Ally Pally Show

 It's that time of year again, yes, I mean Ally Pally time!  Twice a year, April and September, Creative Expressions hosts the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at the Alexandra Palace in London.  If you have never been, it is quite amazing.  There is so much fun and exciting crafting goodies there all under one roof for your delight and pleasure!  If you are able to attend, you will find me just as you enter the door to your right.  I am demoing at the Rubbernecker booth, but I will also have a Particraft stand with loads of demonstrators and fun demos to inspire your creativity.  A couple of quick notes, first, I had an email on the show last week that asked about the spellbinder die used on the toadstool card shown here.  I erroneously identified it as the lotus border.  I am so sorry about that, but it is actually the In Spades border.  It is a really lovely die that I believe Jo has on a show next week (the 13th) as you can run your ribbon through it quite nicely.

 Thank you for all your support for the Tatty Button launch as it was really well received.  I've posted a few more of the cards for you to get a closer look at if you like.  Although it is difficult to see from the picture of the card below, there is a lovely lavender rose seated in the centre of the bow.  These roses are now in stock in five colours plus an assorted pack and I will have them on the Rubbernecker, Particraft and Creative Expressions  stands at Ally Pally.  If you would like to see a better picture, scroll down to the post made on March 18th and look at the first card with pale pink roses on the white and gray card.  They are ever so lovely and very inexpensive too!  My photography skills (or rather, lack thereof) do not do it justice.  Better for you to pop by the booth and see them in real life this weekend.  I almost forgot to mention that I will have the vintage ribbon in the neutrals and in all the lovely colours at a bargain price for you too!  Please stop by and say hi if you are coming to Ally Pally.  Let me know who you are as I love to put faces to the names and comments left on the blog.  We are getting close to the blog candy contest draw so don't forget to leave comments for more chances to win.  All for now, Sue x

Wish I could come and say hello Sue, but I am afraid the old credit crunch is really biting, so have to pull my horns in.
I do hope you have a great time and sell lots of goodies.
Look forward to seeing you on the telly next time you are demoing, I really do enjoy watching you create.

Lovely cards as usual. I hope you have a good time at the show.

Rufus said...

Lovely cards! While I've heard about Ally Pally for years, it's a bit far for me. Wrong side of the pond and all that. To bad since everyone always seems to have a great time and come home with loads of lovely bargains!

Wellington said...

Got to say that the stamps themselves aren't really my cup of tea, but your samples & colour schemes are as lush as ever Sue - thanks for the inspiration...Just about to purchase a couple of sets of nesties & I'm struggling to narrow it down. Your samples don't help LOL I want/need them all!

It would be wonderful if you could have some shows on C&C with some beautiful papers, stamps, ribbons, embellishments etc all chosen by you so that we could see how you put your colours/designs together.

Hope you had a great time at AP. Love the Tatty Button stamps - great samples to show them off as usual. Lovely.
I haven't been able to post for a while - something to do with my PC and lack of knowledge!
Best wishes

Larisa said...

These cards are gorgeous Sue!

Granny P said...

Although they say blue and green should never be seen I think this combo works really well. The dog's/hound'stooth pattern is a favourite of mine. Still working my way through your various flower techniques, which you make look so easy.

THE HOOSIER STAMPER said...

I like all your cards very pretty! My favorite I got to say is the mushroom card!
