Just a quick update and upload of some photos of the Creative Expressions Stand at 'Stitches' Trade show NEC Birmingham Feb2011 where the launch of the first range of Tatty Button stamps and interactive cd took place.

I had a great two days mooching around all the other stands, checking out new products coming out soon (some really great stuff happening!), meeting up with the wonderful design team and staff at Creative Expressions...and chatting to customers.

A BIG THANKYOU goes to all at Creative Expressions for making this happen...and to the amazingly talented team who created some fabulous card examples...each with their own individual look. I hope you are as proud of this as I am!
The Creative Expressions Stand - Five demo tables with Nigel from Card Creations, Spellbinders guest demonstrator, Jo Channon, Karen Lines and Sue Wilson...all doing a sterling job of exhibiting the new Creative Expressions lines and products....including Tatty Button, of course! You can just see me chatting to Karen (I'm the red head with the black&grey check shirt).
HERE SHE IS! The Tatty Button display! I love the look of the packaging, nice clean lines in simple colours that make the images pop! Inside you will find a precut AND mounted stamp (YAY! no need messing around trying to cut out and stick onto foam yourself), plus two examples of cards you can make.
TWO WONDERFUL LADIES! - Jo and Karen, taking a breather from a second day of demoing.
Tatty Button card examples made by the talented designers at Creative Expressions.Well, we know what WE can do with her...I'm now looking forward to what everyone else can make!
ME! - Day two, standing by the Tatty display...looking rather sheepish and having a bad hair day...and hating having my photo taken gggrrrrrrr!
Some of my cards and projects were on display on Karen's table. I wanted to show that the stamps were just a good used on dimensional projects, as they were for card craft

ON THE BIG SCREEN! - The interactive cd, created by the lovely Nigel of Card Creations who launched and demoed the product. There's some very interesting and new features on this, not previously seen on their cd products. Great job Nigel!
Sue Wilson and Karen Lines busy at work with demos. More wonderful and pretty Tatty Button card examples.
IN GOOD COMPANY! - Tim and Tatty products were display neighbours.

    We were at stitches and bought your whole range of stamps and the interactive DVD. So excited. we are going to have a DEMO day too so all our customers here at InkSpot in Hamilton can see the Tatty range and the lovely cards that can be made!
    Congrats on a truly lovely range x

  9. Nice to put a face to a name Ange, you look great.It's pay day tomorrow so I need to save some for your gorgeous stamps, but where do I get them. I just know they're going to be sooooo popular. xx

  10. I have put a post up above this one explaining and link to where you can find out about stockists. The Products are being sent out to retailers as I type this, so hitting shop shelves and websites hopefully within the next few weeks (depending on how quick the shops put them on display!). As for my artwork...that's still WIP as I want to establish the brand via the craft products forst....so there will be originals, prints and hopefully a small selection of cards available in the coming months.

    Thank you again for all your support.
