It certainly changed my scrapbooking style! I saw this in Ali Edwards' book Life Artist. I was so taken by the stamp that I put the book down and immediately placed an order for it. Now that it's in my croproom, all I want to do is stamp my belongings with it, marking them as mine forever! Even my husband liked it, and he rarely offers an opinion about any tool I buy. It took some practice to get a stamped image that wasn't smeared or blurry. Right now, it's my new favorite thing and made me order more 7-Gypsies stamps. My next purchase will be for more inkpads, in all the colors. That's right! You're not just stuck with basic black! You can clean the stamp and swap out inkpads. I'm loving this and If I had a bazillion dollars, I think one of these would go in every scrapbookers stocking this year (2007).
