The best part is that I have all these wonderful plans about making videos to share my planning ideas, my craft room a/k/a #craftcave and also to come up with new products for the shop! Additionally, I do have a dream planner all set-up and I will give you a peek here although, my Instagram feed has been blown with it. Here is my beauty for your enjoyment! I got her pre-loved and it was perfection. The only issue that I was aware of, was the fact that it was hot-stamped with the previous owner's initials. So here is my post about how to get rid of the Louis Vuitton stamp. Note: Please be warned that there are other methods that yield different results so please do your research and ask around. By no means a definite science but it is what worked for me.
Baby oil and a pointy pick, such as a toothpick.
Use the pick to dip a tiny drop of the oil and rub only the letters with the pick, avoiding the Louis Vuitton stamping below.
Outline the lettering with the toothpick one by one.
Continue gently picking on the ink, use the pick to gently (and patiently) lift the ink from the lettering.
Repeat as needed and notice that the deep dent, from the hot-stamping, will remain visible and the method used, will only work to remove the ink from the lettering.
As you can see this is a process that requires a little bit of patience and a lot more of time. So from the before and after pictures, you can see that the hot-stamping still shows but the removal is doable with some minimal effort to accomplish.
Also, so excited to share two super cool products from the shop! They are up for grabs now. The gold foiled labels have been a hit and I can't wait to see them all over those tab dividers of yours. They were created with lots love in mind. Hope you love them, too!! The other product is a set of Happy Cards printed in marble. Three cards to decorate the front pocket or the dashboard of your planner. You can check them out here.
Please share any other ideas or thoughts on the whole hot-stamping removal thing. In the meantime, I am retrieving to work on new posts and planning ideas. Hope you enjoyed this post.
