How YOU Can Celebrate National Craft Month!

Need a reason to celebrate?  The month of March is National Craft Month, which is a time to celebrate the craft you love.  As for me, I think every month should be about crafting as I love rubber stamping!  What type of craft(s) do you create to celebrate this month?  
 
For those of us who enjoy rubber stamping, let's celebrate the month by trying a new rubber stamping technique, using a different card fold, designing your first digital scrapbook page using the Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio Express (trial basis), or better yet, create a new technique!

If you are not a rubber stamper but have been thinking about becoming one, let me help you to get started for well under $100.  Rubber stamping is a craft that requires few supplies to get started, so the craft is easy on your wallet.  Once you begin stamping, you'll most likely want to branch out and invest in other rubber stamping products.

To get started, here's what you'll need:

1.  Paper (designer series papers) and/or Cardstock (high-quality cardstock that is dyed with pure color all the way through),    

2.  Ink (fast drying dye-based ink), 

3.  A Stamp Set (wood mount stamp set) or (clear mount stamp set), and 

4.  If you select a clear mount stamp set, you'll need an acrylic block to attach a stamp before you ink and stamp it.


Examples of #1:  
                                  
                                     

$10.95                                               $6.95 (Getting Started Cardstock) 

  Example of #2:                                        Example of #3 (wood or clear):


  

$21.95 (Getting Started Ink Spots)                $21.95 (wood), $16.95 (clear)

  Example of #4:

$6.95 (acrylic block on which the above stamps will fit)

Therefore, to get started on becoming a rubber stamper, all you'll need is $68.75 (wood mount stamp set) or $63.75 (clear mount stamp set), excluding shipping and taxes.  If you wish to get started, contact me at BeverlyPolen@GuneauxDesigns.com  and I will teach you!
