Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Here are the creations by our Guest Designers this week:

So, now it's up to you again, we would love to come and visit your creations again. If you are 15 or younger, please include your age again in your name, collect a special badge here and contact us for a little prize from Jo (2 digistamps or a paperpack).

Don't forget to contact us to claim your prize if you have won one of our challenges or to collect your badge if you made our Top 3 here! We only will respond to people who get in touch with us and will not go looking for you! (Sorry, a bit too busy to do that). If prizes have not been claimed by 8pm GMT the day prior to the next challenge going life (so for our current winners, see post below, next week), we will do another draw and you will forfeit your chance for the prize advertised.

Have fun with our challenge and good luck!
