Putting the two together

Published on April 2, 2012

I love stamping but was feeling like I wanted to take it a bit further. I took an online workshop with Christy Tomlinson and have been putting what I learned to heart. I’ve wanted something a bit bigger than what I usually create with cards. I also wanted something a little more permanent. So much […]

12 Tags of Christmas – Tim Holtz

Published on December 5, 2010

I’ve been following Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of Christmas. (The picture of the santa wish tag is straight off his blog for day 4.) I’m a huge fan of his – the way he can put stuff together – the weathered, vintage look – just really cool. And even though my own stamps designs are […]

Sprinkling of Samples and Techniques blog

Published on December 30, 2009

I’ve been thinking a lot about starting a samples and techniques blog for my eat cake graphics website. My current samples pages are really difficult to maintain, and as with most things, difficult = don’t get around to doing it. :) Funny how that works. I’ve been noticing a lot of blogs that have projects […]

Fun day at the book launching party

Published on September 20, 2008

Today was Terri Thayer’s book launching party. I think it was quite a success! The day started out a bit gray, almost drizzly, quite different for California in September. But it was nice, we had a heat spell awhile back and I much prefer the cooler weather. The launch party was held at a little […]

Stamp masters arrived

Published on July 9, 2008

The metal stamp masters arrived from Owosso,Yahoo! Even after eight years of owing my own stamp business there’s still nothing like seeing little sketches turned into stamps. The thrill of pressing that first sheet of rubber, attaching it to a wood block, inking it up and kissing it to paper. Sweet indeed. That and it’s […]

The crows haven’t carried me away. Whew. These past few weeks have just been very busy…but then what else is new for any of us. :) I’ve gotten some pretty big stamp orders so I’ve been making rubber stamps like crazy. I don’t know if it’s good or bad that all of the clerks at […]
