LOTS ON THE HORIZON...

We at Crafty Individuals are in full swing preparing for a busy few weeks ahead.  This weekend we have a weekend workshop with 20 ladies in a local hotel, alongside Chocolate Baroque - very exciting!!  If you are one of our attending ladies we can't wait to meet you on Saturday morning. We will have a great time.  Then more excitement when both Lesley Wharton and I will be on Hochanda on the 1st May.  I think Lesley's first show is 8am and ours is at 10am, so we are preparing madly for that.  After that we are at the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight on 12th May - if you usually attend that one, we are in a different position this time around the corner from our usual spot as Chocolate Baroque and ourselves are sharing a big stand.  Do come and seek us out.

Well that is the current news and now I will have the pretty bits section starting with some gorgeous makes by Dora..


This features Blossoms CI-490, together with a lovely blossoms drawing by Dora, and the following features the very vintage typewriter from CI-455..


Pretty flowery cards by both Dora and Daniele are in the next photograph...


Lovely to see so many beautiful daffodils around everywhere at the moment too. CI-302
and CI-488 looking glorious in full colour here.

I have a couple of stunners by Sandra below.  The first using the other half of CI-488, and the church from CI-474 so cleverly combined...


And the second another beauty using CI-302 again, plus our Springtime background paper, butterflies from CI-437, and that useful postcard stamp from CI-477


My final very bold and beautiful makes are by lovely Coco.  Firstly a canvas with just a little stamping going on..


Secondly some mail art using CI-489 in a very different way..


And thirdly a sneaky peak of a project she has going in a French magazine soon - Oooops sorry had to remove that one and replace with the one below....  Again absolutely loving the colours though!...



Thanks for stopping by folks,
Back soon,

Jean x

Thank you Jean for sharing my different makes too. That shows well how the CI stamps and range match various styles.
I hope you had a great time with Lesley and all the ladies attending your workshop!
