I am a big fan of stamping and I have made some stamps in my day so I was super excited about Stamp It! DIY Printing with Handmade Stamps. I think my favorite part about Stamp It! are the projects. Whether you choose to make the stamps using the great tutorials and templates or use pre-mades the projects are so cute and fun. There are all sorts of paper and fabric projects. I predict nothing in your house will be left unstamped with all the inspiration in Stamp It!. I have a couple of favorite stamps one of which is my scissor stamp and so I thought I’d try the ribbon stamping idea in Stamp It!.
I think it worked out pretty cute. I also stamped on some butcher paper that I recycled from some shipment packing material. I think the two will make a great combo or used by themselves.
