BACK AGAIN WITH MORE GOOD STUFF...

We are in the depths of winter here - lots of snow, and brrrr cold!!!  Looking forward to Spring - roll on the daffodils!

Still we have crafting to keep us 'warm', and I have lots of images to share with you tonight.  'Monty Moodle' is on a starvation diet for 24 hours due to an upset stomach, and I feel so cruel not being able to feed him - he isn't a very happy puppy at all.  So I will do as much blogging as I can muster the energy for, whilst feeling so sorry for him down at my feet.

Nice to hear that you are enjoying the projects I show you, and the CI 'Team' are amazing and just keep them coming!

Brenda has sent me this beautiful image, created with the sewing themed stamp CI-328 - and I love it - great colours, stitching and collaged layout.  This will be uploaded next to the appropriate stamp on our new website very soon.


Brenda has also sent over some other great projects - fantastic!


Loving the Lacewing Butterfly diecut, with the pen nib body, and the use of CI-171, Harlequin Background, plus the Gothic Door stamp CI-249.


Another great collage using an early stamp Butterfly Ticket CI-005, and finally a tag using one of the new Alice Palace stamps - such fun designs!


Thanks Brenda.

I'm going to pop a little 'house' folding booklet that I made recently in here.  I got the idea from a back issue of Scrap 365, and made myself a template so that my class ladies could have a go too.






I used a small Tando frame around an image from our Nature's Beauty mini book in the centre.  And added stencilling through our Masks to the background, various stamps, and Dies.

Sylvie has been busy creating beautiful things with CI-346....




With some mask work, and white embossed images from CI-351 decorating the background.  Great flowers Sylvie!

Plus a second one - similar colours, but quite a different layout.  Stunning!



I think I will end tonight with two very pretty canvasses by Lucy, who has incorporated images from our People and Places 2 Mini Image Book very effectively.



Hope you have found some inspiration somewhere in this post - keep crafting, and have fun everyone!

Thanks for sharing all these, Jean - beautiful stuff all round! I didn't think, at first, that the Alice Palace were quite my style, but I love everything I see made with them... they're calling me!
