A few pieces...



Here are a few sneak peeks that I managed to put together a few months ago(end of the summertime hence the colours I guess) for Crafty Individuals and Happy Daze to appear in the current Craft Stamper during a time when things had turned upside down a little at home (more on that this coming week when I find the right moment).

I'm not able to show the entire image due to regulations at Traplet but hopefully you get the feel of whats what.

These two pieces (above and below)appear in the Stamping Contrast article for Crafty Individuals in the UK.



This piece below appears in the Idea Gallery where the theme Recycled was given. I used an old tag and an old brown envelope (brown paper) to form the base for this piece using a selection of stamps from my collection at Stampotique and one from Lost Coast, all which are available from Happy Daze, also here in the UK.



This issue of Craft Stamper is available from Craft Stamper, Crafty Individuals and Happy Daze.



This months has a very wide range of styles and is full of inspiration...seriously worth getting!

Have a good weekend xx

I'm looking forward to getting this issue, I love recycled/upcycled stuff.

I haven't bought it for a couple of months because I'm not big on Christmas, but now it's safe to buy again :)

hope you are ok x

Wonderful samples! I love the colour palette, and it is quite nice to see non-Christmas posts. Thanks! I will stalk the local bookstore looking for that issue of Craft Stamper. We usually get them about a month to six weeks after they come out in the UK. I think they send them over in corked bottles.

I managed to pick up my copy today and loved your pieces, Jo. It was so nice to see something summery on this cold winter day.

Must get around to decorating my little box frame thing. lol
