A bit more vintage style

Now I've actually managed to start cutting the Graphic 45 papers........instead of stroking them......I'm really enjoying making these vintage style cards.....so many lovely images to choose from.......another 2 cards today.
And again used the lovely vintage tickets from Miss Cutiepie........and just a couple of embellishments....they hardly really need any.
This weekend sees The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace in London.....the biggest papercrafting show in the UK.....and the only one in the South East....at least 60 exhibitors.......loads of demos.......all the new products......far too many people......but you can't have everything!!!!
I'll be there on Saturday.....with my shopping list......can't wait.

Can't wait to hear how you get on at Ally Pally, I would love to go but it's just too busy for me. I'm loving the cards you've been making

Your first sentence is so funny Jacky! Yes, once you start in on a piece it becomes easier to keep cutting!

Great cards again today, enjoy the shopping experience!

Have a great time at the show! I'll think of you and your train ride - knowing that's not your favorite thing.
Love the Santa card!

Hope you find lots of nice things to go with your lovely vintage-y look. I don't think I'd ever be able to enjoy a gathering as huge and busy as this!

Super cards Jacky! Hope you have a great time at the scrappy show; hope its not too crowded.

Thanks so much for anniversary wishes!

The first cut is always the deepest, eh?!

Have a wonderful time at the show. There is one stand in particular I hope you will be calling at - stick your name in the draw, check out the sneak peek... :)

Lovely cards Jacky, I struggle with DS papers for the same reason, too much choice eh.

I love Ally Pally...in spite of the crowds!! But I tend to favour the Spring One as I don't really do too much specifically Christmas crafting & I find that's the main focus of the Autumn show. Have a fab day on Saturday...hope you get lots of bargains!! Do report back on the new 'Scrapbook 365' nagazine, who'll have a stand there!!!! ;)

You really know how to rock this style, which I always find difficult! Great cards.
