Save Some Moolah – Tip #3

Check out the website of your favorite craft store and consider signing up for their mailing list.  Many craft stores will mail and/or e-mail you coupons and sale ads if you get on their mailing list.  I have an email account separate from my personal e-mail account that I use to sign up for these mailing lists.  That way I can check this separate e-mail account to look at these emails filled with sales and coupons when I want, but don’t feel bombarded by offers in my personal e-mail box.

My favorite coupons to use are 40% off a single item and 20% off your entire purchase, so be on the look out for those and plan out your shopping trips accordingly so you can maximize your savings and be less tempted for last-minute additions to your shopping cart when you are in the store.

Hand Stamped Mother’s Day Card with Giraffes

I know a couple moms who just took their little ones to the zoo for the first time, so I thought I would stamp a card for each of them to remind them of their children enjoying the giraffes that they saw at the zoo and to wish them each a Happy Mother’s Day!

Stamps used:

“Mother’s Day” (Block Stamp by Inkadinkado)

Giraffes (Clear Stamps by Autumn Leaves from the Mindy’s Zoo Set)

Hand Stamped Football Flower Mother’s Day Cards

I’ve got some football-loving mamas in my family and since they are each such fans I designed and made these stamped Mother’s Day cards with each of them in mind – can you guess the teams they root for?:) The beginning of this design started when I realized that I could turn stamped football images into the petals and leaves of a flower.  (Note: a smaller pair of scissors designed for detailed cutting made cutting out the small footballs a bit easier).  Also, as an added touch I used a ribbon as the stem.

And on the back of the cards, I got to use my new barcode stamp with the words “Made just for you, because you’re . . . PRICELESS”.  Stamps used:

Football (Inkadinkado)

“Happy Mother’s Day” (Stampendous)

Barcode Stamp (Inkadinkado)
