Thursday Already

This week has fairly whizzed by and after a busy week, we are off to Newbury tomorrow to set up for Artstamps England this weekend.

On Tuesday we ran the first of our new weekly Stop By & Stamp sessions. A gentle start with a very simple no measure pop up card using JOFY 15 stamps by Jo Firth-Young for PaperArtsy.

Here is 'the bones'...

and here are the samples you could follow if you wished....
and here are the results.
Not a bad morning's play ahem work.
See you same time, same place next Tuesday with a different demo and samples for you to try your hand at. If you fancy joining us then you will find all the details on the main Snazzy's website
Before I go we are starting a new monthly challenge at Snazzys Studio.
Most months at Snazzys we offer around ten new workshops with original projects, the Design Team share new projects every week on Snazzys DT blog and we have even been known to remember to blog a project or two either on my own blog or here on the store blog too. Add to that all the new products that arrive in store each month, the store display boards, the in store and event demos we do plus Art Journal Sunday, Stop by & Stamp and Sampling Sunday we are hoping you will find something to inspire you.
Your challenge each month will be to share a little something you have made, inspired by something you have seen in store, on our blogs, in our workshop or you have bought at Snazzys in store or at an event. Tell us what inspired you in the comments area of this post and link to where you are showing your project. On the last day of the month we will ask Mr Random to select a project and send a little prize to the winner.
That's all for now as I need to get packing ready for loading - if you are going to Artstamps this weekend do drop by stand 6 and say hello - Mike has ordered good weather so a picnic might be in order.
Back soon xx
