided adhesive sheets which would cut in my machine. However, I have not bought any yet. :-( Now I want to get some so I can play with the techniques that you shared. I especially liked how you did the Koi fish and would like to do something similar.

    Thanks for sharing and thanks for the chance to win.

  42. Amy Malla said:

    I decorate cigar boxes and this technique would be wonderful to add creative elements to the boxes

  43. Kathryn said:

    Thanks for taking part in Creative Jump Start, it's how I found you! I'd use the double-sided adhesive to do some gilding. I like your idea of doing it on one of those inexpensive glass cube vases.

  44. Heather said:

    Hello, just loved the whole thing, the lace was beautiful and you made me want to run out and shop so I can try it. thank you enjoyed it veru much.

  45. Marie-Anne Raeman said:

    love these techniques especialy the gilding

  46. shawn said:

    Wow, I loved all 3 of the techniques you showed today. If I win I think I might try the lace one or the gilding one, oh I just don't know liked them all!!!

  47. Heidi Muska said:

    Wow! Love this double sided adhesive! I would like to try it on a transparency and put it on some cards. What a great video! Been your fan on facebook for a while now. :)

  48. Lisa M said:

    I just watched your Jumpstart video and have to say it is one of my favorites of all the videos! Love all the techniques you showed and I am very inspired! Would love to win the adhesive sheets and would try using some flocking that I have as well as some craft foil that has been in my stash forever!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  49. Deborah said:

    Would love to try the guilding technique and the resisting technique. Your work is amazing Joe.

  50. Dara Lynn said:

    Would enjoy using with TH Sizzix Word Play to create some fun alphas for my journal:)

  51. Anna said:

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for sharing your techniques on creative Jumpstart.

    I've never seen or heard of this product before!

    Ah, us Aussies are always last to be shown new craft items:-)



  52. chantal said:

    The double sided adhesive sheets are something new for me but it looks like a fun technique I would love to try out in my mini-albums.

    Thanks for the great ideas.

  53. Judy said:

    Thanks for the super ideas! I would like to try this in my fibre art and in my art journalling. Thanks for the chance to win!

  54. Jan said:

    I am going to use the resist technique with tiny beads. Loved the video and liked you on facebook, can't wait to see more of your projects.

  55. I would try it with glitter, I don't use glitter very often because I find it such a mess with the glue and then the glitter and the drying. Well I could use my glitter stash without all that mess. It would be so cool for making cards.

  56. Mindy Chemacki said:

    Loved the techniques presented! I this it would be fun to use to make flocked die cuts/lace for Valentine's Day. :)

  57. Kathleen said:

    I'm amazed at wh you made and showed! I would try all 3 of those techniques!!


  58. Judi Howard said:

    Wow I finally found yoou!!… I was very impressed with your you tube demonstration on jump start today. Very professional and clearly presented.

    The double sided adhesive sheets have my brain jumping!

    Love from Australia

  59. Laura said:

    I haven't ever used double sided adhesive like you did but I loved all your examples. I think I would like to try the lace, it was so pretty.,

  60. Rosana said:

    Wow… I did not know that product. Love it! And your techniques are awesome! If I had some of these I would create a stained glass picture! I've liked you on FB!

  61. angela Campbell said:

    I can imagine many uses for this – I have never used this product, but is certainly enticing!

  62. Melanie said:

    Hi Joe, so nice to discover the double sided adhesive. I haven't seen them in the Netherlands. You asked what we would do with it, well I will make my mixed media art more special and my journaling will get more texture… I think I can do a lot with it… I hope I can find it in a dutch store…

    Thanks for sharing this on jump start with us.

    Liefs, Melanie

  63. Heidi O! said:

    Watched the CJS video. I love the idea that the double stick sheet has a grid – what I great idea. Your projects are awesome! Thank you!

