hi fellow bloggers
The creative stitches and hobbycraft show is on at the SECC this weekend and I took the day off work Friday to go - had a great time met a lovely lady on the bus who was also travelling alone and having someone to chat to about crafts [and some other stuff!] made the journey fly by. Then caught up with some local ladies from a craft club I sometimes get along to before sitting in on a mini workshop with Stephanie Weightman and her colleague. The workshop was a make and take using the sissix boutique embossing machine and sissix embossing folders and the new thing I learnt was to use embossing folders on the envelope flap - I think it is very effective.
Hwer is the card I made at Stephanies workshop - got a good idea to use doilies as lace and also to use embossing folders on the envelope - jsut a nice touch.
What did I buy well you won't be suprised that I bought some nesties as I love them and Oyster Stamps do such good deals. Also got a couple of Cheery Lynn dies and some silk material and odds and ends - great day but very tiring so having a rest today - no housework, just crafting!!
