Well it's the last day of the show....#sad sad sad face
to say we've had a laugh has been an understatement , it's been an absolute blast, and as I've felt a bit let down by shows in the past, I didn't give myself any preconceptions for this one ! But boy, they ALL pulled it off and I've got to say it's been one of the best for ages......
So what trends are we seeing ????
Well, canvas, I'm so pleased to say is big, along with naturals and LOTS of mixed media.... YAY !!! flowers are still MASSIVE and there's so many ways to make them, all the companies are in on them, especially the spiral ones, Including Spellbinders who have released a fabbi die for doing just that!!
There's some great vintage lines out there (and soon to be at Sugar and Spice) !!
The Smash line is really super (coming soon) !! And some great art journalling Prods!!
Dress forms are MASSIVE and birds/cages are still in there :)
We've got a few NEW companies joining us. #soexcited !!!
Anyway I'll stop waffling on and show you a few more piccis

It's Christmas time at E K Success

This is just sooooo gorgeous... It makes you want to wear it

This one's for you Nina, I'm in the Smash booth and I think I've found THE largest Tash in the world. #enjoy !!!!!

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
