Saturday, September 5
A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Wendy Gale ... the lady who owns the Stamp Attic, which specializes in stocking some of the more unusual stamps on the market.
Anyways, Wendy asked me if I could decorate a set of the Wendy Vecchi acrylic stamp binders for her shop Wendy Vecchi style.
You know what it's like ... While doing a happy dance ... I thought about it carefully ... playing with grunge paper, Wendy Vecchi stamps and distress inks ... and two seconds later I said YES!
The binders arrived and I set to work ... I had so much fun! I started with a base of grunge paper which I was going to lay the wrong side of the binder ... but the textural finish you get was just too good to hide ... so I layered that on top and decorated it with lots of Wendy Vecchi's gorgeous flowers, Grunge board elements and Idea-ology bits and pieces.
So that was the reason for all my secrecy the other day ... I wanted Wendy Gale to see the design first ... and of course check that she liked it before I showed you all.
Luckily she did! We had a lovely chat on the phone earlier ... This virtual world is such a great place to make new friends in real life!
Did I mention the folders will be displayed in The Stamp Attic :0)
So for me this has been a great week ... Craft Stamper, The Stamp Attic and being added to Wendy Vecchi's blog list!
But most of all ... the lovely comments from all of you ... I don't want to do the mushy kind of 'I love you guys' thing ... but you do make crafting and blogging very special ... so Thank you all very much ... oh ... and ... erm ...
I Love You Guys!
