Dudes, I was going to post over 90 projects tonight from the show on saturday but Im bushed for time - that would require a mahoosive blog post......tomorrow I have a day dedicated to that mammoth task
Instead I have 5 little piccies of my sneaks from the Midnight Rooster kit which premieres on Friday in their new-to-be launched web site. This kit has the perfect balance of handmade, hand picked and "hand-led beautifully" packaging that makes a refreshing angle for kit clubs. Whats more the DT is stunning (I don't include myself in that statement, by the way).
And lastly Tonic Studios. For those who dont know all my cutting equipment is sponsored by Tonic Studios. I swear by their mini guilltoine and nifty scissors more than anything in my craft room. Not because they sponsor me, oh no, cos Ive been using their tools many, many moons and fully endorse their equipment. I use their scissors when I demo on air and on-line and in fact, wherever I demo. This is my current fave line and hopef, tomorrow, I will have a project or two made with their new punches (and punches sing to me more than bulky-pain-in-the-ass die cutters and dies) When I cut I want one thing there and then, not two pieces of bulkiness that I have to crank and make space on my work surface for (unless its a Craft Robo Lite - more about that real soon!)
This mini guillotine is my fave in the world ever - more fave than choc, lip balm and cuddles from my dog. The blade stays sharp even after a gazillion cuts and is perfect for smaller cuts of paper and photos. The little gadgets include a scoring tool, a cutter and a perforator and then of course there is the amazing Tim Holtz distressing tool (Tonic USA have a line of gidgets and gadgets for him in red and not the dazzling orange I have grown to adore!)
Just a small sample of their scissors. UK lead and designed scissors receive my full support. You see the bottom pair. I. Use. Them. All. The. Time.
new punch number 1 - a window cut punch for all those sneaky reveals
How many little girls are going to adore receiving a project made with this baby?
Lets get excited and make things x
