Money-Saving Monday #21


Happy Monday and WOW am I ever running late today!!  This should have posted hours ago, but sometimes life gets in the way, things get a little nutsy, and before you know it, you haven't posted yet!    Today's tip was shared with me by my buddy AJ,  She's pretty awesome when it comes to stamping!  Okay, so here we go...short, sweet and brilliant!

Do you have one of these?


...or a Cuttlebug or something similar with clear cutting plates?  Well if you do, take one of those clear plates...


...and a huge stamp that you might not have an acrylic block big enough for (like me!), and use the clear plate as your acrylic block!


What?!?!  YES, it works and the plates are big enough to more than cover almost any large stamps!


The stamps will stick to the plate just like any other acrylic block and you will have awesome results!


BOOM!  DONE!  You're welcome!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
