A Gustatory Tour Through Miami and Harry Potter Land

Feeling under the weather today and decided to plan out the mini album for our Turkey trip later this year. Paging through my previous minibooks, I realized that i LOVE making books during the trip and with the right planning, die cuts, washi, and gadgets, it can be a lot of fun making a book on the go. Check out this book below from a few years back.

Papertrey Ink Type Strips – Stamps and Dies

So many crafty goodies this holiday – I am so excited!

Today, I finally got a chance to play with Papertrey Ink’s Type Strips mini alphabet stamps and die. I absolutely love it! I’m forever running out of letters in the right color and this set changes everything.

The process is very straightforward – stamp, then die cut. My new MISTI tool made things even easier. I have always been obsessed with getting even coverage. With MISTI and a few magnets, the solid stamp image comes out perfect each time. I haven’t had a lot of time to craft recently but I will definitely write up a review of the MISTI with some of my initial impressions soon.

This Papertrey Ink set will definitely be a workhorse for me, especially with project life. How awesome is it that I’ll now have an endless supply of vowels and all the other letters that always seem to disappear first on my sticker sheets! Love mini alphas!
