My New Stash
I also bought card stock and some card blanks , together with some tape rolls, but they are pretty boring to look at. As you can see I got four new dies, three embossing folders, some stamps and WOW embossing powders. I'm looking forward to getting time to play with them.
Has anybody used the Fiskars Fuse System? I did a workshop so that I could see what it was all about. I was not impressed at all. Well that's not strictly true. The only thing I liked was the fact that it could stamp, cut and emboss with only one pass through the rollers. That aside it is very expensive, very big and extremely heavy. It's the size and weight of a small sewing machine. I also was far from impressed with the depth of the embossing. Very poor indeed. And you cannot use any other dies etc in it. Needless to say it won't be finding a home in my craft space!!
But the best part of the day was that I met up with Ang, aka Mrs Duck, for coffee in the middle of the day and then in the evening we met up with our friends from Scotland - Patricia (Summerhouse Crafts), Hazel (Hazels Baskets of Joy), Kate ( Cuilliesocks) and Patricia's good friend Elaine We had a fabulous - and very noisy - evening together. Great fun and lots of laughter! Imagine six women together!
Well that's it from me. I will be visiting your blogs later to see what you have all been up to.
