CHALLENGE CATCH UP INSPIRATION....

I need to bring you some more Challenge inspiration, as time is passing quickly, and I've still got lots to show you.  Check out our September Challenge HERE, and it would be great if you could join in - we are sooo looking forward to seeing your entry!

All the team have been busy creating such lovely 'Last Days of Summer' crafty stuff for us all to see.  Here is a beautiful display of perfumed sachets and deliciousness by Gio!





Along with lots of CI products and images Gio has used lovely TAP to transfer the main images onto fabric - Lush!  And whilst I am on the subject of lushness Gio has also posted some other lovely items on the Craft Barn Blog using TAP and our images - here is a peek -



How clever is she?!  The Craft Barn is also a great source of lots of crafty goodies, have a look HERE - and they also sell our products - so they must be fantastic!!!

Daniele sent us a very cool and quirky book that she made for the September Challenge with a seaside theme, and the fun birds from CI-349 ...





Lovely book, and cleverly made - maybe you could ask her to share her bookmaking secrets with you, as to how she put it together?!  These are the background papers she made before they were glued down:


Lucy has been busy with CI-348 to make her funky crackly crafty project:


Nice one for the kitchen, or wine cellar?!! (I wish!).

And Brenda has made quite a few of her amazing projects for us recently and here are another two on the Challenge theme -

Firstly a chunky postcard, with our seaside stamps CI-272 and an early stamp CI-119 -






And another flat postcard, again using CI-119 - lovely colours!


Sue has also been busy, and if you check out her blog now she has also been having fabby fun with our new masks too it seems!  Anyway she sent over some images of the Challenge themed items she has made and I will pop one of the items below, and save the others for the next post - beginning to run out of posting energy now!



How lovely do those butterflies from CI-347 look in this frame?!

And so this is my last lot of image uploads for this evening - such a beautiful use of those adorable elephants from CI-351, and see how Sylvie has used one of the elements on this mini plate to make that lovely flower!!!




Great colour scheme Sylvie!

Thanks to the brilliant CI Team for these inspiring images - love 'em!

Still more to come ......

You have still got a day to leave a comment on my last post, to be in with a chance of winning over £70 worth of goodies!

p.s. I had a comment asking for moderation rather than verification. Well I gave it a try but unfortunately it played havoc with my computer systems for some reason, so had to switch back to verification - sorry!
