Card making with Unity Stamps

Hi all,

I've always loved Unity Stamps but lately I have become a little bit compulsive with buying them, I seem to have parcels arriving all the time - well at least 4 of them over the last few months! Have I made much with them though - no not really but I am amassing a nice collection. I do use lots of quote ones in my art journalling and am rather fond of Donna Downey's quote stamps and Christy Tomlison's quotes and textured background stamps.

Well here is a card I made just recently using stamps from my collection - I just can't remember which company!
Well that's it for tonight, I was just checking in. Hopefully soon I will get around to making another video which I have been wanting to do for a long time. Things are greatly changing in the next week so you just never know!

Bye for now,
Helen xx

Ups and Downs of Life

Hi all,

Things are a changing here in my little part of the world, things that are only really effecting my family but boy it has had a big impact on my life! Thankfully today I had my monthly art journalling class at Made With Memories and it gave me four hours of stress relief, even teaching 11 women to paint girls and shade it was fantastic to be away from my home situation.

Today's lesson was inspired by Christy Tomlinson's She Art but with my own twist. While my ladies were painting you could have heard a pin drop as they were all concentrating so hard but the rest of the class another story! Apparently I said a few things that allowed Deb to go down the dark path . . . something about only being able to manage one at a time while dribbling! Anyway here is the page that they created:

Next month something completely different but the ladies will be playing with joint compound, gauze and Inka Gold.

Bye for now and take care,
Helen xx
