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.

Happy New Year! Happy New Challenge for January!

Hi Everyone,

Karyn here again. The time has come for the first challenge of the year! We thought we'd ease you in gently after all the madness over Christmas and New Year. This month's challenge is Anything Goes! But firstly we need to announce the winner of last months challenge. Congratulations to number 47 Lorianna!! Please contact us within 48 hours to claim your prize!

Not only that but Sian has created two new fabulous images this month but, like all the other images on the blog, they are free!! We'd love to see what you create with them! Here they are...

Football Lizzie

Glamour Boots
The design team has also been hard at play (well it can't possibly be work!) and have created some gorgeous creations....

For the challenge you must use an Anonymous Stamp image. They're free so that shouldn't be an issue. Using the Linky Tool below, your creation needs to be posted to your blog and include a link to the Anonymous Stamp blog. No backlinking as this will not be entered into the challenge.

For the lucky winner of the challenge you have the opportunity to get your style published, experience of being on a Design Team and your name out in the blogging community by being a Guest Design Team Member for the following month. So for this challenge the winner will be the Guest Design Team Member for March 2014's challenge. The closing date for the challenge is the 31st of January, 2014.

Have fun everyone! x x
