Kinetic slider cards using Polkadoodles Toadfully Cute & Sunshine Friends collections

Do you get crafty moments/ideas instantly that when you see stamp images? I've really fell back in love with kinetic cards & that was after receiving 2 stamp set collections from Polkadoodles - Toadally Cute & Sunshine Friends .  The images spoke to me and said "make us move!". 

Stamping "hints & tips" to get the most from our stamps - Cleverprints Tribal Collection

Recently I did a Facebook Live where the focus was looking at our stamps with fresh eyes by changing both colour & composition plus ignoring the collections name! The stamp collection I worked with is from a company called Cleverprints & their collection called "Tribal".  Here's an overview of the projects I made during the Facebook Live. You can find loads more details further down in this post.

Stamping, doodling & oxide backgrounds with Dylusions stamps & stencils by Dyan Reavley

I recently discovered that I have lots of art journal pages that I've created on separate pieces of card & rather than let them become "dog eared" - or in some cases more dog eared - I bought myself a new journal to house them all in.  The page I am sharing today is one I created about 6 months ago during a Facebook Live.

Learning to photograph my craft projects featuring Text(ures) stamps by Lou Collins

Celebrating World Ocean Day 2021 - YouTube Hop & discount codes

 A sea related theme is my "go to" crafting wise especially if my mojo has decided to go for a short break somewhere. With today also being "World Oceans Day", I simply couldn't resist creating something with an underwater theme which could be used to highlight the importance of our worlds oceans.    Now I'm involved with a wonderful group of creatives to celebrate Worlds Ocean Day in a YouTube hop - more details below - each of us show casing an ocean/sea themed project. Also further down my post, you will find a whole host of discount codes from a wide range of crafting companies to use today as part of the celebration.

Gelli Arts Perfect Placement Tool - quick layering ideas

 Oh boy oh boy was I a "kiddy kipper" - to borrow the phrase from Emma Blake - when I received my Gelli Arts Perfect Placement Tool. For me, the wonders of layering with paints, stencils & stamps never ceases but I'm also not worried if I don't pull the perfect print. However I do know that for others, this can be the bit that turns them running to the hills from their gelli plate. Hopefully in this post I will share some of my prints that I have created & also a YouTube video showing the printing process.
