A couple of questions for those of you who use creative apps. First, it says let the shiny side of the disc be facing you. I can't tell the difference. Is there a special trick? Second, being a fly tier I have X-Acto razor blade knives available. Will these do for cutting? It doesn't seem they would go through the disc. I haven't started making any yet. Wanted to get thes questions answered first so any help would be appreciated.
Oh, also, any trick to loading more than one image at a time? I can't seem to do it.
Many thanks,

Hi Bill--
There actually is a subtle difference between the two sides of the CA's. But it is subtle. Honestly don't know what difference it makes which side is up when you cut into it...

Re:x-actos--I've used them exclusively for creating my own aps. It does take a bit of pressure,but they will go through the material. Also, because of the thickness, it is a bit difficult to get the kind of detail I had hoped for. But still, I'm really very happy with some of my CrAps (;-0).

Here's a thread that has a lot of good info:


Just some examples of CrAps I've made (all with x-actos or dremel tools) plus a lot more contributions from other folks.

As to The Upload Problem--I explained what at least works for me HERE

Hope you find this helpful--
Take care,

Johnny Crabcakes
