A MIXTURE OF GOOD STUFF TONIGHT....

Hi Folks

It's high time I wrote a blog post, and I need to thank you all for supporting our recent Hochanda shows.  The butterfly extravaganza shows were very busy, and convinced us you all love butterflies!  We had a great time and many thanks to Lesley Wharton for her fabulous demos too, she is such a good pal (and it was her birthday you may have noticed, lol!).

So I have a bit of a mix up tonight to show you.  Some samples from the butterfly shows as well as others featuring older stamps.  I popped this tag by Sylvie on Facebook yesterday, and you liked it!  Loving the mixture of stamps she used such as the new one CI-518, which is up on the website now, together with CI-498.  Completely different stamps but they look great together don't they?...



And here is another beauty by Sylvie in a completely different colour scheme featuring the butterfly stamp from a previous show CI-517.  Love it!..



Whilst looking at fabby stuff by Sylvie I also have these makes to show you.  A great wedding card - nice idea to use the two birds from CI-509, they work so well!..



I also love this little gem using CI-385..


Very nice selection Sylvie, and thanks.

I have just taken quick photos of my latest journal pages, and journal cover, that I worked on during the shows using the new butterfly stamp CI-520, and CI-518 and more.  Here is the decorated cover...


Plus the two latest pages...



Great fun to do and I'm really enjoying playing with my journal generally, and I've even started another where I intend to mostly concentrate on paint effect backgrounds, together with stamping too of course.  You will have to wait until the next Hochanda shows at the beginning of October to see that one though, lol.

My final image is of two cards by teamie Daniele, where she cleverly used two recent stamps as backgrounds to use with some of our mini image books.  CI-514 and CI-516.  Great stuff!



Lots more to come,
Back soon,
Jean x

Luvvly jubbly but, for me, the stars of any line up are your exquisite Journal pages. Forgetting my usual love of bright and messy, for once, I truly adore these pages. I shall study them until you post more! PLEASE, prettiest-ever PLEASE, post some more. In gratitude and hope........Marion, North Somerset.
