I love me a good date stamp, I have a large collection of them – I can’t resist. For me the date is one of the essential page elements because the entire first year I was scrapbooking I probably only dated about two dozen pages (out of 300 or so) and when I printed them and went to put them in an album it took me forever to get them into any sort of chronological order. In 2008 I was only slightly better, I probably dated about half of my pages. Last year I think I managed to get a date on the vast majority (however I scrapped much less last year so that’s not saying a whole lot).
I created Modern Dates because I wanted a set of clean, unfussy dates for my pages this year. The set includes the two sets of year stamps (rectangular and round) and then the months and days of the month (solid and striped sets) are separate files. Oh, and I threw in a “week” stamp (instead of the months) for use on P365, P52, New52, Year of Weekends, etc pages – because sometimes I need that, too. So you can swap all the bits and pieces out, color them how you want them and create the perfect, unobtrusive, easily readable date stamp for your pages. They’re 20% off through Sunday, 1/30, and 100% full of happy.
The Flock just never ceases to amaze me – they’re date stamp junkies like me and really taught me a lesson on how to use these suckers. Like I thought I knew how to use a date stamp, but now I’m filled with self-doubt. Take some time to take a spin through these pages (you can click on any one of them to bring up a larger viewing window) because these girls can generate some serious eye candy.
