Craft haul from NEC

I was lucky enough to go to the craft show at the NEC yesterday. I went with two ladies from work, Emma and Michelle and Emma's husband (who I also work with) kindly drove us....he did a great job as it's all motorway  and it was chucking it down.

As you can see my haul wasn't too large. I did buy some Buddha heads and texture balls from powertext as I intend making a canvass as their product looks amazing (Emma uses it a lot and blogs about it at www.bakeandmakeinbristol.word 

I also bought some more visible image stamps as I love the quality of their stamps and they are a little different.
A few bargains such as three greeting dies for £5,embossing folder, crafters companion stamps,x cut snowflake  die and a Sheena Douglass  stencil for £1 each!
Also after seeing card-io majestix at shows over the years (small stamps they use to build up entire scenes ) I relented and bought a couple of sets....they always look impressive-fingers crossed I can replicate their demonstrations. 
A few other bits and pieces and now I am shattered but looking forward to playing.

Happy crafting 


  1. Oooh Kyla what a great haul. You have definitely enabled me with those Buddha heads, been looking for something like that.With you on the Visible Imahebstamps, and the Cardio. Bought some last year and have yet to try recreating the demo's cards. It looks fairly easy though, doesn't it? Which probably means a couple of frustrating days and a bin full of paper,lol. Hugs, Shaz xx

    1. Yep, think its going to take a few attempts. Enjoy your trip x

    2. Shaz....for some reason the system added your comment twice so I removed one (just in case u wonderedbwhat had been removed!)

  4. Liking this a lot! Have fun with it all. Hope you're recovering now!

  5. Yes! I can see you did buy a nice collection of goodies. I love those Visible Image stamps and the designs are always just that bit different from other companies. Take care and happy crafting, Angela x
