Today’s Featured Web Site: Stampington & Company
I treated myself to the latest issue of Somerset Studio Gallery (Winter 2012) today. I’m looking forward to a quiet afternoon, sipping hot chocolate, dreaming that I have time to try all the neat projects pictured in this attractive 193-page magazine!
Here is a sample of the many, many projects available in the online Somerset Studio:
- French Linen by Vanessa Spencer
- je t’aime journal by Vanessa Spencer
- Monthly Ephemera Drawer by Vanessa Spencer
- Calendar Keepsake by Vanessa Spencer
- Love for Art Organizer by Vanessa Spencer
- Everything Ephemera by Vanessa Spencer
(I like the word “ephemera.”)
A visit to the The Shoppe at Somerset is an experience in itself “…more than 3,000 unique art and craft supplies…”! There is also the Digital Ephemera artisan downloads shop: downloadable art images for mixed-media and papercrafting.
