Featured Product of the Month:
I just got one of these, and let me tell you, I don't know how I ever did without it! It is a very easy to use stamp positioner that helps you make a straight stamp every time! It comes with a T-shaped positioner and an imaging sheet.
You basically place the imaging sheet in the crook of the positioner, then ink your stamp and stamp the image on to the imaging sheet using the positioner as a guide. Then you would like up the imaging sheet where you want to stamp your image, then put the positioner against the imaging sheet, remove the sheet, then stamp your image again using the positioner as the guide. Your images will be right where you want them!
I have only had mine two weeks, and have used it on almost every card I have made, and plan on using it over and over again. If you are looking to move up a notch in your cardmaking, you should have one of these in your toolbox! I give it two thumbs up!
The Stamp-a-ma-jig is on page 194 of the Fall-Winter Catalog and is $11.95.
Use your stamping or scrapbooking supplies to make recipe cards, the box to put them in, or an entire recipe book! Handmade recipe books also make wonderful gifts!
"Water" you waiting for?
Use a watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and any Classic inkpad to make lovely watercolored images! Squeeze the inkpad while closed until there is a pool of ink on the inside of the lid, then use a wet brush to pick up the ink like you would with watercolor paint, and start creating! You can also use re-inkers for more options.
If the Shoe Fits...
Shoe boxes are a great way to inexpensively store your handmade cards. The standard size card fit wonderfully in most standard size shoe boxes, and they are FREE! (not including the cost of the shoes, of course!) You can easily decorate the outsides to your hearts desire, and you can make your own dividers to organize your cards by occasion! It's also a great way to recycle!
