I’ll bet you’re thinking that I have yet another excuse for why I didn’t make the box card today, but I don’t…..I made the card, YAY! I’m not saying I didn’t procrastinate for most of the day, because I did….but, I committed to making the card and I think you’re going to like it. It’s not hard to make based on the way the ladies at MFT showed how to do it. I have seen so many people trying to line up those little slats inside the box, and thought I’d never be able to do it. There’s such an easier way, just wait until you see it.
I also took this time to try out the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I was disappointed, I have to say. The lid is heavy, and I couldn’t use it as a primary stamping tool, as I was worn out after only stamping a few images. I really wanted to like it, and thought that I would, but for me, it’s just not practical. The weight of the lid makes it too difficult for repetitive use, and isn’t that why we use them? So with that being said, I don’t encourage anyone with hand/wrist issues to purchase it I realize that I am completely out of shape, but others like me would be in the same physical condition… I think it would be a wonderful tool for people who have hand/wrist/arm strength, but it’s just not me. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to review it, as I should have done so a lot sooner.
