How to use 3-way overlay stamps…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I’ve said this before, and I shall say it again: I consider our 3-way overlay stamps to be the best stamping design idea we’ve had in many years. I really do. And now I’m into Lino-cutting, and thereby have gone further down the road of printing and letterpress printing, I appreciate them even more! So I was pretty surprised to see we are retiring a few of them, and have included a selection of…

Is it too soon for Christmas?

Is it too soon for Christmas?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Is it too soon to make a start on our Christmas cards? I always seem to run out of time, mostly because I always leave it too late.

Did you get a chance to watch our Clarity Mixed Media Friday TV show on the new Create & Craft? I was showcasing our lovely Blockprint stamps. I really like them. There’s something very arty, edgy and earthy about them. I think also that they can be whatever the occasion begs: vibrant and bright, soft and…

Easter Greetings – Make Art not War

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Easter greetings to you and your family. I hope that the sun is shining wherever you are, and you are having a calm and pleasant weekend. Couldn‘t sleep, even after walking our socks off around London yesterday. That old washing machine head was up with the lark, and there was nothing for it, but to get up with it, and distract it. And what does a crafter do? Make art. We went to a…
