Branching Out



Its that time again - the new and improved smooth feely copy of Craft Stamper will now be on the shelves.

This month I have a very cheap masking technique published...

Here's what triggered the initial inspiration for the three pieces I put together for this months article- Dave trimming the hedge at the side of the house.



And here are a couple of sneak peeks at the background and ideas that developed from that.



and another simple card...



Thankyou to those who already very kindly left me comments mentioning how much they liked the look of the article on yesterdays post. It's always great to hear feedback on any of the work I get published for Craft Stamper, especially as its magazine policy that we're unable to show any of the work fully on our blogs.

The plate of stamps used is by Innovative Stamp Creations and is available in the UK from Scrapz.

I try and submit varied articles; some quick makes, some more detailed, in the hope that many of the readers will see something they like or adapt to suit at some point. If you manage to get hold of a copy I hope that you enjoy the read .

Don't forget, its Day TWO of PaperArtsy's 12 Days of Christmas. Today features the newest member of the PaperArtsy design team, my friend Joanne Wardle and also featuring Leandras 'partner in crime' for craft weekends, Lin Brown from LB Crafts.

I have been out and cut some sprigs from our conifer hedge - and few other bits to experiment with.
