Craft Stamper – June 2014

Hey Guys, have you seen the latest Craft Stamper, June issue?

Ooo! I made some Father’s Day things for this month, check out the picture frame on the top left hand corner, that’s me! The magazine is full of amazing inspiration as always.

Now if you happen to be in the Crawley Hobbycraft on Saturday come and say hi and checkout the Fiskars Fuse too! If you can’t make it but want to see the Fuse in action then you can see all the demos going on over at the Fiskars News page.

Catch you later.



The New Issue Of Craft Stamper

Another magazine shout-out and today it is for the March Issue of Craft Stamper.

Have you seen the cute little cover stamp? Very sweet. So my offering this month is in the Around the House series and I’ve taken a teaspoon, some magazine pages and some chilli flakes and decorated a canvas with the help of the fab SCACD Susana Loves Stamps that you can find over at Quixotic Paperie for UK/EU or at SCACD for US/Canada.

Ok so catch you later and have a fun Sunday.

Love ya




Crackle, Crackle, Toil And More Crackle

Who has got the latest Craft Stamper?

And who likes Crackle?

ME! ME! ME! I hear you all cry!

Well that is lucky! The December issue of Craft Stamper has a compare and contrast crackle pastes, gels, and techniques masterclass from me ‘coz I am a complete crackle-head!

So if you are a crackle-head too then check it out and start crackling!

It’s got some old favourites such as the PVA Crackle technique and some new like the Kroma Crackle medium as well as the yummy cupcakes from Alice Palace Crafty Individuals collection and some frames made from cereal boxes and the Silhouette Cameo

Crackle on Artinators.



Another Magazine To Tempt The Creative Taste Buds…

Another magazine to keep an eye out for, the new Craft Stamper is out in the shops…

And the lovely Sarah Engels-Greer is the cover girl this month! She always makes beautiful stuff which you can see over at her blog La-De-Dah.

So I have some makes in this issue using an alcohol rub back technique you might want to play with.

BTW Craft Stamper have a DT call out if you are interested on getting your work published you should definitely check it out right away!

Catch you later.



Some Reading For The weekend

If you are on the look out for some new magazine inspiration then take a peak to Papercraft Essentials Issue 94.

My article this month is a Gesso masterclass and I’ve used Mona Lisa and Melle Papillon designed by Alex Smith for Penny Black because I just had too! – Kind of fell in love with them!

The new Craft Stamper is also out and I have a card in the Ready Steady Stamp section.

But if you are also looking for something to do this weekend then you might fancy checking out the new group Pinterest board I’ve started called Art & Craft Tutorial Favourites

As I said to folks on Facebook the idea is that it is a place to collect and share our favourite tutorials and workshops for papercrafts and mixed media. They can be tutorials or workshops you have tried or want to try, they can also be your own that you want to share, that is fine too! 

I’m hoping it will develop into a handy board to flick through if we are looking for some inspiration, a recommendation for something new or just to help inspire us out of a creative rut! What do you think? 

If you aren’t on Pinterest yet and want to join then this link should lead you there and straight to the new board to follow once you’ve signed up, well at least I think it should! If you are already on Pinterest then you will find the board here.

Are you interested in being a contributor to the board? If so drop me a line and I’ll link you up! It is open to all papercraft and mixed media enthusiasts.

Hope to see you there!

Have a fun weekend.
