twinkle twinkle...

Well what a lovely weekend just gone, had a fabulous time at the Biggin Hill paper show, met the girls from J and C Creations and had a chat and found some wonderful products on sale there . Made a few purchases as you do and Spent far too much money during the day but hay ho he can't take it with him, (he he.) and with so much to choose from , glitters, new spellbinder dies and more stamps than you can shake a stick at , its a must-do day out.  If you get the chance to go next year, check out the tea and cake stall as their carrot cake is to die for!! we always get some as its hubbies reward for carrying the bags and credit card . I have offered to leave him in the 'husband Creche' but he insists on coming round with me
 Anyway must tell you about a product I found called Dream weaver Embossing Paste, you mask down your stencils and then smooth this over then just add glitter and what fantasic results

you can use it with your plastic masks just make sure you have it masked down well and dont over work it or there is a danger of pushing the paste under the mask. It needs an hour to dry hard but is touch dry in 20 minutes so make sure you keep on top of cleaning your stencils , soapy water does the job nicely then dry well for the next project, I have had a small selection of metal stencils for a few years now that I have never really played with but yesterday they made a comeback to my crafting table and have earnt their keep so to speak. have also made a further purchase with Sweet poppy.co.uk and have ordered the christmas village and christmas baubles for the holidays at the end of the year so keep an eye out for them

Fathers day is only a month away so I will be beavering away upstairs on some cards to sell at the local fayres .  Have a lovely little bulldog stamp I will be playing with today, watch out for the up and coming cards from that and also some beautiful poppy stamps as many of my friends are British legion members I expect that they will prove to be very popular.
