Submission Call!

We know that many of your enjoy seeing your work in print in (hopefully!) your favourite magazine. We are presently looking for more Reader Submissions (the one page submissions rather than Over to You items). So if you have a fantastic technique idea, an original design, or you've just made something stunning do get in touch!

Initially we would like to receive your submissions by email, so photograph your project and email a picture to cs@traplet.com (don't worry about the photo quality - as long as we can see what it is that's OK!). Include a brief description of the piece, especially it has any special features or techniques used which may not be obvious from the photograph. Note that all submissions must include stamping in some form and remember that if you are successful you will need to send your project to us for photography. For this section of the magazine we do ask for previously unpublished work please.

We can't wait to see what you send us!

(PS: Over to you is open for magazine-inspired submissions as normal, email overtoyou@traplet.com)

(Please note that due to the volume of emails we receive, we regret that we cannot reply to your submissions individually. If you have not heard from us within one month of submitting your project please assume that you have not been selected on this occasion. Please remember we only choose one project a month, so if you are not successful, do try again!)

Free Stamp Fun - July 2012 Issue

We thought we would try a new monthly blog feature all about our free cover stamps. We know lots of you make beautiful creations with the stamps and we thought it would be lovely for blogging readers to be able to share their makes with each other via the Craft Stamper blog.

This month’s stamp is a fabulous pair of bunting flags designed for us by Stamposaurus – great for the summer party season!

July Free Stamp by Stamposaurus
Link up below to show us what you made with your bunting. We can’t wait to see your fab creations and when the gallery closes we'll pick a favourite to feature on our blog.
