I remember going to a stamping party years ago but it wasn't something I was interested in doing. Then before Christmas about five years ago I was visiting Dawn (The Chatty Stamper) and we made Christmas cards. I got hooked and have been stamping and making cards since then. Prior to that I was a scrapbooker though I haven't done much with it since I started making cards. But recently, while unpacking, I was looking through my old scrapbooks and am thinking of incorporating stamping into scrapbooking.
When we lived in NJ, I had a whole room to myself but we recently moved to TN so now I have a craft/guest room. I don't expect to have any overnight guests for awhile, so it's mainly my craft room. Then, when we do have guests, I'll have to straighten it up and put things away to make room for them!!
I love Stickles!
Do you have a favorite technique?
I can't say that I have a "favorite" technique. I like to see what others are doing and then give it a try.
When I think about it, I tend to use blues and pinks the most. I guess it's because they are my favorite colors.
My daughter Dawn told me about Operation Write Home when it was still Cards for Heroes. It sounded like such a great way to show support for our troops. The majority of the cards I make are for OWH.
As I said, it's a great way to show support and it's something tangible I can do. I think it's exciting and touching when we see the videos of the heroes with the cards we have all made.
