Special new inspiration to inspire you


Hello Everyone,
Hope this day finds you amazing. Richard and I were in England for 3 weeks and just got back to the US…

One of the funniest things that happened on the trip was we were teaching at a historic 1600's hotel conference room and a couple gentlemen came in to do a fire alarm test in the middle of the class. The sound system was triggered and music started blaring and Graham (from Oyster stamps) turned on the disco lights until someone could figure out how to shut it off. Some ladies opted to dance and craft at the same time! :) Hahahaha!

Special thanks!!!
Oyster Stamps in Kent did a fabulous job organizing the retreats and making sure everything got set up and organized properly. Graham, our host, had many "graham facts" that everyone was laughing about constantly ;)

We have been a family owned business since 1997 and take pride in delivering to you the BEST elegant, vintage, ornate, wonderful inspiring creative inspiration to brighten your day and your world. Our carefully-selected designers have prepared new scrapbook pages and cards that are available for you right here on the blog today:)

I’m so thankful to have you as a part of our family. Have a blessed week crafting, gardening and playing with your furry bundle of love! ~Emma lou

I love using this wonderful collection of Cut Mat Create dies to help me create easy layers on my cards. No more measuring! I just cut my base papers with the larger die and then create my next layer with the smaller die. They are calibrated to create perfect layers every time. I use the smaller labels and accent dies to finish my cards. It is so quick and easy...and FUN! No more stressful measuring, trimming...just cutting, matting and creating one beautiful project after another!

Thanks A Bunch BoxOther Products: Victorian velvet distress ink, tumbled glass distress ink, vintage photo distress ink, chipped sapphire distress ink, glue, hot glue gun, black memento ink, bandage, flatback pearls, zipper, handmade headpin, embellishments, acrylic paint.

Instructions: This time I decided to alter a cigar box :)) of course it will be stuffed with some sweets for the HC staff :P I painted the box first with acrylic paint and sprayed it with blue dysolusions spray, the inner box was also painted but no spray used. Then it is time to cut matching pieces from the Cut Mat and Create Paper Collection. As usual I inked all the edges first (also from the cigar box) I decorated the outside and inside of the box with the paper collection, cut a lot of flowers from the Arianna Blooms Dies and cut some decorative dies from the Cut Mat and Create Dies collection. For decoration I also used a small zipper and created a headpin. For the inside of the box I used lace for the inner edges.

I was so disappointed that I couldn't get to the workshop at Kenilworth but I was on holiday, on the plus side I did pop into the Stampfest show that your company was exhibiting at in Orlando so I got see your wonderful creations up close and of course just had to buy some of those lovely stamps and papers.
