August Craft Stamper Challenge Entries

Here are three entries from Lulabelle (Lynn) in response to the Challenge related to the August Issue of Craft Stamper Magazine set by Kym on 10th July.
The first one is inspired by 'Down at the Waters Edge' on Page 24 of the Mag.

The next two are inspired by Isabelle Norris's Technique No 2.

Very nice they are too !!!

Whoo Hoo we have reached 500 members !!!

We are very pleased to announce that since the UK Stampers Forum was started on 24th February 2006, we have reached a milestone in our existance.

Our 500th member joined us today - shaz from Croyden in Surrey, UK !! I think applause and virtual celebrations are called for !

So here's to shaz (and to all of us) for making the forum such a success. May we continue to grow and share our passion for craft to mutual benefit.

If you would like to congratulate her personally Click HERE

Cheers !!!!!

I challenge you

I've loved the new look for Craft Stamper, and I know quite of few of you have copies. So I thought I'd base it around the new August Issue.

To get up back in the swing this one is simple, and far ranging. All you have to do is select something from the issue, and lift it (or just use it as inspiration).

Please post a link in the comments of this challenge on the Cyber Blog (including a note of what page in the mag inspired you), and I will choose at random a couple of people to receive some of the lovely new Dropz (which are teeny tiny zoomz) and some ribbon.

25 points up for grabs for your Use Your Stash too.

Wow, look what happens when you turn your back for a moment round here

another host of lovely new members, welcome all of you - we're up to 482 already, and we've only been around for just over 2 years!

Congratulations to Craft Stamper, who've had a marvellous new makeover (August 08 issue out now), and a big thank you to them for mentioning the UK STampers and also they Cyber Blog (see Page 51 "Around the Web").

I really loved the sweet little polymer strawberry stamp, and fab projects incorporating it .... oh, and Isa's wonderful Masterclass on Distress Inks (page 62) is a great resource.

I am sure with such a great first issue with the new look under their belt, they will go from strength to strength, and I'm quite excited out the possibilities in the future.

One article that particularly caught my eye, was the "At the Water's Edge" altered art clothes peg written by Jo Capper-Sandon (page 23). As soon as I get home from our few days away I'll be looking out my Daughter's crayons and having a go making my own background papers - of course, I will also need to bag myself the great Bricks and Mortar sets from Paper Artsy (I can see that they will come in handy time and time again)!

It was also great to see that Zoomz and the Galaxy got a mention on "First Impressions" (page 7), and Tanda's Summer Set 1 was featured in "Stamper's Stash Dash" (page 39).

Altered 'Pringle' Container Swap

Hi everyone,

These are the results from June's altered art swap, which was an altered Pringles tube. This swap turned out to be a bit of a challenge, as we are all more used to working on flat surfaces, but in the end I think we all had fun, and produced some great pieces of art.
This months swap is a matchbox shrine, sign up here if you are interested, the more the merrier!
