NEW PRODUCTS AND MAKES.....

Thank you for leaving comments on my last post giving you the 5 chosen linked in entries for the April Challenge.  We will be having our next Challenge in June, and I do hope you will join us again!

If you are on the Crafty Individuals mailing list - which you can join via the Home Page on the CI website - you will have received a fairly recent email about our new Must Have products.  I thought I might now give you a bit of an update on those and show a few makes by yours truly (whilst listening to the Eurovision Song Contest in the background).

We have some rather lovely MDF products in stock now, such as these below, plus lots more which you will find HERE...



And this is a great plaque with 4 hearts to dangle, which I turned from this...


To this...




Very girlie and just perfect for the boudoir.  I used a sheet of background paper from our Travels in Italy book, and stamps from CI-335, and CI-340 and it was great fun to make.
I also had a play with one of the little MDF frames and decorated this little canvas with sprays and lace netting, ribbons and stamping....



Very pink!!

I also made a bathroom (or beach hut, or boat) bunting hanging from the MDF bunting...





I think this bunting will also be perfect to decorate for birthdays, parties or Christmas .... so watch this space!

Now as they are similar colours I will pop another couple of cards I made below on a beach/seaside theme...





Papers from our Seaside Background Book, plus stamps CI-278, and CI-295 as focal images.

I also have a couple of images left over from our February Challenge (February I hear you say - yes indeed- doesn't time fly).  This one was one of mine which didn't get posted at the time, featuring CI-338, and the lace stamp CI-350 ...




And for some reason I didn't get this beauty from lovely Lynne posted at the time either...



Not sure why, but better late than never of course. Lynne has used our Chunky Train Tag on her project.

My final images tonight are projects made by three of our lovely customers that I thought I would share with you here - a fabulous box by Julie at http://newnanny.blogspot.co.uk/ ...



- Plus two cool cards, the first by Sherry at http://bitsofcheer.blogspot.co.uk/...


And the second by Ruth Wagner...


Many thanks for sharing those ladies,

Back soon,
thanks for joining me,

Jean x

Beautiful new products Jean but it is in your artistic hands that they become something sensational.
Adore all those hangings and the pretty, summer colour palette you have been creating with.
Lovely makes from the CI customers and as for my card, I completely understand, where does the time go to?!
Wishes
Lynne
