Kirstie Allsop's Handmade Fair, Manchester 19-21 November

 

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well. I took a few photos of projects I made for the Artcuts stand at Kirstie Allsop's Handmade Christmas Fair at Manchester Central last weekend. I had a great time demonstrating and chatting to lots of lovely ladies and families and also helping out on the make and takes. It was a lovely event. In the central square beside the beautiful Gothic revival style town hall the Christmas Market had started and we had a treat of a hot cherry and amaretto drink to keep us warm, it was very cold and we even had a tiny bit of snow. It was my visit to Manchester and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On the Stand Christmas tree I made a heart bunting stamped with Hobby Art Stamps 'Fergus' bear and coloured with Versamagic inks. There's a liberal coating of Wink of Stellar pen too.

Amongst many other things I decorated a couple of gift bags with Hobby Art stamps and Artcuts label and pieces from the Christmas embellishments pack.

More bunting this time for the sponsored foyer tree which we decorated in red and green. Wish I'd taken photos inside of the trees.

There were many more samples which I'll hopefully get to photo later. A couple of photo grids of photos around central Manchester, I found the architecture very appealing, enjoyed the Christmas market very much and all the trees were covered in white twinkling lights which were all around the city centre. I look forward to visiting again.

I'm back tomorrow with my make for the Paperbabe Stamps challenge, see you then.
