NEC goodies!

Hello lovely people,

As many of you will know, on Friday I was at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC and I thought you might like to see all the lovely things that fell into my bag during the day!

Unsurprisingly my biggest spend of the day was on the LOTV stand!  I got a couple of retired stamps, the gorgeous Happy bears clear stamp set and these yummy paper pads...

I want to try my hand at some non-card stuff too so I got some MDF hearts...LOTS of them but here's the 3 different sizes...

and some plain gift bags...

I wasn't going to buy any dies, but have had my eye on these pretty Memory Box dies for a while and couldn't resist any longer!
I got a couple of others I haven't photographed, just a border die and some tag shape dies.

This next item won't be to everyone's taste but I got some new Magnolias, very cheap as they were unmounted.
I quickly mounted them up this evening and stamped them on some scrap paper so you could see which ones I got.

And the day wouldn't have been complete without a few odds and ends of lace, buttons and pearls!

So, it was a great day out and I have been happily playing with my new LOTV stamps and papers today :-)

I am also very excited to now have 101 followers so watch this space for some candy, once I put something together... some of that lace I bought might just find it's way into there ;-)

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.


  1. Wow, lots of lovely goodies Kat. I haven't gotten around to taking pictures of mine yet, they are still in the bags as I had a craft fair today and was getting ready for it yesterday.
    It was such a treat to see the Magnolia stand there this time, I got some lovely dies but no stamps I'm afraid. Look forward to seeing your makes with these goodies.

  2. Some gorgeous goodies there Kat, looking forward to seeing what you make..
    I think one of my biggest spends was also at the LOTV a stall ;-) so hard to choose just a few items lol

  3. Ha ha is it me you mean as you know I hate Tilda. I always head straight for LOTV too, their papers are very scrummy and a few stamps always fall into my basket. How exciting that Magnolia were there though, never seen them at a show as I do love their dies, though they are expensive, I use them a lot, look forward to seeing your makes, have fun x

  4. Looks like you had a successful day at the NEC Kat, bet you can hardly wait to have a play! Susan x

  5. What a great hoard Kat, hope we don't have to wait too long to see the result!! xx

  6. Ooh lots of goodies to play with - enjoy xx

  7. Gorgeous collection of goodies Kat - looking forward to seeing your decorated items in particular.
    I too had a fabulous shopping spree but surprisingly didn't spend a penny at LOTV this time :o(
