Position it! Stamping

Several years back at Club Scrap retreat, Tricia introduced us to a stamping tool that until recently I forgot I had.  It's called the Position it! What I remember most about this tool was Tricia saying "Don't google Position it!  All kinds of websites pop up." So I was actually scared to google that when I rediscovered this tool.  I did find the directions and YouTube video instruction so I was relieved.  I forgot what an amazing tool this was and have been using it religiously to get my stamping straight. It does take some practice to get the hang of it and make it worth your while. I hate when I screw up the last bit of my card by stamping the sentiment crooked. Although this one has been discontinued, there are many similar ones out there. 
What I really loved about this tool was the ability to add straight borders with one small stamps or created circles, ovals and a patterns. The little sprig stamp from Crewel & Unusual got my attention and thought that would make a great wreath with a quote in the center.  

 Start by securing your panel to the Position It! base.
 Stamp your image on the clear plastic panel snug against the "L" shaped tool. 
 This will allow you to line up your image anywhere. 

 Place the clear plastic on your paper where you want your image.
Line up your black "L" shaped snug to the corner.
Remove plastic and stamp.
 Here I have one last image to stamp to complete my wreath. You can see the image on the plastic

Here is how the stamping block fits snugly in the "L". Of course you would remove the plastic before stamping final image.
 Completed wreath. 
 I added some flowers and colored with Copics.
I even stamped the quote on the clear plastic and lined it up so that I would get it centered.
Club Scrap papers, stamps, ribbon and wooden word. Queen & Co. pearls.

I wanted to let my wreath take center stage and speak for itself. I kept the background and embellishments simple.

The design was inspired by this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.



  1. I really need to dig out my Position Tool again. Love how you created this wreathe, so delicate! Beautiful card Lisa!

  2. I don't have a "position it", but I have a "stamp a ma jig" and I'll use it! 😂 (Spoof on a scene from "Shanghai Noon"...gosh that's a lot funnier if I say it out loud!)

    1. I actually snortled when I read that..I got it.

  3. Lisa that came out amazing. Was just talking about that tool the other day. Guess I should dig it out.

  4. Beautiful card! That's a neat tool! (I have a Stampamajig that I think does something similar though smaller.)
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

  5. I have never used that tool--ok, I have never used any positioning tool in my stamping! You have produced a lovely card with your results. Thank you for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Woven Strands blog hop! If you've arrived here from Lilian's Leaf Studio you are in the right place.   If you've happened upon the hop, please don't miss anything and start with Karen at Club Scrap. When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
