Love to make these things!! I joined the "Anything Goes Twinchie Swap" at the message board. I signed up for 5 groups and had to make 20 identical twinchies per group, so I ended up making a total of 100 twinchies. It was so much fun!!! They are due by the end of March but I am sending mine out over the weekend. Hope they like them. Thanks for looking!

Stamps Index

My stamp collection is continuously growing (most of them are from SU!), so whenever I need to make a card or craft using stamps, it takes me forever to go through each of my stamp sets to decide what to use. So I came up with the idea of this Stamps Index. I cut in half 8.5 x11" mutipurpose white paper and wrote down the stamp set name. Then I stamp all the images in that stamp set on the 4.25x5.5" paper as shown in the second picture. For the cover and back I used SU! cardstock and laminated it using the PC YourStory binding and laminating machine. Then I bound all the pages using my BIA. I left a buch of blank sheets for the future stamps I am planning to buy :) It is pretty simple but helps me speeding up the design process. Thanks for looking!!!
