Design Team Wednesday

We wasted no time giving our newest Design Team member her first opportunity to share some of her crafty ideas with you. 

Here's Lynette with Design Team Wednesday:

This is a tip on how you can have a very cheap and economical pad to do your stamping on, and you don't have to clean it. The photo below shows two different sized office paper pads that I use, one is 5"x7" and the other is 8 1/2"x11".  When the top sheet gets all inky and dirty you just tear it off and throw it away and the pad is then ready for the next project.

An additional benefit is the lines on the paper can be used to align the stamps as you are inking. The photo's below show how I aligned the printed paper and border stamp with the lines on the paper pad. 

Stamp: Belinda's Borders by Lawn Fawn

This technique really does help in keeping your stamped images straight.
I hope you find this little tip helpful………………Lynette
