Vintage downloads

I love this pretty card reader Anesha Marshall sent to me which she created with one of our free vintage downloads (check out this section of the website to get hold of yours).

This download of the girl with flowers is using a postcard from my own personal collection which I think is so pretty. Thank you for sharing Anesha!

Stamper of the Year - yay!

Just a reminder that we launched our Stamper of the Year competition in the September issue of the magazine. This was such a huge success last year, I really hope you will consider entering. We have made things easier this year too - you can make your initial entry via email rather than sending creation into us, and we will only ask for actual artwork if you are shortlisted. So you've nothing to lose really!

There is a fabulous prize on offer provided by lots of our supporters. They have been so generous this year with their donations and I'd like to say a big thank you to all of them. Their details are listed on the website and in the magazine.

Send your entry today and you never know, you could end up as a regular on the CS team like our winner from last year, Kate Bentley. I really loved judging this last year and I really look forward to seeing what you create :).

More details are on the Craft Stamper website.

House and tree stamp

Thought you might like to see this gorgeous card that Sue Wherry (designer of the house and tree cover stamp on this month's issue) sent to me on email. I love the stained glass windonw effect and the 1930s feel of this card. Sue has used the same Fancy Pants papers as you saw in the magazine article.

Have you made anything with the house stamp? Please do leave a link in the comments and share your creations.

All the best,

It's out on Friday!

New mag hits the shelves on Friday. Hope you'll enjoy it. There is a bit of an international theme this issue, with projects inspired by Morocco, Japan, London, Paris and Venice! Loads of techniques as usual (loving Kate Bentley's polymer clay tiles among others) to get your creative juices flowing.

See you soon,
