Mr Postie delivery for the SECC......



Woohoo.... Mr Postie arrived with a big bag of goodies for me this morning from Fiskars... oh what do I have to add to my collection to play with at the SECC in 10 days time.... hhhmmmmm well let's see.... oh yeah... and the best is at the bottom of this post... lol





This is my new portable A4 paper trimmer... nothing exciting I know but definately an essential piece of kit....




Then there are a few scrapboss templates... including a winter one just in perfect timing for christmas




A few shapecutter templates... again a christmas one so perfect timing...




Ohhh... some yummy wee christmas stamps...




Now this is one of the new squeeze punches... and I'm sure the owl will be in great demand...




Here is another.. this time a little bird and not sure if this will be even more popular than the owl... well... it could be a wee robin red breast on the christmas cards couldn't it... then he's also perfect for all year round




Now this is where things get really quite interesting... if you're a fan of QVC you may already have seen these in action... if not... here's a quick run down of what they do... what's it called...
EVERYWHERE WINDOW PUNCH
This piece of equipment comes as 3 pieces as pictured above.



This section here is part of what holds your page in place with the use of some magnets... this ensures that you page does not move during the punching process... smart thinking eh...




This is your base section which you place underneath your paper or card





Then you connect your additional plastic magnetic holder on top... your page is now secured in position and this is the time that you want to ensure your placement is correctly ligned up before punching.





Next up you add the punch itself which simply slots into place on the top





Then push....




Here's a simple piece of photocopy paper that I used to punch out the shapes just to give you an idea of what they are like....
Hopefully you'll be able to see them in action for yourself at either the SECC or the NEC....
In the meantime... I think I best get myself in motion.. got lots of samples to make now that my goodies have arrived... any excuse.... lol...
Catch you all later
Love 'n' hugs
