To make this project you will need a photograph, a picture frame, a photo mat, a set of word stamps (in this case Big Mouth) and 2 or 3 inkpads.
To help you figure out how best to position the stamps on the photo mat, place several clean clear stamps along one edge. For example, for this project, Eileen (the freakishly Creative Director at Technique Tuesday) placed the "Simply the Best", "Dad", "Ever", and "You are Incredible" stamps along one edge to determine the stamps' positions. Once you've figured out a stamping plan, you can either mark the stamp positions using a pencil or just remember the stamp positions relative to the edge of the photo mat. You may also want to start by stamping on the back of the frame to make sure everything will really fit.
One of these picture frames will make a great gift for your husband, dad, grandfathers, uncles, a stepfather, or even big brothers. If you have children, each child can create their own picture frame. Or let each family member stamp one or two sides and sign their name next to their artwork. No matter how you do this project, the man who receives it will cherish this gift forever.

When Eileen went looking for a cube of sticky notes, she couldn't find any. Instead she bought a package of eight thinner stick notes and stacked them together to make a cube.
Start by removing the slick backing sheet on all but one of the pads. Then stick them together to make your own cube. You can use your ribbon (or masking tape) to provide extra stability. Lay the cube on its side so you can stamp straight down onto it and then flip it over to stamp the other open side. Move your ribbon (or masking tape) to expose the two un-stamped sides and finish stamping.
Eileen used the Grid Iron and Big Mouth stamp sets to make this sticky note stack. If you'd like to see a bigger picture of this project, click here.
Here are some other stamp sets that that you might want to use to make a gift to match the interests of a man in your life:
· construction or woodworker
· world traveler
· soccer fan
· Vegas enthusiast
· military man
· rocket scientist
· sports car lover, pilot, or heavy equipment operator
· zoo keeper
· or simply a man who is loved.
Dad's going to love it! Who else can you make one for?

Autism Speaks was our Tuesdays Child Foundation charity for 2007. We will be continuing to donate 50% of the proceeds to Autism Speaks from the sale of two of our products:
Pieces of the Puzzle Stamp Set
FUNdamental Pieces Technique Tiles
To Autism Speaks through the month of April 2008.
A note from our owner Bev Grey:
In 2007, our Tuesday’s Child efforts were focused on autism. I've seen our creative director, Eileen Collins, search for answers, challenge the status quo, and share quiet moments of joy with her son
who has autism. Through her, I learned that autism affects 1 in every 150 children. It is more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. There is no known cause or cure for autism. Based on these statistics and the impact that Eileen and her son have had on me, I decided to try to help change the future of children and families who are affected by autism by focusing our first Tuesday’s Child program on autism. Pieces of the Puzzle, and a set of 12x12-inch Technique Tiles called FUNdamental Pieces—in support of autism awareness. Although we designed these products to include some images and words associated with autism, these products were also intended to appeal to those who may not even know what autism is.
We asked our customers to join us in this fight by sharing their stories about how autism had impacted their lives, by supporting a friend who has a child with autism, by raising awareness in their communities, by donating directly to a charity of their choice, or by purchasing these two Technique Tuesday products. We have been thrilled with the response.
Numerous scrapbookers sent layouts to us that we highlighted during 2007 in a gallery on our website. People from all over the world called us, wrote email, and tracked us down at scrapbook conventions to tell us about how autism has touched their lives. A number of our wholesale customers had fund raisers in their stores or events to promote autism awareness. The response has been astounding. We are also thrilled that we were able to donate thousands of dollars to Autism Speaks so far and we’re not done yet. We will continue our commitment to this cause through April (Autism Awareness Month) 2008.
These new stamps were released a few weeks ago and should be arriving in your favorite store now!
We are SO-Eggsited about this little treasure. Perfect for capturing the joy of the Easter holiday at only $2.49 MSRP, this stamp set is sure to be a hip hoppity hit!
Most scrapbooker's and paper crafter's stories begin at home. Our new Home is Where Your Heart Is stamp set will help you celebrate your family, your stories, and your home.
Fresh off our victory for the best journaling tool in Creating Keepsakes Magazine’s Ultimate Product Guide, we’ve added another journaling stamp to our collection. Today is a great little journaling spot is the perfect addition for just a dab of details.
