STILL ON THE CHALLENGE SUBJECT.......

We had a great time at the 'Stitches' trade show at the NEC last weekend, we met lots of our lovely retailers, and took lots of lovely orders - so hopefully our collection of stamps and stuff will be coming to a shop near you soon!!

Just before I crack on with ongoing Challenge inspiration I want to show you a few projects made by the 'Team' with the brand new stamps....

Firstly a pretty pastel affair by Helen using our Royal Bird CI-378 - beautiful! - and Helen has some more CI themed projects on her Blog at the moment.



Effie has been playing nicely with the new Alice Palace stamps which are fun and quirky and you are liking them lots indeed!




Loads of lovely bright colours that will certainly bring cheer to the recipients I'm sure!

And here we have that cheerful goose again on a piece of beer mat bunting by Carol -


And Love Lovely Life again this time by Daniele -


....Now back to the Challenge for February.  We now have 23 stunning entries all displayed for you Here - and lots of blogs with all their hidden treasures just a simple click away.

Brenda has been busily creating this absolutely beautiful book of goodies on the theme of 'For A Friend', using loads of our products (too many to link to before bed).  Have a browse around www.craftyindividuals.co.uk and see how many images you can spot on there.










Brenda has more piccies on her blog showing you how she went about decorating her book, so do have a look Here.

Finally for tonight I want to finish on a hearts theme with a beautiful card by Isabelle Norris (one of many projects by Isa that I have to show you over the next few weeks)...



This has a real 3 dimensional look to it - stunning.

Thanks everyone,

Back soon,

Jean x

ps  If you live in and around the Tees Valley area please make a note that I will be having a table of 'Make and Takes' at Strikes Craft Shop, in Northallerton, on Saturday 16th March.  An event not to be missed of course!!!

Really pleased to meet you at the NEC last week & all the samples you had on display were beautiful. Very excited on Saturday when the order I placed with you arrived in my shop Out Of The Blue. Not had a chance to have a play myself yet but can't wait!

Fantastic projects. Love that Royal Bird stamp, especially Helens project. I see you have embossing powder on the website now. Will this work with your stamps? I have tried before with standard powders and lose all the detail. Working on a little something for the challenge. Hope I get it done in time......
