Hello I’m Anat and I’m addicted to Stamps!
I entered to the Scrapbooking world a year and a half ago but my love to stamps began earlier as a Cake designer. I use them in my cake as well.
I create mostly mixed media and Mini Albums projects and I use stamps in the backgrounds, as an embellishment and focal point.
Hope you like my projects and find it inspiring. Xoxo