  64. frutselke said:

    Your video was great. I've loved double sided adhesive sheets for ages. In fact, I have it on a roll from Aslan. It's so versatile. I often just use it instead of tape. Also it's really great for paper piecing. But I use it especially when I am cutting really thin material, like the paper some magazins are made from. I first stick the picture that I want to cut out to some double sided adhesive sheet. Then cut it the way I want. And then remove the waxpaper on the backside. It stops the paper and other really thin materials from tearing.

  65. Diane W said:

    Love this double sided adhesive – especially with the grid markings How smart is that! I must get out all my stencils that have been sitting idly on a shelf and give this technique a try. Great idea to do for candles too…may start my Christmas gifts early. Thanks for the inspiration and the opportunity to win some of the adhesive sheets.

  66. Angie B said:

    I have never used double sided adhesive paper before, but your techniques are fascinating and I would love to try them out! Thanks for the video!

  67. karen charley walker said:

    I have never used this before but as soon as I saw it I immediately thought of the carousel i want to make.

  68. Loved your video. The techniques are beautiful. I love using double sided adhesive to adhere metal (i.e. Ten Second Studios or Spellbinder's metal). It seems to be the only thing that really locks that particular material down nice and tight. Thanks for the chance to win!

  69. Amberlee Batchelor said:

    I loved the candle idea you gave us with the double sided sheets and gold leaf. i thought this would look nice on glass jars too. I wonder if this would work on wood? I would love to add some gold leaf embellishments to some wood items I have. :)

  70. Gayle Churches said:

    I really enjoyed this video, so easy to follow that I believe I can do these projects with the double sided adhesive. What a great idea to have a grid printed! I can see this product put to use in my card making, scrapbooking, and even decorative boxes with the mica.

  71. Barb Leffeler said:

    I want to try doing something with glitter. Maybe it won't be as messy as glue.

  72. Suzanne said:

    Thanks for the ideas in the Creative JumpStart video! I bet the one I would try first is the resist technique! Here's to hoping I win some and can try! :)

  73. Me-Bear said:

    Thanks for the nice vid! With the very first episode of CJS2013 (Nat's vid with double sided tape), I already thought of taking her idea to double sided adhesive. It was all a bit blurry until your vid. So it is possible to do this with your cutting machine. Thanks to you I know this on forehand :) I'm not much of a glitter lover, but I have these velvet powders (are they called flock?) and I imagine that would look great. I also like the idea with the gold sheets. The least messy (if at all) way to use the gold I've ever seen. And you could make your own Sandy Art images.

    xx Monica

  74. Haviva Avni said:

    Terrific techniques! Thank you.
    I want to try it in my art work!

  75. Chris said:

    Just loving seeing all these new (at least new to me) products. I can see tons of card fronts decorated with these from elegant wedding and sympathy cards to joyous birthday cards. Thank you

  76. Lisa T. said:

    I have used double sided adhesive sheets before, but these ideas are fabulous! I especially loved the lace as a stencil!

  77. Joy Hager said:

    Thanks for the awesome video! I like to use double sided adhesive to cover images then pour tiny clear glass marbles over it, thanks for the chance to win!

  78. Great video, Joe! I've used double sided tape in lots of widths to do this technique but I really like the koi on the full sheet and your ideas for "kissing" technique. hadn't seen that before but will be sure to try it. Thanks for the chance at a prize!

  79. Laura S said:

    Wow, Joe, love your 3 techniques and I cant wait to get my hands on some double sided adhesive sheets. Thank you for sharing your ideas and for the giveaway. CJS 2013 has been awesome!!

  80. Lisa said:

    I would love to try a project like the koi. Love it. Thanks for a chance to win.

  81. APG Jamie said:

    Wow that sure looks like cool stuff! I imagine experimenting with various things that are dancing in my head right now.

    Super cool.

  82. Ann Jobes said:

    I enjoyed your video and ideas for dbl sided adhesive -I used it for applying flocking, and for using peel-offs and glitter. I love your tip for peeling off the paper with the piercer!

  83. Patricia said:

    Your steampunk clock is absolutely awesome!
    I have done something similar with Jewel Ritz glitter. Stamping an image on card, then putting double sided adhesive over top and then a traslucent overall glitter on the top adhesive.

