Stitches - Part Five

Woodware is an established name in the stamp industry, and over the past couple of years their designs have improved in leaps and bounds - there must be a new designer on the scene. I bought a couple of the Christmas stamps this year, and there are a few among this lot that I will buy - in fact I already have a couple of them. I do like these large sketchy letter stamps they have started making, I bought a SNOW word last Christmas.....

This sample was clear embossed on a dark background, very effective, I'll have to try that idea.....

A lot of you have commented that you would have spent a fortune at the show, well so would I, but here's the thing, at the trade shows it's all about showcasing the products, spotting the latest trends, catching up with other design team members and so on, you can't buy anything. So my bank account is intact, but my wish list is a mile long...So what's on the list? I want some Pebeo clear glaze and some sand textured paste, some of those gorgeous little KatySueDesigns urns and moulds for fimo clay embellishments, Lots of Tim Holtz stuff, but especially the shadowpress folders, lots and lots of stencils, some of the huge embossing folders (because the fuse is big enough to take them), and a multitude of stamps, pan pastels and some more lovely dies for my fuse....and that's just for starters. Better start saving the pennies then 


  1. Thanks I love some of these cards. I wish I had more time to craft. Thanks for a great posting.

  2. How did you manage NOT to buy?? luv'd it all!!!

  3. I missed the 'snow' stamp from Woodware but I did pick up the '25th December' which I love.

    The "no buy" is a good thing at the trade shows but traders can place orders which can be nearly as bad. The owner of my local craft shop said it is very hard not to get carried away and forget that they have a limited space for stock...it can be quite interesting watching stuff being moved around to try and fit a 'pint into a half-pint pot'.

    For me, I think my wishlist would be humungous.

  4. It must be pretty frustrating seeing all the wonderful goodies and knowing that you can't buy any!

  5. All those goodies & you can't buy anything? Torture! But good for the bank balance . . . .

  6. I often wondered if you could buy things at those shows. This morning I watched a video from Terri at "OneCraftyCookie" on youtube. She's bought a butterfly die for the Fuse, thinking it would work in her big shot. Not, so She said she'd sell it fairly cheaply. I thought I'd tell you and let you take it from there. Of course it would need shipping to the UK. So that might cost more than you'd want to pay. But it's all up to you now. Thanks for sharing all the great pix of the goodies that I can't buy anyway! Just like window shopping. Well, I'm off to work on some cards. Big Hugs, Jess
