Extravagant Extravaganza!

Well, the Craft Barn Extravaganza is over for another year and I had a great time and met some lovely people, some for the first time and some for the second, third, fourth etc. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and for making it such a great event, (and for putting up with me when it went wrong!)
It was also lovely to meet up with the other demoers again, some of whom I only see at this event. We always have a bit of a laugh!
Here are a couple of pics of my table - didn't have time to take photos of anyone elses!

 On the board below I've used the fantastic Circus stamps from Oxford Impressions (2 different sets) combined with Faber-Castell oil pastels and Dylusions spray inks. If you haven't tried oil pastels for a while, they're a great way to create almost instant backgrounds.

The clock below left is one of the new kits launched by Tando - they come with all working parts (except mine didn't as I'd forgotten the battery!!!) and in three designs. Crafty Individuals have brought out three clock face stamps to go in the middle (you can see one there) as well as some other new stamps. Here's a close up so you can see it:

The circus train at the bottom is going to be a class on August 25th and also uses Tando products - I've taken the wide stage and sort of deconstructed it!
Above you can see my Show and Tell cards that use the wonderful, funky Lynne Perrella stamps from PaperArtsy:

Now I've just got to go and unpack everything and sort it all out!

Thanks for looking!


PS If anyone can tell me why some of this is highlighted, I'd be grateful - I must have pressed the wrong button somewhere!

Your samples all look gorgeous Helen and apologies that I didn't reappear as planned yesterday as I completely ran out of time having been chatting to demoers and crafty friends.
Hope to see you again soon.

Helen, it was great to see you and your work at the Extravaganza. What a great event, such a treat to see so many talented people at work, including you, and to come away so full of ideas and inspiration. Thanks for all your hard work.
Sorry I have no idea why your text is highlighted! Elaine x
