Last Monday I had a fabulous day at the Craft Hobby and Stitch International Trade Show which was held at the NEC. It is when lots of manufacturers and wholesalers have their new products on show and enables us as retailers to be able to view them 'in the flesh'. I had such a great time 'drooling' over all the products and was particularly excited to place an order with IndigoBlu who are a 'Quintessential English Rubber Stamp' Company. They do the most fabulous, deeply etched rubber stamps and we will be stocking their 'best seller' range, so you know they will be good. In addition we will also be stocking their fabulous flake and flitter glue - all to soon be revealed!
I was also really excited by the gorgeous new range of ribbons from May Arts many of which we will soon be stocking and we have paper ranges coming from Prima, Glitz Designs, Bo Bunny, Cosmo Cricket and Pink Paislee - so many new goodies to watch out for, so an exciting few weeks ahead.
Currently we have added to our range of Distress Ink Pads and have introduced Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Coredinations Pads - all from Ranger.
We are also now stocking Craft Stamper Magazine and from the next issue will be stocking Scrap365, two great magazines from Traplet Publications. Each issue of Craft Stamper has a free stamp and this new April issue out has a wonderful Hare stamp from IndigoBlu - what are the chances!
Lastly I want to finish with a very sweet layout sent in from one of our customers, Lorraine Cheshire, using the February Mini Kit, 'Love Me'.
