OH YES - BLOG CANDY TIME....

We have now hit 900 followers - yipee!  Which means its Blog Candy giveaway time - oh yes!!

To be in with a chance of obtaining this little lot below (worth in excess of £85 - and comprising of two CI mini books, two masks, a die, 2 MDF blanks and 10 assorted rubber stamps)....


.....you will need to do have a go at both of the following.   Firstly if you are already a blog follower please leave a message at the end of this post (but don't giveaway the answer to the puzzle here!), and then email us at: info@craftyindividuals.co.uk with the name and the number of the CI rubber stamp that this little image snippet below was taken from - check out our website at www.craftyindividuals.co.uk to find the whole stamp, its number and its name:


You have the whole of the weekend ahead to enter by commenting and emailing us, and we will choose the worthy winner of all the above goodies early next week.  Good Luck!

Now I'm going to show you some little crafty beauties so that you can find something to leave a comment about hopefully...

To start off with I have two gorgeous diorama cards made by lovely Gio, and what's more she has made you a YouTube video all about the making of one of the dioramas so that you can have a go yourself - loving these - so delicious colourful and delightful....





Gio has used our Seaside Background papers (perfect for these designs), plus the cute turtle from
CI-413 and seahorses from CI-272 in the top diorama, and the beachy babe and beach huts from CI-278 in the bottom diorama.

You will find the video here on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co2k7LLLyFQ&feature=youtu.behttp:// Enjoy!

Next I have a series of very pretty samples by Joanna - whose makes are always so feminine and totally adorable....



The sentiment in the above is from CI-402 and the die used is part of our In a Gilded Cage Die


The whole of the cage die can be seen above, plus our Floral Branch Die makes an appearance here too.  And I adore the next sample...



This very cute violin can be found in MDF on our site HERE, and the price is only £2.95 for five small very detailed musical instruments!

Finally I have this cool card again by Joanna...



....featuring our Sweet Flying Bird die.

Hope you have enjoyed tonight's post and thanks for Following,

Lots more to come,

Back soon,

Jean x
