Once Upon a Time...in my 11 years of scrapbooking/stamping career there came an additional type of card making and it came through a wonderful site called The Cutting Cafe, and a special womyn that owns the company - Regina Easter. Regina hosts a wonderful DIGITAL stamp company, something very new to my creating palette and artistry. I have forever struggled with the concept of digital stamping or scrapbooking. I am a true die hard hands on person. I couldn't see myself creating art at the computer, though I often found myself amazed by the art people did created digitally (ok ink stamping sisters...please don't abandon me!)
Well, (story continued) this weekend I discovered something about myself. My fear of computers was in the way of my even considering the digital way. Due to the fact that I fell upon (and in love with) the digital stamps at The Cutting Cafe I was determined to "face the fear and do it anyway!" Regina was able to ease me into the process of digital stamping and I am SO excited. The TRUE benefits for me: I can spend time with my copics (Ya Hoo - they might end up paying for themselves, though I doubt it, but I LOVE them anyway, my SU markers, prisma's and gamsol and SU wonder crayons. I can color the day away with a simple push of a button on the computer. I love the minimal space required for these stamps as well. I hadn't thought of that benefit previously - just storing them on my computer - making room for more rubber stamps (see sisters, I haven't left ya!) I can use my numerous and beautiful rubber stamps or *ahem* DO DIGITAL (I feel so grown up and computer saavy!) I did recognize something though, at heart, I am still in Kindi-Garden, with my nappy mat, loving coloring! So now I get the choice...YAY. Win-win. Today's card is therefore dedicated to THE CUTTING CAFE and a very patient and helpful owner - my new digi-stamping therapist - Regina Easter.
