PaperArtsy Celebrations

I am delighted to announce that I am guest designer on the PaperArtsy blog today. The month of August is all about celebrating ten very successful years of PaperArtsy. There are new blog posts every single day to inspire you plus lots of giveaways too. Here's a little sneaky peek or two of my celebration project.



To see the complete project and how I made it, click here to hop on over to where the party is at.

I'd just like to publicly thank Mark and Leandra for inviting me to be part of the PaperArtsy gang, you guys are beyond generous and I am thrilled that you like my work enough to be part of the PA team, you guys are the best. Oh and Leandra makes the best flapjack, apricot, fruity thingy that I've ever tasted!!!

As a little extra surprise from the guys at PaperArtsy, I have a bit of a giveaway here on my blog. Simply leave a comment on this post before 6.30pm on 31st August 2013 and your name will go in the draw with a chance to win a set of my brand new stamps. There are two sets to givaway....one of them could be yours!!!

Oooh, these little tasters look very ............ tasty, lol! Seriously Lin I have so enjoyed all the projects that have been made by the DT and yourself using your gorgeous stamps. I don't have any yet but hoping to rectify that very soon. A lucky draw here would be a lovely start ;D.

Hugs

These projects are wonderful again, Lin. The colouring of the flowers is amazing.

WOW you seriously need to go and see the whole thing, it's fantastic.

As a rule I don't do or like flowers, but Lin, yours just rock and because of this I just love your newest stamp plate, it looks so versatile, I'm already thinking up things I could do with it.

I haven't seen your stamp line before, but I love it. There are two I really would love to get, the one with the faces (I am seriously lacking face stamps, and the one with that quote about not being perfect.) I just recently decided to stretch myself into MIXED MEDIA and do less cards. But there is so much to learn and such a larger variety of stamps and materials needed. Glad I love rummaging - but it takes some time. Anyway, I love your book project, thank you for sharing such great details, your photos and descriptions are just right. Your tips of stampoing on fabrics were very helpful as I was first a quilter, then a stamper and now a fiber artist. Your work is awesome and inspiting.

Fabulous project & I looove the idea of a blog giveaway! Count me in :-) as my fingers are crossed.

Jane said...
