Look... No Stamps!


I just finished cleaning up my craft room this afternoon and was putting the last items in their homes.  It turned out that the last item was some SU Rub-Ons.  Using my clean craft room for inspiration, I decided not pull out and stamps or ink and just stick to a package of rub-ons!  The Dots and Designs Rub Ons were perfect as they had both the images I wanted for a focus and the border I wanted to replace DSP.   The more I've worked with the Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402 (free with a $65 order:) and Scallop Trim Corner Punch #118870, the more I've grown to like them.  At first I was frustrated with my inability to get the size to match the image I'd stamped.  Now I've learned to make my mat first based on the approximate size of my image and the cut my image out once my mat is done.  I've also learned that looking at the underside of the punch as I'm working is an excellent way to ensure that I'm not making mistakes.
