Way back in the late 1980's when I really dove head first into stamping there was a real dearth of supplies to be had. Non - cute images were rare and hard to come by, finding fonts in rubber were just about impossible!

My first computer which was loaded with 240 megs of hard drive space and 36 megs of ram, since then my machines and skills have evolved with the ever changing technologies.

With the invention of the internet the word 'Free' was re-invented. I used to pay for fonts, even using Share ware they weren't cheap! Now fonts are free by the droves!!
Scrapbooking papers and supplies also made a night in day difference in our stampy world!
Exotic papers had to be purchased in exotic places, now all we need to do is be site savvy!
Personally I love it!!
Today I thought I share a few links with my readers of a few places to get quality items at no cost.
