I bought this date stamp kit years ago. It is one of my oldest purches that I still have and use.
The little pieces can be annoying. I use it frequently. I have never cleaned my stamp pieces.....
I *had* to have this a few years ago and now it's collecting dust in my scrap drawer. This is nothing more than a fancy date stamp that sits on a magnetic block. You have to separate all the rubber stamps (they're very tiny) when you first open the package. When you're ready to stamp you line up your tiny stamps on the magnetic block in reverse order and stamp your project. If you're lucky you won't get ink on the edge of the stamp and ruin your image. IMO if you want to stamp a date on your layout, you can pick up a regular date stamp from any office supply store for a third of the cost of this one. Granted you won't get the months spelled out, seasons or holiday words. Despite that luxury, mine stays in the drawer and I journal the date by hand. It's easier than setting this up and cleaning it when I'm done.
Well, I have this...one of my first purchases, but I have only used it about 3 times. Its in a drawer and honestly I forget to get it out to use it. I'm sure if I had all my supplies organized that I would remember to use it. It fits your date in smaller spaces and gives a neat look to the page.
