August Challenge Time - and its 'Autumn Fashion' - the topic as chosen by Sylvie, and Sylvie has created a beautiful scrapbook mini album to get us all thinking.  She has sent over lots of photos which I will display below, but first - here are the usual guidelines:


To enter this month's Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your chosen project, which must include at least one Crafty Individuals product please, then post your Challenge project on your Blog, before the end of the month, and include a link back to this Blog.  Leave a link in the URL box displayed in this post to take us directly to your Challenge project, which will then appear on this Blog as a thumbnail image - so we can all see your wonderful arty work.

At the end of the month Sylvie will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice, and don't forget that as per usual, once you have linked in your creation, you can also claim a lovely 25% discount code to use on anything you purchase from the CI Website, which will be valid until the 10th of September.

Go for it, and enjoy the challenge x


As always we look forward to seeing your entries - you will be in with a chance of winning a free stamp, and you will also be able to obtain a cool 25% CI web discount.  When you have linked in your entry please email us at to obtain your special code, and then go shopping!

We would all be extremely happy if you could play along with us this month!!!
