MANY MAKES FOR CHRISTMAS....

The last couple of weeks have gone very fast indeed, and hence I haven't blogged till now.  The time leading up to Christmas always seems to disappear quickly and I guess everyone feels the same - so much to do and so little time left.  Its even more worrying when everywhere you go everyone asks 'are you ready for Christmas', and I never am really.  I hope you are all enjoying the festive season so far, and I hope Santa is good to you this year.

I have many photos of makes that have been sent to me by our lovely team, saved ready to display.  I will upload several below for you to peruse.  Most are Christmas related, and I will mention a few links to specific stamps, but maybe not all.  However as always you will find most items displayed available at www.craftyindividuals.co.uk.  Hope you will enjoy the show!

Some beauties by Lynne are here to start with...



Loving the two 'Wishes' cards above - stamped with CI-408,
And then the next card using CI-425.... 




And then this little treasure in red, featuring CI-424..


Carrying on with the festive theme I have some gorgeous round cards made by Sylvie....






As you will see they feature a couple of the stamps mentioned above, plus the first make also shows the lovely robin drawn by Alice CI-375, and they all have Gio's stamp CI-426 embossed beautifully around the edges - such a very versatile stamp (as you will see below too)!

Next we have great minds that think alike - Gio and Laury have used CI-426 themselves to great effect and made wrapping paper - lovely for Christmas, but also for birthdays and other gifts as well...




Effie took the same stamp and made a very pretty festive decoration.....

 
CI-425 also makes another appearance, in a delightful creation by Helen...



And Helen has also made this very sweet little robin tag, again mentioned and linked to above....



To finish off the post tonight I have some images of a lovely 'memory' book created by Coco - what a lovely Christmas gift a book like this would make, perhaps for a loving granny?!...








  Lots of CI products to be found here within!
 
Back now to my wrapping and card writing.  Thanks for tuning in, back soon,

Beautiful projects from the DT! I have a weakness for doilies and the stamps are indeed perfect for wrapping paper. As to Christmas it's crept up on me and I am soooo late!

The doilies look so pretty stamped on the kraft wrapping paper.
I am inwardly groaning as I still have so many gifts to wrap. Have never left it as late as this!
Wishes
