I'm still knitting the Christmas hat, but I've started on the decreases which is good but it's my first time doing a decrease with a fair isle pattern so it's lots and lots of double checking so it's like the closer I get to the end, the longer it takes to get there lol.

Today I decided to get the gnome stamp set from Club Scrap ready to use. So I use a glue that stays tacky (after it dries) on the back. I use a pizza box that has been covered in the glue. I can shut the lid and do other things if I'm so inclined.

To see more crafty spaces around the world head over to Julia's Stamping Ground

Oh, I sympathise with the 'decreasing in a pattern' syndrome! If you don't double check, then it's bound to go haywire. Not long to go now, I hope!
I thought those were biscuits covered in icing at first before realising they were stamps!! Lol, they'd be chewy then!

Always interesting to see how other woyww deal with crafty projects. I am pretty sure "fairythoughts" was doing the exact same project this week.

I find the glue on the stamps very interesting! Great concept!

Wondering how you store your "sticky" stamps??? I unmounted ALL my wood mount stamps years ago and used a thin cling foam. Took me about 6 weeks, but saved gobs of space and weight.

Happy Crafting!

I have never made anything as complicated as a hat. Only afghans. But I applaud you.

I use a similar product (not sure what you use, but they don't sell my product anymore) called Wacky Tac on the back of my UMs. I would NEVER add that foamy stuff so many people believe in. I like the way you keep yours from getting dust and other things on the stamps as they dry. Wonderful idea.

Happy belated New Year and happy belated WOYWW from # 2.

I wonder what kind of glue it is. Looks like a cool idea.

Happy WOYWW.

I hope the knitting ends up right! You are the second person stickying up their stamps, I have some of this stuff and I found that it eventually loses some stickyness and the stamps leap off the storage sheet. It might have all dried up now, both large bottles have a cracked lid which I didn't notice when I first bought them years ago.

So, this is just a "drying" box, you dont store the stamps like this once the glue dries right?
today I was mounting some wood mounted stamps that I bought before Christmas and I was laughing at my self because, I really hate to deal with mounting stamps both to wood or to cling foam so this was a fun desk to see today. :)
