Paper Piecing

I really like paper piecing now that I got my scissors sharp.  I love the Hero Arts butterflies because they lend themselves to the paper piecing.

I love the hero arts stamps because they have the stamped image on the backside of the stamp.  It makes it easier to stampDSC01583 Backside of the StampDSC01584 Stamp
