Black Inks: The Ultimate Guide

Today I want to share with you the Black Inks: The Ultimate Guide. I use black ink for so many things and I found out that not all black inks are the same and that some are better for certain tasks than others. So here are my thoughts and recommendations for the different black inks out there.     Black Inks: The Ultimate Guide Stamping is a very broad term and the kind of ink you want to use depends on what you’re stamping on and what kind of project you’re creating. Stamping on Paper If you’re creating a card or a scrapbooking layout you can use any type of black ink you have. However if you are stamping on an art journal page for example and later plan to add wet mediums you want an ink which doesn’t bleed.

Creative Spring Cleaning: Keep What You Need and Throw What You Don’t

Spring is here so it’s a great time to be doing a Creative Spring Cleaning: Keep What You Need and Throw What You Don’t. We all have so many craft supplies that we don’t always keep track of or remember we have so I thought about doing a little cleaning. My system of cleaning is really simple and you don’t even need to do it in one day!   Creative Spring Cleaning: Keep What You Need and Throw What You Don’t The first step is to divide the supplies into themes or subjects. For example: stickers, papers, stamps etc. This doesn’t mean all the similar supplies need to be in the same place it’s just means that you work on each subject from start to finish. We will basically have three piles at the end: unwanted used supplies, unwanted new supplies and wanted supplies. Stickers First we divide again according to themes: letters, seasons, children etc. Then I check which …
