I find the more I stamp the easier it is to get creative.  Tip #8 of my Top 10 Ways to Get Your Stampin’ Mojo Going is to MAKE A DATE TO STAMP!  Set aside a minimum of a couple hours each week of stamping “ME” time.  Not only will you tap into your creative energy, you’ll de-stress in the process.  You’ll love the happier YOU!

Sweetly Framed stamp set (a Hostess Rewards exclusive) coordinates with the Decorative Label Punch, another time saver!
