Unboxing of the Foil Quill for Cameo, Cricut and ScanNCut

foil quill

Yahoooooo, my Foil Quill arrived this morning and I am really excited to get going with it.  Since a lot of you asked, I wanted to give you a bit of info that I’ve gotten from my research.

Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post where I do the LIVE unboxing!!!

 

 

The following materials can have foil applied to them easily:

  • card stock non textured
  • card stock textured
  • vellum
  • vinyl
  • cotton fabric
  • satin ribbon
  • thin fun foam
  • acetate
  • faux leather

I also found that the following types of foil work well with the Foil Quill

  • Contour creations
  • Spellbinders

Anyhooo, I’m pretty excited to get mine.  Grab yours here!! As I mentioned in the video, I got the smaller ‘set’ so that I could try it out and make sure that I liked how it worked.  If you’d like to take a look at the larger set, click HERE.

I will be testing mine later today and documenting my results with video so stay tuned.

BTW, I’ve ordered my Cameo 4….. are you getting one?? Check it out by clicking on the image below!!

    I’m taking a class in South Carolina…it’s called “Row of the Month”.  It’s taught by my good buddy, Rachel.  Anyhoooooo, several of the ladies were having trouble remembering how to paper piece so I decided to make them (and me) a video.  Have you ever heard the saying that the best way to learn something is to teach it?  Well…. that’s what I’m doing here for all of us.

    Just wondering… do YOU love to paper piece? I do!!!

    Magic Points and “Interesting” Fabric Choice by LQS

     

    My LQS is doing a block of the month using Marti Michell templates

    Block of the Month LQS Fabrics

    Quite honestly, this is the first BOM I’ve ever been involved in locally.  I AM  thoroughly enjoying cutting and stitching the blocks EXCEPT for the fabric my LQS chose.  I know, I know… beauty is in the eye of the beholder but do any of you see the beauty?? Maybe I should post a larger view!
    As another example, here are a two more blocks.

    While I am using the fabrics chosen by my LQS for my Block of the Month, Rachel is creating blocks with fabrics she has chosen. What do you think?

    To create our BOM blocks, we are using templates that are brand new to me – the 3″ Square Basic Set by Marti Michell.  Have you used her templates before? I LOVE how easy it is to match up pieces and POINTS for sewing AND there are no blasted dog ears to trim off.

    Oh, in  addition to using the template set,  we added this book into the mix for MORE BLOCKS that can be created from this ONE SET.

    Are you curious to see just what ONE SET of TEMPLATES can do??? Check out this very brief video.

    Well, I better run! Gotta get this block done so that I can get the next one FREE from my LQS.

    Do you have an Olfa Rotating Mat? Have you ever had trouble spinning your Olfa ‘Spinning’ Mat?

    I recently had this problem when my friend Rachel, from Little Bird Quilting, came over to my house to play/sew. Since she was having an issue with my cutting mat, she gave me this GREAT TIP!

    Is your mat a teeny bit sticky? Try Rachel’s helpful tip!
