Stitches Photos

We had a really busy day at Stitches yesterday. We spent the day visiting loads of stands, admiring the samples and products available and of course making a few orders.

Oh and we spent a little bit of time watching Tim Holtz work his inky magic and chatting to Karen Burniston about her amazing pop and interactive projects. Well ok, we spent A LOT of time on the last two things!

Here are a few photos from our day, spot some new products coming to ATDML in the shots along with lots of things that just made us go wow!

Ann was thrilled to finally get to see Tim Holtz "in the flesh" and we thoroughly enjoyed watching him create some amazing mini art works. We chatted to him about some of his new products including some very interesting sounding tissue paper tape. He was adamant that we must understand that it was tissue AND it was tape, no backing strip like DST but self adhesive tape on a roll just like masking tape. Because it is Tissue AND it is Tape!

Tims desk had some gorgeous bits and pieces on it, sadly we decided that he would notice if we "borrowed" them for a blog giveaway so you will have to make do with photos!

We loved these chipboard items on the stand selling Twiddlybitz, it is a company we have had an eye on for a while and we will be stocking some of their goodies verys oon so keep an eye out for them!

While we were wandering a familiar face appeared and we stopped to chat with Kirsty who was wearing a beautiful and very eye catching handmade necklace. It was great to catch up and have a chat as we haven't seen her for ages

We stopped to admire Tims new Alterations Dies on the Sizzix stand and then watched Karen Burniston demonstrating her amazing pop up dies and projects.

We have orders placed for various items that we didn't order through our contacts at CHA and they should begin shipping at the end of the week.
Talking of CHA keep an eye on the website as we received a big shipment today and uploading will be going on tonight and tomorrow :)
Be sure to visit the blog tomorrow for the next challenge. I hope you enjoyed the pictures from the show, I may find a few more to share in the next couple of days.
