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

Used some fluffy stuff product on the Beanie Hat Template then added a few checks using Wonderland Check stamp. Happy Christmas sentiment is from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set

Terri decided as that as Christmas is almost upon us it was time to create a Nativity using the Cute Nativity MDF Substrates and the Cute Nativity Stamp Set.  She wanted a natural rustic look so chose to stamp straight on to the MDF substrates and colour with a light water colour wash. She constructed a stable using some salvaged wood and twigs to complete the look.
