Bellas, Bellas, Bellas!

Happy mail - I received my order of Bellas today and was very excited! For any of you who haven't had the chance to meet the Bellas visit them at Stamping Bella - there are loads to choose from. I belong to a yahoo group called BellaholicaAnonymous. Some of the girls there were wondering how to get nice, sharp images from the stamp (they come rubber only with no foam underlay or mount). Personally - I mount all my Bellas on EZ Mount and I get perfect impressions almost every time. If you buy a lot of unmounted stamps and use EZ Mount to mount them I highly recommend investing in a hot knife. It cuts through the underlay like butter! I've posted a great video tutorial from the Expressively Me blog on the left side - it shows how to use the hot knife with EZ Mount.
Here's a couple of Bella cards and just so you don't think I'm all about the paper...a few knit projects I've finished lately. I've been doing a lot of small knit projects (hats, scarves, gloves) because I can knit quietly while my daughter takes her naps. Also - I'm trying to use up a bunch of odds and sods of yarn/wool I have laying about the house.
