ITS VERY NEARLY TIME TO START A NEW CHALLENGE.....

However we are not quite there yet, so I wanted to get this post in quick beforehand, as I had promised makes by Effie and Laury for my last post, and then got sidetracked.  So this is the post with makes with fairly new stamps by the two lovely ladies.  It won't be a long post, so do just join me quickly to feast your eyes on the projects below....

Firstly Effie has made some very beautiful seed packets - perfect for a friend who likes their gardening, or maybe they could contain wildflower seeds for the bees to enjoy!  She has also provided some photos to show you how the packets were made....







Rather a lovely idea methinks, and Effie has used stamps CI-411 and CI-407 to create her seed packets.

Now I have 4 makes by Laury - all of which are so very pretty.  The first two are using the last issue of stamps...



(Well maybe we can't call fish pretty, I agree, but then beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all!)

Loving that bookmark using CI-411 again, plus CI-410, and the fishes are from CI-412.

Then the second two are using stamps from the very latest issue...




I adore that beautiful key holder made with shrink plastic and fabric, and using Gio's lovely new stamp CI-419.  And the second make is a folder which would be great for doing your journalling in, and again using Gio's lovely stamps - perfect!

Thanks for dropping by,
Back again very soon with the August Challenge details.
