Bugaboo Stamps
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay As if raising five children in the  frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! If your taste runs to rubber (and  you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!


Hi, I’m Alison, and I live in France.  My first memories of crafting are from my Primary school days, when we made felt animals, did some basket weaving and painted on glass. I have always enjoyed sewing and knitting, and when my children were small I made clothes for them and for my daughter’s dolls, although Action Man got a few jumpers as well. After I retired from teaching I started making cards for family and friends, but it was when my son helped me set up my blog, last July, that I became addicted to card making. I now spend a great deal of time in my craft room – it’s my own little haven.
I’m so pleased to have the chance to be a Guest Designer with Love to Create this week, when they celebrate their 2nd Birthday Anniversary.
