Up at the crack of dawn on Saturday as I had arranged to meet a friend and go to the Craft Barn for the Christmas Minifest. To clarify, "crack of dawn" for me is anything before 8.30am on a Saturday!
There were 6 demos to see, we spent 5 and a half hours at the place and I have parted with more of my hard earned cash.
The launch of the new PaperArtsy stamps by Jo Firth Young was great, the plates are wonderful. I bought one plate set and one mini, I was tempted to buy more!
Here is a picture of the display board :
and a shot of Jo showing us one of the cards :
I liked the look of the stamped images on Kraft cardstock so when I got back in the evening I tried it out. Easy, quick card to make and quite effective I thought. Here is mine:
The card is cut down to a square from a C6 card. The stamp is PaperArtsy JOFY JM03, stamped with black archival ink and coloured with mustard seed and salty ocean distress inks.
A really great day out, interesting demos, good company and to finish off my report on the day, here is a picture of the new stash that came home with me!
