She Looks Into Your Soul

Hello
Recently, for That’s Crafty blog posts, I have been sharing many Uprights so I thought I would dip into their earlier substrates and decided to work with one of the white/greyboard hearts, which were, along with the MDF hearts, great favourites of mine so long overdue to have a play again.
The focal is one of the beautiful new PaperArtsy Eclectica LPC stamps.

Many thanks for your visit and also, thank you to my lovely friend Dorthe because she gifted to me that pretty sheer fabric with floral details.

I Believe In Courage

Hello Everyone
I never seem to tire of PaperArtsy’s Lynne Perrella designed stamps.
This week for my That’s Crafty post, I worked on a Dinky Upright (which I love) and incorporated fragments of mop up/under papers. Other than the Upright, this assemblage comprises scraps, even the tangle of fibres!

All details and more photographs, can be viewed HERE.
If you are a fan of PaperArtsy and in particular the Lynne Perrella designed collections, then you might want to know that it will not be too long a wait before new stamps are released!
Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to stop by.

The Miscellaneous Girls (Somerset Studio)

Hello!
Back in July I was beyond thrilled that a collection of paper doll panels were published in Somerset Studio as an article.  What made it all the more special, one of the first issues I read was dedicated to paperdolls and has become one of my all time favourite issues.  If someone had said to me in 2009 that 7 years later, Somerset Studio would have another issue dedicated to paperdolls and  I would be writing an article, I’d never have imagined that possible.
As a side note, if any of you are addicted to Prima Relics and Artifacts then you will have noticed the packaging is lovely.  The packaging was perfect as the backdrops for my girls, adding a hint of stamping here and there.
This is photo heavy so I have limited the chat for each panel!onelynnemThe lovely part of making paper dolls is how their personalities whisper to you and fun can be had.

fourlynnemFor each character, I merged Character Constructions stamps with PaperArtsy LPC.  In my article I touch upon the fact that I had inked up those designers’ stamps as both designers either their own art or stamps, appear in the Somerset issue from 2009, the one that made me sit up and be in awe of the paper doll creations within that issue.  Also, I am a huge admirer of both artists.onelynnemThis little birdie is from Character Constructions.  As you can see, this cheeky little fella has made a home within her hat.  Birdie, as this paper doll became known as, was one of my favourites to make along with her story.twolynnemAnother one of her feathered friends who has managed to step from outwith his cage.threelynnemThe Scholar…onelynnem

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.
