I have used Pion Design 12x12 papers, Prima Marketing flowers and birdcage, Imaginarium Designs word, gold adirondack dabber, brushed curduroy/scattered straw distress inks, Creative Expressions lace, ribbon and gems, Hunkydory glitter and Beacon 3 in 1 adhesive.

BSSS stand

Just a quickie... this is the stand at the Big Stamp and Scrapbook Show last weekend. The stand looks great!

The table at the front was my demo table, to the left were stamps and 12x12 pads and collections. In the middle were Prima Marketing flowers and treasures, 8x8 and 6x6 pads, Claritystamps and Kaisercraft chipboard albums, drawers and  12x12 paper stackers. The far side were 12x12 Pion Design, Graphic 45, Bella and Kaisercraft acetate. Lastly at the far left were Imaginarium Designs phrases etc , more 12x12 pads, greyboard, Beacon 3 in 1 and PPA.

A Great Weekend

What a super time we had at the BSSS this weekend. It has been really good to see and talk to everyone and to hear the great feedback. We look forward to seeing you all, either at the shop, on facebook or here on the blog. As soon as I finish the projects I worked on I will post up the photos.
Craft day this Saturday 20th October 10 till 4.
If you cant make it dont forget you can email or PM me to have your order shipped. I will be asking Sharon to add some extra pages soon so we have some dedicated space for stock for you to see, ie: Pion Design, Graphic 45, inks and mediums, stamps, card, Imaginarium and basics ( not forgetting the Bronze Turkeys!!) so I dont have to put the sales on the main page.
Hunkydory magazine is out on the 16th (tomorrow) so we should have our copies by the begining of next week. To reserve your copy give the shop a ring: 01604 810910
I hope you all had a really great time at the show and your homeward journeys were smooth.

Busy Busy Busy

I really cannot work out where last month has gone, with 9 family birthdays and anniversaries
having been celebrated I am now exhausted, mainly from all the eating and drinking!! We had some beautiful cards made by Carol....... ( I think the phrase is "a shipping order").
So now back to reality and trying to get organised for the BSSS, East Midlands (Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show) to be held at Kettering, October 13th and 14th. Really looking forward to it.
Lots of new projects and layouts. Here is a layout using Pion Design paper

The chipboard phrase is Imaginarium Designs and has been tripple embossed
