Craft Show "Goodies" 2013

Hi Everybody,

Home again after a really enjoyable weekend away at the Craft Show.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn this time and it was very good ... and a lot more reasonably priced than the last hotel we stayed in.

These are some of the things I bought and I can't wait to get playing with them all.

I eventually got my Grand Decorative Circles and I also bought the Grand Decorative Labels One.

But all the ones I bought have fancy edges to them and they are lovely.  I also got the large A4 M-Bossabilities folder and that will enable me to emboss a whole sheet of card in one go.  And I got a lot of magnetic sheets to store them on.

Some of the other items are the new colours in the Distress Inks and they are very bright for summer cards..... need more blenders to go with the new colours....and I know just the place to buy some too !!

I got all the usual stuff like glues,  glitters, Gilding Flakes and Alcohol Blending solution.

And I bought some of the "Stamps By Chloe" as they are just lovely and I can't wait to show you what I come up with using them.

It's nearly time for the draw to be done so if you haven't added your name to the list it will soon be too late.

Head on over to the page for your chance to win some   Spectrum Noir Pens    .... the winner will be chosen on Tuesday.

Hugs xx

    I'm wondering what you're going to make again
    love jacqueline

  7. Looks like you spent a small fortune there. I,m just trying to get hold of my sister because she went and I want to see what she bought. Cant wait to see what you make with them all. xxx

  8. Wow that is a fantastic haul of goodies :) Hope you met some lovely members while you were at the craft show. Look forward to the new projects using these fab items. Would it be possible to go through the various dies Christina in a tutorial as I certainly get confused with grand, large, petite, etc in the nestability range.

  14. I think that looks like a 'really good haul' and good to know you enjoyed yourselves. Would've loved to have come along but not able to this time, never mind there's always next time!

  15. Sounds like you had loads of fun and did some good shopping. The A4 embossing folder should prove very useful.

  16. Oh! My goodness I don't believe it guess where we stayed??? Yep the Holiday Inn we were there from Thursday evening till this morning.
    I enjoyed the show but have to say I prefer the show at SECC in Glasgow. I did buy some things, well you just can't travel 250 miles and not buy something.
    Hopefully get using it once I have caught up with my Pendant orders that have come in while I was away.

  17. I can see something awesome in the near future ;)
    What a wonderful bunch of goodies. Perhaps something for Easter with those lovely crosses? Can't wait to see what you create.

  18. Love the stuff you bought Christina and can't wait to see what you come up with for Chloe's Stamps as I have some and I'm out of my comfort zone with them as I'm not a stamper (yet!)LOL

  19. Wow! Lots of goodies! :) I've just started my Spellbinders collection and I found out about them from you. You are an inspiration! I can't wait to see what you create with your new dies and other goodies!

  20. Morning Christina

  26. HI Christina. I am pleased that you had a wonderful time. I find it nice to chat to people with a like mind and compare info.
    Could you comfirm for me that the Grand calibre dies are to big for a Cuttlebug? Many thanks.

  27. Looks like you had a wonderful time. All of the buys look great and can't wait to see what you come up with. I have the Big Shot so unable to use the grand dies. Thinking I may need another bigger machine as I do like some of those larger dies.
