Picking Favourites...

Hello everyone, Alison (butterfly) here.  I hope you're enjoying seeing everyone's top picks from their Artistic Stamper year... I certainly am.  Much harder when it comes to picking my own favourites, though.

Not sure this is a definitive top 3, but they are all projects that mean a lot to me. And it seems to be texture, women and butterflies; blue, green and brown... no surprises there to anyone who knows me!

First a project which was actually made as a Guest Designer, before I joined the team full-time, but I suspect it was instrumental in getting me the invitation to become a full team member, so I wanted to honour it here!


It's hard to capture in a couple of photographs, so if you missed it and would like to see more, you'll find it here.


Next, a tag which somehow felt very much like "me".  It has one of my favourite ever backgrounds, and the images, words and colours came together without very much thought - always a good sign, I think! 


Again, if you'd like to see it in more detail, it's here.


And I was really torn for the last entry in the trio.  Should it be the Place for Keepsakes?  Should it be my much-loved In The Undergrowth hanging board? Or Create? I am creating! using my favourite corrugated cardboard?  But in the end, I plumped for these journalling pages ... the first time I understood that you really are allowed to do whatever you want on a journalling page!


And the Gibson Girls have served me well on a number of projects, so it's only fair that they get a look-in in the top three!  You can see more details here.


Thank you so much for stopping by at this busy time - I hope you've enjoyed re-visiting some of these.  I wish you all a wonderful festive season, and here's to a fabulous 2014 for all!

I'd find it hard to pick 3 of my favourites of yours, Alison. But the butterflies would definitely be up there.
