Many stamp sets I buy often come with a 6 inch strip of repeating patterns. I never know quite what to do with them. They’re actually all stored in a separate container that contains all the stamps I don’t know how to use.
But recently, Youtube recommended I watch some videos about the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I know it took a while but the light bulb finally went off. I didn’t want to invest in the Stamp-a-ma-jig until I was sure that I would use it. So I experimented free hand with some of those long pattern strips to make a card for my dad’s birthday. I love the look – it took me a while but now I understand how to use those types of sets!
