Best DIYs of 2017

I can hardly believe 2018 is here! I have a few of personal goals set, like less tacos more yoga, but I wanted to take a look back of the greatest hits of 2017. There were a lot of fun projects we did together, but these were the most popular!

The Year of Embossing!

I learned how to emboss this year, finally, and it changed my stamp life! We learned the basics, and how to emboss on alternative materials like fabric, acrylic & wood

Felicette introduced its own line of Ink Pads (I still can't believe it!)

We made our own envelope liners!

We even stamped on rocks, on rocks!

Make your own Coloring Books

Rubber stamps can be used as just more than embellishments, but I mean how great are they stamped on your envelope? You can also use them to make your own coloring books. Stamp the pages for your kids or have them do it. Bring them to restaurants for a little quiet time or pull them out on a rainy day!


You'll need:
Assorted Stamps and Ink Pads
Blank Cards for Stamping
Crayons, Markers, or Colored Pencils

Since your cards are already folded in half all you need to do is decide how many pages you want and then staple! I used three cards for my booklet. Staple inside the crease of each book to hold it together. 


Stamp your images inside the booklet to later be colored in. You can stamp them in all black (like regular color books) or use colored inks.


Now your book is ready to be colored in, or save it for later! 

Library Stamp Kit

Picking a favorite out of my new stamp kits is like picking a favorite child (or in my case cat). Pretty impossible to do, and not to mention unfair to your children. You can't have a favorite child! But if I had to pick it would be Gidget, I mean the Library Stamp Kit.

When used together they make a pretty perfect book plate. But you can also separate them. Feeling minimalist? Just use the "This Book Belongs To," and sign your name under it? Now wanting to stamp in your books at all? No problem, use them to make cards and tags and fun scenes!

Instead of stamping the kit straight into your book, why not use vintage style Library Cards for a really nostalgic look?

Or skip the actual books altogether, add a cat and you have the most adorable stamped scene I have ever seen!
