Storing Ink Spots

Hello, Crafters.

With the introduction of the Stamparatus, Ink Spots are really going to take off big time! 

Well, they certainly will with me, and probably a few thousand other crafters, too! 

In today's video, I explain my previous relationship with stamp positioners, and how it's all changed now Stamparatus is coming! 
I realise I'm probably in the minority here, but I have never seen any attraction in a stamp positioner, except when you have a repetitive job to do like wedding invitations. 

When I was making my daughter's wedding invitations last year, one of the ladies in my team, Maire, very kindly send me a stamp positioner, and I gave it a go, but failed miserably! 

The reason for this was that the stamps were too small and the ink pad was too big. 

I'm sure I would have been fine if I'd had some Ink Spots I could have inked up, but I didn't! 

I have no intention of being caught out again, so I have ordered both sets of inked Ink Spots that are available in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue.

I've also started inking the ten uninked spots I bought! By the time my Stamparatus arrives, I'll be able to hit the ground running!

The original idea for my Ink Spots storage case was from Carol B Crafts, but after I saw her video, I saw another video where a demo was showing how to use the Stamparatus. 
She had a brilliant tip about using Daubers for the Ink Spots, too, so I decided to make a video combining both ideas. 

As I was videoing using Stamp Cases for storage ideas, I shared my other Stamp Cases that I use for storage! 

There are definitely plenty of hints and tips in today's video.

Happy Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
