I've had readers ask if I eyeball stamp placement or have a strategy for getting things in the right place. The answer is simple: gridded acrylic blocks and a practiced eye. I use the grids on acrylic blocks religiously, especially for sentiments (which I generally pre-stamp on the edges of scrap paper to verify the straightness thereof), but sometimes, with clear image stamps, I just eyeball it.
The problem is, you rarely see my crooked efforts because I don't post them. So, for the record...I stamp crookedly sometimes, even when I'm extra careful and using a gridded block or stamp positioner. And I don't generally get upset about it. I am human, not a machine, and I make mistakes. It's only paper.
It's only paper.
And now for a butterfly grid that happened because I have a gridded acrylic block and am not afraid to use it.
Oh, yeah. LOVE the fact that Memento now has three graduated shades of orange--light, medium, and dark. I wish they did that for all the colors.
