A little tutorial and Lucy's Broken Dolly

Hi Everyone,

I have a little tutorial for you today on how position your stamps where you want them to be.  I have a stamp-a-magig from Stampin up which I use to align the text within a frame and also when I'm masking to make a scene, the principal is the same.  Zoe from Make It Crafty has a new set of Happy Days text stamps that comes with a little frame and some bonus chipboard, woo hoo.
The Stamp-a-magig comes with a clear acrylic, (I think), sheet

First stamp your frame onto your cardstock 

align the stamp-a-magig with your acrylic sheet 

Stamp your text onto the rough surface of the acrylic sheet with your block aligned to the stamp-a-magig tool

Place your acrylic mat over your frame (that you stamped out earlier)

When your happy with the positioning, align your stamp-a-magig to the corner of your acrylic mat. 

Remove the acrylic mat and position your block with your chosen inked text

And Job Done! Easy Peasy.

Here's a card I made this time stamping the frame onto the bonus chipboard before adding my sentiment.

And I have another card to show you today.  This is using rubber stamp Lucy's Broken Dolly.  I'm sure this is a familiar little girl's face to many, lol.
