"My son attends a nut-free school... But if I use this golden-pea butter called NO NUTS then I can still have the convenience and taste and protein without the worry of nut allergies! and since it looks the same as peanut butter, I need to let the teachers know it is safe to avoid confiscating my son's lunch! So by using my newly carved NO NUTS stamp with stazon ink on the ziplock baggy - then everyone is happy!" Alana Jean-Louis
"This is my very first hand-carved stamp that I made at Stampin' Up! Convention right after they unveiled the new UNDEFINED STAMP CARVING KIT! I chose to make a flag with the St. George's Cross... which represents England... which we use in a club called Knights of the Northern Realm (14th century living history club - see pics). Now when we hold a family festival I will use the stazon ink pad to stamp the hands of people to show they have paid for their tickets!" Alana Jean-Louis
Parmesan Crusted Chicken...with herb butter sauce. ~ Says: The chicken itself is fantastic, with its savory, cheesy breading, but the true star of this show is the sauce. With equal parts white wine, chicken broth, and heavy cream, the base of the sauce is full of flavor. Once the butter and fresh herbs are added in, though, ooooh myyyy. It is out of this world.
"I made this stamp as a gift for a very talented young musician! I will also give him a Stampin' Up! half-sized wood mount stamp box to keep the stamp and ink pad together at all times. TIP: carving letters are more advanced than carving images. Practicing on images first." Alana Jean-Louis
