Actual crafting in progress on my desk this week.
I was having a bit of a tidy- I decided I'd put all my bits of Christmas papers into one of those plastic wallets-bought some from Poundland for the job. Came across these stamped out images at the bottom of the box, so I've cut them down, and adding a little colour to them. Distress Ink Tumbled Glass onto my craft mat, and using a paintbrush & water to paint around the edges of the image, then pull the colour in.
This is a really old set, from Woodware.
Other than that, I bought an SU stamp set, and a diagonal scoring board via our Fiona ( Staring at the Sea).
However, just out of interest, I tried it with a couple. It *almost* fits the Hougie board, just a tad too wide.
But what I did find is that it will fit perfectly onto a Martha Stewart score board.
So that may be a money saver for someone right there.
The card fronts on my desk last week have been turned into cards, and they are posted below this.
There are a lot of pics coming up, from our trip to Happy Stampers, so I've put them all at the end, so you can skip over if you like. This really is a fantastic craft show, and well worth the visit. All about stamping/papercrafting, not another craft in sight. I can highly recommend a visit, if you've never been.
Sarah, Helen, me and Chris, with Neet behind us.
Mark & Helen from Visible Image.
And Pauline Butcher & her Other Half. Pauline does lots of the samples both for the shows and for the TV programmes, which she co-demos on with Mark.
With the lovely Lucy Ellis from Sweet Poppy stencils, who I learned so much from watching at a demo a while back.
Having a drink and a spot of lunch.
Ye gods, my hair needs dying, lol.
And yes, some shopping was done! Paper Artsy, Seth Apter and Hobby Art.
This was a real bargain- 4 items for a tenner. So I had a three pack die set, 2 packs of card- 50 sheets of 280gsm in each- and a 12x12 Gorjuss pack.
Honey Doo stamps, some WOW embossing glitters, and some gorgeous colours of Honey Doo's own embossing glitter. Some Gilding Flakes too.
Couldn't resit some Sweet Poppy stencils, and not on here but some of their own glitters too.
And lastly some stamps again- Lavinia,Card-io, Visible Image and Indigo Blu.
Finally, on our way home.
About 5 miles on, no sign of rain or clouds anywhere!
Well, if you made it to here, well done! You'll probably have seen photos on the others blogs, but I can say it was lovely to meet up and we had a great day.
