Changing It Up In 2017

I'll be making a few changes here over the next week or so - I have decided not to continue on as a CTMH Consultant and instead will be focusing on different product lines and techniques.  I will be sharing links to my Consultants site for anyone looking for a Canadian Consultant.

As far as scrapbooking goes, I have just signed up with Creative Memories - I started scrapbooking with them back in the mid 90's and was happy to see them back last year.

I am also an affiliate with a few other paper crafting companies and will continue on with that.  I love paper crafting and will continue posting as I have in the past but won't be so focused on one product line.   I'm looking forward to this change - stay tuned for my adventures with Distress Oxide Inks - my latest must-haves addition to the craft room.

Flash Sale on We R Memory Keepers Precision Press at Scrapbook.com

One of my favorite new tools is on sale right now for the super low price of $14.99 (regular price $35) at Scrapbook.com

I bought the Precision Press last fall when it first came out and love it.  I have tendinitis in my left thumb which makes holding acrylic blocks difficult (and painful) when stamping.  Since the Precision Press doesn't use magnets that I also have a hard time with, I decided to order it and see how it worked for me.

Here's the video I made on Facebook Live when I first tested it out (don't mind the first few seconds where it flips around - I almost lost my wifi connection as I started):

I've also bought a Hampton Arts Stamp Perfect since making the video. It is similar to the Misti but was around $20 at my local Michael's with a coupon.   It does have the small magnets and while I like the style of it, I do find the magnets a bit of a pain to pick up and have had to cover them with Washi tape to make them easier to handle.
