Creative Postage Stamps ATC

As a child, I used to collect postage stamps.  This was something I shared with my Uncle, who was a stamp enthusiast himself.  When I first started collecting and playing with rubber stamps, some of the first rubber stamps I bought were ones that looked like postage stamps.  Mostly, because I was doing a lot…

More Romantic Hearts for February

I tend to make cards in batches, mostly because of time and resources. Especially if I am rubber stamping or using inks, I really don’t want to keep inking up, then cleaning, then inking again, and clean…as this is a big downer for me (I hate cleaning my rubber stamps and area) and it is…

Using up Scraps

As a papercrafter, I usually build up a lot of scraps over a short period of time.  Unfortunately, these scraps begin to make me feel very guilty and I must use all of them as soon as I can, sometimes to a point of distraction.  There have been many times that I’ve just couldn’t make…

Love Ties that Bind

My rubber stamps have gotten me into a lot of interesting crafting moments. This happens to be one of those “interesting” times. I tend to pull themes out of my collections and will spend a month just playing with those picked theme stamps and papers. Since I had been working on Halloween, I just kept…

Valentine Dark Wheel of Love

Some days, while I am creating at my craft table, the pieces come together very quickly and easily. That’s both good and bad. Good, because it’s a fun, satisfying experience and at the end of it, I have a finished project that I really love. Bad, because I totally forgot to take any progress photos…
