Inspiration from Around the Globe – November 2018

Ready for some inspiration? Today we have some projects from around the globe. It’s always fun to see how you’re using my stamps and stencils and I am so happy to share some examples today. So let me know if you’re doing something cool with my products, tag me on social media, and you might see yours on the next Inspiration from Around the Globe!


First we have Addi Mahajan from India using my Versailles stencil as a background in her vibrant art journal page.

Linda Edkins Wyatt from the US is using my Broadway foam stamp on this index card composition for a bold focal point.

And here is Karen D’Angelo from the US using my Amsterdam stencil for some unifying all-over pattern.

And Marsha Valk, a Creative Squad alumni from the Netherlands, and a funky blue bangle bracelet she decorated using my Batik stencil.

And finally, my friend Liz from Germany who made a card with my Lady Liberty stamp. Love it!


If you’re working on something fun with my stamps or stencils, be sure to tag me and share! I’d love to see! You can find all my stencils, rubber stamps, and foam stamps in my Online Shop. Here are some of the supplies used in this post:

Inspiration from Around the Globe – May 2018

Ready for some inspiration? Today we have some projects from around the globe. It’s always fun to see how you’re using my stamps and stencils and I am so happy to share some examples today. So let me know if you’re doing something cool with my products, and you might see yours on the next Inspiration from Around the Globe!


First from the US we have a gorgeous little book for Earth Day by Tina Walker (who was a member of our Creative Squad and you can check out some of her other projects HERE). On this page she is using my Versailles stencil for the background.

Here she uses my Toledo stencil as a background pattern for another page.

Next is an art journal spread from Mary Thoma in the US also. I love this portrait and the use of my Batik Pattern 4 foam stamp for the bold background and that little chain border is my Chain Link rubber stamp from the Embroidery set. What a beautiful page!

Loving all these patterns from Kate Crane in the UK! She’s using my Marks stamp set for those red and black xxx marks and hash marks.

Here is a beautiful page from Ellen Captijn from the Netherlands, inspired by this year’s Creative JumpStart online workshop. Be sure to visit her Instagram page to see the full art journal spread. I love how she’s incorporated by Buenos Aires Border foam stamp along the bottom in blue and my Valley Road foam stamps along the right side.

And finally we have an “oldie but a goodie” from Louise Nelson in Australia. She reposted this layout from 2013 so we thought we’d give it some love too :)  That awesome texture in the background is none other than my Crackle stencil – one of my first stencil designs and always a fan favorite after all these years! Thank you Louise!


Thank you to all the talented artists!  If you’d like to give some of these ideas a try, here are the stamps and stencils that they used:


Don’t forget to tag me when you post your projects! I’d love to include your work in my next Inspiration From Around the Globe post!

On whom to marry – Art Journal

“Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do” J.D. Salinger.

Agreed :) and that is one of my favorite things about my marriage- my husband and I can laugh at the same silly things together which probably have other’s just roll their eyes.

I used the Versailles Stencil oversprayed with different acrylic spray paint colors on the top.

For the bottom part I used the Toledo Foam Stamp stamped with some acrylic paint. and then journaled on top.

I used a catalogue image and painted over it with acrylic paints and markers. The faces are a bit …ahem- scary- LOL- but hey…another thing I can laugh about and I am sure my hubs would too ;)

Here are some of the supplies I used in this spread- some links are affiliate links:

P.S.  I cannot believe my wonderful friend Birgit Koopsen from the Netherlands is coming already next Thursday and we cannot wait for our workshops at The InkPad  there are still a couple seats left – check it out when you are in the area and join us!!!!

You can also get a special deal by signing up for both classes ! what are you waiting for  – two Europeans at once :)

Wishing you a wonderful day filled with laughter :)
