TWO CANDY WINNERS AND MORE.....

Thanks to the 39 who left lovely comments on my last post - we have picked 2 random peeps this week who have won the 2 new stamps and the pack of new background papers for themselves!  The lucky peeps are: Crafty Di (comment no: 17) and Nadou (comment no: 22).  Well done folks! Will you please email us at: info@craftyindividuals.co.uk with your addresses and we will get your goodies dispatched to you asap.

Next we have a few makes that you may have seen on the last tv shows.  A simple seaside treasures card..


CI-496 features here stamped onto one of our new background papers.

You may also have seen me putting together a journal page with the featured stamps, well here it is finished...


....Followed by an easy peasy card with a couple of our glossy images and some stamped wording, again on one of the new background papers...


Here are 3 lovely cards featuring CI-497, and made by Sandra and Flo - just love them!!


And finally on a Safari (CI-390) note, I thought I would show you two more of Lisa Vipas' makes (following on from my last post) - love the way she combines different stamps and elements together so colourfully and beautifully....



Thanks everyone.

Back soon,

p.s. A couple of you have asked where the journal I used in the demos was from.  You will find it here on our website.

NEW STUFF, NEW BLOG CANDY, AND MORE...

Had a blast in Peterborough at Hochanda, followed by a couple of days in the full on heat (and it was soooo very hot!) of central London with a bestie!  Now back and new stamps and papers on the site, had to get them on quickly as you were asking for them! Nice opening offers too! If you leave a cool comment at the end of this blog post before next Wednesday, we will put your name in a draw and 2 lucky winners will receive the 2 new stamps and the new background papers below (CI-496 and CI-497)...




Here are a few of the beautiful samples from our fabulous teamies that appeared on the shows.  We have lots more to photograph and to follow, so do keep checking back...




Plus another beauty from Sandra...


And to finish I have two customer makes that I fell in love with today.  The first by Liza Vipas...



And the second by June Ballenger....


Thanks so much ladies for allowing me to share your pieces of gorgeousness tonight!

Don't forget to leave your comments folks.

Back soon,

FAMILY FAVOURITES ON HOCHANDA...

I've just started packing my overnight bag getting ready to leave home for Hochanda in Peterborough at silly o'clock on Friday morning.  The demo boxes are all put together - mustn't forget my heatgun! The first CI show is at 3pm on Friday afternoon, and the second at 10am on Saturday.  Lesley will be helping me out again with her fabby demos, as well as having her own Chocolate Baroque shows on Saturday at 8am and 2pm.  Do join us for some fabulous and colourful and creative ideas on the 'Family Favourites' shows.  There will be some new stamp designs, new A4 background papers, and also prize giveaways on the shows as well as some really great deals with cool pick and mix choices.  All our stamps on our Hochanda shows are ready mounted (some cutting and trimming is all that is needed), we sell them unmounted online - you will just need your acrylic block and an ink pad to get cracking!  Here is a little sneaky colourful peak of what you can expect...


Here are the tv tuning in details...


Or you can watch via your computer at: https://www.hochanda.com/

Before I go I have just a couple of other colourful samples to share tonight, as I don't want to leave you without any inspiration on view.  These are created with love by Sandra...



Stamps used here include CI-495, and CI-430 and the backgrounds are from the thoroughly yummy brand new A4 papers - Wow!

Back soon,
