What is this?
This is a collection of useful tips/ blurbs I wrote over the years for stamping newsletters (LSS and online ventures) and thought it was a fitting idea to put them here as a Stamping FAQ, covering basic questions people usually have on stamping, the internet, card making, tools, storage, and product use.
There is a lot of useful information on these pages. It is put together so that it is brief and to the point.
I decided on a “magical” name for the pages, so fitting, don’t you think?
I put them in order so you can choose a subject.
If the page is too long, just click on Edit –>Find on this Page and type in what you are looking for.
Also, there is a search here at WordPress on the sidebar exclusive for this site, so anytime a word is mentioned, the pages it appears on comes up.
If you have a question or feel one should be added to a page, contact me with your idea to share with hundreds of readers.
