Goodbye A.J.

It's time to say farewell to one of our long-term

Art Jypsy

AJ's colourful and creative projects have been gracing the pages of the Beccy's Place blog and store for the past couple of years, providing us with loads of fabulous inspiration! Not afraid to get bold and vibrant, there's no mistaking her fearless use of colour.

Loads of Cheer

This is my favourite truck from The Long Haul set of stamps, I love that I can add whatever I like to the back of the truck. In this case, I just used some blue, black and white Nuvo drops for a quick and easy card make.

Ready or Not

This is a good representation of how I feel once the Christmas shopping is done and the cooking is well in hand... I think we're still a day or two away yet.

More and more of us are becoming conscious of our impact on the planet and taking steps to reduce the damage we're causing. From collecting our own rainwater to composting food scraps and catching public transport, there are many ways to support the environment and help limit further damage.

In general, the paper crafting community embraces many ecologically friendly practices. Many of us are conscious of saving and using our scraps and off-cuts rather than throwing them in the trash. We are often bowerbirds when it comes to collecting interesting items for our mixed media projects, and there are even a dedicated bunch who regularly make their own paper by recycling items that would otherwise end up in the bin.

One of the most dedicated recyclers I know is the lovely Kathy Asper. You can usually find at least one upcycled item on most of Kathy's projects, and it seems there's no end to her creativity. She has used wrapping paper, old invitations, ribbons from packaging and even cardboard from disposable cups. So passionate about reusing as many items as she can, Kathy has even conditioned her extended family to save things for her projects.

With Christmas right around the corner, now is the perfect time to stop and think about the items you're putting in the rubbish bin, especially plastic and card board packaging. Be creative in your thinking and it won't be long until you're regularly adding upcycled elements to your creations too. Not only will you be lending a helping hand to our environment, you'll also be relieving a little bit of the strain on the purse strings as well.

Blessed Christmas

Glory to the Newborn King

I really don't need any more Christmas cards but I'm still feeling super inspired by all the fabulous entries from the November challenge. I keep returning to the gallery to look at all the wonderful cards... it's very easy to spend a lot of time there!

This little image is from the new Lamb of God clear stamp set, coloured with Prismacolor pencils on smooth card stock and layered on patterned paper. The star is punched from silver mirror card with a layer of dimensional magic for some extra shine.

New Release: Lamb of God

Our new Lamb of God images are the first designs that we're releasing as both clear and digital stamps. The digital version contains both black and white line drawings as well as full colour images for quick and easy crafting. Both sets include five mix and match sentiments to coordinate with the images.
