My name is Julia Guainiere and I run Simply Stamps.  I started the business in 1997.  At that time I was a teacher.  My daughter had just been born and I wanted to be able to work from home.  For a time I did some home tutoring.  I had a selection of used rubber stamps which I no longer used so I decided to advertise them for sale in Crafts Beautiful.  I got such a good response to the advert that I began to buy stamps in from various companies and advertise them by sending out a monthly catalogue featuring all the stamps for sale that month.  Thirteen years later I still run the 'Simply Stamps Friends Club' and have a database of customers, some of whom date back to the beginning.  Obviously the trend now is to buy on-line which when I started did not exist.  So I started www.stampersupermarket.co.uk.  

Once again the very talented girls on the Design Team have worked their special magic and come up with gorgeous cards for your inspiration


















We look forward to seeing all your swirly creations this week.....
Happy Crafting Everyone
Hugs from the Design Team
