Pointing out things on my blog and coasters

As many blogs as I’ve looked at in the past, I’m still learning so much about blogging!  I thought I’d take a quick couple minutes to tell you about a few of the things I have available here (thus far) in case you’re like me and not yet blog savy.

Stampin' RSS FeedIf you page all the way to the top of the page, do you see that little organge square, under the card in the top right corner, that says “subscribe to feed”?  By clicking on this you can actaully choose to receive an email each day with the beginning of that days post.  By checking your email you’ll know if you want to read the rest of the article and if so there will be a link there for you to go right to my blog!

At the top of each article you will leaving stamping commentsnotice it says “comments”, by clicking on this, or scrolling to the bottom of the article if you’ve clicked on the article, you can leave a comment for me.   All comments are monitored by me before they are posted on the site.  At the top of the page there is a “Contact Me” button if you would prefer to contact me privately.  Either way, I love to hear from you!!

As you go down the righthand column you will notice these features:  Access to the online Stampin’ Up! catalogs, another link to receive my email updates on posts, the various categories that I post articles about, a few sites I recommend, links to my recent posts by their title, links to view recent comments that have been left and lastly, dates/locations of upcoming events. 

I know some of that was very basic but I want to make sure everyone knows what they’re seeing when they look at my blog.  If you have any questions of course you’re always welcome to ask!  When it comes to navigating my site, if I don’t know, I’ll ask my husband!  He’s wonderful!

handstamped 3D Okay, we have to do a little stamping talk for the day, right?  We can’t go without it!  So, here are some coasters I stamped.  These are actually tiles that I bought from Lowes and made into coasters with a matching box for storage.  Once again, I sell these at the Amish Markets in Shrewsbury, PA.  As I’m sure you’re staring to figure out, I have a bunch of handstamped items there as does one of my downline members, Bethany.

The chipboard boxes I decorate to store the coasters in can be found in the craft section of Walmart for just under a dollar (unless they’ve gone up recently along with everything else.)  I simply stamp some cardstock, , adhere it to the lid along with some wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon,

I hope this post has been a help!

  1. I’m very new to rubberstamping, so I’m not sure I’m ready to take on that little box from Walmart…cute as it is! You don’t happen to have a template for cutting the cardstock, do you?? 🙂 (I don’t want to reinvent the wheel!)

    • Hi June!

      Sorry, no template. It’s not too hard though. Cut a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 piece of cardstock. Stamp it if you’d like and then adhere (modge podge works well) the lid in the middle(ish). Use a pair of scissors to cut out a square in each corner using the edges of the box as a quide. Then ahdere each side. Trim down the sides so they’re flush with the bumps, use your scissors to cut a little triange between each bump and then use a sanding block to give the finishing touch.

      Does that make sense? Writing it out really sounds more complicated than it is. I have been able to purchase boxes with a bigger scallop in the past and they were much easier to work with!
