hey guys this Courtney I'm here with a pretty quick video today just sharing some of my money saving tips in the craft room some alternatives that you can use or use maybe some of the supplies that you have for multiple things so we're gonna start off with the foam tape now I've always always always used the Scotch foam tape which I still love but I have recently discovered this foam tape I believe it's pronounced X hacen and I have found it on Amazon than I actually found it as a recommendation through post on stamp junkies on Facebook so it is significantly cheaper than the Scotch foam tape but it is also very sticky so you'll see that I have two pairs of scissors that I constantly bring out one is for my regular cutting and one is specifically for foam tape because after a while you will get a little bit of a residue it is slightly thinner as far as the width goes but otherwise it's pretty comparable to the Scotch foam tape except for the price so over on Amazon the Scotch foam tape is $32.99 for 36 yards and for the X fastened foam tape it is $11 and 19 cents for the same amount so it's like a third of the price so next we're gonna move on to a sham it here is my dirty chamois and it's not even wet it's pretty dried out right now but instead of using the stamp shammies that lawn fawn and Gina Kay have although they're wonderful I have discovered these over on Amazon as well they are actually for your car they come in a roll and you can see that I'm just about out but I typically just cut it where it's folded so I normally get eight of them or eight of the size that I cut them down to out of each one of these rolls they are a little bit damp while they're in the packaging so I always keep the top on them but they're not soaking wet but they're really super easy to cut so like I said you will get eight of them provided that you cut them in equal sizes like I do and they are again significantly cheaper than the stamp shammy itself so the stamp shammy over on Simon Says Stamp for the lawn fawn one is dollars and 99 cents for one for these shammies you will get a total of eight and it's nine dollars in six cents on Amazon big difference next we're going to move on to a craft mat this looks very much like a ranger craft mat the traditional craft mat that if any of you have been crafting for more than a couple of years you will recognize this so this is not actually a Ranger craft mat although it looks exactly the same it's actually a baking sheet that comes in a five pack over on Amazon rolls up nicely for storage works identically to the craft mat itself very easy to clean perfect for watercolor techniques and ink techniques and like I said very easy to clean differences once again the price so the Ranger craft mat ranges from anywhere from fourteen to eighteen dollars while this mat you get five in a pack and it's eight dollars and 69 cents for five of them on Amazon so next we're going to move on to just a little bit of a hack so you can see that I have a self-healing cutting mat here that I have cut down and I just use a regular box cutter for this I'm sure there's probably a different kind of tool that you should use but that's all I got so I cut it to the same size as the cutting mat for around Gemini and this will work for any die-cutting machine I just want to pay attention to the thickness so if it's not quite as thick as your cutting mat you may have to add a shim which I do for my Gemini so I'm going to use this as my base plate I'm gonna die cut everything the same exact way but you can see that I am using this metal shim that I don't typically use but I used for this just because the cutting mat is a little bit thinner than the cutting mat for the Gemini but you can see I get perfect results it is a self-healing mat so doesn't matter how many times you cut it it's going to self heal so whatever cutting mat you have once they get dirty or stained or whatever and you don't want to use them anymore cut them down and use them for your die-cutting machine so here is my tombow mono multi glue if you have ever watched any of my videos you'll see that this is my favorite he said for everything it is cheap I could use it for multiple things not only is it my regular adhesive for you know gluing my panels to my card base but it's also repositionable so I'm gonna use this on my little mat here that I have created for my Misti I just printed this off from the internet on a piece of cardstock going to score it a little bit of this tombow mono multi glue and smear it around with my finger let it dry for just a couple of minutes and it becomes repositionable so I'm going to lay my card panel down there line my little stamp up and stamp this and normally the stamp would kind of move around your paper a little bit if you had to stamp this more than once but you can see once I lift up the Misti lid it stays perfectly in place because of that repositionable adhesive underneath it and I can use this over and over so the tombow mono multi glue super cheap and it can be used for just about everything it's permanent and it's repositionable four dollars and 69 cents on Simon Says Stamp and $5.99 on Amazon so next we're going to talk about the scan and cut I have the skin and cut too because they don't feel like it's necessary to get the latest and greatest of everything that's out there I use mine just to scan and cut in replacement of die cuts die cuts are very expensive and sometimes you like your coordinating dies with your stamp sets but we can't always afford them so although this machine is very expensive it pays for itself in the long run the mats however are also very expensive and really not all that sticky so here I'm using my mat here and typically I would clean this off with just a sponge and some water to get all of the cat hair that's still stuck on there and any residue that I have from paper but I didn't do that this time I just need to add a little bit of stick so I'm using this 2-way glue by zig and you can see that it comes out blue it's kind of like one of those paint pens where you have to dab it onto a scratch piece of paper so that the glue starts coming out you can see that I shook it don't shake it you don't need to shake it or else you're gonna splatter it all over like I did but once it dries it will become clear so you will know when it's dry when it's no longer blue and it be repositionable it's perfect for the skin and cut mats it also works well for the cricket mats I don't know about the other mats because I don't have any other machines from that other than those two but they work great for both and it'll save you a ton of money on your mats so let's talk about price of all three of these things obviously the machine is the most expensive the latest and greatest scan and cut is like four hundred dollars but the scanning cut to is 200 $89.95 on Amazon the mats are 13 dollars apiece however the zig to a glue is six dollars and 48 cents and I you could probably Rhys tick your mat about 20 times so definitely worth it here I just wanted to talk about my three main tools that I need in my craft room that are very inexpensive first is the white gel pen not only is this great for adding details to your coloring and to your images but it's great for fixing mistakes so this will save you time and save your cards you can just kind of go over any smudges with your white gel pen and fix them right up same thing with the sand eraser this will take off any ink smudges if you have a fingerprint or something like that this will take that right up same thing or almost the same thing for the adhesive eraser which will if any of your glue kind of seeps out the side of your die cuts or the side of your panels let it dry rub that up with the adhesive eraser it may take a few times but you'll get that stickiness tonette residue off of your projects so these are three very inexpensive tools that will save your cards the sand eraser all of these prices are on Amazon sand erasers two dollars and 89 cents adhesive eraser is two dollars and twenty nine cents and the white gel pens I typically buy in a three pack because I use them all the time and they are six dollars for three of them so I hope this video was a little bit helpful for you guys to use what you have or save as much money as you can so that we can spend it all on stamps and kopecks thanks so much for stopping by guys have a great day bye

