Happy November peeps! So with a turn in the month it's time to introduce a brand new Featured Stamper here on A Passion for Papertrey but before we do that we want to extend a huge thank you to Debby for her fabulous projects during October. I'm sure you were as inspired by her work as we were!
And now, please give a warm welcome to our Featured Stamper for November....
We're delighted that Beverley will be joining us for the month! We're all big fans of her work and like us she's just a little but obsessed with PTI!! Beverley has long been been a supporter of the blog and were thrilled to meet her in person at our Make & Take a few weeks ago.
Let's find out a bit more about her shall we?!
1)How did you get into papercrafting?
As a small child I loved to create & make! I'd often sit and watch my mother & Nana sew and knit as they were both very creative people. My mother & I got into rubber stamping & making cards after a trip to a craft fair, not like the ones at the NEC but more of a country craft fair. My mum bought a woodblock stamp with a cats face, ink & embossing powder & then we were hooked!
2)How long have you been stamping for?
I must have been 12 or so when I got into stamping, so it'll be 20 years next year!
3)How did you get into PTI and why do you love it so much?
I first discovered PTI when I discovered blogging! That was in May 2008 just after my mother died. Dare I mention another rubber stamp brand...?! But it was through Hero Arts starting their blog that I became a blogger & found a world of inspiration & of course PTI
I love PTI because .....
1. They create clear stamps - I love to see what & where I'm stamping!
2. I like the clean graphic style of their stamps
3. I like how the sets all work well together
4. They produce good quality products!
4)What would you say is your stamping style?
I'm definitely a clean & simple kind of gal!
5)Do you have a favourite PTI colour or colour combo that just makes you drool?
My favourite PTI colour & combo. Hmmmm this is a difficult one as I do love their colours! If I had to pick one it would be Raspberry Fizz. It was the first colour I bought! However my fave colour combo at the mo is Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy & White!
6)If you had to choose just one PTI stamp set to keep, which one would it be and why?
ONE stamp set you hear me cry! Lol! That's another toughie! I prob have to say In Bloom. It was one of my first of many!
7)Who is your PTI Idol?
My first PTI idol is Dawn McVey, she has my dream job & I find her very inspiring. After meeting Nicole at CHA I'd say both of them are my idols!
8)Where do you get your inspiration from?
Everything has a lil bit of inspo to me! But I love blog hopping, magazines and nature.
9)What’s your stamping dream?
I want to be Nicole Heady! I want to create my own rubber stamp brand / company & be as BIG and wonderful as PTI but here in the UK! I'm not far off from my dream so watch this space!
10)Where can we go to check out more of your wonderful creations?
