Custom Stamp & Die Pockets

Wow its been two weeks since my last post, it doesn't feel that long... Time really does fly.

So I've been mainly working at my regular non-crafty day job, some jewellery, I had a few deliveries over the past few weeks for my craft stash, I'm still waiting on some as well :) and I have been organising my craft room a bit so I can fit in some larger pieces of equipment, one is a laser printer which I may team up with a foil applicator (still debating this). I have also made a few cards for some friends - one sadly (for me, but yay for her) is a new job card which I will post about soon.

So today I bring the We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool and custom stamp and die pockets.

DIY Smash Book

Hi again every one...

Today I am sharing my entry to Make The Day Special Stamp Store Blog October Challenge - Anything But a Card mines a 'gift'.

I brought a couple of A5 notebooks a few weeks ago just to jot down ideas and notes etc. they have lined pages, a kraft cover with a pink elastic closure band - nothing too fancy. On one book I used washi tape to jazz up the cover, but left this one plain - until now, which I will probably gift out to a friend.

I have taken inspiration from SMASH books and elements of journaling.

I've used a number of items sold by MtDS; mostly Mama Elephant, but also some Lawn Fawn, some Paper Smooches and WPLUS9 (full list is at the end of the page).

Making Some New Stamps...

I have had the Silhouette Cameo stamp material for some time, I've played around with it a few times with varying results, which is why I've never really used it.

I watched a few videos and none of the tips really helped me get a good stamp impression with coloured inks, like some have had success with. The material tends to leave a distressed/faded look.

But it did work well with the VersaMark watermark ink pad, probably because its so sticky.
