Friday Freebie Tip of the Day

Hi everyone!

So if you visited last night you remember I said I would have a tip for those extra cling stickers.

What you want to do is cut out the pieces that are larger and put them aside.

Then set some time aside with your clear mount stamps.

Take a piece and match it up to a stamp.

Next take the backing off the sticker and adhere the stamp to the sticker.

Next you are going to trim around the stamp.

Yes I know I have a different stamp in this I did two at the same time 😁

After you have trimmed down the sticker just peel the paper backing off and have a cling stamp!

I hope you enjoyed this Friday Freebie Tip. Come back next week for another Friday Freebie Tip of the Day. Have a great weekend!

~Don't Forget To Assemble Those Stamps~

Have you ever placed that perfect stamp order and gotten in all those awesome stamps and then went to grab one to use and realized they are not assembled. That was me just the other day and I thought to myself....I can not be the only one who has done this and with Stampin' Up! providing these new cling stamps it is the perfect time to share how to assemble the stamps and what to do with the leftovers.

So here we go step by step.....

Step one....Get you stamp set!

Next you open your stamp case and take get your stamps and stickers ready.

Next you will remove the paper backing off the stamp as shown below.

Next you have a couple of options to add the cling stickers to the back of your stamps but I find it easiest to peel the backing off the sticker on the sheet and bring the stamp to the sheet.

Next you peel back your stamp from the sticker paper backing.

Now that you have the stamp assembled you are ready to go.

I like to do all my stamps at once and then add them to the case as seen below.

Note: The cling will be super sticky to ahead to the clear block so I usually dab it once or twice on my top or pants to help get a bit off. However, no matter what you do I do encourage the purchase of the Take Your Pick tool, item #144107, in my store. This tool has a little spatula on one end and will help you to release the stamp off the clear block much easier. I will be showing how to do this in my Quick Tip Thursday next week so I hope you will visit again next week.

P.S. Come back tomorrow night for my Freebie Friday tip on what to do with the leftover sticker part of the cling sheet. 😉

~Hitting the Refresh Button~

Hi everyone!

It has been a little while since I have last posted or gotten to enjoy creating, but there has been SO much going on! Without providing a lengthy dissertation of everything that has changed in these past several months, I am going to start new and hit the refresh button. I find sometimes it is best to hit refresh and move forward. Your inspiration and creativity has a better chance of evolving when you allow the present to move you forward.

I am working to include some new projects, FREE techniques and tutorials, and some fun new products I am enjoying using over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for this month's them: EVERYTHING OCEAN!

Of course it only makes sense, since I live in a beach town, and I am just 10 short minutes from the beach, that this would be my theme to end the summer with. Stay tuned as the creativity evolves. 

Happy Stamping!
