Hi everyone

We did indeed release 6 new stamps, 2 dies and 3 masks very recently - do have a look at them all - you will find the new stamps HERE and HERE and HERE.  The new Dies HERE, and the new Masks HERE. I will probably chat a bit more about them in another post, however I must show you what Helen has done with the new Alice Palace Penguins - cos I do sooo love it!

They look like they are having great fun sploshing about in the water with the starfish.  Check out the link to Helen's blog above to see how she made this.  Helen had previously decorated the front of this canvas - bird style -

So two completely different looks on one canvas - cool!

I had a tiny little play with one of the new masks too, and an older stamp of ours CI-061 ..

We still have a Challenge on the go for August, and we are getting some great entries linked in on the relevant page HERE.  Do join in if you can as 'anything goes' in this month's 'open' challenge.  The team have been helping out with samples, and I was thrilled to receive the following project images from Sylvie -

There's certainly a bit of a birdy theme going on here.  I spot a 'Seagull Adventure' and 'Seabird and Roses' (this stamp is on special offer at the moment too).  Plus we have a visit on the printer tray from the 'Teatime Delights' birds too - in such stunning colours!

I don't think I've mentioned yet that I am delighted to have a project featured in the most recent issue of Craft Stamper, which is for sale on our site HERE, and here is a sneaky peak.  If you want to know what's inside those doors, you can find out if you get hold of a copy of the magazine.

Bye for now, thanks for tuning in, and please do leave a comment if you can,
