Fluid Chalk Stamping Refills Needed

 

Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eyes ~ Primary Refills Needed

I have a small Cat's Eyes chalk stamp pad set but Clearsnap discontinued them in 2019. I've searched for chalk refills and only found a handful of colors I don't need on Ebay. I thought that surely another company made chalk stamping ink but I have not seen any. I've only seen liquid chalk markers.

Do you know of a source or do you have any ideas on how I could stir up my own?

I like the little marquis-shaped pads because they are easy to use like blenders for tight, small spaces or quick card stock edge coloring. If I can't refill them with chalk, I thought about just re-inking them with my regular inks to salvage them.

Thanks for your help,

Sandi

How To Write Ebooks That Sell

If you want to begin writing and selling successful ebooks or improve the success rate of your current ones, you need to read this well-written article. It's from Abs Farah at Payhip and is an easily-readible length. Packed with essential info on how to choose ebook subjects, it will guide you on writing ebooks that are in demand and that will sell.

Top Ebook Topic Ideas in 2021: What do readers want?

Some key points are:

Successful ebooks have a narrow focus. For the reader there’s a clear promise about what they’ll learn or how they’ll benefit. 

If there’s something you know a lot about there are almost certainly people out there looking to learn.

Bloggers, it could be that you have a lot of existing material that you’ve published on your blog. Pull all of this together, organise and edit it so that it has a very specific focus, give it a snappy title

No matter what you learn and what you decide to publish, remember the most important tip that Farah shares:

If your ebook lives up to the promise you’ll get great reviews, recommendations from your readers and more sales.

Better Twitter Marketing

 

Six years or so ago, Twitter was used daily by me and my crafting friends. Though I was not a faithful participant, I remember fondly the tweeting events, Twitter bombs and striving not to be sent to Twitter jail. I also had fun using Tweet Deck for awhile.

Over the years, Twitter seems to have fallen into disuse by much of my crafting community. I run by my profile occasionally to update my banner and weed out my following and followers lists. I have even tweeted infrequently but I never liked Twitter very much. The tiny posts images and the abbreviated posts lengths always annoyed and constricted me too much.

Recently, I checked on some of my creative associates and found that many had not tweeted in years! I was not surprised but the discovery left me saddened. It was a reminder that so much online activity has declined among creative groups, social sites and selling venues. It seems to have happened swiftly within the last few years and never recovered.

During my visit, I ran across a link to this post on how to better use Twitter. I was surprised that one of the suggestions is to use only one hashtag in tweets. The article author explains why. If you find yourself still using Twitter or wanting to, read this short help article to better promote your products and services when tweeting.

Happy Saturday & Signature Colors

 

My signature colors are green and pink, lime and purple, fuchsia and chartreuse. You get it. Any combo of the tones of yellow-green and purple-pink sends my spirits soaring. I only like the clear crispness of tones (jewel tones), not shades so much and rarely ever tints (pastels). I'm a winter so that figures.

Identifying and using signature colors can help establish your brand among customers and potential customers. It's important because it can be synonymous with consistent quality and service. It can also identify your products wherever potential customers happen to run across them. Using signature colors and motifs give the impression that attention to detail is important to you.

What are your signature colors? I can trace my love for mine all the way back to childhood, especially the green. In art class, I made a papier mache giraffe and painted it green with yellow spots. I also made a pottery bowl and painted the outside green and the inside yellow. Along the way, I became enraptured with fuchsia, the complimentary color of green.

If you haven't yet done so, try to identify the 2-3 colors that make you the most happy and begin to use them to consolidate and grow your business.
