Free Christmas demo weekend

Good afternoon to all you crafters out there, I hope you're having a good weekend. For those of us in the UK the bank holiday weekend weather is pretty much par for the course with lots of rain, but that gives us the perfect opportunity to indulge in some crafting.

And if you're looking for some inspiration or have a 'need' to do some crafty shopping then you'll pleased to know that tomorrow the Christmas launch demo weekend continues at Sir Stampalot's shop in Peterborough. There are loads of new crafty goodies in store and on line including all the new Christmas stamps and products from Penny Black and Hero Arts, new embellishments from Marianne and Adorable Scorerbals from Hunkyadory which are great for really quick and easy cards if you are pushed for time. And that's just a taster of what's available. Everything is listed under the What's New section here.

I was in store yesterday when Clare Rowlands was demonstrating her new Molly Blooms summer bonus collection of stamps and there's a huge rack of them to choose from, along with loads and loads of inspiration. So if you feel like a trip there tomorrow don't forget to take your camera.

Needless to say there were a few of the new goodies which I 'needed' and Janice asked me if I would share a few of the cards I have made using the new Penny Black Christmas stamps along with the new Madison paper collection and the yummy new Frantage colours.

Time seemed to get the better of me though as I've only managed three fairly quick and simple cards but I did enjoy my little play and am impressed with the new Penny Black Christmas sentiment set, it's got loads of sentiments including one or two quite unusual ones offering lots of possibilities. You can check out all the products I've used by clicking on the thumbnails above.

So if you are at a loose end tomorrow do pop along to the shop, you won't be disappointed. Meanwhile enjoy your Sunday.

Gorgeous cards, Brenda! All beautiful and gorgeous colours on the first two. Will have to check out the new penny black stamps - do I detect a different leaf swirl to my usual?!
