Wow have you been enjoying the UK sunshine as much as us?  Hope it stays around a bit longer - maybe over the Jubilee weekend and week ahead!  Fingers crossed!  Talking of the Jubilee we have changed the special offer stamp on the website to CI-343, to celebrate.  Its free with orders over £25, and if you are also on our mailing list you will also have heard of our other special offer.  If you aren't yet signed up to the mailing list you should do so now as you will receive details of special offers for your eyes only from time to time - sorry you have missed this one - but do sign up soon on the Home Page HERE so you don't miss out on any more great deals. 

Also delighted to tell you tonight that we now have the artist transfer paper - TAP, back in stock - HERE.  We sold out of this at Port Sunny, but you can now try it out again.  To wet your appetite I have some images of a white paper carrier bag that I have decorated using stamping on TAP - transferred to white poly cotton fabric - hope you all still like pink!

I used CI-345 on the TAP, plus paper from our SHADES OF SUMMER background book, pretty fabrics, paper flowers, an earring, tiny pink mother of pearl buttons which can be found HERE (and only 95p for 8), plus our new polymer clay flowers in pink - love 'em!


Love that face in the vase - an old sea dog perhaps?!

Oh and I nearly forgot - I used a carrier bag that you can now also find on our website HERE!

Now to move on and show you some other lovely projects sent over by the 'Team'.  Isabelle Norris has also retired from the team recently to pursue other ventures, however she sent me this lovely piccy of a YoYo she had decorated for a friend - cool idea!  You will find the image in our People & Places Book 2 :

LYNNE has also been busy with our stamps and stuff and below you will find gorgeous images of things she has been making with our newest stamp CI-347:

Such a beautiful collection - perfect for your 'shabby chic' decor!!!

Still more to come from Lynne - plus she has a lovely project made with CI-339 on her Blog too right now.

To finish tonight I have an adorable tag by HELEN using CI-346 -

Nice use of a book page to make that frill!

A lovely 3 piece wall hanging by SUE -

Sue has used lots of CI bits and pieces on this one (and I've run out of puff for linking).  Actually I'll set you a little mini challenge - if you care to list what Sue has used and you email your list to us at by Saturday, and you are correct - we will send one of you a rather lovely prize. 

And to finish I have a very nice purse decorated by lovely LUCY recently -

Again lots of our stamps going on here!

Thanks all - have a lovely week - and I think the next post will most likely be to share the details of the June Challenge with you - oooo so exciting!

Gorgeous projects, love the look of stamped (or TAPped) material. Will we be able to purchase TAP at the Craft BArn Extravaganza for those who couldn't make it to Port Sunny ?
