Now let’s discuss this release! But first I would like to introduce you to ISABELLE NORRIS, and her new line of stamps! Isabelle teaches in Bellaland and has a very unique and ECLECTIC taste which compliments the Bella Line beautifully! Mixed media is a brand new love of mine and I think these stamps are PHENOM for this! I know you will love it too…
Here’s a little bit about ISABELLE
“I’m Isabelle, 41, married to Bob (who is British) and mum of three fantastic kids (Julian, Antoine and Melissa).
I grew up in France, moved to England after meeting my husband and lived there for 12 years. End of 2008, we moved to Canada (Ontario) and we love it here.
I started crafting in 2001 with simple paper crafts, and started stamping in 2003 when I took my first class at the Craft Barn (Surrey, UK).
I quickly got hooked, took more classes to learn as much as I could. End of 2005, I started teaching, still at the Craft Barn for whom I still work as a website manager.
In 2006, I wrote a book (in French) about Distress inks which were a big favourite of mine. Book came out in 2007 and, even though I was still living in the UK, I started teaching in France on a regular basis (and in Belgium and the Netherlands too).
I have been published in France, the US and for the last 3 years, I have written over 40 articles for Craft Stamper magazine (UK). I’ve been very lucky to be on several Design teams including PaperArtsy, whom I want to mention as I learnt a lot from Leandra (owner). I did not stick to card making, I started scrapbooking (paper and digital, I love both equally), altering and have now stepped into mixed media as well.. I love working with inks and stamps and always use them in my work, but not essentially. I’ve turned into a technique junkie, learning more everyday using more mediums (paints, clay, metal …) and trying to find innovative ways to use them in my work and the classes I teach.
Last year, I met the adorable Emily and agreed to work with her to develop a new (non cute LOL) stamp line. We have been working on those for a while now and the baby is finally here: Eclectic stamps. A range of stamps I wanted to be as versatile as possible so they can be used in card making, scrapbooking, altering and mixed media. I really hope you will like them and I’m looking forward to seeing what you will do with them.
If you are going to Scrapfest, please come and say hi as I will be there with Emily and Helen!”
Now take a lookie at some samples using her stampies!They are amazing on CANVASES, cards and 3d items!
