Stamping your own washi tape

stamping evidence page

I enjoy visiting youtube to learn how to create different arts and crafts.  That‘s where I learned to sew my journals together using the coptic stitch!  What’s so great about this Do-It-Yourself mentality?  It's that you don’t have to follow exactly the method used by the “instructor”.  On Mission 9 of my Craft Cleanse Moira linked us to her video, DIY washi tape.  Great idea!  That led me to another video and a third (love those suggestions!)  I put all three videos to work and made my own brand of “washi” tape with rubber stamps. Then I made a new evidence page (a mixture of art and inventory) for my stamps.

Which stamps did I inventory? 
An alphabet set (the first stamps I ever bought - which I haven't even used!) and  a "barrel" of spring stamps, with flowers and such (that I use all the time)

Here’s a close-up of my evidence page.  I used light blue ink for my alphabet and multi-colored stamp pads (which I love) for Spring.

I also have a few sheets of clear stamps, which I forgot were hanging on the wall next to my desk! And some large misc. stamps gathered over the years.  Good thing I started my inventory...

If you enjoy DIY projects, watch Moira's silent video and see what you come up with!

I was sent a clear stamp and I have no idea what to do with it! I think your cleanse is rubbing off--I told my husband last night that I have this need to glue every thing down in a journal and get rid of the rest!

Nice! I LOVE stamps and don't use mine nearly as much as I should.
