Totally geeked out to blog hopping today with some of my favorite friends in honor of the opening of ThingsCrafted.
You should be arriving here from my buddy Kathy Racoosin’s blog. If you’re just joining us on the blog hop, you can head over here to the ThingsCrafted blog to start from the beginning!
A little background on ThingsCrafted: ThingsCrafted is a place where handmade design and customization come together to create a wonderful company who creates and encourages color, personality and community. ThingsCrafted was founded by Britta Swiderski, a designer with a background in the world of papercrafting and a history of working with awesome graphic design clients. ThingsCrafted provides custom products – starting with stamps – to suit your lifestyle all starting with handwritten designs. They all go from pencil to computer to your doorstep! We love to create stamps and designs for addresses, “made by”s for the projects you send to others, favorite phrases or shapes for project life and planner organization and so much more.
So I was lucky to get try out ThingsCrafted’s customized stamp. I decided to have a somewhat sassy stamp (medium rectangle sized) I could use on my pocket pages.
So here’s the stamp and a few journaling cards I made with it that I’ll eventually slide into the those pages.
Totally dig that mixture of different elements. Britta did such a good job bringing things together. This stamp is just plain fun and it’s a great size for my pocket pages!
The other thing is I don’t feel like this is a “one stamping and done” stamp. I feel like it’s versatile enough that I’m going to be able to use it over and over. For a different look, I can change out how I color and/or highlight the words.
ThingsCrafted also offers some pre-designed stamps for those that want to try something new and handmade but don’t have a particular need for a custom stamp.
While I used these on a card this time, I’ll use them on a scrapbook page in the future!
