Angie's Digital Stamps 

Hi my name is Angie & I am a married mom of 2 boys ages 15 & 18. I sell digital stamps all hand drawn by me. I drew as a child but quit for many years and just recently started again. I figured since I love to draw & scrapbook might as well turn my drawings into digital stamps. So here we are!

The Prize for the lucky winner is 3 Digi Images

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning these fabulous prizes, simply enter your creations using Inlinkz below.

Please welcome our Guest Designer for this challenge.

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in crafting of some sort or another, hence the name Craftyhazelnut! As a child I was often ill and off school, so my time was often taken up with some form of crafting – embroidery, knitting, sketching and anything that involved cutting and sticking.

As an adult, for a few years, with work commitments, etc., crafty things fell into the background a bit, but until fairly recently I always had some knitting, crocheting  or cross stitching on the go.

Cross stitching is how I got into cardmaking, then I started to produce cards on the computer and then papercrafting itself about fourteen years ago, mainly cardmaking, but I also do some scrapbooking, altering etc.

Crafting is such a good way of relaxing and trying to forget about the aches and pains! I find that entering challenges keeps me up to date with trying new things that perhaps I wouldn’t otherwise try. I sell cards to raise money for charities – this includes Christmas cards, so I need to make a lot throughout the year, which is why I started my own Christmas challenge blog. I also have a challenge blog for using patterned paper.


Now it's over to you.  Enter your creations using Inlinkz below by 3pm on 5th June NZ Time.

Please remember you can enter up to 3 times.

Have fun!  The Creative Craft Cottage Design Team.
