It’s that time of the year ~ back to school!

PicMonkey Collage

It’s that time of year again…where children are heading back to school. It’s also that time of year for parents to get those cute pictures of their children dressed in their new clothes, sporting their new backpacks, and a big smile. Lately, the trend has also included a cute sign for back-to-school proclaiming the grade their child is entering.

I hope all of your children have a wonderful start to this school year, and I’ll share with you the picture of my daughter beginning & ending third grade last year.

Have a fabulous week & happy crafting!


Fiskar’s Stamp Press is Wonderful for Clear Cling Stamps!

I wanted to try something new that would help me with precise clear cling stamp placement. I have struggled to place my stamps exactly how and where I want them, no matter how I’ve tried. I splurged and got a Fiskar’s Stamp Press, and WOW do I love it!  Super easy to use with no learning curve at all!

First, start with your clear cling stamp.

Next, place it on the underside of the Stamp Press, using the grid to line it up evenly for placement.


Next, apply the ink you are going to use directly to the stamp on the Stamp Press.

Finally, position the stamp press over the paper you’re stamping, and press down. The orange sponges on each corner compress all the way to the table.
