* * Happy 10th Birthday PaperArtsy! * *
As I said over on the PaperArtsy blog: 10 YEARS!! oh my, that is a long time to have fun and be encouraged down a creative path... which is what PaperArtsy does.... and if they think I'm a 'tad loopy' (see the post on the PA blog) I learned it all from them - its brushed off! :o)
I don't live far from PaperArtsy - I 'pop' over to do stuff - & when hubby hears that in the morning he knows he has to get his own dinner! lol PA HQ is like a vortex - one filled with crafty wonderness - like a craft version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.. but sadly without the umpalumpas... well, there are Elves but they're not the same (or orange, even if they do live in Brentwood..lol)
So, I've been
First came the Stamps:
These images were (still are) some of my favourites.. Petals from the Ink & the Dog Collection
LOVE this little book in a tin.. its about 10x10cm but approximately 1m long..
As part of the original Design Team it was always fun to create different items... anyone fancy a game of dominoes?:
Squiggly Ink - cute hand drawn images - I was a big fan of the winged images. Stamp sets from the Squiggly Ink 'Tops & Tails' & 'Swirls&Curls' Collection
(using HP1005, HPxmas01)
And then came FRESCO FINISH!!!! I feel that there should've been a fanfare or drumroll there.. lol
JOFY stamps!! :o)
... I was so pleased when PaperArtsy asked me to design stamps for them - I love designing the stamps and seeing what people create with them - amazes me what people can do! I never thought 10 years ago that I would one day be designing stamps for them - couldn't be happier! THANK YOU MR & MRS PA!!
So I think that brings my brief stroll down memory lane to an end - I hope you've enjoyed seeing a few of my favourite projects - and if any of its inspired you to get creating 'stuff' then I'm pleased.
One last thing. Here is my 'Birthday Project' - all the details and instructions can be found HERE on the PA blog.
That was the last 10 years of PaperArtsy - thanks for the inspiration, the fab products and the fun Mr & Mrs PA - its been a blast - looking forward to the NEXT 10 years!
Thanks for bearing with me on this long blog - makes up the fact I haven't blogged for 10 days!.. hopefully :o)
(not that I've been slacking ... secret stuff in the pipeline....)
