Welcome to Arty Cow.
From my studio in the South Coast of England I design, make and sell handmade travel journals, books, scrapbooks binders, and organisers.

All items can be bought directly from my Etsy store where you can also add customisation options.

Each item is handmade to order. If you want something that is not shown here or in the Etsy store, contact me to discuss your requirements.

I am designing new travel journals all the time so be sure to check into the shop to see whats new.

DT Announcement & a FUN Challenge

Happy Monday♥
Say hello to the current members of the Anonymous Stamps Design Team! These ladies are all extremely talented and will be creating projects to serve as inspiration for our monthly challenges! Make sure to stop by their blogs and say hi. :)          

Marcee Rodgers
Hi, I’m Marcee Rodgers and I write the iNKY Bird blog to inspire creativity and share my passion for paper-crafts. I've been paper-crafting for over 7 years and love Clean & Simple, negative space and coloring images. I'm a former scrapbooker turned card maker. I live in the Portland, Oregon area with my husband and 2 children. I am extremely blessed to be a SAHM.

Beverley Metcalf
I am a wife and mother (one teenage girl). I have been crafting now for about 7 years and feel that I still have lots to learn. Predominately I am a card maker but have dabbled in scrapbooking, returning to card making as my preferred option, also I like to make ATC's. I am a lover of digi stamps due to the versatility and the ability to make the stamp the required size. Alongside the card making I work part time and am currently studying for an NVQ in team leading and am also doing a short University course on Social psychology.

Sandra Carey
Hi my name is Sandra an I live in Pembrokeshire, South Wales and I am married to a very supportive husband with 2 gorgeous sons and a mad dog I love to create cards and 3d projects with my Cameo and share ideas with people I am mainly a card maker but love all sorts of crafts.

Karyn Wheatley
Hi, my name is Karyn and I'm originally from the outback of Australia but have been living in the UK for about 15 years. I live in Coventry with my fiancé, Trace, my son, Ethan and our 2 and 3/4 cats, Utah, Tinky Winky and Jenny-boo. Jenny-boo is the 3/4 cat as she's only got three legs but that doesn't stop her at all and she can run rings around the other two! I also work full time. I've been crafting since I was about 11 with various different crafts but got into card making when I came over to the UK and have been hooked ever since. I love using digital stamps with the flexibility they give me and colouring them with my alcohol markers. I like to decoupage images and make home decor items for my home and am in the process of setting up an Etsy shop. Feel free to follow me as I love to blog and chat.

Zoe Parkin
A little about me. My name is Zoe but most friends and family know me as Ziggy. People think I am a little quirky, I like to do things differently. I am 39 and a mum to two lively little boys. I have always crafted and tried my hand at most crafts
I love to colour digitally at the moment and then make things like canvas', bags, t-
shirts, custom blackboards, home furnishings.
I love to try new ways of showcasing what I do, I would love to turn my hobby into a 
business eventually. I have a blog which I update reguarly, and recently I have discovered the world of 
blog competitions/showcases and love it.

Helen Bowden
I live in York with my three girls and one slightly insane hamster, I’m a stamper at heart and I have a large collection of digi and rubber stamps. I also love playing with my Silhouette Cameo, my melt pot and making jewelry.

Michelle Dees
My name is Michelle Dees. I live in Theilheim Germany now for 19 years. I was born in the Netherlands. I am married and have two wonderful kids. I love crafting as long as I can remember. I love to make cards with digital stamps. Before I found those great tamps I made cards with the 3D technique. For about two years I started with scrapbooking our photos. If I have time I make those pages too.

And this is me
Sian Evans
