Recipe #10

Another month roles by and we see ourselves in September already. The month of returning to normality, back to school for the children in the UK, new uniform, new stationery, and maybe new craft supplies for us? There is certainly plenty out there to chose from, and why not use some of this to make some cards.

Our inspiration for this recipe is a shop bought card our chef Ann received earlier this year.

As crafters we generally appreciate cards more than most, especially handmade ones, so how will this card inspire you to create? Our chefs were inspired in a variety of ways, from making gift-bags to a suitcase shaped card, or maybe your will use the grid placement of the bags on the card. You could do a layout of the contents of your handbag, your love of shopping for handbags, base your inspiration on the colour pallet even, it's entirely up to you!

As always we look forward to seeing what your creations are and are grateful for your comments sharing links to them here on our blog. Every comment linking to a ChickenSoup inspired project will be entered into our monthly draw and we are please to have Lynn and The Craft Emporium as our sponsor for the month of September. Happy crafting everyone, and you may want to sneak back here to the blog on Monday when we announce our Design Team call!

And the winner is....

Well the weather for August may not have been all we'd hoped for but the beautiful layouts and cards created by our SOUPer follows has certainly warmed our hearts. Take a trip down mutual appreciation avenue at what you have all been creating during August using Recipe's 6,7,8 and 9.
