First, the bad news about these projects from the Personal Stamp Exchange (PSX): this company has gone out of business, and all of the projects in this book involve PSX rubber stamps, many of them quite ornate. (Check out [...] for a list of other rubber stamp companies that no longer exist.)The good news is that some PSX stamps are available on internet auction sites such as eBay, although you'll have to pay a premium for the rarer issues. I was able to outbid the competition for `G1533 Baby Moon' but the elaborate botanical stamps are usually out of my reach.This book contains lovely color photos of the stamping projects, plus a chapter on `Basic Supplies & Tools.' It did make me a bit nervous to see a photograph of a toaster oven, light bulb, and electric stovetop burner under `Embossing Heat Sources.' I can't quite imagine how a crafter could keep the embossing powder on a paper surface, while heating it over a stovetop burner. Also, how does one keep the paper from catching fire?The stamping projects are divided into twelve categories by month: January - Everyday; February - Valentine's Day; March - Birthday; April - Easter; May - Mother's Day; June - Father's Day; July - Housewarming; August - Garden Party; September - Baby; October - Halloween; November - Thanksgiving; and December - Christmas and Hanukkah.
