A Year of Stamping - August issue (by Lesley)

I hope you are enjoying our Year of Stamping series and if you are unsure what this is all about, please follow this link to get all the information about our year long project club.

Today sees the launch of the eighth stamp which is a wonderful collection of seashells at the bottom of the sea.  It is a wonderful complement to last month's Fishes stamp and it excellent for colourists and decoupage fans alike. Each AYOS stamp comes cut out and ready mounted on cling-a-ling so that you can start stamping straight from the packet.
Once you have purchased the stamp you will receive an email which contains a link to the online magazine that is packed with some really colourful and unusual projects.  All with step by step instructions and full colour photographs this issue also has an in-depth technique article from Glenda, hints and tips from our talented Design Team plus a selection of exclusive offers.

Here are a selection of reviews we have received so far:  

"these stamps are lovely along with the Mag, a brilliant idea" - Karen

"The stamp and e-magazine have provided some much needed inspiration. Stamp is as usual from CB of great quality. Already looking forward to the February edition!" - Christine

"This is a fabulous stamp that has loads of potential uses and the ezine that comes with it is full of inspiration" - Jackie

"It's great to get loads of different ideas and suggestions about what to do with stamps, and this issue is just as helpful as all the rest." - E

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to post a review on our website or who has contributed to our Facebook group. Seeing your artwork and reading your comments really gives us a buzz. Please keep them coming.

To give you a little more inspiration the photo below is of Glenda's diorama and my card, both of which are included in this month's magazine.

So if this has whetted your appetite then why not head over to the website and take a closer look. And don't forget, you can still purchase back orders of the stamps and get the links to the magazines.
