I am going to post the September Challenge winners this evening - and about time too I can hear you say!!  However firstly if you have arrived here from The Craft Barn Blog - during your Tando Blog Hop Birthday Bash, you need to leave a comment on my previous post (and check out my Tando and CI combination project) at:, before moving on to the next blog at: where you will also find your next link.  It sounds complicated but it really isn't - its fun, and there are giveaways to be won just for leaving comments!!  And there are some very kind comments so far indeed - so I guess you are all enjoying the hop experience.  This blog hop continues until next Sunday evening - so go get hopping!

Now on with the Challenge results.  Ginger (Carol) chose the theme of 'Last Days of Summer' and she has also kindly chosen her fave five participant projects, using Crafty Individuals products, from the thumbnails HERE.  And in no particular order here they are:

CHRIS DARK with her stunning art book layout:-

ELLY PIRALLY with this very intricate and adorable birdhouse:-

The last two images show how Elly went about making the roof 'tiles' - amazing!

KATIE K  with her beautiful double easel card: -

MYRA  with such a lovely teapot book: -

And RITA with a very pretty card indeed:-

Thank you all so much for entering this month, and do watch out for the next CI Challenge coming in November.  If the five ladies above would like to email us at: with your choice of stamp, we would be delighted to post them out.

I want to continue a little with a few more 'team' projects as my word they have all been so busy!  GINGER as well as judging the Challenge has been creating more lovely domino pendants with our glossy images:

You will find more info on her blog about how she created these beauties.

SYLVIE has made this totally gorgeous framed project -

Sylvie has used lots of our stamps in this such as CI-352, CI-357, CI-358, CI-268 and CI-292.  Totally fabulous colours and texture here!

Finally tonight BRENDA sent over a few images recently and I will say goodnight with this very pretty little tag -

CI-306 - the dressform, is taking centre stage here.  Lovely!

Just a quick mention too that we have a great special offer on our website at the moment at where we are giving away a brand new free Christmas star stamp, with orders over £15 before postage, and this is it:

 A great focal point for your Christmas creations this year!

Back soon,
