Happy Christmas and a Video Tutorial

Wishing you all a very
Happy Christmas
Thank you to each and everyone of you for all the love and support you have given to Paperbabe Stamps and my creative endeavours.

I have put together a video tutorial of my Art Journal cover, 
hope you enjoy and feel inspired...



On a personal note:
There has been so much upheaval behind the scenes in the paperbabe stamps HQ, with a family death, a busy cyber sale, and the house we've been renting has now been sold after two years of house viewers and weekly interruptions it was quite a stressful time. 

But we've found somewhere to move to, Paperbabe stamps will still be trading YAY! and I can maintain my British made craft supplies. The shop will be closed for most of January, while I pack up and relocate my family and everything Paperbabe.

 I appreciate your understanding and I wish you all 
a very happy and prosperous 
New Year
lets pray 2019 will be full of creativity and light...
Hugs Kim x
