New Year... New Stamps!!

And not just a new year - its a new DECADE!!  Woohoo!!

Tonight over on the PaperArtsy blog is the release of new JOFY stamps!  Doing a happy dance as I love these!!  They make me smile and I hope they make you smile too, and inspire you to make lovely projects.


While on holiday recently I created several pages in my junk journal using the new stamps... here's a couple of them - you can see more over on the PaperArtsy blog.: 

Well if you're going to create a flower - create a REALLY big one - this one measures just under 11 inches!   - imagine doodling on all those black lines.. or paper piecing with different patterned papers!  So. Many. Options! 

Here's how the stencils looks when worked with a colour shaded background... lush!  This is going to to be a useful stencil for adding doodles onto around the edges of pages...

This is a journal page mock up - the black and white line images look great as a background element don't they!

Over on the PaperArtsy blog there are more ideas and 'guidelines' for the the petals on JOFY90 so pop over and take a look... when you've finished welcoming in the New Year of course!

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

Thanks for popping by.

Lets play a game....

... a game of 'Pairs'... JOFY stylee...

Pairs is a game we play with all the family, usually at christmas (as Monopoly was 'banned' many years ago lol) because all ages of the family can play.
So when I saw this in the Flying Tiger shop earlier this year I had to buy it - a lightbulb went on in my head:
... a box of blank memory cards (or Pairs as we call them) - I could make a set of JOFY Pairs!!!

And here they are:

All the cards are stamped with images from the JOFY range - part or complete, either from A5 sets or minis...  its taken a while to complete - I didn't rush it - I stamped pairs of cards when I happened to be using a suitable stamp.

And yet again I am thankful I have a stamping platform as this made the repetition of the images very easy:

I kept the images all black and white - it makes remembering where pairs are a little bit harder (no splashes of colour to jog the memory) and I also used similar images (such as the flowers on tiles in the photo above: centre/middle row and 4th from left/4th row)... I like to make the search a little bit challenging!  :o)

I love how these turned out - clean and simple - and I look forward to playing with them over the festive period!

Thanks for stopping by
