" Black and White "

You can go for whatever type of papercrafting you wish, for any occasion whatsoever, in any size or shape you desire - ANYTHING so long as you stick with the colour theme.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week. Firstly, our good friend Crafty Emma

with the chance to win a voucher worth £10 to spend in her store, along with $15 Gift Certificate from our new sponsor Amber Ink.

AmberInk was started by a mother and daughter team. Amber lives in the East, Pam lives in the West. Amber is an Emmy nominated children's animator and illustrator, who creates from her Brooklyn, New York studio. Although they do carry some clear stamps, the company runs by the premise that their customers are more brilliant than patient. If you've been a die-hard clear or rubber stamper, they can even help you with the transition to digital. And don't worry about asking a silly question, because as a retired public high school teacher, Pam has already seen it all. Check out the ever-increasing tutorial links, which you can find on the homepage. Hailing from the Hawaiian Islands, the Aloha Spirit is alive and well at

  • We are so very honoured to have some of Amber Ink's very own Design Team members join us as our guests for this week, using Amber Ink images and digital papers. Firstly Kirsi Kirjavainen, You can check out how she made this fabulous creation HERE.
