While I wouldn’t consider myself a ‘Paper Crafter’, I do like to make memory books and do paper crafts with my daughter. The memory books are an ongoing process. Every 2 or 3 months I print out some pictures of our family and add to my current memory book. At the moment I have 1 book done and have recently started another one. I started the memory books when my daughter was born 5 years ago.
Decorating the pages gets pretty addicting so that is why I only do 5-10 pages at a time. I don’t want to get burned out. I spend about 30 minutes on each page. It may seem like a long time but it really isn’t. Once I get going with my stamps and cutting the paper 30 minutes just flies by.
Finding supplies to make my memory books are a challenge. I tend to look for very specific items and most of the time I can’t seem to find them. I use stamps a lot because they are easy to use and provide a lot of detail. When I was working on my memory book for my daughter’s first 3 months I wanted to find some stamps that were classic but cute. When I visited my local stores I couldn’t find anything that really called out to me. I ended up buying some Classic Winnie the Pooh stamps online and just used those.
I recently found the Crafter’s Companion website and their selection of stamps is quite amazing. I love their Beatrice Potter line and would have went with these instead of the Winnie the Pooh stamps in a heartbeat!
I also like their Angelica and Friends Stamps. These little girls are adorable and they will be perfect to use in my memory books while my daughter is growing up.
Crafter’s Companion has the largest selection of stamps that I have ever seen. Their stamps fit right into my style so I know I will be purchasing from them soon. Have you purchased any items from Crafter’s Companion? I would love to hear about what you bought.
