I got my order today from the UPS guy it was sitting by my door when I got home. The package was a little bit damages on the corner edge of the package. I assume they don't take good care of their shippment. But it all good my stuff is in good order I didn't think the clear block would be so big I order the 6x6 I think it was. But can use it on bigger stampes when i use my Tim Holtz roadtrip tire track. I bought some extra stampes from JoAnne and another smaller clear block and some Memento tuxedo black Ink to go with my Ranger Archivel balck Ink that came with my order. I also bought this stamp pad I saw at Jo Anns today. I guess it helps to provide pressure to provide "the best ink impressions". So, do any of you have it, does it work good? It called: "Rubber Stamp Pad". Well, hope you are having a good day?

SB.com takes a lot of care with packaging, but things can get damaged by UPS. If you ever receive damaged items, contact sb.com customer service, they are excellent. Now go play and make stuff!

I'll just going to watch a few more videos on stamping. Yeah they wrap stuff in brown paper which is nice.

I'm always amazed at the care sb.com takes with their packaging. Now J's...that's a different matter. It usually seems like they throw a paperstack in at the last minute and usually one that looks like it was a returned item, with torn/bent corners. In fact, I'll often get notice that my order is coming in two shipments, then it comes in one and the small order is what's tossed in at the top.

Shipping companies are also another matter. I've had whole sides caved in or ripped, but I've never had anything damaged. Pretty amazing!

Have fun learning to stamp. I've only done it a little bit. I enjoy it when I do it, but there are just too many toys to play with and I forget to use them all. I need a big toybox open right at my feet so I can see what all I have...but those little stamps would fall to the bottom and never get used :>( ~Judy

Enjoy your new stuff! I just got an order from here this week too and was so impressed by the care they took in packaging the paper!

I ordered a bunch of individual sheets of paper from sb.com and was very impressed with the shipping.
As for J's the local store near me doesn't take care of their paper packs there all damaged, bent, or ripped. So it's no surprise that your paper wasn't delivered in good condition.

Thanks yeah I am enjoying my new stamps for sure. Already "broke them in" I just have to get started with my ablums... But it hard to think of what I want to do with each lo's I printed out some tags with writting on it for the heritage album. I guess I should just start working on one to see how it turns out, lol.

Sometimes the only way to get it done is to just start working on it and see if you like it or not. I never stick anything down permanetly until I am sure I am going to like what I am doing. Even with the stamps I will stamp it on a scrap piece of paper and place that on my layout to see if I will like it. Have fun playing with your stamps.

Yeah agree with you about just getting started with it. I know how I want it to look. I am going to start with all the families last name as a title page. The turn the page and it has the pictures and information. I am going to leave the title page blank. Unitl I get the cameo cutting machine. Which I plan to get this month. I want to use some of the fonts I have on my computer.

I use the stamps on my skectes paper just torn two out and started to stamp a couple. I decided to keep them I put the name of the stamps and the date I stamped the stamps and after I knew it was dry then put it back in my sketches book. I am a serious pack rat when it comes to my artwork. I should either sell some of it. I know some I'll throw out because most of it is from my college days. But thinking I might just redo some of them to make them "better". Hope you ladies and guys are having a good weekend?

Just adding that my UPS box was badly damaged this time as well...SO thankful that scrapbook.com packages everything so well or I'm certain I'd have had some damamged merchandise.

I rarely stamp on layouts but I love using stamps for cards. Enjoy your new stuff!

I stamp a lot when making cards, sometimes there is a little learning curve but overall I really enjoy it. I also heat emboss quite alot of my images, it really helps if I want to add color to the images. Enjoy your goodies!

UPS delivers damaged packages to us so frequently that DH and I have a running joke about the elephant that works for them and is required to sit on all packages -- They just pay him peanuts. All of my orders from SB, however, have always come through in good shape. I guess they know about the elephant.

The Zappos packages are the worst that I receive - but the shoe-box contained within is never damaged.

haha...it did look like an elephant might have stepped on my package. Strange how I rarely get a damaged package from the usps...but often from UPS...I guess you're right---it's gotta be the elephant lol.

just a little on shipping companies: for the most part, they aren't real easy on packages. they do go through machines, on belts and the like, but the guys toss them around like basketballs if they don't say fragile on them.... how did i come to know this? last year my husband worked as a seasonal helper with the ups. i couldn't believe how rough some of the guys were with packages... it just was CRAZY...

That is not nice for the money that you pay to send packages with this company!

yes, i know. he's not working for them this year and part of the reason is that and then the other part is because they pay cr@p for a multi million dollar corporation!

Every SB.com package that I have ever received was pretty damaged and even looked like someone thought about openning it! Luckily, the product inside was completely okey.

I have to say that SB.com does do a great packaging. I don't know if its the amount of paper that I order or its standard practice but I love that they shrink wrap it. It has saved my paper on so many occasions when boxes have had damaged corners.

Me too! I haven't gotten many packages soon. Expecting 2 packages of papers and die cuts. Seems I ordered something else too - I know, just remembered... some overlays.

Seems I ordered something else on AMazon or ebay - guess I will just be surprised when it gets here.
