Stitches 2012

I spent last weekend at Stitches - Creative Hobby and Stitch at Birmingham NEC. We arrived in  Birmingham bright and early on Saturday morning with plenty of time for a little retail therapy which started in the Bull Ring shopping centre. A bull made of Jelly Beans.

Then it was on to the NEC for a fabulous afternoon of crafting. In our first workshop with T!m we made this great little wall hanging made up of two mini canvases which we decorated using lots of yummy Ranger products including the fab new distress pens, love em, they are a real must have for any crafter.

In our second workshop we altered a book with Dyan.
We used Dyans wonderful Dylusions stamps, stencils and sprays.

We made 4 pockets within the pages 

and decorated some tags.

to pop inside the pockets.

Thanks T!m and Dyan for a wonderful afternoon of craftiness.

Happy crafting Hugs Lynne xox
