This evening, I am sharing a post over at PaperArtsy.
It is wonderful to be back there, where I am sharing a project relating to Topic #4 Doors, Windows and Architecture. All the details, the inspiration can be seen in the post, HERE.
This wasn’t the easiest of projects to photograph!
PaperArtsy ESC (Scrapcosy) stamps and stencils used throughout alongside, fabulous Infusions on a That’s Crafty House Triptych

In the new issue of Craft Stamper, the RELICS & ARTIFACTS Ambassadors are thrilled to be making an appearance for the 3D challenge.
Working with a specific R&A, Imperial Egg and with a Cat Kerr stamp of our choice, we each set about to make our submission. I selected the She Flies stamp, a stamp which can be used as one whole stamp or as three individual elements: girl’s face, sentiment and wings. I was keen to use all the stamped elements but working with them individually (if that makes sense!). The wings are stamped into paperclay, to allow the Nature Girl to fly amongst her woodland friends.

Today, at the That’s Crafty Blog, I am sharing another Stitches sample, this time working with a frame from one of the new That’s Crafty Surfaces shrines. This frame is from a large shrine but if you were to purchase a shrine, you receive a frame plus shadowbox – I received extra frames to play around with which is why I decided to use it in this way.
If you would like to read how I set about making this and the supplies used, then please click HERE.
Many thanks for your visit to this scheduled post especially as it has been an active week and I will be following this with another post very soon.

Before I was invited to be a Relics and Artifacts Ambassador, it was suggested by Sandra and Trish, that I create two projects featuring Relics and Artifacts for Craft Stamper.
Relics & Artifacts are a dream to create with and I don’t say this because I am an Ambassador, I say this because I have been using them for some time now and grow to love them more and more.
To see the full range of R&As, including Bohemian Jewels, Velveteen Flowers and more, visit HERE.
If you are already creating with them or have only recently discovered them, then why not join the Facebook Tribe and share your R&A creations with us.
Just to add, some of the R&As are available, in the U.K. from That’s Crafty
If you are a Craft Stamper reader then you might want to know that there is a Giveaway for some R&As!
The idea of the projects, to show how easy it is to work with R&As, with the stepped-out project showing how by simply transforming the Chandelier Pendants with a few supplies, they can become home decor items in very little time.
The assemblage frame is more time time intensive but the idea was to display the use of multiple R&As, all from different R&A sets, yet coming together in one theme.
Stamps used on both R&A projects – individual stamp details are noted in the Craft Stamper article along with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint colours.
Many thanks for your visit.

Well, today’s post is in sharp contrast to the ice cream colours of the paper dolls I shared this past week, today we are firmly in distressed, aged, heavy on the texture type of mode!
This is a That’s Crafty Arch Upright which was made as a sample for one of their recent HOCHANDA shows. The regularity of me sharing Uprights is testament to how much I love to work with them. This is a full size Upright which is an incredibly generous size.
If you would like to see further details for this, then please visit HERE.

Over at the That’s Crafty Blog, I am sharing a sample recently made for their HOCHANDA appearance.
I genuinely love the That’s Crafty Uprights and this was my first play with the Decorative Top, this is a full size Upright, not a Dinky.
Lots of texture on this, in fact I realised when drafting this post, this Upright is a combination of many favourites of mine:- That’s Crafty Upright, Infusions, Relics & Artifacts, staining fabric and papers, stamping onto fabric and creating texture.
More details, including extra photographs can be viewed HERE.
Read into this blog post title, whatever you may!
Thank you so much for your visit.

In the latest issue of Somerset Studio Gallery, Winter 2017, amongst the items I am so very lucky to have published, is this shrine to Frida Kahlo.
Yes, this is quite removed from my regular colour palette but I wanted to work with the Frida theme and knew I had to attack this with colour.
The shrine is from Calico Crafts Parts
PaperArtsy Metal Card was perfect for this project, painted with Frescos. The stamped shrine and Frida are Oxford Impressions stamps El Corazon with the panel behind, the stamped words, from Redlead Paperworks.
The stamped sentiments are all fussy cut, after again stamping onto the painted metal card, from the She Makes Art stamp – this stamp is a “must” in my eyes!
Two Sandra Evertson Relics & Artifacts were used on this shrine. This is the smallest heart from the Flaming Hearts Ex Votos I set
The shrine has amazing depth to play around in. I incorporated this arch shaped panel which was a piece of “waste” from the shrine – expect nothing is waste for a crafter!
Another Relics & Artifacts tops the shrine, this time from Ex Votos II, although this particular R&A can be found within a few of the packs.
On the left and right sides, after I had painted and carried out some distressed stamping, I stencilled two wonderful sentiments from Redlead. She Shares Her Story is the stencil and if you love sentiments with a positive feel to them, then a visit to Redlead is a must.
I actually made this in 2015 to submit to Stampington and Company. Some might say that is a long wait until publication, winter 2016, but for me, there is such fun in opening a magazine and making the discovery of a project that I had actually forgotten all about!
Thank you so much for your visit.
