Sarah Anderson created this wonderful Assemblage by altering an old Altoid Tin
I just love working in a tiny format using a collage style and this gorgeous stamp from Crafty Individuals gave me my starting point for this project. Vintage typewriters speak to me of times when written notes abounded, unlike the emails of today. I distressed my painted tin with the sanding tool we were using whilst decorating, and also bashed it with a hammer to give it that old, worn look that a typewriter ribbon tin may now have. The insides of envelopes make great collage fodder. The tin stores tiny tags and cards, coloured and stamped with a variety of inks, and finished with Small Talk stickers. These can then be popped in an envelope to a friend or slipped in their pocket for some warm, creative encouragement.

Craft Stamper Printables!
We are thrilled to be launching our brand new printables series this month. Each month, Craft Stamper will be sharing one (or sometimes 2!) totally free sheets of elements, all ready for you to print off and use in your art.
We’ll have a mixture of images, backgrounds, sentiments and templates for you to play with, all created by the Craft Stamper team. Have a great idea for a printable element? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
This month, we have ready to print versions of our exclusive autumnal images, a selection of sentiments and a really useful ATCoin back for you to use. We also have some stunning textural pics, images photographed by our own Jaine! We have small sizes that fit perfectly onto an ATCoin, and as our bonus sheet this month, the pics have been scaled up for larger projects!
We can’t wait to see what you all create using our printables, so feel free to share on our facebook page, or email our team a picture at: editor.cs@mytimemedia/com. We’d love to take a peek!
