Ever need the perfect phrase for your card or page?

Create your own rub on using wax paper and your printer. Most computers come with the program Paint. Open it up, create a text box and type in the word or phrase you want. Scroll to the top of the window and under "image" choose "flip/rotate" and click on flip horizontal, this will flip your text where it reads backwords. Using a piece of wax paper cut to the size of a standard piece of printer paper (you may need to attach it to the printer paper), print the image you have created onto the wax paper and quickly place the printed image down onto your paper and rub the ink onto your card or page. It may take a little practice but you will get the image you want to complete your project.

My tip has been printed in Vamp Stamp News October 2007. You can also find it somewhere in the archives of the yahoo group MidWest Stampers. Enjoy!

I have opened a new store!

It is full of the hard to find Mostly Animals stamp line in wood and unmounted forms. I am, also, offering various embellishments, inks and more. Most items are one of a kind, very few duplicates are available. If you see something you like lay claim quickly because when it is gone I will have no more to offer.


Uhu has graciously sent me a new product to test and tell everyone about! It is their own version of a tape runner. It is a handy item that fits in the hand well, is study and easy to use. Check out Maria' s blog and read all about the great new products coming out! http://www.mariafilosa.com/

Do you have too much stuff?

Never, but if you enjoy paper art and creating beautiful things, then you probably have tons of supplies that you will not use or need other supplies that are hard to come by in your area. Why not trade your goodies? I belong to several groups that are strictly for swapping art, rubberstamping and scrapping supplies. Check this one out!

Did a little creating lately...

I have actually made the time and had the urge to create some artwork. Most of the items were for swaps but I was very happy with how they turned out. The cat tarot card image is from Frantic Stamper and the ink is a burnt sienna, the text is stamped in dark brown is an Alluring Impressions creation, the wax seal is a 7gypsies item. I distressed the cardstock with ColorBox inks - burnt sienna and alabaster.

A great new site to get rid of unwanted items!

Have you jumped on the posh points bandwagon yet?? It is a great alternative to those high listing and selling fees that auction site has - posh points is free!!! And if you join right now they will give you 15 points to get started. That is enough for several items.
