Fun Stampers Journey is a direct sales company that sells a LOT of stamps, dies and other fun products. Being much more of a scrapbooker than stamper, FSJ really wasn’t on my crafty radar until I learned that the Punches that FSJ sells fit in the Creative Memories Shape Maker System. This system (FSJ sells the system, too) is a favorite tool of mine and is being sold only while supplies last by CM. CM only offers 2 additional cartridges for the system, too so I was thrilled when I found out FSJ has many more options for this great tool!! (Read more about FSJ Punches in the CM Shape Maker System in this blog post.)
I also fell in love with FSJs cardstock. It’s more like the “old” CMs cardstock than that from the New CM. It’s acid free, lignin free & buffered and comes in a lot of colors. Plus, the weight is consistent across the board, unlike new CM where there is a noticeable difference (all within the companies acceptable tolerance level) between some of the cardstock packs.
Look at all these colors!!!
Those two product lines alone pushed me over the edge and long story short…I’m a Fun Stampers Journey Coach.
FSJ offers many coordinating die/stamp sets. I used one (called Sea Friends) on the layout below. Almost done - just need to do a little bit of journaling.
Right hand side of the layout. The seaweed, starfish & crab were first stamped and then die cut using the Journey Grand die cutting/embossing machine.
Left hand side of the layout - I started with Beech Breeze cardstock and stamped a random pattern with the Sea Friends stamps using Beech Breeze Color Fusion ink. I LOVE how the same colors carry over through the various products in the FSJ line. That fun Mermaid and the star/bubble stamp was a past Bloom Benefit – you get one Bloom Benefit for every $50 spent on FSJ product!
Added a little dimension with Small FSJ Foam Squares.
This is one thing I LOVE about stamping backgrounds – the 2 pieces of background paper look like they were made for each other. They were! I just lined them up and stamped where both pieces met.
The "stitches" on the baseball in the layout below were made with the FSJ Chevron Trends punch (TO-0002) which sells for $11.96. This punch (and all those from FSJ) works with both the FSJ punch Handle Punch Handle (TO-0031 which sells for $10.36) and the CM Shape Maker System.
