Penny Black Saturday and Make Show report


Not sure why my puddy cat is so wishy washy yet the papers look nice a bright, its pretty obviously that photography isn't something I excel at.
It's sketch time at Penny Black Saturday challenge this week and as you can see I used a Penny Black pussy cat slapstick stamp. The papers are My Mind's Eye and the Woodware punches were working overtime for the flowers and leaves.


Here's the sketch we're using designed by Nat one of the DT and we have a fab prize from Fantastic Ribbons who are at The Make It Show at Farnborough Hants this weekend. I know for a fact they have some fab gingham ribbon and some spotty grosgrain. A bit of tip if there is a group of you why not buy 20 rolls for £25 works out at £1.25 a reel.
I had a great day out at the show but I purposely went to just have a browse, honestly I don't need any paper  and I'm not sure I would find much for scrapbooking but I don't think I would have had a problem at finding some for cards. My Mum's Craft Shop had a table of 6inch pads from various manufactures.
I don't need stamps having recently brought my much loved Sarah Kay, the London Penny Black and maybe a few LOTV fell in my basket online too.
But my downfall was the first stall was Oyster Crafts who had all the new Memory Box dies, bang went half my budget! I did manage to get a guillotine for £20 at CraftyDevils, I'm so fed up that when I'm at crops my paper trimmer fluffs up the cardstock just got to remember to keep my fingers out of the way guillotine blade!
A lot of the time was chatting with crafty friends.
Don't forget to join the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and check out the team.
