Launched with a small line of rubber stamps by President and
Publisher Kellene Giloff, the company has since expanded
to include more than 1,500 stamp images and best-selling
publications, including The Stampers’ Sampler, Somerset
Studio, Belle Armoire, Somerset Memories (formerly Legacy),
Art Doll Quarterly, and Take Ten.
Known for their stunning full-color photography and stepby- step instructions, Stampington & Company’s publications provide a forum for both professional artists and hobbyists to share their beautiful handmade creations with one another.
Since its 1997 debut, Somerset Studio has become the flagship publication within the art and crafting industry. This bimonthly magazine attracts a large and devoted following of readers seeking the latest innovations in the art of paper and mixed-media.
The Stampers’ Sampler is a quarterly publication filled with hand-stamped artwork contributed by readers and accompanied by detailed instructions.
Belle Armoire is a semiannual publication that features fabric arts, handmade garments, creative jewelry, and accessories. Belle Armoire has become known for showcasing the very best handmade wearable art.
Art Doll Quarterly is a unique full-color publication devoted to the art of making creative dolls and sculptural figures out of cloth, clay, an assortment of embellishments such as beads and found objects, and mixed-media materials.
Take Ten, sister publication to The Stampers’ Sampler, was launched as a special publication but quickly proved to be so successful that it is now available on a quarterly basis. It features rubber stamped cards that can be made quickly — in most cases, under 10 minutes.
Publications launched in 2010 include Prims, a triannual publication showcasing the rustic elegance of primitive, folk, historic, or early Americana style artwork, Jewelry Affaire, a quarterly publication devoted to sophisticated and attractive jewelry that is both easily and artfully made, and Where Women Cook, a quarterly publication featuring the heart of the home — the kitchen, with creative storage ideas, eyecatching décor, and recipes.
Mingle, a quarterly publication featuring art retreats, workshops, and other artistic events, was launched in 2011. Launched in 2013, Where Women Create Business provides an in-depth look at the professional lives of the most influential entrepreneurs and inspiring artisans, providing tangible and qualified takeaways that readers and professional-minded people of all levels can apply to their own businesses.
Additional titles that were launched as special publications but are now available on a quarterly basis include Altered Couture, Somerset Life, Belle Armoire Jewelry, GreenCraft Magazine, Where Women Create, Artful Blogging, Art Journaling, Jewelry Affaire, and Where Women Cook.
