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.

March Challenge - Leap into Spring! and a Design Team Call

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it's March already?!?! Where is this year going??? For those of you who live in the UK and Europe, we are starting to get into Spring which is a welcome relief after Winter. It seems to have rained non-stop in the UK and many people have really suffered with floods. Its been such a hard Winter for so many. We hope you're all warm and dry now and on the mend. We're thinking of you all.

Hopefully, with Spring on the way the weather will get warmer. Which brings us to our next challenge which I'll get to in a minute. Firstly we need to announce the winner of February's challenge - Love is in the air. We had some gorgeous entries and we loved visiting your blogs and leaving comments for you. The winner of last month's Challenge is Paivi!! Your card was amazing and we'd love you to be our Guest Design Team member for April. If you could email me I'll give you the details of the next challenge. Congratulations.

Now, back to March's Challenge. This theme of this month's challenge is....

Leap into Spring!

And to add to the fun we're also looking for three talented peeps to join the Design Team. If you wish to be considered for the team please put the letters DT at the end of your name when you create your link. The Team will then check out your blog. The Design Team closes when the challenge closes and the successful applicants will be contacted soon after that.

You must have an active blog to promote Anonymous Stamps and be prepared to submit one project a month at the least.

For this month's challenge the Design Team have created some amazing pieces with the Spring theme...

Such bright and cheery projects. We'd love to see what you create with this theme! Here's how to join in the fun:

  • You must use an Anonymous Stamps image (they're free so that shouldn't be a problem)
  • Upload your creation to your blog and then provide a link to the blog post using the tool below.
  • No backlinking as these entries will not be accepted.
  • We also can not accept any entries that do not use an Anonymous Stamps image.

So get springing everyone! We want to see lots of Spring time inspiration and don't forget to put yourself forward for the Design Team. Take care everyone.
