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

Inertia after the Leigh Show!

What a wonderful weekend it was at the Leigh show. I was demonstrating on The Stamp Hut stand and it was non stop from the moment the show opened. Here's where I was chained to the table all day - apart from when I was taking this picture! No, not quite, but we didn't even take a break and just kept going on coffee and water. You can see all the products that I was demonstrating behind my table - except for the whirligigs of decoupage which were on the adjacent stand and kept knocking my cards flying every time someone whizzed them round!
Lots of my stamp designs and the Gorjuss range along with Ranger goodies, including my new favourite Glue n Seal of course!
Here's a closer look at one side of my table, not that it was as tidy as this for very long, though I was quite good really and didn't make too much mess!I met so many people that I know, many of whom I haven't seen for an age, so it was a lovely couple of days. Hope you are all making good use of your purchases and Glueing and Sealing for all you're worth!
I'm going to be at Crabapple Crafts in Frodsham this Saturday where I'll, once again, be working with Gorjuss stamps as well as some by my mate Andy Skinner. I'll have some new My Minds Eye Kraft papers as well, which I really recommend as they're a great weight, really unusual designs and work well with Distress inks. I'll post some samples later in the week, but have got lots to catch up on for the next few days after a Thursday and Friday that got completely taken over by other things for one reason and another.

Now, my good news for today is this............ .............yes, after some people pressure, Personal Impressions have added my robot into my Off the Wall Collection of stamp sets. Initially he had been made into a Twinchie sized stamp (still available) but I asked if he could be made into an A6 set and I drew some springs and nuts to go with him. So "Overhaul Needed" PICSA6332 will be available from the end of March. This is a version of the robot I drew for one of my journal pages but he'll be just as useful for cards, scrapbooking or any altered art projects as well of course.
I'll sign off for now as it's time to sort out some food for Thomas and Tara, as well as David and myself of course!

Glue and Seal is next on my list of things I need and now I have to add the fabulous robot too - I never seem to get to the end of my list. The cards on your work station look gorgeous and isn't it just lovely to meet up with old friends?
