We have 5 stunning makes to share with you tonight, as chosen by the lovely Florence (also with comments by Flo), from link ins to the Mini Masterpiece July Challenge.  Choosing is always incredibly difficult!! However here they are, in no particular order:

No 24 Irmgard ..

'Loved how Irmgard used part of the stamped image to cover and decorate the matchbox and her clever colouring with Gellatos brought out the beauty of the Friends In Paris CI 063 stamp.'

No 21 Raewyn ..

'Loved Raewyn's fabulous idea of stamping the ticket images over the printed Life's Journey 2 images creating the effect of depth.  CI 239 and CI 307 would be great to use for a similar project. So many possibilities for this idea.'

No 19 Carole ..

'Carole made 3 projects - A brooch, a card, and a fridge magnet.  Loved how Carole cleverly stamped onto wooden shapes, using the Alice Palace stamps British Bulldog CI 370 and Jolly Duck CI 430, to create wonderful cards and gifts.  The ducks feet on the brooch are fabulous!!!'

No 11 Jannet ..

'Loved how Jannet cleverly used just the head of the Two Teds rubber stamp CI 440 to create and decorate the beautiful notebook.'

No 8 Dortesjs ..

'Loved how Dortesjs created the background for her project which works perfectly with the Favourite Ducks CI 373 or indeed would work with any of the Alice Palace stamps.'

Many, many thanks to all who linked in - you are fabulous folk!  Could those listed above please send your choice of stamp, and address, to us at

Finally please look out for a CI Newsletter email delivery very soon - oh yes indeed!!

Bye for now,

Back soon,

I am so excited to have been chosen as one of the winners for the mini challenge.
Thank you so much. I don't know how Florence made her choice as the other entries were great, and such variety of ideas.
Best wishes
