Sepia week with The Stampman

Fabulous creations last week with the die cuts and punches theme - looks like it really got your MoJos working!

This week we have a few pictures from our sponsor The Stampman
Jill has done some fabulous mini travel books inside a lovely mini suitcase. Not only is she sharing her stunning work with us but also offering a £15 voucher for the lucky random winner of this weeks theme of "Sepia"

Now don't go panicking if you don't own sepia tones of inks or paints because I'm sure you all have either tea or coffee in your kitchen cupboards. Both these are fantastic for getting shades of sepia for lots of crafting projects. Coffee is a great medium for painting with and tea is great for colouring card/ paper/ ribbon and lace so go on have a little play and share your creations with us. Here's a few from the design team.

Firstly our Guest Designer for this week Georgina

and the rest of the team
