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

Don't faint!

Those of you who know me, or have seen me demonstrating, may well faint at these shocking photographs. Yes, that is me, actually cleaning my stamps!It very rarely happens so I thought I'd snap a couple of picures to immortalise the moment!
I gave them a good squirt of Stazon cleaner (the latest one), scrubbed them within an inch of their lives and gave them a warm, soapy bath followed by a good rinse and a dry in a nice warm towel. Personal Impressions clear stamps are Polymer, as opposed to acrylic, so it's okay to use permanent inks and cleaners on them. They don't look exactly like new, but I know that they'll perform better as they were getting a bit clogged up!
Oh well, there's a job I don't need to think about for another few months! lol, I am naughty I know! Lindsay
