Hi there, I'm very excited to be here!! I am working on an art journal rather than a scrapbook, but it's still paper-art and what I've seen here in terms of the store and gallery makes me think this is the place to be.

This is my first post and I'm full of questions.

1. Can anyone recommend a really good white ink pad? I want something that is going to show up on very dark/black backgrounds. I bought one pad from Stampabilities and I'm glad I bought it on sale because... I get nothing from it. Maybe I'm not doing it right or maybe it isn't the right type of ink?

2. Can anyone recommend fine tip markers (fine enough to write small with) that can write on dark papers? I'm looking for white again. I've looked at packs of gel pens at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. Can't decide what to get without being able to test them if they're going to work.

3. Can anyone recommend a brand of black glitter glue? I want it to be actual glitter, not black paint with gold and iridescent flecks.

4. How do I stamp (especially letter stamps) without getting the edge of the stamp marking the page? I don't know if I'm inking the stamps wrong or putting them down on the page wrong - all I know is that it's an unhappy mess.

Thankyouthankyouthankyou to anyone who can help me with these questions! My budget is thinner than a shoestring, so I'd rather save up and buy a product that will definitely do the job than waste money buying stuff that doesn't quite hit the mark.
