I know it has been said many times before - but how time flies!!!  I like to blog at least once a week usually, but the days have just disappeared recently.  Firstly there was the show at Port Sunlight - which was fantastic, and very busy as always - so lovely to see so many familiar faces there, and meet lots of new customers!  Then there has been lots to do back on home ground with orders, designing, and family stuff - but anyway here I am with some more visual treats for you.

We have just introduced some truly 'must have' items to the relevant section HERE.  Scroll down the page to see teeny tiny glass bottles filled with colourful micro beads.  We sold out of these at Port Sunny, and you get 12 bottles in a pack!!

Great for 3D projects, or use the beads and bottles separately to adorn your creations - yummy!

Also we have some micro polymer clay flowers in packs of 20 - these look utterly gorgeous in the centre of flowers.  Adorable in dusky pink or white.

Plus we have also added calico drawstring pouches and white paper carrier bags - perfect to decorate with TAP Paper (which will be back in stock soon - sold out at Port Sunny!).  More on that later.  And little heart shaped mother of pearl buttons, as well as some delicious square handmade ceramic buttons (all different).  I love buttons me!

Talking of drawstring pouches here are two I decorated earlier (also featuring the handmade ceramic buttons and transfer via TAP of CI stamps and images) ..

The pouches are ideal for holding gifts of soap or pot pourri or lavender or sweets or whatever else you might want to pop into such pretty little bags.  Check them out HERE.

Moving swiftly on to showing off some of the 'Teams' lovely work:

I have four piccies of cards made lovingly by Daniele -

Adore this one featuring CI-344 plus!

Daniele just loves this stamp pretty lady stamp CI-346!

CI-347 looking so very sophisticated on this one!

And again featuring cleverly here.  Thanks Daniele.

Now Zuzu has kind of semi-retired recently from our 'Team',  however she will still be creating with some of her favourite CI products from time to time.  And here follows some of her amazing new projects which we have just got to share with you.

Check out CI-336 and CI-305 - perfectly display in this printer's tray, and also in this superb little altered matchbox -

And what a pretty tag using CI-347 ..

I've still got lots more to show you - but you will just have to wait until next time!! Enjoy the summer sunshine if it is shining where you are - it has been a truly gorgeous day here and my spirits are well lifted!

Loving the new additions. Beautiful creations too. It's always great to see the many and varied ways products can be used to create little pieces of art.

Love the new editions to your line, the bottles remind me of some sweets that came in bottles many many years ago :)
