What can I use it for?
You can use stamps to decorate cards and scrapbook pages, organise your planner and make wrapping paper. Calligraphy can be used to make beautiful personalised labels, wall art and letters.
Why do you like it?
I’m a big fan of stamps, which I used to customise all of our wedding stationary. As our wedding is seaside themed, I used a lovely seashell stamp for all of our wedding invitations and associated envelopes. It’s really easy to do and makes something personal in seconds.
Do you enjoy stamping, what are your favourite designs? How are your calligraphy skills? I really need to improve mine, I’d love to read some tips and see some examples!
