'The Best' - for Scrapbooking

Loving the new set from the June Release called THE BEST.

It is AWESOME for scrapbooking and I was blown away by how big the stamps actually were.  See how big the banner stamp is on this page I created.

Don't you agree?  How awesome is the banner stamp?  And the tag stamp is great too (featured down the bottom with the You're #1 stamp on it).  If you would like your own set, be quick because I only have one left in stock.  You can get hold of it HERE at my Etsy Store.  And the Loop-de-Loop border along the bottom, if you are interested in that you can get hold of it at Catchy Crafts in Hornsby.  Just give them a call or let me know if you are by me and I can bring you one home (great value at $22.95).

Fun with Stamps

While I was away at a Retreat last weekend I was very industrious and got busy stamping, stamping, stamping.  So I wanted to share a scrap page with you that I created using Ippity stamps.

I have used "A Bit of Burlap' to apply texture to the Kraft cardstock background.  This is a fabulous stamp to do this and at only $10 it is a bargain (this one is out of stock atm but I will be ordering again tomorrow, let me know if you want one set aside).

Then I used the "Here & Now" set to stamp the journal block to fill in.

This set is FANTASTIC for scrapbooking.  I love it and if you would like a set you can find it HERE in my Etsy store or by emailing me at
