Ahoy there.....

Have you seen this month's Craft Stamper? TONS of fabulous and inspirational projects in there to whet your appetite this month and the freebie stamp is a Paper Artsy seasonal pointsettia!! Nice one! And I'm so chuffed to have an article of my own in there this month! As well as a couple of projects with the free stamp I have written a piece about the Imagepac Stamp Making kit and shown a couple of examples of the stamps I have made with it. I frequently show things I've made with my own stamps on this blog but I wanted to do the article to show how really, really easy it is to make your own so I hope it inspires others to have a go. For obvious reasons I can't show the samples that are in the mag, but one of my cards didn't make it because of copyright issues. I wanted to show an image that I had scanned and made a stamp from but as the image came from a badge I rescued from my son's birthday card, they weren't able to show it. However, I wouldn't be making any profit from it by showing it on here so here goes:

and here's a close up on his fab gold tooth:

This was done by adding a quickie glue pen and some gold foil - it's so simple but really effective!

Well if you're reading this then I'd like to express big thanks to you for popping in. Have a great week ahead! xx
