my art journals IN PRINT!!!!

Oh I'm so excited, I still can't believe how much coverage the lovely Cynthia gave me in the latest issue of the stampers' sampler :) :) :)  I'm also very proud of myself that I kept it secret all this time ;)


I have to say a huge, huge THaNKYou to Julie Ranae because it was Julie who told me about the stampers' sampler artful envelope challenge earlier in the year (and sent me a punched shoe shape which I cut round to create the one featured below!).  I adore using envelopes in my journals, and to create journals from, so bravely trusted them to DHL and sent them off to sunny California!


Flicking through the magazine yesterday I could only find my work in pictures 4 and 6 above so assumed this was a heads up for the challenge being featured in the next issue.  Taking it to work to show my colleagues I discovered that the challenge was in this issue...



...and then even later (duh, I really wasn't concentrating), found the feature Cynthia had run on my 'Stamped Journaling' :) :) :)  I'm so happy, I still can't quite take it all in!!!



Thanks so much Cynthia for loving my work, and your sweet description of my talent too [whilst I describe myself as 'playing with paper, paint, inks and odds n ends', Cynthia says 'Sarah is clearly an artist and innovator as well as an experienced stamper' - how cool is that!!!!]

The Stampers' Sampler is available in the UK from Wendy at The Stamp Attic, and from Rainbow Silks.

Tomorrow I'm one of 120 bloggers taking part in a huge blog hop 'Operation Julie's Smile'.  There are over £1,500 worth of prizes in the prize pot and the hop runs the entire weekend so should be a good 'un!

Wow! Many congratulations Sarah. What you've done looks fabulous so I'll try and get my hands on a copy.
Rather difficult as I used to get my mags from our local Borders and miss it a lot.

Very well done!
