During Christmas and this past week, I have been lucky to spend a lot of time stamping with Mom. What fun! I sometimes take for granted that my big hands can easily hold background stamps and can punch paper with ease. As the mother of a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Mom gets to play with all the new products from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog – long before many are able to order. She’s excited about the upcoming catalogs, and I’m sure you will be too!
As Mom struggled to punch out some shapes with some of the new punches (she was punching a lot of the same shapes over and over), we played around with a couple of alternatives so that she could still get the clean, lined-up punch she wanted. We started by turning the punch upside down on the table – she could just punch with the palm of her hand. After the punch slid across the craftroom table a couple of times, I looked for something that would better hold the punch in place. I grabbed a Stampin’ Pierce Mat – thinking maybe that would also add a little cushion to make the punching easier. I was right! After deriving this alternative, Mom was on a roll!
