Book Review -" Put Your Stamp On It"

Time for a craft book review.  This week I have chosen "Put Your Stamp On It, stationery, aprons, totes, and more", by Meagan Lewis.  This is not the usual "how to use rubber stamps" book.  Meagan has 20 great projects plus instructions for making your own hand carved stamps.  Stamping isn't just for stationery and cards anymore.  In this book, there are a number of out of the ordinary projects.

As you can see on the cover, there are some paper projects like this pretty card.

And this monogram stationery.

And these pretty lined envelopes.

But there are also instructions for home dec items like this jewelry organizer.  Plus there's a lamp shade and storage organizers, too.

I like to stamp on fabric more often than not.  Mostly, I'm working on fabric journals.  Meagan has several fabric stamping projects like an apron, tote bags, scarf and this nifty hair bow.

And this bright, sunny pillowcase.

There are plenty on instructions on carving, color combining, using stamping supplies and caring for your supplies.  This book is definitely worth a  second look.  I purchased it not necessarily for the projects shown but for the techniques it teaches me.  Check it out.
