Saturday Stampin'

Stamps are really a great favorite among scrapbooking enthusiasts and crafters. I'm no exception. Today I made some of my own. These are my first so they're really rough.
It's easy to make these specially if you have large erasers. I was able to find only medium sized ones so the limitation to keep it a bit elongated was a bit of a challenge but nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed shaping and carving these!

I then found some plain stationery with gradating color. It was also a happy experience using my wavy scissors for the very first time as well! It's sometimes tricky to keep the stamp imprint free of any corners so I used the back of a pointy craft tool (whose name just escapes me at the moment).

On the way home this afternoon, I thought of stopping by the hardware and getting some wire for soldering. This will be my first attempt as well! I haven't gone on a creativity craze like this for a long while!

Dreaming of a DSLR to take better shots of my work! Fingers and toes crossed! :)

Bottle Cap Experiment

I had fun with bottle caps this weekend! Glazing my designs was really delicate work but I finally managed despite a lot of slip ups (it's my first time give me a break :). My little creations now have to be made into something.Maybe I'll make them into a picture frame? magnets? or a ring? how about a pendant! The possibilities are endless!
Thanks very much to my sister Peggy for the bottle caps! This project is so cool!
