After an absolutely wonderful but shattering long weekend in the shop, I turned up on Tuesday with little flutterings going on.....this was the day that all the
were arriving, and arrive they did, right in the middle of a meeting, with a lovely lady called Helen (sorry Helen)!!!, it was the first time she'd met me and Nina and at the sound of the knock on the back door, Nina jumps up, squeals, claps hands and gets rather excited, as did I, although I did try to stay a bit more professional about it (Oh alright I didn't)!! But I did jump up and promptly make the guy a cup of tea...well you have to look after these men, don't you.
So the last two days have been hard work, getting it all checked, priced and on display, and that we did, boy, we're getting good at these impossipuzzles :)
So what do we have.....Well there's the rather lush goodies from Heidi Swapp, I had a quick play today with the Invisibles and Mega Masks....well one has to try the products doesn't one!!! Loads of NEW Idea-Ology yummies - Masks seem to be the order of the day. Nina thinks I had a Time fetish going on when I was ordering as we have clocks in Acrylic, Chipboard, Masks and Acetate, I'm begining to think that she's right!!! Some great Teresa Collins 6" x 12" acetate sheets, some fantastic Jenni Bowlin Journaling Cards and papers, talking of papers I still can't believe I got them all out, there's Babooshka Dolls, Robots, and Cupcakes all from Kaiser - Oh and talking of Kaiser and Cupcakes you must check out the Kaisercraft Cupcake Albums, they are Yummy. More papers with New York, Vegas and Italy, some for the men, great with Father's Day approaching, including Ties and Soccer, we've got re-stocks of the FANTASTIC Fiskars Border Punches including the NEW Effervescence (I think I spelt that right) !! Oh and I nearly forgot, although this little gem is sooooo LARGE I don't know how I nearly forgot's the Kaisercraft Recipe Stand and it's absolutely gorgeous.
The Lights and Brights Alcohol inks are now in, at last!!!! But oh so worth the wait, way to go TIM!!! Along with the Grunge Paper, it's punchable you know!!!
I'm sure there's loads of bits I've forgotten and Nina's probably screaming at the screen, so you'll just have to pop in and check it all out for yourselves.
See you soon

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
