Mermaid Collection Hochanda Show Recap

I think this has to be one of my favourite collections of all time to designs and take onto Hochanda. All 4 stamp sets had their own featured Mermaid and accessory scene building stamps, there were Sirens, Baby Mermaids, Seahorses and lots of Waterlily and Lotus motifs throughout the stamps and stencils. The other big feature was the premiere of our Crafter's Faux Suede, a man made suede like textile that acts like a craft paper and takes all sorts of paints and media while retaining it's sued like feel, perfect for book covers, as seen above. All our stocks sold out and we're now on extended delivery which was fabulous. I can't wait to find out how everyone else feels about using it. To see how I created this journal cover click the link to view the first show on the Hochanda website

Anyway we are still in the midst of a busy packing session and then it's back to creating the next collection which will be something completely different!!

This is the fab intro video they did featuring some of my makes for the show...

What an Amazing Show!

I cannot describe how amazing our time was with the Hochanda team yesterday. The White Magic show started with a bit of fun where I had to magically conjure up our presenter lol....and we had so many wonderful emails and messages from viewers and the folks at home really seemed to embrace the new collection. I was so tired afterwards, but elated. Now off to do packing....

We have some new Website exclusive stamps which I will share here, and a limited stock of the items from the show. You can always contact me here or on if you want me to reserve anything

The shop has everything we have currently in stock HERE  

Anyway , see below for a mini clip of the hilarious moment I had to cast a spell at the top of the show, you can still watch the show on the Hochanda website right here if you wish

Website Exclusive Stamps !!

Special Announcement! - as you can tell I LOVED creating this collection so much that I went overboard and created more illustrations and artwork than needed for the Hochanda show, so I figured I would make more stamps from them that would be exclusive to my online shop. There will be fewer in number than I do for the show so it is a case of while stocks last, although I can take back orders if you can wait lol. Anyway here they are my Unicorn Stallion and Celestial Witch Stamp Sets . I will add them to the shop after I have finished my show tomorrow, which has the main collection . I hope you love them as much as I do

White Magic !

White Magic is the theme for my latest collection which will air on Hochanda August 25th at 4pm. I was asked specially to take part in this Anniversary event and am so excited and flattered to be a part of it. I have a brand new set of epic stamps, stencils and a Paper pad to go with it. The collection features white witches, sort of celtic, and pagan themes - nature loving magical beings and their beautiful magical creatures such as unicorns. The style I have adopted is influenced by Alphonse Mucha's Art Nouveau style especially visible in the tarot card designs as seen above

I will be making samples for the show as the week progresses and I have to say it is a real pleasure to play with this collection. I am loving every minute of it!! See more below ….
