Crafty Individuals On Telly Today

Hello there,

How are your Jubilee celebrations going?  We are having a family garden party today, so I'm really looking forward to that.  After a couple of years where Covid has dictated otherwise, it's really good to be making happy family memories again.  It doesn't seem two minutes since the Silver Jubilee, so I'm not sure how we've got to this one so quickly, it's quite scary if you sit back and think about it, so I don't think I will!  

In other news, lovely Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals is back on Create and Craft today at 12pm and 3pm with some wonderful new stamps that have been designed by our own lovely Dora.  It's all about birds this time around and I have to say that I've really enjoyed making the samples again.  I've done lots of decoupage this time around, which I think worked really well with the new designs.  Jean is also releasing a new set of sentiment stamps which I've loved using and they will definitely be staying on my desk as they are so useful.   Here are the first two of my samples:

The Wren is such a beautiful stamp and will get lots of use, especially on masculine cards or even sympathy.  I wasn't sure where I was going when I first started this card.  I just kept adding more and more elements to it and I'm really happy with the end result.

How cute are these geese? I cut out and repositioned the heads on the two outside ones and I think it makes them look really comical!

I'll be sharing the rest of my samples over the next couple of weeks and I hope you like them.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Bank Holiday xx

These are amazing - especially the geese! Have a lovely family get together - we are having a street party here (weather permitting) I've got out my old
Be-Ro book to remind me how to make sausage rolls, wish me luck.

The decoupaging on your first card looks fabulous, what a wonderful scene and you sure looked like you enjoyed it Sandra. Love the curtness of those geese and a fun idea to reposition their heads! Hope you enjoyed your family time today and yes isn't it wonderful to enjoy the company again?

What gorgeous cards Sandra and I love the sweet and pretty wren and the black background really shows off the pretty background aged music with the wonderful flowers and name label, and who could resist those fun geese, and I love the way you have set their heads at an angle...a fabulous background scene and bright pink die cut flower branches in the foreground..fantastic colours all told. x

Two stunning cards Sandra! Catching up after being a bad blogger of late. I really don't know what else to say about your cards as I have said it all so often, they really are beautiful. the wren really pops on the black and those red flowers really draw you into the scene with the geese. Thanks for your message. Life in the way trying to keep o top of everything.xx