    Or attaching a napkin to card and doing the same thing.

  84. Pat Lawson said:

    Loved the video! I have some of the adhesive but never really knew what to do with it. Going to make some stenciled cards now! Thanks!

  85. Rhonda Z said:

    I just met you on CJS, today. I loved your video. I do not do FB but I''ll sign up on the blog. I really

    love the guilding.

  86. Patty said:

    The double sided adhesive has so many uses. I like the use with metal stencils and may have to have the Zing cutting machine.

  87. Jamsa said:

    My goodness, what a great product! I love the idea of guilding several flourishes with different colors of guilding (which I already have, so no need to buy more "stuff" LOL) and using them on cards. Can't wait to try! I might even try it with one-sided adhesive and glue the other side. Thanks for the idea!

  88. Lyneen said:

    You are a great jumper!!!! Love the techniques! Thanks for sharing!!!!

  89. Diane Oster said:

    Joe, I loved your video today, gave me lots of ideas on using double sided adhesive. I would love to win some from USArtQuest and use it with stencils and glitter. I have been wanting to try that technique since I first saw it with your tree frog box.

  90. Gini Cooper said:

    I haven't heard of this adhesive. My first thought would be to use it to apply tissue paper using die cuts. But would like to try it with pearl-ex powders, as I don't use them often enough.

  91. Pamela said:

    I can imagine using it with glitter projects

  92. Tracy Strahle said:

    I would love to try the double sided adhesive with glitter and mica powders. Thanks for the video your techniques were awesome.

  93. Rebecca White said:

    Your video was fabulous. I love the kiss cutting technique- it came out so beautifully. I will have to try that soon.

  94. Tonya Davidson said:

    LOVED your CJS videos and ideas!! Definitely will look at double sided tape a little differently now! Thanks Joe!! :)

  95. Toni said:

    You explanation along with the video was so clear that I would actually be able to do the techniques. I definitely would like to try the first two for sure! Thanks so much for sharing!

  96. Alice hildebrandt said:

    working on a scrapbook for a friend. the stained glass look would be perfect to mimic the stained glass from the sand church, perhaps find a away to copy a mosaic from Tunisia too. these would be great for tabs on each port we stopped at. thanks …love the steam punk mixed media 2btw .

  97. Luba said:

    Thanks for the video! I am anxious to try some stencils with the cut-bond-create, and am intrigued by your die-cutting technique as well.

  98. bridget said:

    Wow, I haven't used glue sheets in a long time. Really like the graph marked on it. I want to make simple design and frame then for my grandson room. Thank you

  99. Christine Szekeres said:

    I enjoyed your Creative JumpStart tutorial! My favorite was the candle. I've done lots of candles (using tissue paper and a heat tool) but what you shared creates a wonderful effect with no dimpling or melting! I liked your FB and have saved your blog to my favorites! Thanks again for a great jumpstart!

  100. Barbara Tobey said:

    Time to get back to adding holeless glass beads to my cards and other creations. This adhesive would be perfect.

  101. ruby t said:

    Hi Joe!
    I liked the technique that you did with the double sided adhesive and gilding foil…the stencil one with the mica powders was a great effect-toned down from the regular glitter.
    I would try my hand a gilding a few things-boxes, paintings, cards.
    Is this adhesive heat tolerant? I saw that you used the heat gun on it but can it take a bit more?

  102. Teresa beg said:

    I will use the dsa paper to add extra embellishing to my projects.

  103. Faith said:

    Great to 'meet' you on jumpstart! Wow, have not seen the double sided adhesive before; Love the 3 tips, especially the gilded candle!
    Thanks for the chance to win some!

  104. Wonderful video and I have of course subscribed to your newsletter.

    I imagine that I would use double adhesive paper for creating som frames to my photos on my LO and Canvas, using different material like glitter, flock, fabric and so on…

  105. Katie said:

    I love anything with glitter. I'm going to get some of those sheets and start experimenting. Thank you for the great ideas!!

