Sunday 13 September 2015


Just back from a few days staying in the Lake District - weather was amazing, which was a great bonus.  Lots of doggy walking and mooching around - very relaxing!

The September Challenge is in full swing now, with 18 days for you still to link in, and as 'Anything Goes' (as long as it contains a CI product) you have lots of ideas to choose from.  Check and link in on the appropriate post out by clicking HERE, and thanks for the entries so far, always appreciated.

Lots of makes coming in from the teamies, and here are a couple of very inspiring 'spooky' makes from Florence...

Perfect 'Halloween' cards in 'poisonous' and 'gruesome' green - lol!!  They feature:

Large Door – Gothic Door CI 249
Girl Witch – Childhood Friendship CI 277
Bottles – Poison and Danger CI 360
Wings and sentiment – Crow Plate CI 361
Background (yellow) – Inky Script Background CI 436
Crow - CI-319
Background - Abbey and Arches CI-286 

....and we love them.

Sylvie has made a couple of lovely colourful taggy pieces, and has kindly included a step by step for us on making the bases...

Sylvie has used the following (all mentioned from the CI Website of course):
For the blue tag I used :
CI-376 (duck), CI-380 (journaling), and CI-437(butterfly)
Assorted Laser Cut MDF Coqs
and Background paper book n°8

For the pink tag I used :
CI-441 (lady), CI-416 (birds)
Bronze gold flower charm, Bronze gold butterfly charm,
Die "delicate dragonfly" and die "floral branch"
and Background paper book n°8
Fine Cream cotton Cluny Lace
 And here are the photo steps...

My last delights of tonight are by Joanna - so pretty in neutrals and whites!  Joanna has used CI-443 embossed in white to make these beauties....

Many thanks ladies!

Back soon,

Beautiful tags by Sylvie...wonderfully creative. Especially the one with the Puffin :) Joanna's creations are soooo pretty. What a great way to use the Floral Festival on the second card.
Inspiring projects.
