B-Line Designs - Gettin' Shabby!



I ADORE B-Line Designs stamps.  They are some of the most wonderful vintage stamps I have ever seen!  Unfortunately they do not have an online store, so you have to find somewhere that sells them online, or get your local store to order them.  I think she attends stamp shows as well.  The only online store I"m aware of that sells them is StampDiva.com.  If you know of somewhere, let me know.  My local store is 50 min. away so ordering more from them would be a little out of my way.  Luckily I have a stash of them.  A stamp store in Jacksonville, FL carries them so when we lived there I purchased a few.

The dog / sentiment above and bears / sentiment below are available on page 5 of their "Pick Me Up" catalog (just in case you want to get them ordered in)



You can view all of their catalogs at their web site HERE.  They are a little slow to download, but worth the wait.

Great cards, but I have to admitt that the first one became my favorite. I like you, really fancy B- line, but don`t have to many stamps from them.