  106. Marianne said:

    Now I will start using this dbl side adeshive sheet!
    And I must say that Frog was amazing!!

  107. Lesley Walker said:

    Joe, thank you so much for your demonstration, really got the creative thoughts moving. I can imagine using it with stencils cut from my Cricut machine and embossing or using mica flakes or powder.

  108. W Harle said:

    Enjoyed your CJS video. Thank you for helping me discover another must have for my craft room. Can't wait to play with double sided adhesive sheets.

  109. Debby L said:

    Amazing. I hope to be a regular reader,of your blog. You are talented and a great teacher. I loved the technique with the fish so I think I would love to try some art work for my grands bedroom to frame using this technique and adhesive. Thank

  110. Cindy said:

    I love using these sheets in my craft Robo. But have so many more uses spinning around in my head now! Thanks!

  111. Kara said:

    I had never seen double sided adhesive. I'd love to try out the gold leaf or make over my flour, sugar, etc. containers in the kitchen adding some sparkle to them.

  112. Karen Phanco said:

    I loved your demos! I would love to play with a double sided adhesive sheet. What fun!

  113. Roxane Apple said:

    Really cool product with endless possibilities. I can't wait to try it with my Cricut.

  114. Carol Dee said:

    I've been bit by the Gelli Plate and think the double sided sheets would be a great addition to using all the gorgeous papers created.

  115. Tammy said:

    I can think of so many things to use the Cut Bond Create on. The “Kiss” technique would be pretty on a window to look like stained glass. The adhesive would also look nice on old bottles to dress them up and turn them in to vases. You could also put designs on your wall or mirror. Looks like a fun product to work with

    Thanks for all of your inspiration!

  116. Cindi Estes said:

    Oh my Gosh! I have passed over this product so many times…never again! My mind is teeming with ways to use your stain glass method with my Tim Holtz dies!

  117. Lorena said:

    Thanks for the inspiration! I have seen the double sided adhesive sheets at my LSS but never knew what to do with them, maybe I will be picking some up on the weekend now! I will also be bringing out my metal leafing and using that again, been far too long since it's been used. Thank you for the inspiration and chance to win!


  118. Barb Adams said:

    I got to Nathalie's Creative Jumpstart through your FB page and am so glad I did. I've learned a lot — like how to dress up the candles my DH makes with gold leafing. Thanks!!

  119. Barbara Albrecht said:

    I've used double sided adhesive sheets in the past to make "tin type" looking photos. I enjoyed your video…opened up new ideas for using the adhesive sheets…especially the candle…beautiful!

  120. Judith Noble said:

    Wonderful! I can see using this adhesive with pieces of photos in my collages.

  121. Elizabeth K said:

    Thank you for so generously sharing your time and expertise in the CJS video. You explain the techniques so well and I especially like all the extra tips that you give. I can see myself using all the techniques but most especially the resist technique. It's a new way to use my small collection of brass stencils, as well as my masks. But…wait…using the die cut sheet to add a gold leaf flourish to a mixed media canvas…oh yes!!!

  122. Anne said:

    I enjoyed the demo on using double sided adhesive sheets. I'd love to try the resist technique.

  123. Phoebe said:

    Thank you for sharing your cool ideas with us for the Creative Jump Start. really cool.

    Your chip board books look great…. I especially like the Leaf one.

    I can imagine myself creating some cool greeting cards, making great embellishments for art journal pages and I'm sure I'd have fun coming up with other ideas for using those neat double stick sheets. Thank you for my chance to win a package of them. ;)

  124. Tina said:

    Thanks, Joe, for your amazing demonstration on Creative JumpStart Summit. I liked all your techniques, but especially that beautiful koi! That's quite high-tech for me, but so amazing! As for me, I would like to use double-stick sheets for interesting card-making joys! :D

    Thanks again for this opportunity to win a package!

  125. Marie Butler said:

    I enjoyed your Jumpstart segment. You have some great ideas that I would like to use in card making.

