You'll Be Riveted!

Finally got around to shooting the video for Zutter's Rivets and Rivet Setting Tools. Be sure to give the video a view and let us know what you think! You can check out all the Zutter videos on You Tube and the archived video blogs here.




We will be "ZUPER" busy getting ready for the Craft & Hobby show next week in Anaheim. It's nice that the show is in our own "backyard!" And YES!!!!! We are launching some exciting new products that we are anxious to start sharing. Check back soon to get some sneaks of the new stuff in the coming days! This is a journal I made for the Rivet Video. I attached the chipboard letters to the Cover-All with rivets....I think it looks muy cool. I am using this "color journal" for the Copic Marker Certification class next week at CHA. I can't wait to incorporate real professional color markers in my scrappin'!


By the way, it is crazy HOT in Southern California right now, which I know is incredibly unfair of me to gloat about since much of the U.S. is experiencing record cold. It was all I could do to not crank up the AC today. Instead we went around the house in shorts and tank tops. We are sleeping tonight with the windows wide open to get a bit of breeze. Ahhhhhh!

Have a great week!

Okay your video made me get my closures out that I had and I have a question!!! I don't have the proper setter right now but is the metal part of the closure suppose to be loose and spin??? I figure I don't have this on good enough but wanted to make sure

Donalda: The closure is NOT supposed to spin. On the video you see me pound it with both ends of the rivet setter. That is to make sure it lies flat and firm. You prob need to pound a bit harder and make sure you are on a firm surface. The little wooden peice should help, but won't work if you are on a pliable surface. Time to get down on the ground!!
