The bundle has been claimed and all PMs (to date) have been acknowledged.

I didn't think it would go so quickly but am happy to be sending the items to a new home.

Happy Crafting!
Tina aka TeeGeeDee

  • Recollections Flower Embellishment (it is brown/beige with a brown "gemstone" brad in the center. The package says it has 12 petals, some of them are brown polka dots. It is one large flower that could be a focal point on a card or part of a scrapbook page.
  • Offray Jacquard Daisy ribbon in brown/pink (9 feet on never-used spool. The ribbon is 5/8" wide.
  • Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers (white flowers edged in silver with a clear "rhinestone" in the center. The package has 2 small and 2 medium flowers. I intended to use them for a wedding/anniversary card but stashed them away so well I couldn't find them LOL!
  • DCWV (Diecuts With a View) Glitter Stickers. This is called Fun Flowers and most of them are white with blue, pink or orange but there are also blue, pink and orange flowers. This would be fun to use on a card for a little girl (or for her to make a card!)
  • Rub-Ons by Fancy Pants Designs (I think it's called The Daily Grind). It has some fish, stylized flowers and hearts among other "design" elements. Some of it (imo) would appeal to those that like the grunge look. The colors are red, black, blue (kinda aqua), and yellow - reminds me a bit like SU's retired marigold Morning, and greens.
All the items will go to one person but feel free to pass along (or even trash) anything you don't want. I just want to keep mailing simplified.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE ON A NAME FOR THE NEW POSTING THREAD...we are trying to come up with a name for the thread where we'll post pictures of the items we are making with our PIF supplies. The "voting thread" is under "General Stamping" and begins with "VOTE now for the PIF thread..." It has a little "poll" symbol next to the orange square. The poll ends on Monday, November 14. Thanks so much.

Same here ... I totally love the idea for the thread (and am not surprised you started it). Just glad I had some time to gather a few things to offer. I hope to get more items offered but I don't spend much time in my room anymore.



Okay... back to the regularly scheduled chatting

I've finally had a chance to look for a couple things in my craft room to PIF.

I have, to the first two U.S. stampers who want these, the following:

a Martha Stewart San Serif Font Alphabet clear stamp set

an unknown brand red rubber TIO&O Alphabet missing a capital letter "R"

p1150234.jpg

p1150235.jpg


Both sets contain uppercase and lowercase, punctuation, and numerals.

Default A Few To Go

Bow Easy mocks me, but others love it. You would?

Cuttlebug Allegro Embossing Folder.

Cuttlebug no-name Embossing Folder ( has 12 circles, each with a Halloween icon in it.

Clear Art Stamps, small Story of Me set , without the top sentiment. This set is uninked and would be wanted only by someone who is making a book or family photo album that includes children.

About 20 large(largest Marvy Uchida punch) punched leaves in Fall colors.

These will go in the mail thursday.

I would attach photos but have not been able to make an avatar stick so doubt I would have better luck here.

Would someone please give me some direction on the voting. Two of the top three are tied and the leader is three away from them. Do we go with that or should we have a "run off?" Advice please.

Maybe we should give it another day, maybe?

I have an off the wall question, what kinds of sponges do you ladies use to sponge ink onto your cards?

Ravioligirl, I show 1 at 15 and the next two at 12. Pay It Forward Treasures is in the lead by 3. So if time runs out for voting, then that one is the winner. Right?

Donna, I use three different kinds...

Yellow round sponges designed for just that purpose. Have no idea of the company. They are about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and almost an inch thick.

Make-up sponges with a binder clip for a handle. BUT you have to be careful with these sponges...because of their edges you sometimes get "straight" lines on your paper and I don't like that.

Tim Holtz felt pad thingy.

Of all three...I like my round sponges the best.

Yes...that's what I'm seeing. I didn't know if because they were so close, we should have a "vote off" or what. I don't have any experience in this type of thing. Whatever everyone wants to do.

Thanks Ravioligirl. Can you buy the round ones at a craft store? And are they made just for inking? I have tried the makeup sponges also, and did not like my outcome. Binder clip, not sure what you mean by that. Can't picture it. But is that also at a craft store and will they know what I am talking about? The craft stores are quite a distance from my home so I would hate to drive all the way there and then find they don't sell them or know what I am talking about to help me out. Sorry for all the dumb questions.

I use the round sponged from SU...you can cut each one into 6 wedges so I have wedges in each color that I store in the drawer with my cs. They're inexpensive and work well.

I think if PIF treasures is leading then that's the one we should pick.

The first time I inked edges I used an old sponge and cut just a corner off and used that corner. I didn't like it because the sponge flaked off but it did get the job done. The second time I used a make-up sponge just holding it in my hand and it worked fine.

Thanks Gail and Tee, I tried one of those wedge makeup sponges and I didn't like the outcome. Maybe I should just keep practicing more. Or, there are round ones, maybe those work better?

I've never used the round ones so I'm not sure. Or sponge daubers (never used them either, I've seen them used on a few youtube videos) they're round and you can sit them on your finger and ink edges.

I tried those make up sponges and they do not work as well as the Stampin' Up! sponges. I use the SU sponges and just cut them into 6 smaller wedges. I'm wondering what problem you are having with your sponging. The trick I found was to sort of brush the edge of my card stock with the rounded sponge end and that will ink up the edges. Are you having problems sponging a background or something else? Let me know and I'll explain how I do mine.
