Tuesday Tip of the week and the Weekly Deals!


Tip of the week:
Do you have your labels on your clear mount stamps?
If you are having problems keeping your stamps on the clear blocks.  Use some Chapstick.  Yes! Chapstick.  Apply a bit to the block, press the stamp into it and it will stay put while you stamp.
It's very easy to clean up, just wipe off the block and the stamp with a paper towel.   I learned this technique from my friend KellyJean Gettelfinger.

I tried temporary tape in the past but it gunks up the block and every bit of dirt sticks to them.

I have also tried cutting the label smaller and leaving some of the foam exposed.

Leaving the labels off entirely.  That's creates a problem with the word stamps.  What directions should the go?  If you prefer your stamps with no label, one idea is to draw an up arrow on the foam.

The best idea is the Chapstick on the block.  I love a simple solution!

Happy stamping!

Thank you SO much for that wonderful tip! Keeping the stamps on the blocks has been a problem for me and using the glue dots on the block makes such a mess. This is such a great solution...Chapstick it is from now on!
