Did you know?
  • The Wendy Vecchi Make Art STAY-tion™ is not a substitute for the Ranger Non-Stick Craft Sheet. Ink, Paint and other wet techniques especially techniques using Archival Inks or other permanent inks are best used on a Ranger Craft Sheet.  A Craft Sheet can be used directly over the STAY-tion and held in place with the magnets to protect the STAY-tion surface.  You can purchase a pre-cut 9" x 9" craft sheet under the ICE Resin brand here
  • The brushed aluminum magnets have a foam insert. This means magnet can be pulled apart easily if stuck together, they will not pinch fingers and they won’t break! 
  • The Wendy Vecchi Make Art STAY-tion™ is great for on-the-go creating. Whether in the car or on your lap in the family room, the all-in-one magnetic surface will hold your project in place. No more slipping and sliding pieces!
  • The STAY-tion™ is a fun surface for kids, too! Magnetic letters, numbers and shapes can be used on the STAY-tion™.

Wendy Vecchi Make Art Staytion StencilingStenciling 
Line up the card base on the grid and use the magnets to securely hold the surface and stencil in place. The magnets are strong enough to hold both layers in place. No more slipping and sliding stencils! With everything held in place, it's easy to apply ink through the stencil or add paints and mediums. 

Wendy Vecchi Make Art Staytion AligningAligning
Place the card on the grid and secure with magnets. Line up the magnetic ruler and place layered elements or sentiments along the straight edge for perfect alignment, centering, and layering.

Wendy Vecchi Make Art EmbossingEmbossing 
Use magnets to secure a 9" Craft Sheet to the Stay-tion™ for the perfect heat embossing surface.  Use caution as the magnetic surface will be hot! Allow to cool before handling.

Use the magnets to hold a card or surface in place. Easily add and arrange multiple layers, diecuts, accents and embellishments without the project shifting.  When die cutting, pop the loose dies onto the magnets to keep track of them. The dies will stick to the magnets.  No lost dies!
