This weekend {Ally Pally} So much new stuff to show you!

Hi everyone

Well really struggling to keep my secrets this week as the most amazing stock has been pouring into HQ all week, so thought I would give you a sneek peek of what we will have on the stand at the show! Suffice to say, I think the stand will look the best it ever has, but then I might just be a bit more than HUGELY excited!!!

So first up the important thing - don't forget you are all welcome to come and meet us in the bar on site after the show closes Saturday evening for a drink! We are having our #tweetup while the traffic settles down, so come and join us. It's so nice to relax and catch up with everyone at the end of the first day and see what everyone has bought !!!

Second, Lin Brown will be demoing with me on Saturday,check out her show prep here... and Gillian Simson {our own Blog (phat) controller} has offered to demo on Sunday and that is going to be a lot of fun! Normally JoFY does the Sunday, but she will be off teaching the lovely people at Pink Tuilip Crafts! So we are looking forward to Gillian being around, she has been playing about a lot with spraying fresco paint, so she will be the queen of all things Finnabair and resist canvas .... see what she did at a recent Finn class here 

I will be demoing with Darcy and Jo's new stamps, and doing anything else you ask of me!

So what ELSE have we got (as if that wasn't enough!!)

Well remember we have Darcys new stamps, the new JOFY stamps, the many new minis that last month's semester people launched in August, Lin's new stamps.

We also have new chipboard, tags, journals.

Lots of new wooden items for altering...so you know and expect most of that kind of thing from us....

But we (fingers crossed) should have all the new paints. We are expecting a delivery tomorrow, and its going to be tight getting it all bottled. This is what 72 Fresco paints is going to look like on the stand! What's new...well I'm going to make you wait...but we have some steely blues, a wicked sunshine yellow and tango orange, caramel and toffee....and more besides!

I also found this cool Kraft wrap that is only £2.50 for 2 rolls
And some Prima canvas sprayable journal covers, they are padded so you can sew onto them, and the insert pages to get you started...
Some old faves, and plenty of new stencils from Crafters Workshop, a crafter can never have too many stencils, and Crafter's Workshop are lovely quality, which is why we have been selling them for many years now!
Prima flowers galore, in neutrals for you to spray with fresco paint! And more resist canvas to spray with paint or dye inks.
 More flowers...told ya! LOL
Oh now, these Lin has been nagging me to order these for a while. I have about 40 different types of resin embellishments. they are huge to teeny-weeny. Flowers, birds, cameos ...and sooooo cheap...no need for costly mould and pour/ UTEE, these are the best price ever! We will be painting them, and tickling them with treasure gold, then using them as flower centres! Gorgeous!

But next.....Tadaaaaa the entire prima mechanicals line...and Anna Dabrowska (Finnabair's) sunrise-sunset embellishment range...so that's about 2 massive racks of this stuff. And you will NOT believe your eyes, nearly everything is £3.95 Such an awesome price I am thrilled, I had to check my calculations so many times, but its correct! Wahey!

I have been so excited about this range since I did a class with Anna October last year. She has created delicate, feminine embellishments that layer up perfectly, and can be used in so many ways. And now she has even more stuff this year that we have on the stand, can not wait to play with it! Some items are enormous. Look below...just £3.95 Don't miss out!
And Anna's stuff fits beautifully with other Prima items of the same genre, as below, and their resin bellies are beautiful with Fresco paint and TG....

I expect this stuff to go fast so don't miss out if items like these are on your list....


There is more...we have memory box dies, the new Fresco paints (12 colours), and I have another order arriving tomorrow with more journalling papers, pads, etc...Plus new chipboard large format white coated, also some lovely new large canvases....I keep thinking of stuff....but you get the drift....a LOT of stuff. I am not sure how we are going to fit it all on the stand!!!

See you there, Saturday and Sunday, Alexandra Palace, London, tickets and info here..

So excited about steely blue Frescos, and all those new colours, and thrilled that you're carrying Anna's embellishment range - they are stunning!!

Have a brilliant weekend... wish, wish, wish I could come (but my credit card will be grateful).

Debbie said...

OMgosh, How fab does all your stuff look.
I always admire your stall and loved how it was set out at Port Sunlight this March.
I was hoping you had decided to go to Harrogate again in October, but not sure if you will be there.
Have a good Ali Pally.

Oooooh how wonderful! Put me down for a lottery win or a job too please, as I "need" all the new paints and loads of the Prima stuff - oh and all the JOFY stamps too and ......

TAM said...

Perhaps it's a good job I can't make Ally Pally after all - with all the wonderful things you've got to offer - I wouldn't know which way to turn.

Neet said...

Oh Em Gee! have a great time but please reorder lots of Finn stuff for port Sunny. Please, please, please.
Good luck with the show!
I'm saving my pennies!

crafting maria said...

Luv Maria xxxx

craftimamma said...

OMG, OMG, OMG, so much stuff in this post that I've been hankering after. I will be so gutted if you can't get all the stock topped up for good old Donny. I think I'd best be in the queue and do a Harrod's sale style charge for your stand when the doors open, lol!

I know all the #patwits have had a great day at Ally Pally today ('cept us poor souls from up north who can't get, lol). Hope tomorrow is just as good.

Hugs
