I hope everyone got a little time this weekend to scrap or make cards, since it was National Scrapbook Day on Saturday. Our weekend was quite busy with our sale going on.
We created more Creative Cafe layouts so we decided to extend the layout sale. 5 Creative Cafe layouts for $10. Once you purchase 5 layouts, any extras will also be at the sale price of $2.
I'm excited to announce that we just received our first shipment of Clear & Simple stamps. Nikki (the owner of CSS) stopped by our store today with some amazing card samples using her stamp sets. One thing I love about this company is that they are a local Maryland business. Clear and Simple Stamps are high quality,clear photopolymer(not to be confused with Silicone or Arcylic),
environmentally friendly stamps made in the USA.
Care and Conditioning
Once you’ve purchased your stamps, your first impulse is to dig right in and start stamping. But before you start stamping, always, always, always condition your stamps. (TIP: Even your red rubber stamps will work better after conditioning them).
Simply take an eraser and gently rub it across the surface of you stamps. Remove the eraser lint from your stamps by spraying Clear and Simple Stamps Stamp Cleaner, designed specifically to clean and recondition your stamps with every use. Wipe them off on your Clear and Simple Stamps Scrubber Pad, and store them back on their original index sheet. From that point on, your stamps are conditioned and prepped for endless hours of stamping.
It’s good practice to wash your stamps on occasion. This will prevent dust and dirt build up, which causes your cling backed stamps to lose their ability to adhere to clear blocks. But not to worry. A little mild soapy water will bring them right back to life.
Nancy Nally at Scrapbook Update wrote an article, for those of you that have IPhones or IPods. The first one she mentions is the Clear and Simple stamps app. Here is the link.
In addition, Clear and Simple Stamps is now accepting publication submissions if anyone is interested in being published on the app (more details available on the website: http://www.clearandsimplestamps.com/app).
