What I did on my holidays, by Lisa, aged......21 + some

On my holidays this year I decided to pack light craft-wise (so just half the car then.....well, the kids don't need clothes, right?), no I really did. I prepped a concertina journal, packed a batch of Stampotique stamps and a mini alphabet, plus pens and........ I made a journal!

I haven't showcased it yet, but today is a special occasion- my beloved Stampotique stamps are having a DT call. Be still my beating heart. Kinda like my dream job......only much, much better! What better way to indulge my obsession with these fabulous stamps? Before I resort to undignified begging, here's my holiday book- lots of photos and then I'll do the begging at the end of the post.....

 Game of the week on hols was Plants vs Zombies 2 on the ipads....... I was inspired.....

I added lots of pockets to put interesting bits and pieces in from places we visited and things we did 

Just like that..... he always reminds me of Tommy Cooper....

I am still in love with my Stampotique big bee, and it goes perfectly with my new Hexagons stamp acquisition....

I couldn't resist a spot of doodling.....

This next page came out so beautifully I didn't want to cover it up with much, so I went for a mini file folder.

Pull here, and when you do...... 

Did you spot the odd one out? Love those budgies :)

The real problem with Stampotique stamps is that I have so many favourites- these little monsters come out to play A LOT!

Love this one, it's bright and colourful, which is very me, with watercoloured images, a little quote and lots of cutting out- not that I like cutting out, but it works!

And finally- not Stampotique stamps, but it makes me smile, so.......


I know there's a lot here, but I wanted to show that I do bright, colourful and happy. I like to make things that make me smile, and I love words. Stampotique stamps fit my style perfectly, they're versatile, quirky and the stamps that I just keep coming back to. I try to view things a bit differently and use my stamps in different ways too.

As for joining the Stampotique DT- talk about dream team..... it would make my day, month, year! The Stampotique DT is THE team to be on, and to represent these amazing stamps would be my absolute ideal, dream come true, best thing ever.... am I gushing too much? Well, I'm just happy to be in the mix and to be considered :)


  1. What a fun journal! Looks like a fun holiday!
