Put Your Stamp On It January Pinworthies

Hello everyone, it's Deb back again to share the Creative Guide's Pinworthy choices for our January 'Put Your Stamp On It' challenge ... and as is always the case we had a very difficult decision to make!  So many wonderful entries, we can't thank each and everyone of you enough for taking the time to participate in our challenges ❤

And so without further ado here, in no particular order, are our 3 Pinworthy Mentions.  I will be sending you your Pinworthy badge to display on your blogs shortly and we will be pinning your beautiful creations to the A Vintage Journey Pinworthies board on Pinterest!

We loved Craftyfield's wonderful bright and vibrant colours with all of that lovely stamping in the background and I personally adore her little speckled bird on that scrap of muslin!

Hazel's beautiful calming monotone colour palette combined with all of that lovely stamping caught all of our eyes ♥

IrinaR took our challenge on completely by using nothing but stamps on her beautifully composed journal pages, we love it!

Once again, thanks to each and everyone of you who entered our January challenge and we hope that you will also consider entering our February challenge 'Your Hearts Desire' where Annie would like to see hearts as the main focus of your entry.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Deb and the Creative Guides