  126. Deanna C said:

    I imagine using it to trap some copper flakes I have onto a glass surface, leaving some uncovered so that you could still see what was behind the glass.

  127. Rob K said:

    I'm so glad that you're a jumper too Joe. Thanks for some great techniques, I've liked you FB page and look forward to seeing what else you get up to.

  128. Kathy T said:

    What an awesome Jumpstart video. I just got a Silhouette electronic cutter so it would be great to try the kiss-cut technique using the adhesive to make some awesome artist trading cards fro my club.

  129. Diana L said:

    Love the gold leafing technique on the candle bar far!! I have tried the other two techniques before. I like how you effortlessly explain how to do things! Thanks for sharing.

  130. Beth W said:

    My favorite Jumpstart so far! I think I'd try the lace technique first-I have some goodies in mind for my friends.Now I'm off to check out your Time Machine. I'm a die hard Dr.Who fan-and I'm seeing some major Tardis inspiration. You defintiely rock!

  131. Terri R said:

    Loved your video on Jumpstart, I can see the possibilities. I have some old cigar boxes that this double sided adhesive techniques would really jazz up. Thanks for the tutorial and the chance to win some. Liked you on facebook as well.

  132. linda g said:

    I'll definitely be trying the resist on cards and I have a few candles that need some bling….perfect solution!

    Great video. You certainly simplified gold leafing for me. Another "why didn't I think of that?" Thanks for the tip AND the giveaway.

  134. Nurse Ratchet said:

    Had no idea this product existed …tx will look for it at my LSS and I have a few recycled cigar boxes to alter..perfect!!

  135. Sue Clarke said:

    Doubled-sided adhesive tape…sweet.
    I would use it to create with the lace using the resist technique. I love your steampunk art. Thanks for the chance to win.

  136. Hi Joe… thank you for your CJS video… I've never used a double sided adhesive before and you showed us some amazing techniques and uses for this great product. I'm not sure how I would use the product as yet but know I would be excited to have an opportunity to use it in my crafting and designing.

  137. Great video! I have some sheets way back in the craft vanishing cupboard. I'm going to pull them out and probably play with some stencils, glitter and flock!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  138. Amy Riley said:

    I like the resist technique. Double sided adhesive can be a short cut for embossing powders (no ink needed) and any glitter type material. I also have lots of die cuts and that technique opens the door to so many ideas. So cool! I do mailart and bookbinding and the double adhesive sheets would come in handy for those too.
    [PS. I met you in person years ago at a scrapbook store (since closed) in Westerville.]

  139. Jill said:

    I'm so happy I found you through CJS, I can see many uses for double sided adhesive sheets. I think the first thing I'd like to try would be jazzing up my picture frames, I'm also loving that mica powder! I have to get some of that, too !!

  140. Dorene said:

    Great video! I have never used double sided adhesive before. That was really cool techniques. I would love to try some of your techniques. Thanks for the chance to win. Awesome steampunk art.

  141. Faye Bertham said:

    Thanks for the inspiration Joe! I would love to use the adhesive on altered items. The guilding looked fab. Endless ideas now you have shown 3 ways. I'd love to ty the resist technique with embossing powders.

  142. Liz said:

    Thanks for the Video! I liked on fb too :)
    Cool techniques, now I'm on the hunt for that adhesive paper :D

  143. ScrappinEweRobyn (Ro said:

    Thank you for your fabulous techniques!!! I have not used doubled sided paper before but am going to add it to my stash………..I am not on facebook so am leaving a comment here!

  144. Willow said:

    Hi Joe, Great tutorial on CJS and I just had to learn more about the Zing, so I watched your video with Julie and it is an awesome machine…

  145. Jerry said:

    I signed up for email. You demonstrated products I haven't tried. I would like to win. Thanks for the video.

  146. Sy said:


    Loved your JumpStart video. I think I would use the double-sided adhesive sheets for a technique I saw using small glazed "tiles" made from paper and card scraps and "grout" made of leafing flakes. I've seen it done on YouTube and I would love to try it out!

