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

More new stamp designs

Oh I love this time of year! Stitches is just around the corner and new designs are on the verge of being released. As Personal Impressions have now loaded details of the latest ranges, including my new stamps, I can safely share some with you. I am just uploading three for now, but if you'd like to check out the rest, then please go to www.personalimpressions.com, click on "coming soon" and, in the drop down suppliers list, click Lindsay Mason Designs.
As well as the Build a Scene stamps which I showed samples of in my previous post, there are tags, buntings and messages, some A5 sets and a brand new range called my "Off the Wall Collection" which are a little more quirky and ideal for journalling as well as card making etc. This first set from the Off the Wall range is called "Gwendoline" (PICSA6282) ......
......and this set is called "Gabrielle" (PICSA6280) - she's the one on the right and the character on the left I named "Kitty & Kitty". There's also two phrases to go with them as well as "Scrat" the cat. These are both A6 sets. The final set I'm giving sneaky peeks of as it were, is an A5 set that I know I am going to find useful for cards, jounalling, canvasses etc. It's called "Creative Thoughts" (PICSA5324) and has eleven sayings with an artsy theme. Apart from using them as they are, you can also cut out individual words to build new phrases of course. Hope you like them and I'll post some more images before Stitches and, if I can, I'll post photos of some of the samples I've been making for the show. Can't wait to share the ideas with you!
It's really exciting when all the work over the last few months finally comes together. Ideas turn into doodles, then sketches, then drawings, then into stamps and then into finished creations!
Hope everyone is keeping warm and cosy and no broken bones...it's been so icy here but so far no unwanted trips!

Have already looked at your new designs on the PI web site. Very quirky and imaginataive, and what a diverse range of styles. You are very talented! Looking forward to seeing you at Stitches, and again here at A Maze of Memories.

Love the Gwendoline set with the juggling blackbirds! And the arty phrases are perfect :)
I'm with you on living by the sea even if we can't see it!!! LOL

P.S. Don't know who the heck stocks PI stuff round here (we don't have much in the way of craft shops)...might have to go on-line somewhere.

Thanks Christina...looking forward to seeing you soon - get your thinking cap on re which stamps we want to use! Sioux - thank you...you can check out suppliers "near" to you on the PI website - yep, the sea air is doing me a world of good not to mention the quiet here. Lindsay x
