Hi All

We had a wonderful display of artwork for the May Challenge, and thanks to everyone for making it a success!  Now it is already time for the June CI Challenge, and it would be lovely if you could join in and show us your wonderful work.  So firstly here are the guidelines, which will be followed by the subject matter.


To enter this month’s Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your project, following the subject material outlined below (your project should include at least one Crafty Individuals product please), then:

Post your challenge project on your blog, before the 25th of the month, and include a link back to this blog,

Leave a link in the URL box to take us directly to your challenge project, etc. – which will then appear here on this blog as a thumbnail image – so we can all see your wonderful work.

At the end of the month the CI team and/or guests will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice.

Go for it and enjoy the challenge x

This month's subject has been chosen by Sue Abbott and is a vintage project, which must have a heart shape incorporated somewhere within it.  Sue will also be in charge of choosing the five 'winners' this time around.  As inspiration she has made a beautiful concertina book which can be seen in all its glory on her blog HERE, so do check it out as it is so gorgeous.  This is the very pretty front cover and one inside page only:

Sue has also sent images of some other delightful projects that also fit the bill:

Now I will show you images from the other member of the 'team', and I hope you find them inspiring:

Firstly one from myself - a very girly hanging:

Then a really lovely decorated box and contents made by Lucy Edmondson:

and the contents:

An amazing bag made by Zuzu:

And the view from the side (with a heart):

Now one of Isabelle's always lovely creations, and if you check out her blog now you will find step by step instructions for this card too:

Helen in her usual imaginative way has come up with a different use for one of our new badges and made a lovely little necklace:

Ginger has made a delightful 'heart' hanging:

And Crafty Tassy has made a lovely and colourful card:

Hope you have found the images inspirational, please do join in and we will be using the same 'InLinkz' system as before.  Don't forget your project should include at least one of our products please.

Entries can be linked in to this blog starting from today until midnight on 25th June.  Have fun!

Sue's theme is a fabulous one and I am sure this will prove to be an incredibly popular challenge.
Her DT samples are beyond stunning, your hanging is so, so pretty and that bag is a brilliant take on the theme.
Must get busy!!