  147. elvan said:

    I liked Createncraft on fb!! I also liked the CJS video a lot! I never tried mica beads on adhesive paper. I also would use it in card making! Thank you for the wonderful inspirations!

    Elvan :-)

  148. lee said:

    awesome tutorial Joe! I have some adhesive paper that I now know what to do with! thanks for sharing… I was also over on your facebook page and found some pretty cool stuff there too…

  149. I've used the lace technique with double sided adhesive and fine glitter but I was not happy with the amount of shine. Now that I have some Mica D'Lights I plan on trying it again. I love the idea of bling without glare. I had forgotten about the technique but I just discovered I still have all of my lace. Yea!

  150. Jeanna Cata said:

    Thank you for sharing with us on Jump! I look forward to checking out your other creations. In the meantime, I think your uses of adhesive paper were pretty neat. I have never used double sided paper before, but think it would make a neat dyi wall art project. I could use my Silhouette even to ensure a clean cut :)

  151. Katina said:

    I can see using double sided adhesive sheets to make custom stickers and embellishments from special ephemera, fabric, or handmade paper.

  152. Liz Tregear said:

    THANK YOU! FUN video with great ideas! Definitely like the grid lines on your product! Enjoyed your art, too!

  153. Regine said:

    Thanks for a great video and so good to see a guy being creative!
    Love the double sided adhesive sheet techniques. I think I will try the stencil and the gilding technique.

  154. Tina Walker said:

    I would like to make some custom cuts and use mica or glitter for my scrapbook and mixed media projects! so much fun!

  155. Hi Joe, great video! I would definately use it with some old templates and glitter, had these templates for a while now and they need to be played with!! Off to have a peek around your blog :)

  156. Robin C said:

    I really loved you jump video. I can't wait to try the resist technique. I really loved your teaching style! Thanks!

  157. Sabine said:

    Joe, I really enjoyed your video tutorial. I once did a project with double sided adhesive and glitter but it didn't turn out that well. Your video got me into the mood to try it again and see what the outcome is this time. Thanks for sharing and now I think I will be busy looking through your blog because I love your style and your work. Thanks again!

  158. Louise said:

    Hi Jo
    I loved your sharing with double sided adhesive paper, I have never used it but I can see how handy it would be.
    I loved your Steampunk Time Machine and I am off for a wander in your blog, I also liked your FB page

  159. Michaela said:

    Thanks for sharing your ideas!
    I will try the resist technique because I love glitter and I have so many stencils ;-)

  160. Michelle said:

    Hi Joe,
    Your work is amazing. I would start with the stencil technique that you showed. I do not think my hand is steady enough to do the kiss cutting technique. Thanks for sharing your incredible talent with us all.

  161. Sonia P said:

    I have yet to use the double sided adhesive sheets but it will be on my list of things to buy. I will give all these techniques a try!

  162. Lisa Campion said:

    I'm so happy you joined the JumpStart team, Joe Love your work. I'd like to experiment using your adhesive for transfers (the ol' packing tape method) since your adhesive sheets are much wider so I could use bigger images (yay!) & then highlight the photo with touches of glitter or powders. Oh the possibilities!!!!

  163. Christine Smith said:

    Joe – just loved your video! I love using stencils and glitter and would love to win a supply of the double sided paper.

  164. Amy said:

    Hi Joe! your video was awesome! Ι am seeing myself making a lot of candles with your techniques, I loved the way you made that simple candle sparkle!!!

  165. Valerie Bullock said:

    Joe – Thanks for sharing your techniques with us on CJS. I really enjoyed the "kiss cut" tutorial and would love to try that technique using the product.

  166. I love your teaching style! To the point and descriptive! I actually use double sided adhesive sheets as a pick up for my scraps and bits of ribbon, paper, fabric, etc. When the sheet is done I use it to create a background for a card or project. I ususally do this monochromatically so not to create too much chaos with the different hues and tones. Hugs!

