Stamping Platform Tool More Economical

I went for economy with the purchase of my Bira Craft stamping platform. I liked it so much that I bought a 2nd one. They are the same size and I paid for both what I would have had to pay for 1 of the popular others. The Misti is especially pricey. I also bought extra magnets with each and they were only $9.99 for 2.

I always use my stamping platforms. I like being able to perfectly re-stamp if the color is not dark and crisp enough for me. I feel professional and efficient when using them. Below is a YT link to using this wonderful stamping platform that has the magnetic alignment system. 
You'll see my 2 comments near the top of the video comments section as ArtsyLadyCrafter. Using the removable panel is SO much easier than I thought it would be and very useful! I love the way it works. Much easier to use and clean because the lid separates from the base.

The Bira Craft Easy Stamping Platform is hefty and well-made. I'm so happy with my purchases.

Hearts Are Inspiring And Bring Joy

Valentine's Day is coming! Hearts always bring joy, unless they are broken. Even then they can signify healing and rebirth. I am sharing 4 Agape Love designs that I created. Two of them feature hearts.

Hearts are inspiring and beautiful to look at. They can represent love in many different forms. The heart motif is a harbinger of good things. 

I have a Pinterest board with 484 pins of heart designs, crafts and art. If you want to be inspired for Valentine's Day, take a look! The Heart of the Matter 

You might see something that you want to make for someone who is loved.
