If you want to see some CAS cardmaking, some videos and cool ideas, you're in the right place! I'm a science teacher by day, a chorister on Tuesday nights and throughout December, and a cardmaker all the rest of the time :)
I bought my first rubber stamp in 1998 when I was teaching at a boarding school in country Victoria - it was a teddy bear, and I mainly used it on students' work - you'd be amazed how much secondary school kids love getting a stamp when they get a good mark! I started making cards at about the same time, but did calligraphy cards, or dry embossing, or painting illuminated letters.
I've significantly increased my stash since then - and it's amazing how many products I have now that I just can't imagine crafting without - how did I cope without them!?!
