What About Stamps?

The other day, I wanted a chicken stamp. Surely, I thought, I have one. Well, it turned out I had at least four chicken stamps! They were all styles, shapes, and sizes. It gave me a quick stamp slap in the face – check out my stamp stash first when I see a cute card I want to CAS(E).


Currently, I’m seeing all sorts of beautiful projects with leaves, and I am so tempted to buy a new set of leaf stamps, stencils, and dies, but the peck, peck, peck, went the chicken memory. Off to see what I had, and turns out, I had quite a few leaves. I found leaf sets, but also some very nice leaves in other stamp sets. GOLD!

Gotta game for you

Play a game of LEAFO!
Check your stash and see if you can get 5 across, 3 down, or maybe a black-out! Play with your friends, here’s how:

Make or print the chart (one for every player).
Decide the round’s goal of the game (3 in a row, 5 in a row, blackout)
Make or print the chart, cut the 15 leaf stamp types out to be drawn for the game.
When someone has that stamp, they get to “X” out that square.
Continue until the round’s goal is reached.

1. small
solid stamp
2. medium
solid leaf
3. wood
4. large
5. leaves

6. leaves

This game can be played with friends, at crops, during team meetings, or just for FUNN.

My Take Away So Far

Stash: Didn’t make a dent in my supplies
Limiting Purchases: loved looking through my stamps & finding new ways to use them.
Using What I Have: I loved the instant gratification of using what I had.

This is FUNN! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you will try some strip cards like these and give them to some friends you don’t know.
