My goodies...


Like I promised, a photo of my goodies that I bought at the make-it show in Farnborough last Friday. I aimed on just buying things that I either needed, so I can use stash I already have or things I really wanted but only if it was a lot cheaper than buying them on line...

I bought the big and juicy pad (£8), as have had a brayer for years and never used it, the Martha Stewart punches as loved the look on them as QVC and as these were just £18, I treated myself to 2, all from Oyster stamps ... The 12 x12 pad was another bargain at £4.99 (embossed and glittered) as were the peel off's, glittered not £4.99, lol, they were just 50p each...


As for these stash below, I again loved the Tim Holtz on QVC last week, but didn't want the TSV, but managed to get some shiny card, alcohol inks, blending solution and pads which worked out a lot cheaper. Also fancied trying out the cosmic shimmer, as saw a fab demo using it with the TH inks and the gliding flakes and shrinkles, oh yes and the heat/messy mat was another bargain price, at just £4.99...

On the 'every item a £1' store (or 12 items for £10), I got some lovely templates that I think Stevens day centre will love and some scrapbook templates too (for me)...


and the usual few wooden buttons from button-it, double sided tape and a embossing tool that I saw used in another demo... I really enjoyed watching the demo's this year, as did all the shopping before 3, then after 2 trips to the car (not only of my stuff, but my mum and aunties too, honest), then I walked round chilling watching demo's, oh yes the blue flower on the right was also done at a demo which was given to me, by the man making it, after spraying it with scent, lol...

And finally 7 A4 clear storage boxes as still sorting out my arty attic and 2 large pen pouches to store my promarkers...
