Happy Friday evening everyone,
I have been a bad girl today, but I enjoyed it so much... the Creative Stiches and HobbyCraft show came to Event City next to the Trafford Centre, it comes twice a year and it is the only show I go to, so I tend to make the most of it - I made too much of this year but in my defense I didn't buy anything last year as I wasn't crafting. I do feel bad though because I have already spent quite a bit on new Grand Calibur and Spellbinders dies which had just came out and I had to have.
Anyway thought you might like to see my stash.
This is the bling and a couple of stamps - most of the blink was only £1.00 each.
This was the paper and pads, the pads were all reduced the Christmas pad is 12" and was only £6.99, the others are all 8" pads and they too were reduced to £4.99 or less. I also got some A4 dotted and striped card and some pearl 160 gms paper for flowers. I watched a great flower tutorial from a lady using Britannia Dies, she used this paper - I was very tempted to buy her flower dies, but I already have Spellbinders Rose Creations and they are quite similar. I did buy the paper though.
these were the tools and dies which I bought - top right hand corner is a Tonic Flower tool kit, it is great I used it when I got home with the pearl paper and I actually made a rose which looked like a rose, a first for me. I bought the right (or was it left) handed flourish - I already have the original one and I wanted to get the opposite side one. I already have the lower case of the Memory Box letters so now I have the complete set.
Last but not least I bought one of those ribbon thingies, I am sure you must have seen them at shows before, I spent an hour when I got home make ribbon bows and flowers ready to put on presents.
I am glad to be sat down now with my feet up and a glass of wine :).
Hope you all have a good weekend.
