Make Your Mark @ PaperArtsy

Hello Everyone
I am very late in sharing this blog post!
Last Monday evening I had a tutorial over at PaperArtsy. It is always fun to be involved with a PaperArtsy tutorial as they always come up with such wonderful and varied themes for us to work with. I knew in advance I would be doing some mark making and also working in conjunction with JOFY stamps.
Here is a peek at the projects made for the tutorial…blogphotoIf you would like to view the tutorial it can be seen HERE.
Sorry I haven’t managed to visit your own blogs.  I wish I could say it is because I am in a creative whirlwind but that is not the case but hopefully soon I will be back amongst my supplies.  Your visits are always appreciated by me, especially during those times when I cannot find my way to your own blogs.

Heart of a Relic @ Craft Stamper

Hello Everyone
Being a small part of the That’s Crafty DT is so rewarding and so it was really lovely to see all the DT, as a collective: Alison, Amanda, Donna, Fliss, Moira and me, in the October issue of Craft Stampercs_197-oct16We all received two sizes of That’s Crafty MDF hearts to create with for the Craft Stamper 3D Challenge.
I am only permitted to share a sneaky peek of my project which really doesn’t give much away!  I think it is okay for me to tell you that this is a peek at a piece of jewellery which features many of my favourites craft items.  That heart is actually a stamp, all our projects had to feature stamping.
lynnemoncreiffCraft Stamper is available in the U.K., in shops and online and also available from Crafty Individuals site.
The MDF hearts we worked with are available from That’s Crafty, in various sizes.
Congratulations and Thanks to Laura and Graham for creating such fabulous products for us to play with and thanks also to Trish Latimer.

Hello Everyone
This past week, at That’s Crafty, we have been celebrating the release of That’s Crafty stamps, as designed by Donna.
I particularly liked that Donna designed the stamps with the inclusion of words, so decided to make a word stamp the focal for my DT project.blogphotoIf you would like to read more, then please visit HERE.
Thank you for your visits this past week and for those of you who joined my Giveaway.

Giveaway Time!

Hello Everyone
Stampington & Company have generously provided two Giveaway prizes for me to offer to you.

Visit HERE to view the digital issues available but remember, it will only be for Willow & Sage (for this particular Giveaway).
As it is a digital magazine giveaway, it means the giveaway is open to everyone no matter where you stay in the world.  I know some of you would prefer a non-digital magazine but that would limit the giveaway to only those who reside in the U.S.A.
You have until 20th September to enter by leaving a comment to join in the Giveaway either here or the Facebook post.

Remembering 9/11

Hello
Some weeks ago, I was approached by Christine Rice Cooper to participate in an anthology of reflections on 9/11, memories of that day and any significance to our lives and art.havefaithlynnemoncriefffeatherThe unfolding of what would become known as 9/11, can be played in my mind as though watching a film. Geographically, the distance is 3,000 + miles away but the impact of the horror, I doubt if I could have been more shocked if it had happened within this island I live on. Emotions transcend geographical boundaries, this was a disaster which resonated with us on a human level, of fear, of confusion, of grief and even, anger.
My recollections of that day and those of so many others, can be viewed HERE.
Many thanks to Chris Rice Cooper for having me be a small part of this anthology.
Wishes
Lynne
