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

Quiet few days

I've spent the last couple of days getting used to using my new Cuttlebug with the Spellbinders Nestabilities and Shapeabilities...there's a mouthful of a sentence! I've been up to my eyes in circles, scalloped ovals, snowflakes, labels and hexagons and combining them with Christmas stamps. I'll try and get some pictures taken tomorrow before I pack them up for my trip to Carlisle where I'll be on saturday at Houghton Hall Garden Centre. I'll be using my favourite Distress ink pads too of course...I always manage to squeeze them in somewhere!
It's been a quiet few days other than my sample making and we haven't been anywhere (apart from grocery shopping...how exciting!) but then the weather has been the sort that makes it quite easy to stay indoors.
Check out Sarah's blog (on my bloglist below) as she is giving away some brilliant blog candy of papers and stamps etc and she is also including ATC's from herself, myself and my sister Heather - I still have to make mine and send it to Sarah, so that is on my agenda for tomorrow. To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on Sarah's blog.
Heather has posted pictures of a few of her ATC's, so if you haven't seen them yet, pop over and have a look.
"Matthew report" is that he is now making remarkable progress. His feathers are looking sleek again, his tail is growing at an incredible rate and today he even managed to put his crippled foot down, not bearing weight, but at least he could balance better.
Well, not a lot to report today, but I just wanted to say hello and will post new card photos asap. Lindsay

Hi Lindsay, thanks ever so much for the lovely comment you left on my blog, truly appreciate and am honoured. Those stamps of yours are brilliant and I really like the designs. I also really enjoyed you working with Dawn on QVC. I hope we will see you again as your demos were very inspirational, and I know that QVC have tight timings but you've managed beautifully to show your expertise and what can be done with your lovely designs. Hugz XXXX Fab

Absolutely love your new blog background. What is the title of your book. Tried to get one in Christchurch on Wednesday but no luck. Having trouble with the web whilst away so not managing to keep in touch with anyone. Wrote you a postcard then realised I'd left your address at home!! xx

Off to make some ATC's myself for a few swaps I do. Keep meaning to do less but they are so addictive. Hazelxoxo

Fabrizio - thank you for your lovely comments. Joanne - the book is "Stamping" (original eh?!) but is from craft stores and some small shops ie not Smiths etc. Hazel, glad you visited Sarah's blog - good luck! Lindsay x
