Great Weekend... Doodlebug Gossip!

Had a fantastic weekend, my friend Clare came over to craft... last time we got together we made 0 cards but talked a lot!!

After 24 hours we made 2 cards each and the first one wasn't made until nearly midnight, we talk too much!!!!!! I'm lucky I have a craft room left as she went away with a list of must haves!

Anyway she twisted my arm to go up to Capture The Magic, haven't been since November so it was long over due... we planned to only have a quick look round... 2 1/2 hours later we came out!!

Anyway the exciting news was that we came across the new Doodlebug releases and OMG I want it all!!

Velvet looks like going to be an in crafty thing of 2008... There are new papers in some lovely colours, one type has swirls on the paper but I think the swirls will be raised velvet!!

Gorgeous matching ribbons, 7 ribbons on a card 1 yard each, all in a colour theme one of the ribbons has a swirly print on them... they are really really nice!

Velvet brads - 12 colours and then 2/3 mixutre sets (like the bling ones but velvet and there is pink).

Bottles of velvet fluff (these are like the bottled glitters) they are gorgeous... they had 4 colours on the table and they were gorgeous!

Chipboard shapes which have sticky on both sides so you can add glitter/velvet to it and it will stick to the board... I'm sure they were themed too and there was an alpha set.

Velvet paper - like the glitter paper but yummy velvet!

No stamps which was a bit of a disappointment as I love their stamps!

No clue when they will be released, didn't think to ask... we were both so excited drooling over the book that I didn't think to ask... proably be around April sort of Ally Pally time (I hope!)!

I'll have to show you a piccie of my stash, I got some lovely papers!!
