TRY 'BUILDING A MEADOW' USING CI-395.....

This post is all about CI-395, 'Build a Meadow', The Craft Barn's Extravaganza, and Helen Chilton's demos, particularly on Sunday, 8th June!!

Unfortunately we won't be there this year - Malcolm isn't quite up to the long drive down to the other end of the country yet because of his eyesight, but we are delighted that Helen Chilton will be demoing the tremendous possibilities when using one stamp set in particular - namely CI-395.  When Helen said this would be what she was doing this year, I had to have a play too.  So here we are with lots of images, which will hopefully inspire you to use this stamp, and also to visit The Extravaganza in June, as it promises to be a load of fun and a feast for the eyes.  Do let me know what you think of the samples, and also if you have plans to be there.  So sorry to miss it this time!

Here we go....

By Helen...






Then by moi (have also used the new masks - Birds in Flight, and Leafy Branches, now on the website, in some of these, plus two of the newest stamps CI-410 and CI-409 !)....

p.s. We have finally worked out how to get the 'New Products' button to work on the website homepage - yay!, please try it out HERE (far middle right) (only took a year and a half!!)

Will really miss you at the extravaganza, but as I am going on both days, look forward to seeing Helen and these lovely samples for real!

The Craft Barn's Extravaganza is the highlight of my crafty calendar and it will be sad not to see you there. At least Crafty Individuals will be represented and Helen is great company as well as a good demonstrator. Great summery samples too!

I was sad to hear you weren't going to be at the Extravaganza this year but it's good to know that Helen will be demoing your stamps and showcasing the 'build a meadow' set in particular. I look forward to seeing her.
