Somerset Studio Gallery & The Stampers’ Sampler










I’m on my way home today from CHA (details here) so I thought I’d share a few happy mail days I had last month.  I received the new Somerset Studio Gallery and was thrilled to see they’d published a tag I submitted quite a long time ago to them, for a challenge piece I’d made for Linda Coughlin’s Frilly and Funkie blog.











The Stampers’ Sampler arrived last week with Tim Holtz’s gorgeous cover art, and I was thrilled to see my friend Lynne Moncrieff’s name on the cover right above Tim’s! Lynne is frequently published and has a very active blog ~ be sure to visit to see her beautiful art.   My contribution to this issue was three stenciled birds I created for their last template challenge.

Thank you for the visit!  I can’t wait to share about my trip.



Your comments are very much appreciated!


  1. Congratulations Marjie! I’m sure we’ll be seeing your name on the covers before too long ! Love your style x

  2. A huge congratulations on being published in the Somerset publications – such a well deserved honor! Your work is always so much fun – love those stenciled birds. Thanks for the F&F link too!


  3. Yay Marjie! YOU GO GIRL! Congrats on being published in Stamper’s Sampler! Very deserving. Your pieces are awesome. I wanted to say thank you so much for the sweet comments you left on my blog about my last piece for SSS. Coming from you, that means so much to me. I am SOOOOO excited that I finally got to meet you in person at CHA. You are such an amazing artist and an even cooler person. 🙂 It was love at first sight! haha I am looking forward to a long and creative friendship! <3 Candy

    I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to see your art in Somerset Studio Gallery and then the latest Sampler. All are amazing but those birds are sooooo very Marjie!
    You sweet woman. You have always been so encouraging and supportive, I cannot thank you enough. Still slightly surreal that my name is mentioned beside Tim Holtz – I am sure I will wake up soon to find it was all a dream!
    Wishes to you
