Craft haul ... I've been shopping

Hi everyone, I have been shopping after sooooo long of not crafting. So much has changed!! There are new stores and new products!!!

I have to say that I am so happy that there are now stamping and die pouches - oh my, I cannot wait to start organising everything.

But the biggest thing to be invented for me so fay is the stamping platforms. Oh my goodness ...... what a complete game changer. What an amazing invention.

I was torn between the Misti and the Tim Holtz platforms. In the end I went for Tim Holtz. I really liked that you could use really large pieces of card if you want to plus the nifty lid is just genius. I haven't used it yet but I already know it is going to change how I stamp forever.

I have filmed my craft haul if you are interested to see what else I bought.

I'll be back soon with some new creations
Take care xxxxxxxxxxx

My Copic Collection - getting organised

Happy Sunday everyone. It's another beautiful weekend in the UK - I hope you are managing to enjoy the nice weather.

I have been busy sorting my copic markers out in anticipation of my first colouring session and I discovered that there is now a hex chart available. I am so late to the game after being absent for so long but wow, I am completely blown away by this chart. It was created by Sandy Allnock and is available to purchase from her website. 

What a difference it is going to make to my coluring. The way it is laid out will make pen selection for blending so much easier. I had great fun colouring the chart but I did have to start a few times because I coloured the wrong hex in by mistake - doh, lack of concentration lol. 

It has also let me find which pens need refilling - this is going to be pricey - around £140 for the refills that I need but it will be an investment. I cant decide if I should just get all the refills I need straight away of ir I should get a few plus a few new shades .... decisions decision. My head says get the refills but my heart wants more pens lol.

Anyway, here is a little video I made about my pens and my chart ..... I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me xxx
