A FINE ARRAY OF LOVELINESS...

I've had a grand day out today with Lesley Wharton, of Chocolate Baroque!  We went to 'Art in the Pen' at Skipton, and saw lots of arty crafty loveliness on display, as well as drinking coffee and eating a little cake, of course.  All very inspiring and exciting!!  Do visit the show another time if you get the chance, you won't be disappointed.

I have put a few lovely makes on Facebook recently, and I will repeat them below with links, as it's nice to see them again I think.  I'll also post other beauties alongside.  My first makes are by Coco, and very beautiful they are too...





Appearing in the above are stamps CI-270, CI-463, CI-399, CI-254 and CI-182 
(and more..)

Then this below is a beauty by Sandra, with another following...



Flamingos are from CI-473, and CI-254 again follows.  The background in the second is one of our new sheets from the pack you will find HERE.

Here I have three lovelies by clever Willy...




The beach girls are from CI-284, the Flamingo is again from CI-473, and the rose from CI-470. Other stamps appear in the background and are all from the CI collection.

Then I have a few other arrays of loveliness....

This gorgeous card by Flo in shades of blue...


The cottage is again from CI-463 and the robin features in CI-456.

Finally I have two very pretty cards by Daniele...



The first shows CI-345 off stunningly and the second features that adorable rose again CI-470. Background papers are again by us.

Thanking you too for joining me on my creative wanderings again this evening.

Back soon,

THE WINNERS OF THE GLORIOUS GIVEAWAY AND AN EXPLODING BOX AND MORE.....

It's high time we picked the winners from the comments on my last blog post, in the Glorious Giveaway!  The numbers 26 and 33 came out of the hat today, and on counting down (from the 57 comments that we had), number 26 is Jane Castle, and number 33 is Gerrina.  As it happens I think both ladies regularly leave comments, so that's nice too.  Well done both, and please decide on the Crafty Individuals own products that you fancy to the value of around £25 or thereabouts.  Then email us at: info@craftyindividuals.co.uk with the list and your addresses and we will post off the items immediately.  How exciting!

We had also better have a bit of visual inspiration on the blog tonight too, and as I recently received images of this rather gorgeous exploding box from teamie Joanna, I thought I would share this with you all below....








Joanna has used images from our People & Places 2 mini image book in her beautiful make, along with our new A4 background papers, which first appeared on our recent Hochanda show, but are now available on our website too, and are rather lovely, even though I say so myself (I've just been playing with them tonight in my little craft room).

Thank you Joanna!

How about this divine tag too by Sylvie, which goes nicely with the box above as it is floral and fabulous and nicely pink....


There are a few of our stamps which appear on here including the most recent Flower Heads Elements plate, along with the curly word 'Friends', which looks rather lovely here too.  Thank you Sylvie!

This might be an appropriate moment to show you a little vase that I decorated a little while ago as well, as it is rather 'pretty in pink' as well.....


Thank you to everyone who left comments last time, and to those of you who leave comments tonight, you are all fabulous and I wish we could send goodies out to you all, all of the time.  However - note to self - we must have another giveaway soon!

Thanks for popping by tonight,

Back soon,

Jean xx
