I was hoping somebody would have an answer for this question. I stamp a lot, and have for quite a while, and I've never found anything that will remove in boo boos from paper or cardstock.

I try chalk first and see if I can cover the error. If that does not work, you can try scratching the ink off. If it's a small mistake sometimes this works with out damaging it too much.
And If it's on white paper, I use whiteout.

Go digital, then press the undo button?

If not digital, then you just have to consider them opportunities to embellish!

Yep, cover it with ribbon or a flower, or (if you messed up stamping) re-stamp the image on another piece of paper and cover up the original location, or rotate the paper so the ink is in a place that will now be covered by your original layout plan, or change your layout plan to move a photo or journaling box to that location, or turn it over (if it's solid cardstock), or see if you can use even more ink to alter the paper and lose the mistake in the rest of the ink.

I've seen Jennifer McGuire lightly scrape it with exacto till it comes off.

Carolyn - I found a Photoshop expert, actually private tutor and she is a scrapbooker and has helped create scrapbooking packages! She's worked with scrapbooking magazines too so she will be the perfect person to teach me to scrap using photoshop.

However, will still do paper and trimmer layouts when I'm home but I see a world of possibilities for digi when we are travelling!

I recently dropped my juicey Fine detail stamp pad on my photos and paper. I tried to be awesomely creative and repeat this action to balance it out.... did not work......

I ended up redesigning the layout to cover the ink mishaps. In general, I have found that when I drop the ink pad, I either can make it a creative inspiration, Start over, or cover it up.......

Since I don't do digi, don't like digi, and am not planning to transition to digi, I either have to figure a way to work the booboo into my design, cover with an embellie if I can, or start over, lol.

If only there was a product like correction tape or a bleachy type of eraser as there is for blue ink. But there isn't, unfortunately. I usually either cover up mess-ups or re-do it.

I've made mistakes on hand-written journalling before. I've written the correct word onto a contrasting piece of card-stock (in upper case and with a nice outline around it) and stuck it over the top. If you add a few more over key words, it will look as if you intended to do that all along.

if would really help if we knew the extent of the problem.
A few stray dots of ink sometimes you can
- scratch it off with an exacto knife
- cover with it chalk, opaque marker, paint, or white out
- make a little embellishment or patch to cover it (I have split card stock into a thin layer and glued it on top of errors)

larger problem, say you misspelled something
- can work a embellishment or patch into the design
- can redo the area with the mistake
- scan the original (or photograph it), correct the mistake in Photoshop, print it out on matte paper, work it in over your error

and I can't say it enough, I use A LOT of chalk and q-tips to cover up errors. The great thing about it is if you don't like to way it came out you can just use an eraser, erase it and start again.
