Please vote for Sir Stampalot in Best Independent Craft Store in the Midlands

Hello everyone, don't panic, you've not lost a couple of weeks, it's still only the middle of the month so not time for our new challenge just yet.

I am just posting to let you know that we are at the time of year when we can vote for the crafters who give us inspiration, the crafty goodies that have most taken our eye......goodness so many to choose from there.......and most importantly our favourite craft store.

So if you would like to vote for our very own Sir Stampalot please pop along HERE or click the logo at the top of this post and cast your votes...........you will need to add their names under 'other' of the Midlands section (21) on the form.

All of the sections on the form have options already entered, but if you don't see who or what has rocked your imagination this year you can add your own choices in the 'other' box.

I have to say that your entries for September's challenge have all been absolutely stunning, so keep them coming folks, we are so enjoying looking at them all. But I'm thinking the end of the months voting might be our most difficult yet.

Thanks for visiting.

September Challenge

Hello and good morning to everyone, how time flies, it's hard to believe this is our sixth challenge and each month our numbers have increased and I believe August saw our highest number of entries yet. So a huge thank you you one and all for your greatly appreciated support, you are what makes our challenge so special.

So are you all ready for a brand new challenge, I do hope so because we have a great theme for you:

All Distressed

I love my distressing and anything which involves getting messy fingers and I hope this is one you are going to enjoy as well. Even if it's a style of crafting you do not usually do, you would be amazed what a different look you can achieve by just roughing up the edges and adding a bit of ink. We are looking forward to seeing all your creations and for one luck winner this is what we have on offer this month:

Prize includes some gorgeous stash including: Tim Holtz Rulerz Book, Tim Holtz Accessories from Junkitz (metal framez, edgez, tabz, anchorz, braz, epozy stickers), Zision Took kit from Provocraft (tool kit comprising 18 pieces : hammer, wire cutters, 8 tip punch set, self healing mat etc etc and zipped case to keep it all in), 2 dozen sheets of cardstock/patterned paper, Paper Edge Distressing Tool, Photo Mounting Tape, Tags Template, Alphabet Transparencies, Alphabet Bottle Cap Stamp Set, Metal Bottle Caps, Layered Sentiment Stickers and a Melissa Francis Vintage Keyhole

Over the coming months we will be having some Guest Designers and this month I am thrilled to introduce Lina from Sweden. Lina was one of our lucky winners back in May and she has a super and unique style of crafting which I really wanted to share with you all. Please do pop over to her blog, I know you will be inspired. Here is what Lina has created for us:



This is the box she made to store her TH distress ink


And a fabulous Bind it All journal

And the regular Design Team have also done me proud. I know some of them are not into the distressed look, but you would never know from their super work. You can visit all their individual blogs by clicking on their names.
