Something a little extra

I love custom orders.  When time and inspiration allows, I will usually make something a little extra for my customers with custom requests.  And my last order for a honey bee journal really got my creative juices flowing.  I made a set of matching cards to go with the journal.  I was so excited to find a stamp that matched the fabric perfectly!  Here's one of the cards a made.  Turns out, I really do love this honey bee hive stamp!
the lil' extra something to go in the package...
Now I'm back to making stamps, busy as a bee... but I'll get back to my sewing machine soon, I have an idea for an apron.  Buzzzzzz......

Ok, so next weekend we have a rubber stamp convention in Columbus, Ohio, and this go-around 100 Proof Press signed up to do a make and take.  Which means my sister and I had to get creative using our stamps to make some fun tags for customer to make in 15 minutes.  Here's what we came up with...
Tags for Make and Take
We think it will be fun for stampers to sit down and enjoy using the images - just so they can see with their own eyes what great detail our stamps have.   We have so many stamps to choose from it was kind of a hard task narrowing down the images to use.  But here's the final four...

I really hope the show-goers feel like stopping by to "Press it Out" with us.

Buzz Buzz - Custom Order

Woo!  Finally posted up some new things in my Etsy shop.  And I got a custom order.  I love working on custom orders.  It usually sparks up new ideas for me.  This is a quilted journal cover I made for a customer.  I love the fabric she chose.  And guess what - we even make a rubber stamp that matches the hive on the fabric.  How serendipitous!
