My Stamps Are Here!!!!!!




Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is okay out there,

The day has come at long last when I can finally let the cat out of the bag.....I've designed some stamps!!

The wonderful Laura and Graham at That's Crafty! liked my designs enough to have stamps made from them, how wonderful is that?!

I've designed them so that when they're stamped they look exactly like they've been hand drawn and they are the most stunning quality of course.
I like to call them 'acceptably quirky'.....what I mean by that is they won't scare your Grandma if you send her a card with them on!!

Here they are in case you want to buy them That's Crafty! Clear stamps which I hope you do ;)

There are 4 stamp sets called the Serenity Collection:

Then there are the Quirky Girls Collection:

For the whole of this week my lovely and talented teamies will be show casing their creations using a mixture of these stamps at That's Crafty! team blog and I'll probably be around at some point again with at least one too ;)

Now because I'm sooooo happy about this, I want you all to be happy too so I'm giving away the 3 sets of stamps below:

I'm going to draw 3 winners in 3 weeks time on the 3 October and here's what you have to do to be in a with chance of winning (it's the usual stuff really)

1) Please leave a comment below to let me know you're interested. 
2) Make sure you're a follower of my blog 
3) This is open to wherever you are in the world 
2) I would be grateful if you could spread the word about the stamps on your blogs, Facebook etc
3) Pop back here if you're one of the winners and let me see what you've made...thats the most important thing.

I really hope you all like my That's Crafty! stamps. I haven't stopped using them for about a month now and really enjoy using them in soooo many different ways on tags, cards. journals etc, they are so versatile.

I'm really excited to see what you all make with them, at the end of the day that's what they were designed for ;)

So we'd love to see anything glittery and sparkly.....come on you know you want a good excuse for getting the bling out!

I made a tag for this using stickles and the most lush iridescent Pebeo paint, unfortunately you can't really see the contrast on the picture but it turns from green to blue depending on the angle.

Meet Penny

Hi everyone,

I've made a card using my girl called Penny.....she's the 'posh' one as you can see! She likes to channel a little bit of her inner Audrey Hepburn every now and then ;)

I popped down to Ally Pally on Saturday 17th Sep for the craft show and mainly hung around the That's Crafty! stand of course with a little bit of Paperartsy thrown in. It was such a thrill to see so many lovely ladies clutching my stamps in their hands, can't wait to see what they make with them!

I met so many people I'd not met before like Brenda Brown and Chris from pear shaped crafting who were both lovely and Nikki Acton who I'd already met before who is of course equally lovely too :) 

I watched some of my very talented teamies from That's Crafty doing makes and takes and demoing up a storm including Lauren and Alison....wished I could've stayed all day and learnt new stuff!

Here's some pictures from the day for you.

That's Crafty! challenge - Christmas in September

Hi everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at That's Crafty! challenge blog and this fortnight's theme is: Christmas in September. So we'd love to see everything Christmassy really, trees, snowmen, poinsettias etc.

Play along and you could be in with a chance of winning this

so you could treat yourself to my new stamps if you win .....just saying ;)

I'll be honest here, making Christmas stuff now I wasn't keen on BUT think about it this way, if you make something now that'll be one less thing to make in a panic later on in the year!!

I made a card using the little house that hangs from my quirky girl's Beki hair, perfect size to fit 3 in the snow globe.

That's Crafty! clear stamp set, That's Crafty! snowflake Dinky stencil, Indigo Blu stamps, Distress Inks, Zig Clean Colour pens, White Puff paint.

Hope you like it