  167. Cindi Walsh said:

    I enjoyed your video and I'm anxious to look around your blog! I've used double sided adhesive sheets to create my own "washi" tape out of paper napkins.

  168. Ann said:

    I would love to use the stencil technique! Thanks for sharing the tutorials!

  169. Sandi McLean said:

    What a great Jumpstart video! I will be looking for your product – those grids on top would be a fabulous help. I now want to use some silver leaf on glass..hoping to get the vintage luster glass look!

  170. karen keiper said:

    Loved your video. Great tips, thanks for sharing.

  171. Tabatha said:

    I so want to try the candle technique. I love altering candles but so far have only tried the tissue paper technique. They look stunning with the leafing on them!

  172. Shelly Schmidt said:

    I have some of the 2" double sided adhesive to try some stencil techniques- so I can give that a go, and try using brass stencils as well- esp love the tip about removing the paper from the stencil…… I LOVE the candle- love the idea of using the die cuts- that is so awesome- I will be trying that! And I love the kiss technique- that Koy is gorgeous! Love the nightlight and also the frog lid- WOW! Thanks for sharing your talent- really love the ideas and tips you shared and it would be so fun to win adhesive sheets to try more of the techniques- esp with the electronic die cutting machine!

  173. Eva said:

    I love your tips! I haven't really used adhesive sheets….yet! I have a lot of silver, gold, red and varigated leafing sheets and I have been wondering how I could use them! Now ideas are swimming in my head like crazy! Thanks for the jumpstart! Happy New Year!

  174. Jeanne Szabo said:

    I've stopped in a few times, but never commented. Shirley is always complimentary of your work and I can see why! Keep it up!

  175. Joe, I can't tell you how excited I am that you are part of Jumpstart. I had never been on your blog before or seen any of your work (where have I been????) but I am hooked!!! Your tut on Jumpstart was awesome (I have never worked with those sheets before either) and I can't wait! I don't even know what I will make…I need to look through your blog to get ideas. thank you!!!

  176. Sara Ament said:

    Your video was awesome! I love the way you used the stencils with mica and blingin' up the candle! I have been around and liked your FB page! I absolutely love your sparkly projects!!!!

  177. Mano said:

    thanks for all your explanations, amazing work!!!

  178. Sara Ament said:

    Ooops… forgot to tell you how I would use the double sided adhesive, I would love to use it with lace and glitter. Also will be looking into the mica!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  179. Tanya P. said:

    Interesting! I would make something using the KISS cut, that is a pretty great idea for double sided adhesive sheets! Thanks :)

  180. Lois Richter said:

    How would I use 2-sided adhesive? To heat emboss several sheets in different colors and then cut into "mosaics" and mix/match to create several versions of the same design; to cut into strips and heat emboss for embellishments or to frame and outline a canvas.

  181. Jessica Hiltz said:

    I watched your video on Jump Start 2013. It inspired me to start a new project :)

  182. Jenn B. said:

    That was fantastic. I cannot wait to try that Kiss Cut technique – I wonder if I can make that work on my Cricut!!

  183. Janene Ford said:

    I loved the lace and glitter look. I'd like to try that.

  184. Hi Joe! So wonderful to 'meet' you because of the jumpstarts! I browsed through some of your work and you have a great eye for detail and lot's of humor in it, fun!

    I'm off to watch your jump video now :-)
    And what a cool giveaway. I used to 'paint'with colored sand and I used lots of double sided adhesive sheets for that. Now I'm into mixed media and want to bring back some of that 'painting'so these would be fun to work with for sure! xxDebbie
    P.S. Liked your FB with my Little Dot Of Creativity-account!

  185. mary S said:

    Joe, thank you for sharing these great techniques. I love double sided adhesives as they have so many great uses (they aren't just for adhering things together anymore!). I might have to dust my Cricut off and try the kiss-cut technique. :) =^..^=
    PS: I "liked" the CreateNCraft FB page. I use double sided adhesives to adhere glitter, EP and metal leafing, mica powders, etc.

