Stamp surgery

One of my favorite things to do is to take Stampin' Up! wheels and turn them into separate stamps, especially when there is a wheel with lots of great sentiments on it. I have the Friendly Words jumbo wheel cut up into separate stamps, and I adore it. I use it all the time.

Here's another one. The new Jolly Jingles jumbo wheel just arrived at my house today, and it was destined to be cut up from the very start. You can see above what I had when I started the process. And here's what I got after I was finished, and all for the amazing price of $8.50! Eighteen holiday stamps! This wheel did require a lot more careful cutting than some I've done in the past. There were at least twenty different spots that were tight enough that I had to use a craft knife instead of scissors to get in between the words. But I love this set and can't wait to use it.
