Yipee! - the August edition of Craft Stamper is now out and is available to purchase on our website HERE!  There are lots of lovely articles as always, and it is a feast for the crafting eyes.  This month the subscription gift is a set of three new CI stamps (not yet issued by ourselves) plus a mini image book - definitely a great offer for a Craft Stamper/Crafty Individuals lover (the offer is worth £22.76) - so don't delay - subscribe today!

Here is a peak at the stamps on offer:

Plus the book:

In this issue I also have a project using our Tag Books, and here is a little sneaky peak:

And now it is time to introduce details about the AUGUST CHALLENGE.  The topic this month has been chosen by our lovely friend Helen Chilton, and the title is 'BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL'.  Here are the guidelines as usual:


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, by the 25th of the month, and include a link back to this blog,

Leave a link in the URL box, at the end of this post, 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

Plus here is some team inspiration to get you thinking (there is quite a lot this month so I will be posting more soon):

Firstly just one of Helen's oh so Bright and Beautiful projects:

Followed by one of Sue's lovely projects on the same topic:

Now a pretty little teapot stand by Lucy:

And a lovely decorated tin by Kim:

A very colourful coaster by Ginger:

And to finish tonight another so very Bright and Beautiful item by Isabelle:

More inspiration to follow, including mine which has still to be photographed (so much to do, so little time!!).

So just in case you missed the topic for the new challenge - just think 'BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL' - lots of scope there then!  Also please, please remember that your entry must include at least one Crafty Individuals stamp or image.  Give it a go and join in the challenge.

See you at the The Craft Barn on Saturday maybe?!

LOVE the new stamps in the Craft Stamper offer - I've subscribed! And yours was my favourite project in this month's CS. Absolutely lovely.

Gorgeous challenge samples too. Am in the process of moving house, so it might be a while before I have chance to enter again, but I'll keep enjoying all the inspiration until I get my craft room set up in the new house!

Beautiful article in Craft Stamper and I love your new stamps. Was all set to subscribe but my current subs don't expire until next month (sod's law) so I suppose I will have to get the credit card out - again.
