Discover High Hopes Rubber Stamps

I apologize ENABLER ALERT !!!! haha

This is a company that is totally new to me, I discovered them on Twitter and they have some adorable stamps…. they also have a challenge..and we all know how much we love challenges AND new goodies.  More info  on the challenge and how to get the free digital stamp  so you can join in at the bottom of this post  If you are new to this company too, this is a fab way to  join in and maybe win some of these rubber stamps if you are interested in trying them out.


I was having a quick browse around and thought I would share some of the ones that caught my eye.  As most of you regulars know by now, I have a son who is 5 tomorrow ( Where did time go) and we plan to homeschool.  Creativity is a huge part of our learning process and the lil guy LOVES to craft.  That being said I am always on the lookout for  things for him to use and also things that can be used in “school” projects…. hey no one said education had to be boring… lol.

One of the first things that caught my eye were the backgrounds; these are perfect for both of us, both for card making and  adding visuals to  stories and essays etc  later on as he learns to write his own stories.

I love backgrounds, but I am pretty picky  and most of the ones I have are  digital .. but I love these..

and then of course we have fairies ..  sorry Merrie haha.. There are so many cool stamps at this store.. they come in foam mounted and unmounted.  Categories galore… oh dear this could get me in trouble if the little guy sees these…No crafty budget right now.. but if he sees Dragons…. oh my !

 
I will be adding this one into  the  tab above for stamps.. it is currently called DIGIS.. but I think I need to update it to STAMPS, since I  am finding more and more cute stamp companies who do physical stamps…  So expect to see that updated soon.

January 2017 Artists Challenge

Ok…  let’s have some  fun with a new theme for our fab artists.  I was sat here thinking of a new theme and smelling Double Chocolate Chocolate muffins permeate the air. I get to work, while the boys get to make goodies… but dang it smells good lol.
Not that THAT has anything whatsoever with the theme I came up with..I just thought I would share.  I am actually prepping this post up early,since we all have so much going on over the Holidays… me included.

I hope they aren’t ALL for Santa Claus…..

Anywho… by the time this post goes live;  the holidays will be virtually over, the  presents will all be opened,  the tree will be looking a bit neked if it’s even still up.  Some of you will be nursing hangovers and memories of another fab New Year with friends and family.  The trees will be coming down soon, the lights packed away for another year and  2016 will be officially OVER.  So in honor of 2016, a fab year filled with some fantastic crafters and artists and designers.. and  a farewell to our blinky lights and glitter ornaments…

Here is our new theme inspired in part by the end of a year, the glam and the glitz of hollywood and a whole bunch of crazy ideas…. some of which I listed below for anyone needing inspiration.

“It’s a wrap”

 

Who could think It’s a wrap without thinking of Hollywood and  movie making..   leading ladies, hearththrobs, glamour and glitz.  The Awards season is upon us… if you needed any additional ideas, check out this list. Awards Season Calendar  Please someone  do the SAG awards lol… It’s just begging for some humorous old Hollywood Broad with saggy…. everythings. 

How  about Egyptian mummies? nothing like an ancient dead person to inspire a few age jokes.

….or if you like bandages but aren’t too keen on dead people… there is always the medical  .. get well images for broken bones, bumped heads etc.

Want some more humor… how about  the old weight loss wraps, perfect for all of those New Year Resolutions.. that most of us are NEVER gonna keep.

Wrap inspired keywords:

baby, candy, gift, nails, hair, hollywood, movies,end, finished, awards .. let’s see what you come up with.
