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

Workshops news!

Evening everyone, well, more like night night really. We were out rather longer than anticipated due to some very long hold ups on the motorway.
Anyway, I can now give you details on the new workshops that I'll be teaching from July, in conjunction with Crafts 4 U 2 Do. They will be held in Dentons Green, St Helens, Merseyside, just up the road from the shop. The workshop area is a lovely, bright and airy room, just perfect for getting creative in, as well as having lots of fun of course!
The first three workshop dates and themes are:

Saturday 16th July: 10am-4pm
"Inky Techniques". In the morning we'll be making cards with a fantasy feel - fairies, trees and castles etc along with interesting backgrounds using various inking techniques.
The afternoon session will focus on more "artsy" cards, using up to the minute products and more techniques.
Cost for this day is £30.00

Saturday 13th August: 10am-4pm will be a demonstration day at Crafts 4 U 2 Do for the launch of their Christmas event. Followed by....
Sunday 14th August:
10am - 12.30pm "Ease into Christmas" - Christmas cardmaking with some of the latest products.
1.30pm - 4pm - repeat of the morning workshop
Cost per session is £15.00

Sunday 11th September: 10am-4pm
"Full on Christmas". In the morning we will be working with snowmen designs to create cards that everyone will appreciate receiving.
In the afternoon we'll be making an ornate Triptych card using mountboard, stamps, papers and other Seasonal ephemera.
Cost for this day is £30.00

All the workshops will include light refreshments and on the full days there will be an hour's break where you can pop down to Crafts 4 U 2 Do to have lunch at their instore cafe (and to shop of course!).
These are the first three dates but I will be posting details of more workshops very soon. If you'd like more details, or to book a place, please email me on ljm.design@ntlworld.com . Alternatively, you can call in to Crafts 4 U 2 Do, 117-119 Greenfield Road, Dentons Green, St Helens. Places will fill up quickly, so do contact me asap!
