Problem with Cling Mount stamps....?

Anyone else having this problem?
Cling mount SU stamps not sticking to the box.

I was at a SBS a couple weeks ago and
someone had came up with a
great solution for this problem.

Problem ^ ****************** Solution ^
This is the solution! Peal and Stick the negative piece of rubber
into the case, punch out and add the stickers just as directed
then simply push them back into the cutout.
It works like a charm!
Just wish I would have found this solution sooner!

Whoever came up with this idea...God Bless You!
You have made my world a little better!
I'm sure you will keep me from loosing stamps
and for that I'm thankful.

SBS Thank you gift.

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm hosting another Shoe Box Swap in Oct. but the
swap will be Christmas/Winter themed.
These are going to be for a little game.
All but 4 have ribbon inside the special 4 will have
something more! Can't give it away just yet...
several ladies that attend my swaps read my blog.
So just a little teaser for them!

I just love the pillow box die!
It's one of the easiest dies to use, they don't
take a ton of red tape.
Just a GREAT die. I'm also in love
with these two stamp sets
Tiny Tags is truly a MUST HAVE
it adds that little something without
digging for hours for the perfect embellishment.
Punch Potpourri is a SU level 1 hostess set
and it's GREAT it will be a go-to stamp set for years to come!

Hugs and stay inky!

School Punch Cards.

My Oldest is having a hard time in 1st grade. He's not wanting to
let Mommy go! So the Teacher and I came up with a punch card idea,
if he keeps a smile in the mornings and through out the day he will get a
punch on his card. At the end of the week he gets a special treat of his choice (within reason).

Hope it works!


Guess Hoo?

I can't get enough of this Owl Punch lately.

Made this card last night hints why the pic's are so dark
I guess.

It's a CASE of this card on SCS. I just love the card and wanted to make my own.


Stay inky my friends!

Border Punch Technique

I made these card a few weeks ago I've had so
much fun with the Border Punch Technique.

You just take any border punch Martha and Fiskars used here
and cut them so they have a quarter inch strip under the boarder then
take scissors and cut about every quarter inch along the strip then tape on the
underside of a nestie circle. Really easy and now I don't feel the need
to buy the new nesties! Saving money by using crap I already have

Oh and love the new SU Greeting Card Kids!
This little girl is just beyond adorable!

Stay inky my friends
