Artisan swaps

I thought I would share a few of the ATCs I swapped at the Artisan show with you. The cards are by (left to right, top to bottom): Sheila Jordan; Maureen Cross; Sally Sharman; Scrappy Anne and Anneliese Bates.

I hope all that attended the show had a good day - I certainly enjoyed meeting some of you and also doing a little bit of shopping in between teaching. Thanks also to everyone who came along to the CS Make & Takes at the show - you were a pleasure and I hope you enjoyed the little projects we did.

Meet Sue!

I'd like to introduce the newest member of the CS team - Sue Law. A while ago you may recall we advertised for an Editorial Asst? Well, Sue was the successful candidate and she started a couple of weeks ago. Sue's tasks will include the ATC swap (those waiting for their cards will be pleased to hear she started on this today and the tree ones have gone in the post) and trying to organise me (good luck with the latter Sue!).

Sue has been stamping for a while and likes to try out lots of techniques. If you are a customer of Tanda Stamps you might recognise the name as Sue designs some of their stamps.

So, if you contact the CS office in future, win a prize or submit artwork you might be speaking to Sue. I hope you'll join me in giving her a warm welcome.

EXCLUSIVE subscription offer!

We are delighted that this issue we have an EXCLUSIVE subscription offer for you from PaperArtsy! The offer includes four minis which have been designed specially for Craft Stamper magazine and are only available from us for the duration of the offer. Also great if you are thinking about getting a sub for a Christmas gift as you can be sure the recipient won't have these brand new stamps!

The designs are fab - if you're tempted you can find out more at

Misprint - Happy Stampers North West Stamping Festival

I must apologise for a misprint in the latest issue of the magazine.

Please note that the HSNW Stamp Festival is on the 10th October, not the 4th as stated in the What's On section of the magazine.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused both for the show organisers and patrons.

New magazine out today and some ATCs

Just wanted to remind you that the November issue of Craft Stamper magazine is on sale today, filled with lovely projects including a few Christmas ones to start off your festive crafting.

It's also the Artisan show at Leamington Spa this weekend and Craft Stamper is hosting an ATC swap. So I've made a handfull of cards to take with me to exchange with readers and I thought I would share a few with you here. Other Craft Stamper design team members will be bringing cards to swap, so if you are coming to the show be sure to make and bring some ATCs and pop to the 'Trade It' area.

The top left is made with PaperArtsy stamps, the top right and bottom left Hero Arts, the bottom right Crafty Individuals.

I look forward to swapping :).

Have a fun weekend,
