I had never been to a big craft show before ... until Saturday when I went with my Guiding friend Joan to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show at Aintree Racecourse. Although I know it isn't one of the biggest we had a great day and it was especially nice to see so many products being demonstrated. My favourite find of the day was some 'magic' foil card from the Craftology stand. I can't wait to have a go with some of my stamps and show you the magic too!
Below is my take on the costume/dressmaking theme for this month's fat page swap on the CB forum. I have made these little dresses many times before and each time the result has been very different. It's very interesting to see how everyone interprets swap themes in so many different ways.
Papers: Papermania Creative Tones 'Venetian Skies'
Ruler Image: Internet
Assorted fabric, ribbons and fibres
I also used my other two painted Tildas from a few weeks back to make two ATC RAKS for CB forum friends Bigbunniesuk and HellyBelly to say thank you for hosting swaps especially to HellyBelly as I forgot to put an SAE in with my swap and she was kind enough to post it anyway!
Stamp: Magnolia 'Tilda with ruffled skirt'
Pens: Whispers Strokes
Papers: K&Co 'Berry Sweet'
Flower punch: XCut
Thanks for visiting!
