For the past year or so, I have been trying to track down a rubber stamp with an image of a vintage typewriter. I have come across a few online, but never make it past the "add to basket" step. After working in a scrapbooking store with a huge cache of stamps to play with (not to mention a healthy discount), I am what you would call "thrifty" when it comes to adding to my own supplies. No matter how badly I wanted/needed a typewriter stamp, I just couldn't justify paying uupwards of $20 for one.
I knew, however, that the right stamp would make its way to me eventually, but I wasn’t expecting it to be in the bargain bin at the local big-box crafts store. And, I definitely wasn’t expecting it to be $1.50. Ka-pow! The only thing that kept it from being 100% perfect was a little quote beside the typewriter...and that was quickly taken care of with a few quick swipes of a sharp x-acto knife. Now it’s perfectly perfect (and ready to be used on my new jewelry tags!)
