A bit of this and that ...


So, what have I been up to lately? This and that really ........ Just been playing with the new Dylusions stencils on old mop-up pages and backgrounds in my ledger journal. Not really finished, just playing ... works in progress ........


Here's my latest mop-up page. ooh, liking these colours a lot! Not sure what this page will become yet .... You can see some of the new Cherry Pie, Calypso Teal, and Dirty Martini here. *LOVE*!


And I've been very busy indeed carving (burning!) a lot of foam stamps. Can't seem to make these fast enough!

But today, I have to go and take the car for a while-you-wait service *groan*. Maybe I'll take my journal with me; sitting and waiting in a garage isn't my idea of fun :-(

Byeeeeeee for now ....

  1. Love what you've done with the stencil Kate (as always) Re: your stamps, perhaps you should think about having a supplier produce and retail your designs for you... I think it would be well worth your while considering their popularity !!

  3. Wow! Your foam stamps look amazing! Are you going to start selling them? I'm a big fan of all you do Kate. This summer I got all of your 4 DVD's and I loved them, and learned a lot! Thanks for sharing :-)))

  4. Hi there Mette, Thanks for your kind words :-) I have been selling some of my foam stamps but they take me a long time to make and I can't keep up with demand. Watch this space!

  8. Wonderful Kate! I love those colours too, I've been playing with the new colours on my February Journal pages, and cherry pie and fuchsia is gorgeous, with a bit of pink and orange too. Waiting for a stamp to arrive before I finish it. These pages look amazing too. I'm very excited about the prospect of the stamps Kate, I'm watching your space! Michelle x

    1. Hi Terry, I made a few hand-carved stamps and sold some on e bay. They were very popular (sold out in 5 minutes!) so I made a few more to sell, mainly though contact on Facebook. I will be making more to sell, when I have time! Kate x
