Stitches Part Two....

Here's the second installment from the UK trade Craft Show, Stitches. I sat for ages chatting to Vanessa, who was demoing the Cricut E2 for Kars. She had made all sorts of lovely things, and I was really taken with this card, a sort of gatefold, with a doily from Paper Lace in the center. I will be playing around with this idea myself without a doubt, thanks for the inspiration Vanessa

The Sissix stand was lovely, full of the most gorgeous samples.... don't you love that mobile for a child's room?

 There were some ladies wearing headbands made of flowers, that were nice enough to wear to a wedding!

 I was very taken with some of the samples made by Sandra, from the House of Zandra. She had made this lovely box, opening with a little key....
 Inside was a collage, very cleverly showing a Gorjuss Girl stamp as Alice, with all sorts of little objects around her.....
Even the back of the box was decorated

Sandra had made these lovely shoes as well...

 More loveliness, this time on the Paper Artsy stand, such gorgeous little altered boxes and canvases here....when I see things like this, I really love them and keep meaning to do a few canvases. Well, I have the blank canvas and plenty of grungeboard here....!

 They do a range of dies, with matching stamps, I love that key die in the center of the first photo......
can you see the birdcage die bottom left, with the matching stamp..cute. Some of the dies made the most wonderful grungey flowers as well

 I have left the best until last, all the gorgeous samples on the Fiskars stand were made by my best crafty buddy Kath, she has posted them on her blog, so hop over there for some real eye candy, but I couldn't resist sneaking in this lovely Christmas wall hanging here for you to see....

I hope you enjoyed your little trawl around the craft show with me, and that your wish list hasn't grown too much...I know mine has!

See you tomorrow

  5. Good morning Enfys, what a whopper of a blog you have for us this morning! I may have to get myself a second cup of coffee!!! I love ALL of it. You must tell Diane at Capadia that you found the ''cute shoes'' she needs for her trip to Nashville. I adore everything on the Little Claire (certainly not because my name is Claire ;o)) web site and must buy some peel offs and Flossie and much more also. Did you know that my husband let's me buy all the craft stuff I can hide???? You guys in the UK are having a very exciting year, I'll be watching from Canada. Can't wait for tomorrow. Big Hugs and have a wonderful day.
