    Kick It Pull Tab Tutorial

This has long been one of my favourite techniques to use and I have recently started using it again (August 2021 Bullet Journal Setup).

    Stamp Inks for Bullet Journals

    Starting my Bullet Journal Stamping Series with stamp inks for bullet journals. I decided to kick off talking about the inks first since they make the biggest difference. There are so many varieties of stamp inks out there, so I figured, before talking about your stamping basics, I would share the mysteries behind the different ink varieties first.

It is a bit of a lengthy one but it was a lot to fit in.…
