    That's seriously a lot of stamps. I think you can now also order them custom made on the internet, although I can't find where I saw that anymore...

    Handy, cutting off those edges, Els.

    What a nice collection! I have quite a few, but hardly use them. I used them again for the Instaswap, so much fun!

    Those are some nice stamps girl.

  5. I love stamps…
    especially with lyrics…
    What beautiful stamps you have there...

    I need to sort out what I need, I have too many and don't use a large part enough

  6. What a nice collection of stamps you have! We especially like the one with the different types of greetings. 🙂

  7. Love those stamps! I bought some once but it didn't turn out nice at all! They were from Hema. Then I lost a bit of my confidence in the Hema stamps.

    I love stamps and have quite a collection now. Bigger than your collection, although you have quite a few too. Super fun to decorate your mail or gifts with. I think cutting off the edges is a good tip. Haven't thought about that yet. I usually wipe them clean with a cloth or cotton swab.

      Even more :-)? Wow! I also did the first thing with a cloth, but I thought cutting it away would get rid of it immediately :-).

        Yes, you thought that really cleverly! I'll take a picture of my stamps, nice idea. I recently bought something at some kind of girls' fair. Someone there also made their own stamps and you could have name stamps made. So it was done immediately of course. Also made of eraser.

        I have the most special one from Vietnam. I had them made there too, but that boy cut it from wood. Super detailed. You have to press very hard (because eraser or something else soft stamps easier). But I had an ex libris made with my name in it, a Star Wars stamp for my husband, a Cat Woman for myself and some other ex libris stamps as souvenirs. They are really special and unique. You can see one photo of those Vietnamese stamps on our IG account (beineffable).

        I think stamps (and wax seals) are fantastic. But I think the Xenos are of inferior quality, actually. I also have the one with kisses. I find it less beautiful.

    Ahh super nice! I like stamps so much, because you can always put them to good use:-)

    I know where to go when I need a stamp!?

    Your great love stamps. 🙂 How nice. I like the various stamps with the girl the best. I used to use it, but I haven't used it for a long time. If you do a lot of creativity and crafts then this is very useful of course. You give useful tips about the stamp pad, dirty edges and how to make the stamps yourself.

    It's been a long time since I've stamped, I think it was the last time with my daughter, but I still have an ink pad I think, I think it must have dried up by now, hahahaha

    I used to also like stamping, but that was just a quick way to decorate something, big steps, a quick home idea, hahaha

  13. What a lot you have!
    I also have the Lots of Love and Kisses stamps from the Xenos. They are on the shelf in my bedroom as decoration, because I love them so much.

    My stamps mainly come from HEMA, I just don't use them enough, I must say!

  15. Nice! I especially like the Jip&Janneke stamps!

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
