About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Stamp Binders

Just received my second Tim Holtz Unmounted Stamp Binder in the Post. My other one was getting rather full. They recommend 8 pages a binder and I had about 12 and some of those were garbled together from odd pieces of acetate.

Have just realised that the pre-backed rubber stamps from Tim himself are rather thicker than the basic clear stamps so perhaps it wasn't too bad after all. Anyway I have bought another set of refill pages too. I'm not a great stamper so here are my stamps. I do have a few wood backed ones as well, but this is mainly it!

Also I have splurged out with my new distress paints and coloured my original binder blue and green. I intend to do my new one pink and yellow but not until I have had it a while I suspect.

I have made a new tag for my 2nd  one as well in the new colours. As my first one had my first name initials, my 2nd one has my surname initial (just in case you were wondering).

Well that is me, stamping and organisation.

Just need to sort out the things it has displaced on my shelf now! Problems Problems!