This video explains the 3 lessons every creative learns in finances too late. I’ll tackle how to budget and save money, especially as a broke artist. Planning a budget doesn’t have to be complicated and an easy budget such as the 50 30 20 budget can work for you too!

You can get to financial freedom and start managing your money the efficient way. As creatives, we just need a little push to the visual side so we can stop focusing on the numbers and start focusing on an easy way to understand our finances!

So often I find complicated dissatisfying diagrams trying to explain how to budget or get out of debt, but this doesn’t have to be the case!

Grab your notebook and let’s start to think about budgeting the simple + creative way!

hey guys I'm Forrest like the trees today we're gonna talk about the three lessons every creative learns about finances too late so let's dive right in number one you gotta pay yourself first I feel like I learned this one a little late in the game I created a fashion line and the biggest mistake I always made when I sold garments was that I never paid myself at the end of the day I had no money to show for all the work that I had put in and as business owners and artists we always want to make sure our business is on its feet by reinvesting on upgrading our equipment but you have to remember you're not working for yourself for free you are your very first employee and the most important one and if you're not paying yourself properly at the end of the month then your business is really just a pool of your own free labor and you're basically an unpaid intern and personally I don't need any more internship hours log to my name so start paying yourself weekly bi-weekly whatever it is just give yourself a paycheck so the second lesson is to budget but budget to find clarity budget to clarify where your money is on the up so often budgeting is misconceive just counting every penny and is no fun but budgeting is really more about taking control of your money and knowing where your pennies end up you want to know where your money is going and how do you use your money to your advantage right if your money can work a little bit for you then why wouldn't you want to be in control of that budgeting doesn't have to be complicated either so just take a moment and explore different types of budgeting that can work best for you as an artist and that leads me to my third lesson one type of budget that I find super visual and easy to wrap your head around and you know this is especially if you're an artist or creative it's called the fifty thirty twenty rule it's a super simple way to remember where your money should go a budget for people who don't want to budget and so first think of a circle and we're gonna slice up your circle like a pie your circle is gonna be your income and we're going to distribute your income in two different sections 50 30 and 20 so slicer pie down the middle and 50% of your income is gonna be your knees like groceries rent insurance you know whatever the things that are necessary for you to keep thriving or surviving next slice the other half of your pie 30 percent is going to be anything that you want and we're separating your pie into once and needs so far do you want a new pair of shoes or do you need them whatever your wants are it should generally only be about 30% of your total income and so the remaining 20% is gonna go to your savings and this can be savings account or investments even but the more you save the more your money will work for you and you know make sure to start investing early the earlier you invest the better and so I hope some of these tips helped you guys out especially if you are creative struggling to get a hold of your finances if you guys have any questions just DM me on instagram at forest Alethea and i can help you to get the most out of your money now go get creative and manage your money thanks so much for watching if you like my video give me a little love like and subscribe below bye guys
