The EPILADY Is Not Just For Hair Removal

This is my second post of the day...for my Paper Smooches Sparks Card, click HERE.

I am a hairy gal.

And for many years, I had searched for the perfect hair removal tool and this was one of them. The EPILADY. Dude, this thing hurt bad!! After a while I gave up using it, the pain was too much. BUT, I couldn't throw it away, it cost too much.


Fast forward to my card making days and this little baby came in handy as a DISTRESS TOOL! It works just like a Distrezz it all by Zutter. It is how I got the distressed edges on my card.

  2. Dude. This is a discovery of the year, and darn funny too! Who's ever brave enough to use this stuff anyway?? Might as well make it worth its money, especially that Distrezz It All is not the cheapest tool either. Fantastic csrd, would have never thought of combining distressed edges with a clean & graphic panel but darn! It works so well!
