NEW: Photopolymer Stamps!

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.
Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.
Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases

Home Sweet Home :)

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Gather Inspiration In Your Travels And Carry It With You Wherever You Go!
Home sweet home!  I have been away for over 3 weeks and am happy to be sleeping in my own bed again :)  Now you know why my posts have been quite sporadic this month :)  My travels, for both vacation and then work, took me to Turks and Caicos, Melbourne, Australia, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, and Bangkok, Thailand (and a few airports in between!).  It was a wonderful trip and now I am trying to recuperate and figure out what time zone I'm in :)  I was inspired by so much along the way.  This is just one photo from my time in Bangkok.  Hopefully I can share more pictures with you over the next few weeks.  I am also hoping to let everything I experienced inspire me :)  I feel like I have filled my well with so much!  I will be able to sip from this well for a very long time.  Here are  just a few more photos to share:

Creating A Palette To Travel With Watercolor Wonder Crayons

Have you ever wanted to travel with your Watercolor Wonder crayons but were afraid they might get lost?  Or maybe you wanted your kids to be able to use your Watercolor Wonder crayons, but you were afraid the crayons might get broken.  If so, you're in luck!  You can create a very simple palette that you can take with you or give to your kids without worrying about loss or breakage!  I just created a simple table on my computer - but you could just write on a piece of copy paper - and then I laminated it.  Once the sheet is laminated, you can create a whole area of color by drawing on the laminated sheet.  When you are ready to do some coloring, just use an Aqua Painter or brush with a bit of water and use the colors directly from your laminated sheet!  You can even create a little laminated booklet with luggage tags with one color per tag!  With a little creativity, you can take your supplies on the road :)
