CANDLES ARE THE ORDER OF THE DAY......

We had a fun show at Harrogate 'Stamperama', and it was lovely to chat with old friends and make new friends.  Candles were the 'thing' for me during the show, which I decorated (thanks to Sally Holmes) with stamped and coloured tissue.  I used some fantastic new (to me) pens to colour the stamped images (much more about the candles and pens on our December 3rd Hochanda shows - one not to be missed for sure!!).

Here are three 'Christmas' candles from the show....




However the most popular stamp during the show was Happy Cat, CI-523, which was a total sell out, and here is one of Flo's beautiful cards that wowed our lovely customers.....

Oooooooo MORE AMAZING MACABRE MAKES....

Continuing with the Halloween Macabre Theme, here are some more stunners from the CI Teamies.  I have just this morning received this beauty from Dora, with extra drawing added to the Howling Wolf, and what a clever beauty this is, using several CI spooky stamps including the two newest ones CI-528 and CI-529.....


Managed to get this one extra large so you can see all the amazing details within!

Sylvie and Helen have also played with several stamps in fantastic combinations, worthy of framing for sure!....




Very different and very glorious!

Then here are another couple of stunners from Sylvie.....





Pretty in pink. Showing that a Howling Wolf doesn't have to be used just for Halloween!

Next an amusing journal page by Chris - love those funny journal pages Chris....


Two more cracking makes from Helen, with truly fabby backgrounds....



....And finally, thanks to Sally Holmes and her very cool candles (scroll down for candles), I'm a bit obsessed with candle decorating again now.  This one definitely spooked me last night when I put it together - look into the eyes, look into the eyes....


More candles to come me thinks!

Thanks for commenting folks - makes it all worthwhile.  And thanks for the 'Cloud' of Bats Pat - nice one.

Back soon,

MACABRE MAKES....

I know it's an acquired taste, and not everyone's cup of tea, but here at Crafty Individuals we do love a bit of gothic in our lives from time to time.  With that in mind, along with the up and coming arrival of Halloween, we had a couple of designs drawn for us by the very talented Maria Kitano featuring a howling wolf and moon, and a skull with roses.  Loving them both, and here are the stamps themselves followed by a couple of makes by myself and also by Sandra - so clever Sandra!  I still haven't got my new glasses, so it's another post without many words!....







These grandly gruesome stamps are on special offer at the moment right here: https://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/new-products

In the top two makes I also used items from CI-361, including that fab barbed wire element, plus a dinky bats stencil by That's Crafty, which you will find by clicking here.

ZENTANGLES BY ELLIE, AND MAKES BY THE TEAM..

Mostly pictures of makes on here this evening, rather than words.  My son sat on my prescription glasses by accident and broke them completely, oh dear!  I'm trying to manage with cheap magnifying glasses until I get my new ones, and it's tricky to say the least!

As you probably know by now, we have some stunning new stamps available now designed by lovely young Ellie, and our amazing team have been doing their usual amazing creations with the new stamps, plus a couple of creations using some slightly older designs.  You will find the new stamps right here....  https://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/new-products

Here are just a few of the many creations created tonight from Flo, Isa, Dora, Helen, Sandra, Sylvie and myself...


 







Oh my, so loving it all!
Lots more to come

As promised in today's CI Newsletter tonight's Blog Post is full of Sneaky Peeks.  We are in the Hochanda studios on Tuesday, 1st October, with CI shows at 8am and 3pm, UK time.  Lesley and myself will be demoing again, and Lesley has CB shows at 10am and 2pm too.

THANK YOU AND MORE....

Thank you all of you who so kindly leave comments at the end of my blog posts, we really appreciate you taking the time to do this, and I absolutely agree we do have the best teamies in the land, probably in the known universe and well beyond.  Thank you best teamies, you are amazing!!

Malcolm, Monty and I are having a few days away again very soon, so this is a fairly brief post from me (still lots to do and get on top of), but with some colourful and creative artwork to show. 

A beautiful make by Isabelle....


A bright and cheery make by Sylvie....


I think the following gentle beauty is by Flo....


And lastly 2 makes by yours truly.  Firstly a collage made for our last Hochanda shows....


Plus a card - put your sunglasses on - it's bright, but I do rather like this one all the same!..


Thanks for reading,

Back soon,
