Heirlooms Allentown Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival
This is our second convention of the season. My friend Karen drove to Allentown so we could check it out. We also ran into a friend from Stamp Camp, Katherine. It was another great time, with another free "make and take".
I know I didn't need these pearls and rhinestones, but....
LOVED THIS PAPER!!! This is something I don't usually do- buy beautiful paper in single sheets, but once I bought the ribbon below, I saw this, and I just HAD to have it! It is made by S*E*I. It is double sided, and some of the stripes are metallic- both sides are showing in the picture. The ribbons are just gorgeous! Can you tell the one in the front is my favorite!
More ribbons that I don't need. But I have never seen this type of rick-rack before. Just had to have them. Of course I couldn't decide on the colors, so I bought a little of each!
These are some new stencils I found at a super discount to add to the multitude I already own. Aren't they cute? I guess I will be using them with my pastes...
I patronized the Clear & Simple Stamp Company. It was the first time I had seen them at convention, and I think their stamp sets are so cute! There were so many more, it was a hard decision to make.
And last but not least...my card! This was a thank you card I sent to someone VERY special! ; )
