Boo! or should I say 'ho ho ho'!!


There are so many holidays covered in this release of JOFY stamps over on the PaperArtsy Blog today!

There's halloween.....

These versions of Dolly and Little Dude made me smile when I doodled them a while ago and they still do - and now they're stamps I hope you have fun with them!

Any excuse for bunting, and halloween is no exception:

I recently used the Valentine stamp set on the card I made for my husband for our wedding anniversary... its 6x44cm in size and I really like how the phrase can be used to repeat along the bottom and how the heart stamps sits nicely among the surrounding die cuts.... this stamp could also be used to repeat around the edges of a card in the same way.

As always there are more projects with these new stamps sets over on the PaperArtsy blog tonight and tomorrow so head on over THERE.

I hope you enjoy the stamps.

Workshop: Nature Blocks....


Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you've been keeping well.

I've updated my teaching page and I wanted to let you know about a workshop I'm running this Saturday (14th September 2019) at The Artistic Stamper, Faversham, Kent.
This is the Nature Blocks workshop - its a gorgeous project of 3 wood blocks decorated with the latest release of JOFY stamps (you can see them HERE ) and we'll be working on all four sides of each block so you can move them around and rearrange them to your hearts content - there's never a wrong side!

What nicer way to spend the day?! 3 pieces of wood, your chosen colours, JOFY stamps and stencils (bit of Kay Carley in there too), PaperArtsy paints, tips and techniques on how to get the lovely (and surprisingly easy) ombre paint effect shown in the photo above, lovely lunch provided by Jennie (owner of The Artistic Stamper), good company of fellow crafters.... all resulting in a lovely project! (the project would/could also be a lovely present for the gardener in your life! (should I mention that, ahem, Christmas is only 106 days away)(no? is it too soon to talk Christmas?  oops)

That sounds to me like a day well spent!

If you'd like to join me in this workshop the deadline for signing up is Tuesday evening.. so don't delay.

To book a place go to www.theartsiticstamper.com or call the shop on 01795 597757.

Look forward to seeing you!!
