Craft shopping day

So I said I was going to the Farnborough Craft show today and several people have left messages to tell me to show what I have bought.

But first I have to tell you that I met Heidi (an ex MAWTT team mate) for the first time, even though we have known each other for a year on-line we had never seen each other, so it was brilliant to be able to chat to her in the flesh, although she was busy demonstrating for Little Claire's. I also met Cate again who is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and it was fab to say a quick hello to her too.

So here's my new stash (and although it may not sound that much, it cost me a small fortune). Lots of MDF shapes and items for altering, particularly 2 book style ring binders with tabbed board pages, a smaller tabbed binder, door hangers and heart shapes, I think I will have lots of vinatgey fun with these. Now who would have guessed that I would buy Lili of the Valley stamps, not me, but I bought 4 of them. A La Blanche bird stamp, 2 stencils, a couple of distress inks, 3 TH distress stains, large scallop edged cards and envelopes, some Lakeland vintage style backing papers, some wooden buttons, 2 packs of Laura Ashley paper strips, some textured brads and some chipboard pieces.

Here are pics of some of the bits.

So I shall have fun playing with my new things and I can't wait to get one of the books done. I have no idea what I will put in it, but I am sure I will think of something.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
