CHA 2012

It's hard work doing all this research for the shop and bringing you guys brand new products and techniques. I know you all feel very sorry for us and would like to come instead just to help us out and we really do appreciate the offer but we wouldn't want to burden you with the responsibility!! So we're taking it one day at a time and will report back as soon as we can.
Firstly, watch out for up and coming instore classes using brilliant kits from companies with product lines that can produce great projects like this:
Kaisercraft have this awesome desktop spinney tidy thing which looks amazing:
this picture doesn't show it off that well but hopefully I'll have more shots to show you in the next couple of days.
Penny Black have again come up top-trumps with some amazing stamp designs and Elizabeth from Penny Black has created these wonderful samples which show the designs off perfectly:
These designs are being prep'd for uploading on our website as we speak, keep an eye on the What's New section for pre-ordering info.
Graphic 45 is a new company for us and I was impressed with their papers and projects on their stand:
One of the hottest new products on the market has to be the Distress Inks formula in a marker pen. Absolutely amazing results. Check this out:

and here's some info from Tim about his Distress Markers: "...available individually or as a set. these markers have many of the amazing qualities you've come to love with distress like being reactive with water to allow for amazing blending and shading, and of course coloring on directly on to your stamps and stamp with them. the dual tips are a flexible brush nib on one end for great coloring effects, and a plastic detailed nib on the other for journaling or fine detail work. these new distress markers are available in 37 colors... 37? oh yes, all 36 classic distress palette colors and white picket fence (just wait until you see what this cool white marker does with the other colors)..."
Additionally, one just for you Lisa, is the Ebosser:
It's an electric die cutting machine that will hold die cutting sandwiches big enough for the bigz and bigz xl dies but also wide enough to accommodate the grand nesties - perfect.

Here's a couple of little snippets to show you it in action.

What this space for availability, price etc etc...

Here's another product that our Lisa will love. It's a hot glue gun that plugs into your USB port on your computer. Great if you are on the go and don't have a plug socket but do have your laptop with you. It has a steady and fine glue flow for greater control AND no dripping when you complete your line of glue.
Sizzix have plenty of new dies coming out. Again keep an eye on the What's New section of our website. Here are some snippets of projects that the Sizzix DT have come up with:
Also we are loving the Wendy Vecchi designs:
There are some amazing little dies coming onto the marker that match the 'art gone wild' designs but also great to use with other designs:
Darcie's have some wonderful stamp designs and papers coming out too:
Coming soon instore, Stamper's Anonymous designs by Tim Holtz including this wonderful steam engine and plenty of other designs suitable for steampunk projects:

Right then, off to find more goodies, I'll be back... Don't forget to keep an eye on the What's New section of Sir Stampalot over the next couple of weeks

Oh my Janice! Looks like I'm going to have to do a mega amount of penny saving with such an amazing lot of new products.
I adore Distress inks which never get put away due to constant use so those markers will be on my wish list.
Thanks for the update.

Wow I can see I will need Becki to get a bigger car for my trip up to you in March. Perhaps I had better do a bit more work when I am there to help pay for it all lol.
