Ever have the supplies that you just have to have, but then never end up using? Stamps are that never used must have for me. It wasn't until my 8-year-old niece came over this weekend that I re-discovered how much fun stamping can be (not to mention all the versatility)!
She asked to see my stamps so she could craft with Aunt Gen (that's what we do here at Gen Co.) I took all my stamp drawers out for her and realized that I have a metric ton of these rubbery embellishments!
I began organizing my stash and then I felt like playing. I spent the rest of the weekend making dozens of these cute little summery treats. My hubby came home Saturday night to find penguins as far as the eye can see!
I had so much fun! Granted, it does take more time than using ready-made embellishments, but there is a real satisfaction that comes with building from scratch.
I went all out on these mini-cards, too. I was feelin' it ~ from Stickles to watercolor pencils ~ it was crafting madness this weekend!
