    Love this. One of the many benefits of being a member of SN–so many video to show just how things are done. It’s the liitle things that make such a difference–and that I would not have figured out on my own. Keep up the birthday celebrating!

  • Marti Crapo January 12, 2014, 2:47 pm

    Happy Birthday. What a fun stamp set and such a clever idea for using the die shapes.

  • Susan January 12, 2014, 8:27 pm
