WOYWW 352 - I promised you new stuff!

Hello and welcome to March and another WOYWW  - Queen Julia has the info/link up here 

Sunday saw me heading to Stevenage for Stamperama - one of the nicest shows (although, not quite as good as it used to be, like so many seem to be these days)... BUT, Paperartsy were there...

you may have seen the previous post from Sunday itself but never fear, I will share the stash again!

 quite a small bag (size wise) - and only one bag!
 but what a lot was packed into it...
(the previous post has close ups and some pictures of the show itself)
and I've started playing with the stuff already - the tag is using the Paperartsy Infusions and one of the new Hot Pick stamps, christened by Leandra as "Shrek Girl"

A big thanks goes to WOYWW Caz who came along (great to meet you) and gifted me some EZ mount as no-one at the show had any for sale, following a FB conversation afterwards... now I just need to mount up the stamps (3 A6 Paparertsy plates) Thanks again, Caz.

Congrats on the one bag but lots of fun new toys to play with :) you should be a work for them showing off their products then they could just mail you goodies :)
happy early WOYWW hugs Nikki ??
Cute tags too must be a trend this week :)

Neet said...

Might only be the one bag but there was a lot of stuff in it. Off to see close ups.
Hugs Neet xx (thanks for the visit to mine)

In the picture I was immediately drawn to the queen stamp and coincidentally that is the one you used on the tag :-) Happy WOYWW Vicky #3

Hi Helen, lovely to see your Paper Artsy haul, I was sad to miss Stamperama this year, I was not up to it, due to an op a few weeks ago. It looks like you had a great time, and good to see you using your stash already.
I'm revisiting WOYWW after a long break, so trying to get around as many people as I can, Judith xx

J said...

Wow Helen, you sure managed to pack enough stash in a small bag, very envious as I've never had the chance to visit a craft show, maybe one day!!

Christine said...

Ho! Ho! Love the bag ..... that's why I stay away from shows!!!
I am still trying to organise my (small) room so that I can access the goodies I have. I love that you are playing already!
Have a good week

Caz said...

You did well with your "just one bag"!!
Good to finally meet you and be able to chat face to face instead of screen to screen
Happy to help out with the EZMount - glad it found a new home. We just need lots more hours now to play with it all

Have a good week


Julia Dunnit said...

here can't be many PaperArtsy products that you don't have! Would love a haul like that, although I'm on a stash diet at the moment, so I prolly am wanting it more than normal. I'm useless at the gothic stuff and the skulls are not for me, but on the whole, I thoroughly approve!

Sharon said...

I am so jealous! The show sounds like a lot of fun. All those goodies! You have a LOT of Paper Artsy stuff. I wish we could find more of it over here.

Have a great week

Tilly Tea Dance said...

Wow, looks like a fab range of new goodies to enjoy! Happy crafting, Max #46 :-)

Shoshi said...

I love seeing new stash - you are going to have such fun playing with all that, Helen, and it sounds as if you had a great time. I am trying to find out how to get my hands on some of those infusions paints and they are remarkably elusive - they are not on the Paper Artsy site. Thank you for your lovely encouraging comment and your kind words! It's really nice to be getting back into the swing of things again and taking up my guitar again is the latest indication that I am getting my life back! My poor fingers continue to suffer, though! I had a great time on the chemo unit this p.m. and my biscuits went down very well with everybody, staff included! I had some great conversations with several people too.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #28

Beverley Baird said...

Looks like a lot of wonderful supplies to play with! Sounds like a fabulous event.
Thanks so much for stopping by - happy WOYWW.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

1st..thank you for your kind comments last week. They meant a lot to me. WOW I love the close up photos of ALL that WONDERFUL stash...some I've never seen and like the quirky tag you have created. Peeped about prev. blogs and looks like great times. And I love looking at ALL crafty rooms Thanks for sharing. Have a fun week

Morti said...


Happy Thursday!

I'm not too good at getting around these days, so it's going to be late no matter what...

The question is - you buy so much new stash, when do you even get time to play with the old?

Thanks for stopping by!

Jill said...

wow, that looks like a lot of fun

glitterandglue said...

Teehee, Helen. I just love the way you are always showing us more goodies... Well done on just the one bagful. Now you can really have fun playing with it all.
Take care. God bless.

Bernice said...

Looks like you had a great day out! - enjoy playing with all your new stash.

okienurse said...

Love the bag of stash! I always swear I am only going to the shows to get more ideas but I always come home with a lot of stuff I really don't need...well I use it all so I must need it...right? Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! Vickie #58

Kyla said...

Oh that is a real skill....packing ALL that stash into that one little bag! Some lovely purchases, and I know what you mean about EZ mount its getting harder to find these days but glad you managed to get some in the end.

Thanks for visiting my desk already

butterfly said...

You certainly did pack a lot in to that bag - and I'm always so impressed with how you press your goodies into action immediately! Shrek girl is looking fab on the tag, and I'm definitely going to have to investigate the Infusions during my brief few days at home soon!

Holy moly, that is alot of new stuff! That's great that you've already had a play!

You might have to make your area a little larger.

Thanks for visiting me. I'm finally getting around and it will be Wednesday before I know it!

Clair said...

I think that you may have more in your bag of stamping stash additions than I have in my stamping stash! Clearly I need to spend more!

Thanks for visiting earlier in the week x
