This blog is dedicated to stamping, tips, musings, and whatever I want to post. I want my cards to make you smile. You may copy, post, pin, anything you want. To me this is a sharing hobby.

Today's Tips

1. I have found that a very rough grade nail buffer cut into tiny pieces is perfect for fixing bad punches. You can literally sharpen the exact place giving you trouble.

2. A cup hook attached under the edge of your desk keeps your embossing gun handy and safe.

Comparing Felt

I recently received my Vintage Vogue felt and wanted to compare it to the small piece I got from Papertrey. The Vintage Vogue pieces are much larger and much, much cheaper (about 1/4 the price as PTI). I was delighted to find it cuts equally well with virtually no fuzzy edges. The PTI felt is slightly denser, but Vintage Vogue gets my vote as it is a very close second with dozens of colors at prices that cannot be beat. Also, they shipped it the day I ordered it!

Answering a Much Asked Question

I have been asked how I have time to make a new card and to post it almost every day and work full time and do all the things I do. The answer is, I don't. About once a month, I photograph all the cards I have made the previous month and pre-schedule them to post all by themselves. Blogger has that feature and I love it. Were it not for that, you would only see things from me sporadically. No way, on work days, would I be able to get a new card made and posted each day.

Spring Rose

Background is done with my Score Pal. Border punch by Martha Stewart. Corners by Cuttlebug. Background stamp by Waltzingmouse. Sticker is unknown.
