More Hand Carved Journaling Stamps in Stock

I've been a mad stamp carver lately, trying to get my little Etsy shop, Hand & Soul Studios, restocked with some more of my hand carved journaling stamps.  These stamps have been a labor of love...a bit of labor and a whole lotta love as I adore how these stamps look in my journal!  They are perfectly imperfect.  I have tried to make them work together as a cohesive set and I've had a lot of fun doodling in my sketchbook, developing new designs. 
This time around, I added a set of alphabet stamps, a fancy marquee frame, and a set of frame stamps that can be used for page titles or small bits of journaling.  

I'm trying to come up with a name for this line of stamps and so far I'm striking out...anybody have any ideas?  My secret working title was "Vintage Smintage" since these were born following a particularly annoying online session searching for reasonably priced vintage labels to use in my journals.  However, I don't really want to slam anybody that collects and uses vintage ephemera in their art.  This is just an alternative...if you brainstorm any good names, let me know in the comments...


  1. I can see I have been away for far too long Michelle! Wow, you are on fire, and my jaw is dropping on the floor! I wish I had half the energy and talent you do!
    Love the new blog look, and I will be spending some time trying to carch up.

  2. "Vintage Alternatives" came to mind. OMG! Your stamps are just amazing, Michelle!!! When I opened my number stamps, I was over the moon -- all so tiny and painstakingly perfect. Just got your new "Care Guide" too! Thanks again. I hope you have another sell out!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  3. Amazing Schmazing! HA HA! Your stamps are incredible. I have to go and look in my piggy bank. Donna

  4. I just took a look around your Etsy shop, Michelle, and I love your alphabet stamps and your label stamps. Your prices are very reasonable for such a great set of stamps that I know must have been A LOT of work. I, too, will be checking my piggy bank...
