NEC Hobby Craft Show Birmingham

NEC! What can I say, besides Ouch! I had a great time, met up with friends and spent a small fortune. Just how many Ribbons and Stamps does one person need?

I went for a few mixed bags, as they have ribbons and colours that I wouldn't normally go for. Those are the ones you always need for a certain card but don't have. With all the Ribbons I already have and my latest aquisitions I will be very suprised if I don't find what I'm looking for.

Above are Templates, Card, Paper, some fabulous scalloped embossed frames, and then a load of general equipment and consumables.

And finally I left the best till last, Stamps, stamps and more stamps!

Best buy of the day? I would have to say a Clear Plastic Ruler with Measurements and lines on, and a Metel edge on one side. Bought that for £2.99. Having just been playing with it I can honestly say my Metal rulers are going in the bin. No more cutting to close or chopping bits off, because you can see exactly where your image is.

Wow Jeannette, you certainly had a great time!!! I love all the goodies you bought, especially the plastic ruler with the metal edge, where can I get one of these?

Well Jeannette, did you leave anything for the other crafters to buy, It sure looks like you had a good time.
The ruler sound great, I always cut into my plastic ones, and as you said its hard to see with the metal ones, best of both world on your new one.
I know you love your card challenges, I have started a sketch one on my blog if you would like to have a go at it.
I would love to see what you come up with.
Chat soon
