One my favourite brands, Paperartsy have just released a further range of stamps from their team of designers. We hold a small selection of the range in the shop but can normally order and take delivery of items within the week, sometimes sooner. You can view samples on the Paperartsy Blog. If there is something you want but we don't have in stock please contact us to place an order.
Blog Editor's Pick
One of my top favourites are the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics Paints. These high quality paints have a high pigment content and are water based. They come in a huge range of colours in both translucent and opaque, but the translucent can easily be made opaque by simply mixing it with white. They can be used with water or PaperArtsy Glaze, available in gloss, matte and metallic, to make a wash. They are also eco-friendly. It might come as a surprise that my favourite colour is not a purple but this teal colour called Beach Hut, maybe I'm picking up on the summer vibe.
Did you know if you visit the shop you can get a reward card. Collect a stamp every time you spend £10, and once your card is full you can exchange it for £20 worth of crafting goodies. If you can't make it to the shop why not take advantage of the free postage and packing when you spend over £3 online.
I will be back tomorrow with my usual inspirational post. Keep on Crafting!
