SNEAKY PEEKS...

Malcolm and I are driving down to Peterborough through the night on Monday night/Tuesday morning to be there for our first show on Hochanda at 7am, followed by another at 1pm.  So I thought I would quickly share a few sneaky peeks on here whilst getting everything ready, and before we set off.

Our latest new stamp creations were designed by a lovely collage artist called Sharron Bates, and will be released for the first time on the TV shows on Hochanda.  There will be some great deals and lots of demos, and we would be very happy if you could join us by viewing it all through your tellybox or on your computer!

The first two images below were original finished samples designed for us by Sharron herself using two of her brand new stamps...



Here are some more peeks of finished samples, you will see the actual samples on the shows themselves...







Thank you for all your support of Crafty Individuals.

See you on Tuesday

IT'S BEEN A WHILE.....

Eeeeek I haven't posted since Easter!  Where on earth does the time disappear to?!  This will be fairly brief, but I wanted remind you that we are running a Facebook Live session on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays currently.  All at 2.30pm UK time.  Even if you aren't on Facebook as such I think you can still watch the videos by scrolling down on this page: https://www.facebook.com/craftyindividuals/

Mondays are 'Show and Tell' days, Wednesdays are 'Demo Days', Fridays are 'Giveaway Days' as it stands at the moment.  My last demo (Wednesday) featured all things in simply Black & White.  Inspired by the cards below, last shown on Hochanda:


I went on to demo the following cards:



Simple stamped cards, just in purely black and white!

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU....

Strange times we are living in, but nevertheless we wish you all a Happy Easter and we hope the sun shines on you this weekend wherever you are.  Thanks for the support on Hochanda this week, you should get your purchases from us very quickly we hope, as everything has gone off from us now!  We are now in the process of getting the new stuff up online and hopefully will get a Newsletter out to you this weekend at some point, fingers crossed x

I have just been sent a beautiful Easter tag by Sylvie, plus she has forwarded some steps about how she made the background, with the brand new stamps, designed by our very own Flo, so now seems a good time to show it to you....









She made a beautiful master sheet there and trimmed to fit a tag shape.  Loving it all in pinks and yellows.

I also have some gorgeous cards and backgrounds by teamie Daniele next.  Made with the new stamps and papers, here they are...







I can't resist finishing off today by showing you this CAS card by Isa of our pretty Robin with a great background she created with the new stamps.  Lots more samples with the new stuff to come of course, but I'd better go and get on with uploading the new stamps and papers now..


Bye for now
Back soon,

Jean xx
