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
Thank you for your visit to this post and all posts this past week.

This collection of six cards, appears in the Jan/Feb/March issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
It meant so much to me that they published all six in a feature over three pages.
All stamps are PaperArtsy LPC and all feature Infusions, Royal Blood.
They are some of the oldest LPC stamps but for me some were inked up for the first time for this collection.
Some rusty wire coils. The colour of the rusty wire worked so well against the Royal Blood Infusions.
It’s no surprise that scraps were utilised throughout the cards such as little stamped elements added here and there.
Card No. 2
Card No. 3
Mop-up papers bring texture. I stamped onto them, even though the stamped images are not crisp, it still brings something extra to the effect.
A wisp of coppery fabric.
Card No. 4
I liked the watercolour effect achieved. If you are interested, it is actually watercolour paper I worked with for the backgrounds and stamped focals, HP and NOT.
Card No. 5
On this card, I also used Infusions with a That’s Crafty Dinky Stencil, creating a hint of pattern on the base of the card
More scrappy mop-ups and another piece of that lovely copper fabric which lovely Dorthe gifted to me.
Card No. 6
I like that texture of the mop-up paper (kitchen paper towel) adds dimension even when stamped upon.
It’s all about the layers – this stamped piece of mop-up paper layered onto the stamped focal.
Thank you, always for your visits.

This is the front cover of the journal sample made for That’s Crafty’s shows for HOCHANDA. It is an early start for Neil Burley who will be demoing That’s Crafty products at 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
The journal, featuring Lynne’s Affirmations stamps, stencil and acrylic shape, will be available for purchase on HOCHANDA. They are available now, HERE. This journal size is 6″x6″ with tabs.
Thank you so much for your visits and your kind words about the sneaky peeks I’ve shared. It seemed such a big step to work on this journal and yet I enjoyed every minute of it and my regret is that time wasn’t on my side to have actually added some journaling which will be a huge step for me but one I am prepared to now challenge myself with.
I also appreciate that recent posts have been very much focused on new product launches and so I am even more grateful for your visits because hard sells can sometimes be too much!!!

Sharing another sneaky peek of one of my journal pages, a completed journal was made as a sample for That’s Crafty’s HOCHANDA appearances on Friday 17th March @ 7 am and 11 am. The actual blank journals will be available for purchase along with new stencils and acrylic shapes, plus some other new products.
All my journal pages are double spreads and I will eventually be sharing them as That’s Crafty DT posts but for the moment, a peek at another of the pages.
The stamps can be seen HERE!
Thank you for popping over to take a peek.

With permission from Laura Holland, the DT for That’s Crafty are allowed to share sneaky peeks of the journals we worked on for the upcoming That’s Crafty appearance on HOCHANDA, Friday 17th March, two shows which are 7.00 a.m. and 11.00 a.m.
Many of you will know, That’s Crafty are continually adding to their own ranges of stamps, stencils, substrates and more. The HOCHANDA shows will see some new products on HOCHANDA with demos from Neil Burley, who always does incredible work in showcasing That’s Crafty products.
This was an exciting and personal project for me to work on. The first time I’ve completed a journal, a great challenge in itself and one I am keen to re-visit. It was also another first but maybe that is still a secret for the moment!
A tiny peek at one of the double page spreads from my journal. I will be sharing a sneaky peek, each day up until Friday.
Psst…. here is a link to HOCHANDA to view the That’s Crafty products available…. maybe my secret is not such a secret after all!!!!!
Thank you so much for all your visits. I have a great deal of catching-up to do with all of you, I have either had enforced time away from on-line activities or when I am here, trying to keep up with as much as I can in a short space of time.
Thank you for being so understanding.
