It was in one of these groups where I first saw a card made using Lavinia stamps and I can honestly say it was love at first sight. I bought my first stamps just over 12 months ago and haven’t looked back since. I have quite a collection now and it’s still growing!
I’ve always loved learning and am a great believer in it never being too late to learn something new. My hobbies are very eclectic – I learnt to ride a motorcycle at 35, to play the clarinet at 40 and now I’m enjoying learning how to embrace my more artistic side. I love everything about the whole process of cardmaking from the design through to the stamping, the colouring, and the embellishing and I use lots of different mediums, my favourites being ink sprays and pastels.
Through my love of Lavinia Stamps not only have I found so much wonderful advice and inspiration, but I’ve found friendship too. I know that I am at the very beginning of what will be a long and happy crafting journey, and whilst I don’t yet know what my next learning challenge is going to be, I have a long list of ideas!
I feel truly honoured and excited to be asked to join the Lavinia Guest Design Team this month, and I hope you enjoy seeing my work using these beautiful stamps. If it inspires you to have a go yourself then I would say absolutely do it, but most importantly – have fun!
