ATC winner and trees swap posted

Hi All

Some stunning atcs for the Trees swap and an amazing variety of tree stamps too!
lovely to see some new players joining in. We had 25 in all including 2 players from the USA and one from South Africa!

The swaps have been posted today so I do hope you all enjoy the ones I have chosen for you.

Onto the winners atc

This gorgeous creation is from Jean Straw - the distressed stamping and inking caught my eye and the beautiful saying just clinched it! Jean has been a faithful player for the last year and always produces beautiful stamped atcs - I am sure if you have received her work its very treasured.

So well done Jean - I have popped a note in with your atcs about what to do next x

Please don't forget to change the Stamp man address in your diary as its now unit 11 instead of 10 - see the post below for the full address.

I look forward to receiving your Vintage atcs this month - please ensure they are at the stamp man by the 31st July.

Happy Crafting folks x

July ATC Swap - Vintage Theme

Hi All and welcome to Julys Atc swap here at The Stamp Man.
As you can imagine its been all systems go at Stamp Man HQ getting ready for the move next door. Ian has been busy making shelving and display boards whilst Jill and the girls pack pack pack! If you have been lucky enough to visit this last month you will surely have found many bargains to be had.
And its not too late to visit - Given some notice Jill and Ian can meet you at the warehouse so you can have a good old rummage but you must phone ahead as its not going to be manned all the time.
The move does also mean the address has changed and is now
The Stampman, Unit 11, Craven Nursery Park, Snaygill Industrial Estate, Keighley Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 2QR,
Not a huge change as its only gone from 10 to 11 but an important one as far as your swaps are concerned. Please make sure you change the address in your records.

So onto this months swap which is Vintage - a fabulous theme which is so adaptable to anyone's stash so i do hope you play along.

June's swap - trees will be sorted and posted this weekend so do stop by and f
ind out who has won and when they are on their way to you - some beauties I promise you!
Over to the DT for some vintage inspiration x
