Many thanks to all who left a comment on my last post - it was great to read the lovely, lovely comments and to see how many of you would like to receive one of our candy goodie packages.  We chose a number between 1 - 97, and that number was lucky 24.  On counting down the comment list we found that number 24 is MARLIES - and if you could please email us at:, with your address, we would be delighted to post your delicious package to you.  Sadly there can be only one winner this time, but keep checking back for future blog candy posts!

As it is once more late at night for me this is just a short post.  However I have a few things to tell and show you.  We now have the lovely Tando clock blanks in stock which you will find if you scroll down the 'Must Have' page HERE.  There are three different shapes - the cuckoo clock, the round clock, and the carriage clock.  With prices ranging from £7.95 - £9.95 for a fully working clock these are a snip!  Team them up with one of our Clock Face Stamps to create a really gorgeous craft project - why not start making those Christmas presents now and amaze your friends this year?!  I haven't forgotten about the blog tutorial I said I would do on the cuckoo clock and Malcolm will be taking a few photos next week for me, so that I can put something together for you.

On another note if you have a copy of the current issue of Craft Stamper which you can purchase HERE, and you are an avid rubber stamper, you could be in with a chance of winning a huge selection of Crafty Individuals goodies (worth over £200) in the 'Stamper of the Year Competition'.  To enter you need to make one project using our products, then photograph it and email with some details to the Craft Stamper people before 31 August 2012.  Go on - give it a go!

Must show you some visual stuff before I sign out so here goes:

A very talented lady call Brenda from: sent over some images of a fabulous domino book project she has made with our products.  I love this!:

Do have a look at her blog for more images and info!  Thanks Brenda.

And to finish I have two 'team' projects to share.  Firstly a cool 4-way slide mailer by Lucy:

Lucy has used images from our People & Places Book 2 in her mailer.

Then a rather lovely box and card using our new rubber stamp CI-351 by Daniele -

Lovely thanks ladies!

Bye for now,

Congratulations Marlies you lucky lady. I love the slide mailer. Such a lovely use of those Victorian children pictures. Thanks for the heads up on the craft stamper competition. I'm not sure I am in the same league as the folk that share their beautiful projects here and other places but it's fun to join in and you never know!! I can't decide whether to buy the round or the cuckoo clock. Anyone have any thoughts? Maybe I should try both! Good idea. Waiting eagerly for your tutorial Jean to get a few tips. Thanks for such a great site, products and blogg.
