My friend, Terri Sproul, just recently had her birthday – so I decided to send her a hand carved stamp set done by me.
She just made up a card and posted it up on her blog… she is a stamp nut… but a very very talent nut…
Every now and again you get a shop that out does themselves….
Sometimes being in the Southern Hemisphere and in the South Island of New Zealand things are hard to get hold of….. Everything goes to the North Island and you cannot find anything in the South Island. It can get a bit frustrating….
So unless you have lots of money to order from the states you can’t get much…
ok so that is a gross under estimation but after asking several shops here to order in replacement parts of Fiskars tools and them not getting back to me for months and months I was about to give up…. But this online NZ shop came to my rescue!!
So if you are in NZ and looking for NZ prices for these items go to Scrapbook Studio!
Right you also have to check this tutorial out….
A young, new fun crafter is on you-tube!
heres my version of the card – so lovely and vibrant! I didn’t have the colour card she used so I coloured white card with ink pads. I also pu the ribbon another way around to her. But the basic desgin is there.
