Aintree Craft Show

Managed to purchase most of the items on my list but was quite disappointed by the lack of stalls with quality papers and stamps…I did however manage to get one of the new Creative Expression Plates and my favourite Darkroom Door Plate.

IMG_0886These four quite large words are going to be decorated and altered sometime soon… haven’t quite worked  out what colours to use but you can bet there will be blues, turquoises and greens along with copper, bronze and silver.

The Everything For A Pound Stall was great and got a few bargains


There were plenty of bead and embellishment stalls so stocked up with these

IMG_0901IMG_0900Found a great place for trimmings and thought these were particularly fab

IMG_0894 Finally i spent most of my money on Tim Holtz Alterations Dies.  Still need another two and then i am done but i know i will enjoy making lots of things with these.

   Vic Stmpr April 01Vic Stmpr Apr 02The above two ATC’s should have been swopped at Stamping Club in April but i wasn’t able to attend so i still have them.  The theme was ‘Time’ using a pocket design if i remember correctly. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads, peel off sticker, small chain, Paper Artsy stamps and Stickles.


Vic Stmprs May 01These three ATC’s are for the next Club meeting in May. The theme for this month is ‘Things that make you Smile’.   Used Paper Artsy stamps, die cuts from Pazzle, Distress Ink pads and a Dymo for the wording.

Thanks for stopping by :-)

Playing Around

With Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads and the new Paper Artsy Hot Pick Plates 1004 and 1005.





Also added some of the stamped images from Elusive Images ‘Key to My Dreams’ plate which are really beautiful.

Tried an ATC

IMG_0863Then there is the paper i stamped onto which i can use as backing paper.

IMG_0867 Trying to complete my friends loo roll card which I started in February, was waiting for inspiration… Paper Artsy brought out their Hot Pick Plates and there it was. My friend is a Twitcher so these stamps are perfect.

IMG_0871IMG_0872Am looking forward to getting some of the Paper Artsy Dies to match the Hot Pick Plates and to the next months edition of the new Hot Pick Plate.

Also tried my hand at spraying lightweight card with Mica Sprays, then dragging some Ginger Adirondack Re-Inker across the page, added water and it was a mess… Managed to cover some other pieces of card with the excess ink and then overstamped using Walnut Stain Distress Ink with the Paper Artsy stamps; this is the result not brilliant but it’s a start…
