Tutorial: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

Just thought I'd share a quick tutorial on how to use one of my FAVORITE tools, the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. I picked this baby up locally before I joined the Stampin' Up! team, and was super excited to see that they carried it in their product line. You'll see in my tutorial that mine is a different color, but it's the exact same tool.

The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is awesome for lining up those wood mounted rubber stamps perfectly. It's hard to see exactly where the rubber is underneath the wood, and a lot of times, really cheap rubber stamps can be mounted at a skewed angle.

I used it to line up some butterflies for a card I was making for a friend. I was already working on this card when I started taking pictures. I'd already used my little Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for the "congratulations" sentiment.

Anyway, ink up your stamp, line up the little plastic sheet into the corner of the jig, and then line up your wood stamp along the same corner and stamp right on the plastic.

Here's what you'll get - a stamp on the plastic (don't worry, it wipes off super easily):

Next, you'll take the plastic sheet, and line up the image on top of your card where you'd like the stamp to be placed.

Then, line up your Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to the corners of the plastic sheet, just as before:

Now, hold the jig in place, and gently slide the plastic sheet away. Line up your stamp in the corners, and stamp away:

Perfect placement!

Here's my finished card:

I seriously love this tool. It's the handiest little thing, and it's very inexpensive. Get yours here!
