A new favorite product

I am in love with Stampin' Up! stampin' scrub! No really, I can't think of a better tool for a stamper. When you are stamping, spray one side with Stampin' Mist and leave the other side dry. When you are ready to clean your stamp, just scrub it on the wet side to wash the ink off, then scrub the stamp a bit on the other side to dry it. Voila, you are ready to put the stamp away or go ahead and use it again. This is especially great if you are using the same stamp in multiple colors. The scrubbing pads come out and can be rinsed out if needed. This is a must have in my scrap space.


We were visited by a frog!

This is a simple LO I completed in March. The frog, Ribbit and the journal circle are done with Stampin'Up! Kiwi Kiss. I used the Cricut Markers (brown) for definition on the frog and Ribbit which are cut from Animal Kingdom. I really like that cartridge but don't use it often enough. I also put google eyes on the frog. The background paper is from my stash. The journal circle is hard to see but I used a stamp I had, stamped with Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip and cut out.
