About Me

I'm a freelance artist, designer and demonstrator and have been involved in arts and craft my whole life in one way or another. I design stamps for top British company Personal Impressions, under the "Lindsay Mason Designs" brand, as well as papers, templates and other crafting products. I'm a certified Ranger Educator and my first book,"Stamping", was published in 2009. I also design regular projects for Crafts Beautiful magazine and have made guest appearances from time to time on QVC. I've recently joined You Tube under the name of LindsayMason1000 where I'm posting short technique videos and you can buy my paintings and hand crafted pieces from my Etsy shop. My work takes me all around the country demonstrating stamping, papercrafts and general inkiness! When I'm not working, I love gardening, church & community activities, nature watching, journalling, music and theatre and just relaxing at home. Email me at: ljm.design1@virginmedia.com

Template cards

As promised, here are a couple of pictures of the cards made using the Personal Impressions templates which are designed by Anna Stemplewska. They are really inexpensive, easy to work with and very versatile - I really enjoyed making the cards with them, asit was something a bit different and made a change from stamping! I used wire to create the cat's whiskers and added details with chalks and a fine pen, as well as brown textured card to create the stripes.
The dog template is incredibly cute! On this card I added patches of a toning decorative paper and drew stitch lines around him to give him a scruffy, but well loved appearance. The chalking is a crucial addition to really bring the chartacters to life. They are a great way of using all those bits of paper and card which we all have lots of I know!
Anyway, I hope you like them.
For anyone coming along to the Party Night at Dawn Bibby's Design Studio on Thursday, do remember to bring along your ATC's to swap. Look forward to seeing you there hopefully, Lindsay
