Quick Tip: Getting a Good Impression with a Large Stamp


I hope you enjoy this video. I was so excited. I found some fun royalty-free background music and figured out how to add it to my video. Yes, I know I get excited over some pretty strange things. But when you're technically challenged like I am you tend to get excited over the smallest of accomplishments.

Anyway, my plan is to start adding some short, 2-3 minute, videos to my blog featuring a quick tip or instructions on how to use different tools. I'm hoping to do one a week so be sure to check back often. And if you have ideas for what you'd like to see please send me your suggestions.

For those fans of my longer project tutorials, don't worry I plan to continue with those too. I try to do video tutorials of projects I have created myself or techniques I particularly enjoy. These type of video tutorials take a little more planning and production, but I have a notebook full of ideas for the coming year. So again, stay tuned!

And finally,....

Best wishes to all for a wonderful holiday season. May it be filled with peace and happiness.
Love,
Michelle

All this time I've been told to stamp on a completely flat surface. I'll give it a try. Thanks for the tip -- love ALL your videos.

Thank you for this tip! My husband recently purchased me several large, detailed background type, textile stamps and I just know this is going to come in handy! I'm going to nab a phonebook right now and put it where I'll see it before I forget! lol

Michelle,
Thanks for the tip.
I have the purple foam pad made epecially for this (not expensive, only $4.99). But I wish I would have thought about this. Way to recycle!!!

Love your videos. They are so inspiring. In regard to use of telephone book. That solves a real problem. Also I use one or an old catalogue when I glue.