  186. Maurene said:

    I love the double sided adhesive sheets you demoed on the Jump Start video. I'm going to try the kiss cutting technique and see if I can be gentle with my cutting. Beutiful work.


  187. Stephanie C said:

    Hi Joe, my journey into arts is pretty new and I have never used double sided adhesive other than to add a little embellishment on a scrapbook page. Your video gave me ideas and I cannot wait to try the resist technique with either a stencil or a mask and I also really like the look of the lace you showed on the video. Thanks for sharing!

  188. helen markee said:

    I loved your first technique on creative jumpstart– the resist techniqu. Thanks for sharing!

  189. Yvonne Williams said:

    Joe I loved your segment on CJS2013 using the double sided adhesive paper. I can see myself making the night lights or making the candle holders. It is such an amazing looking project and I am learning so much from all of the creative talent at CJS2013. Thank you for joining in.

  190. Claudine c. said:

    I watched your video in Creative Jumpstart and I really love the effects you got with the double sided adhesive. I would use it in much the same way you did and perhaps emboss it a little more too. I love that it has the grid too, makes it easy to measure and cut.

  191. Jenny McGee said:

    I loved your techniques with the mica flakes. The coy fish was beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  192. Dina K said:

    Thoroughly enjoyed your video! Thanks for sharing the product and tips, and for the chance to win. I don't have an electronic cutter but I'd love to play with the double sided sheets in my mixed media work!

  193. Delores A said:

    I liked your FB page. Love the chance to win the double sided adhesive sheets. I have some wonderful products, including the Mica Lights I want to try on these sheets. I also want to try microfine glitter (forgot the name, sorry!). Love that there is a grid and you can stretch the use of the sheets out!

  194. Wilma Dekker said:

    Thank you for the video. I love the products.

    I used the double side Adhesive with cloth material (is this oke in english?) in my Art Journal. It's great to use it!

  195. donna joy said:

    Love the adhesive sheets-esp love that they have the grid on them.I would like to try them with "rust dust" i get from leftover patina solutions. Also might make some custom paper tape with them~

  196. Prerna said:

    Thanks for sharing. Will be happy to try the medium as i never used it before. But guess would love to use it with since glitter and embossing powder. Let's see.

  197. Gayle Richmond said:

    I am new to mixed media and crafting in general so I don't have a die cutting system yet but I loved the way it worked with the stencil. I have just ordered some pan pastels and while it won't look the same as with the mica delights (I may have to get those soon – lol) I am sure it will be wonderful with the pan pastels.

  198. monica said:

    Awesome site so glad I found it. Thanks Joe

  199. Donna said:

    I've never used the double sided adhesive paper and would love to try your resist technique using the stencil!

  200. Hazel said:

    thank you for the inspiring video. I would love to try a technique i saw a while ago where you stamp on the back of acetate, apply the adhesive sheet to the back, and then use gilding flakes to fill in all the uninked parts of the design.

  201. Monica Baker said:

    I think I want to try making my own votive candle holders – I saw some at a craft show with the gold leaf and bling but I wasn't sure how they had made them. Thanks for the great video on CJS2013

  202. Hey Joe! That adhesive paper is so cool. Gotta try that and the mica powders. I've not seen how they are used until tonight! Thanks a ton! Dusty

  203. Johanne L. said:

    I love the techniques you showed at Creative Jump Start. Love those double sided adhesive sheets. It's something I would love to try. Thanks for the chance,

  204. NancyGrace said:

    Great stuff! I'll be checking out your facebook site at my leisure, but for now, I would like to create shapes with Cut Bond Create in different papers and textures. Thanks for the chance to win some!

  205. Faith said:

    There are so many good so many ideas, I think I'd start by using them with glitter or flocking to start.

  206. testing said:

    Https test. Sorry

  207. Cathy Shackelford said:

    Since I love anything glitter, I will try the technique with the stencil. Love how you did the whole sheet.
    These will make great cards!
