A Tattoo Design Tea Bag Folding Labour Of Love

For a while now I have had a list of design ideas that I’ve been wanting to try. With a rare day off the other day I thought that I would give one of them a try.

It was a simple concept – make a teabag folding design using rubber stamps.

Little did I realise that it would become a labour of love and take up most of that day off.

It was definitely fun to do though and I was so proud of it that I thought that I would like to share it with you all.

The Key To Happiness Rubber Stamped Card - Featured Image

The Key To Happiness (It Could Be Custard Donut Fingers…)

The key to happiness is quite elusive. According to some rubber stamps that accompanied this month’s issue of Get Stamping the message is clear, “Doing what you like is freedom; Liking what you do is happiness”.

I guess that they have a point.

Anyway, don’t worry, I’m not going to waffle on about philosophy and all that. I think that you can guess that this post is in fact about something that I made with the stamps that I got with the magazine.

Creating A Geometric Design In Serif Craft Artist

I find creating geometric patterns in Serif Craft Artist very easy. I have had a couple of questions in recently asking if I could create a video on how I do this.

I don’t actually have the facility to do this right now however I though that it would be easy enough to explain how to do this with step by step screen shots – so that’s what I did. I hope that this helps those of you that were curious …

Monday Mojo – Magazine Inspiration – RSVP Card

Ever have those mojo lows? I know I’ve had a couple over the last few weeks, and having talked to some of you on Facebook and Twitter, it appears that you often have the same problem. I therefore thought that I would start a little mini-series of mojo busting techniques that I sometimes use in the hope that it will help you too :)

Now, I don’t know whether it is my age, or just the need for something tangible in my hand however I have been reaching more for magazines lately than I have the internet. Are you the same? (Seems a bit weird asking that as you are reading this on the internet…)

Anyway, I recently wanted to do a bit of stamping but really didn’t know where to start (that mojo was M.I.A) so I started flipping through my stash of magazines when I came across some great designs from Stephanie De Geus (cool name huh?) in Issue 14 of Creative Stamping magazine…
