HobbyCrafts, Version Scrap and new {rubber stamps}

After so many positive comments about us exhibiting at the NEC late last year, we decided to do it all again for the show this coming week.

NEC HobbyCrafts is on for 4 days in Birmingham, UK from Thursday 25th to Sun 28th March. 4 days of demos, new products and new stamps. Our stand is F02. Write it down as I'm not sure if we made the showguide but we are near the demonstration forum. Come in the main entrance and turn left. Go towards the end/ demo area and you will see Once upon a stamp on your left. Turn right into the aisle (second to last aisle) and we are in the first block on the right opposite Craft Superstore.

2 weeks after that we will be in Paris for Version Scrap. April 9,10,11. This is a show I have attended for the last 3 years to teach classes and make and takes. This time we shall exhibit with our own stand. If you are looking for an excuse to have a weekend in Paris this is it! It is a fabulous show. They have many great teachers such as France's own many stars like Celine Navarro, Manuela Jamet and Karine, or les Americans also put in an appearance such as Teresa Collins, Debbie Schuh, Donna Downey. 

As well as great teachers, there are also many exhibitors, and with some really interesting and different products. Then when its time for lunch, you sit down for a quiche or crepe with a glass of wine or a beer! Fabulous daaaahling!! 

The Version Scrap venue is in the midst of Parc Floral which is most beautiful at this spring time of year, and has easy metro access. Take the yellow line (number 1) and get off at the last stop, Chateau de Vincennes, there is then the cutest little trains (les Navettes) take you direct to the venue or you can have a lovely 15 min walk thru the park if you prefer. Beautiful way to start the day.

So what have we got lined up for you at these wonderful shows? Lots of new stuff !! 
 Lots of Viva paint, 
new ranger distress inks, 
And we will have a selection of new products from Crafty Notions too (opaque dye sprays, masks and stencils plus more!
fantastic wood substrates, 
chipboard and canvas products, 
brand new Ten Seconds Studio metals in new metal packs (we put 3 colours in a pack for £5), 
New TSS moulds and of course 
new rubber stamps!
This one is HP1004 - 
Hot Picks are A5 stamp sets and will sell for £14.99 UM or £19.99 on EZ 
We are releasing a new one each month
This one is HP1005

We also have 6 new stamp sets for Squiggly Ink called Flora and Fauna
 These are SIFF1 and SIFF2 to give you an idea
Here are all 6

So we hope to see you at one of these shows, if you can't make it, you can buy all this on-line from April 1st from us at PaperArtsy or at your local stamp store now. 

I will be demoing my socks off to show you the versatility of all these products. It's going to be so much fun so do drop by and say hi. Free gift with every purchase.

OMG Leandra, what fantastic goodies. I really wa ....NEED some of those new stamps and substrates and TSS moulds. Can't run to Paris I'm afraid but I'm coming to the NEC next week. Argh!.... I hope you haven't sold out of those fab cogs and timepiece TSS moulds by the time I get there.

I've only seen you demo once before at the Artisan show last year so can't wait to be awed once again.
