Stampers' Rules of Acquisition (21-25)

(Original compilation by Deborah of the Rubber Stamper's Email List)

21) When getting a stamp for a particular project it is imperative that you buy the same image type from a variety of companies (a minimum of 3 is recommended). Once you actually sit down to make the project you will find that it is much better that you have not limited your selection to just one option of the image.

22) It is essential to have ALL the Fiskar edged scissors even if you know you won't use anything but the deckle edge. You never know when having the Victorian hearts flourish edge won't be PERFECT!

23) Get all types of markers, don't limit your creativity to just Marveys and LePlumes. Make sure you have a good selection of Tombows, Tria's and even the cheap kind you buy at the market!

24) The iron is NOT for clothes. Anyone who uses an iron for clothes is excommunicated from the Stamper's Union. (Editor's note: You may avoid excommunication by following subsection B pursuant to rule #23 which in layman's terms translates as "you may use an iron for its original perverted purpose only by purchasing an auxiliary iron. However, only the old iron may be used for household purposes. Aforementioned perverted purpose is not one that is condoned by the Stamper's Union and should be performed ONLY by support staff personnel.)

25) Tissue paper is for making envelopes and for hoarding. Never use it for wrapping packages unless you have stamped on it first.
