Whats On Your Work Wednesday 168.....A Big Crafty Shop!!

Hi! everyone! Tonight I have had a play with some new stamps I bought at the weekend on my Big Crafty Shop at The Great British Craft Festival at Donington. Here I have used Graphic 45 Papers & stamps along with Gilding Glue from Indigo Blue and some Sunset Red flakes from Sweet Poppy Crafts. I have showed a close up of the Stamp Gilded below as I thought it looked really good, I love the colours & its very shiny! but it didn't show up very well on the pic.

As you can see I did quite well on the shopping front. I have been saving for quite a while to go on this crafty trip. Me and my Crafty Buddy, Crafty Deb's went both days to the event & stayed over in the Hilton Hotel for the Saturday night. It was really nice & the breakfast was wonderful Sunday morning, ages since I have has a full English.

I bought all sorts! Including Stamps By Chloe, Sweet Poppy Stencils, Cherry Lynn Die's, Graphic 45 paper & stamps, Stampendous Stamps & Frantage powders & shaved ice, Ribbons, Sticky Gems, glitters, tapes glues.....ect...ect....All in all the weekend was fab. We though it would be fun to get as many pic's of us with Presenters from Create & Craft, we ended up having our pic took with about 7 of them. We chatted with the great Melanie Heaton & Dawn Bibby & Sue Smith & Sheena Douglass & a few others (I have name dropped enough..lol.) already looking forward to the next Crafty Show....Harrogate perhaps?

Finally I am still using my Hunkydory Xmas kits to make cards, I really enjoy making Christmas cards, so may images to choose from & I love being able to go mad with the glitter. Time to post this & hop over to Julia's Blog to join in the hop.......have a crafty week everyone & thanks for stopping by!

WOYWW 166....Erm...sorry but its.....Festive!!!

Hello WOYWW'ers! Its been a few weeks since I joined in Julia's Mahooosive world wide Blog-a-thon! If you have arrived at this page thinking "What's this woman on about???" then Hop over here and check her Blog out for the in's N out's of what I am on about & you too could join in on the weekly hop-a-roony! Go on show us your's!

I have finally succumbed to the festive card making! I have been playing around & putting together some of the Hunkydory Christmas Kits I bought from Create & Craft. There so easy to use & great fun too and this way I get to make loads of cards for everyone to have a made one! If I gave everyone I know one of my "Special" made cards every year I would take all year to get them done, it can take me that long to do just one sometimes!

As you can see I have been on a roll past few days. I have really enjoyed skiving off & just sitting here making cards all day, reminder to self..."Clean House"....:-)

So far I have done about 30 all together and used the some of the Vintage & Traditional Kits, I have still to use any of the Elegant or Cute Kit's. From the four kits I bought they say you can make at least 80 cards, however, they are so generous with all the die cuts & papers & card stock I think I will get about 150 at least!.....another reminder to self....."Go do a food shop".......;-)

Right that's it for this post I must get some sleep, been up till all hours in here! Its this new desk & room layout, I am having so much fun in here! I never want to leave this happy crafty place, I must get back to the real world though tomorrow, boo.......but then I will have to visit you at your desks.... yeah....another excuse to sit here! Whooo---hooo.....I am going a bit bonkers so I better wrap this up! Take care everyone & have a crafty week!
