Paperbabe Stamps is in February's Craft Stamper Magazine!

Yay! Paperbabe Stamps is in the February issue of Craft Stamper magazine, I can't believe how long it took me to sort this post out, I was going to post this earlier but I've been busy designing new stuff eek... In fact their next issue is already out...

I am over the moon delighted to have my work amongst the amazing designers in February's Craft StamperThanks Trish

I had great fun creating my step by step canvas with a couple, using my templates and face stamps, the background was built up with paint and pastes using various stencils and I re purposed the large quote stamp so it had a slightly different meaning...

But I wasn't the only one showing some Paperbabe Stamps love, the lovely Terri, created a beautiful dimensional girl and the fabulous Kim Dellow used the cute Whimsical woodland.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend, 
hope it's a creative one, HuGs Kim x
