Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge #14-6

February 11, 2014

Weekly Challenge - Anything goes with a writing instrument.

In this day and age of everything electronic, I've noticed that I've forgotten how to write.  I've recently signed up to be a pen pal and I went to write my first letter and was completely amazed at the writing on the page.  Talk about atrocious.  When my co-workers have given me grief about my handwriting in the past, I've just blown it off as they can't read Tammy Hieroglyphics, but maybe they were right.  So this being a pen pal will make me practice my penmanship and make my slow down and think about what I'm putting on paper.  With all that being said.  

Paper Smooches had this awesome stamp set called Just a Note.  I couldn't wait to use it.  Then there's the Maggie Holmes paper collection.  It makes me think dreamy and whimsical. 

Using these two things the Orange Cuttin' and Stampin' design team has come up with some great inspiration projects for you to check out.

We hope the team has inspired you to create something with a writing instrument.  You have until February 17th to enter your creations below.


  1. Hi Cathy,
    Most pen pals type their letters these days, I have only 1 that I hand write to. She has learned how to read my mess pretty well and the only reason I don't type to her is she insists that she has no problems reading my mess. It is good to see someone joining the snail mail community, personal letter writing is becoming a thing of the past.

  2. We have our first entry, and a wonderful entry it is.Write On! I took calligraphy class before my daughter was born, over 22 yrs ago. First learned with a calligraphy pen & India ink that you dip the pen's nib into. Then I transitioned to a fountain pen with ink cartridges and has nibs that you can change out. My daughter gave me a wonderful Sheaffer calligraphy pen for a birthday present a couple yrs ago that is my fav to use.
