Dreams of Joy & Truth (Somerset Life)

Hello
Stampington & Company’s Somerset Life is quite unique, they call it “authentic and creative living”, with exceptional photography and beautiful articles guaranteed to cover all styles and topics, it makes it such a gentle read.   In 2012 I was published with a Creative Living idea, that one time made me so happy, it was a dream fulfilled of being published in Somerset Life.  I genuinely never expected to be published, it wasn’t a magazine I submitted to and it just seemed a dream too far to expect to submit an idea that would catch their eye.  Little did I know that 2016 would transcend any such dreams.
This particular article in the Summer issue features three pins where torn fabric and a sentiment stamped onto fabric is the feature.
joylynnemtwoThe bezels are quite small so it was a matter of seeking stamps that would fit the dimensions especially as I wanted the floral background fabric to also be seen.
joyonelynnemAs a really quick way to present the pins and a practical way to prevent them from tangling up with each other as they made their way to the Stampington offices, I made use of shipping tags.dreamonelynnemThe pins are easily detached to be pinned onto clothing, etc.dreamtwolynnemThe doming effect can be seen better in this photograph.betruelynnemThe fabric was frayed within an inch of its life before being encapsulated.betruelynnemoneJoy and Dream are PaperArtsy ESN stamps.
Many thanks for your visit today.

Spools of Positivity (Somerset Life)

Hello Everyone
This is another catch-up post, for something I had published as far back as Spring, in Stampington & Co’s Somerset Life magazine.. Somerset Life is one of my all time favourite Stampington titles. It is not a stamping magazine, it is an everything magazine.  Stamped projects might well appear along with fabric, mixed media, presentation ideas, it truly is a lifestyle magazine, to lead a Somerset Life.
As much as I love this title, it was only recently that I submitted to a Challenge Call, Bookmarks, which I shared HERE. On reading in that particular issue that there was to be a new Challenge Call for Torn Fabric, well I couldn’t resist. I don’t own a sewing machine and I don’t sew but I love fabric. As is often the case with me, the idea came about by pure chance when some fabric happened to be beside some wooden craft spools. To have my bookmarks published was a dream come true, but to have that followed with another article in Somerset Life, let’s just say, I am running out of words to express what it means to me!
I would like to share three pendants that are presented in the article. You will appreciate, I do not want to give instructions as they are printed within the actual article. blisslynnemsomersetlifeThe trickiest part of all was finding words of a dimension to suit the craft spools.  I am lucky to have lots of positive words in stamp form but most of them were too large for the purposes.joysomersetlifelynnemEach word stamped onto fabric, an absolute favourite of mine when it comes to stamping.joydetailsomersetlifeThe chains were deliberately made simple as I didn’t want anything overly fussy.dreamsomersetlifelynneThe stamps are from Darkroom Door (Bliss) and Joy and Dream are from PaperArtsy ESN.  Words stamps have to be amongst the most useful stamps we could own.dreamdetailsomersetlifelynneEach pendant was presented in its own fabric roll which again tied in with the challenge theme of torn fabric.somersetlifependantswraplynnemoncrieffWith pretty floral fabric bringing contrast to the calico and also acting as a closure.fabricrollsomersetlifelynnemThank you to Christen Hammons, the Editor-in-Chief, for publishing my pendants and thank you to all of you who continue to be friends of my blog, it is always appreciated.

Into The Garden With Maude (Guest Ambassador)

Hello Everyone
Only a couple of sneaky peeks to share in this blog post!
Some weeks ago, I received the most wonderful invitation, to be a Guest Ambassador for Relics and Artifacts.  This is a huge honour for several reasons.
Sandra Evertson, the creative soul behind Relics and Artifacts is an artist whose name I first discovered from Stampington publications.  Her artistry and stamps immediately caught my eye and I am lucky enough to have a few of her stamps which are genuine treasures amongst my stamp collection.  Then one of my first features in Take Ten, in fact I think it actually was my first Take Ten feature, was a card collection featuring her beautiful stamps.  So when I learnt of Prima Relics and Artifacts, well imagine my interest!  I’ve used them for PaperArtsy tutorials, for That’s Crafty DT projects, for gifts I made at Christmas and for birthday gifts, it is simply that I love them.
To have this invitation extended was a bolt out of the blue and I cannot thank Sandra Evertson enough.

The inspiration behind the project can be viewed HERE Sandra Evertson Guest Ambassador and the Snapguide tutorial HERE.

Thank you so much for your visit and if you do visit the Muse post or Snapguide tutorial then an extra, extra thanks.
