it was a dark and stormy night...

and I am just playing around with photoshop tonight. Shimelle has a free download for a template here that I thought was nice....

So... since I've also had stamps on the brain lately, I decided to do a little internet surfing and discovered that PaperBag Studios got a new website. And they sell digital stuff! So cool.

I love how grungy their designs are.
And to answer a question from a previous post... Yes, all my Catslife stamps are unmounted. So much cheaper and easier to store that way. I mount them to a cling cushion called (I think) EZ Mount Stamp cushion. Just stick the stamp down, trim and voila.
I like using the cushion rather than just tape or glue with my unmounteds because I often stamp over things that have an uneven texture (surprise, surprise) and the foam gives the image some room to bend so that the image stamps out more evenly. Hope that makes sense.
Still working on the home book. And the SF book... and contemplating a few other projects.

we had a doom-cracking thunderstorm break over us earlier. hoping the power stays on...

have a good one.
