All set up at HSE in Germany!


Well, I’ve had the busiest day over at HSE in Munich (Germany) – i’ve got lots of shows on tomorrow, so I thought i’d share some behind the scenes pictures with you!
Tomorrow is a really big day for me as it will be the first time i’ve done my own whole-hour shows so it means i’ve got loads and loads of great products on there! Lots of things that I regularly demonstrate on Create & Craft, and also lots of products that you won’t have seen me on there with before…!
My first show at 10am is launching the Sizzix Texture Boutique Starter Kit – which is a FANTASTIC kit and I can’t wait to get going on my demonstrations…

I’ve got LOADS of fantastic samples to show as well – you get lots of Core’dinations cardstock in the kit, as well as some embossing folders, the machine itself and lots of accessories, so there’s plenty to demonstrate with!

I’ll be showcasing the new Core’dinations Christmas packs alongside the Sizzix kit because they work perfectly together. Big thank you to Nandia and Lou from our DT for their help with samples!
Then i’ll be launching the Mix & Mingle range from our sister company Beader’s Companion – I know Sarah Millsop will be watching and scrutinising my every move!

We’re doing the same kit in Germany as we launched on Ideal World a few weeks ago, and i’ve got a feeling it’s going to fly!

Then because it went so well last time, i’m also showcasing more Paint Fusion products from Sheena Douglass on her behalf. We’ve got a starter kit on the show and I have to thank lovely Linda Hill for making me some fabulous samples for the show!

Now, obviously it’s not just me on HSE tomorrow, they’ve also got lots of other craft guests showcasing new products, and the Rens Family are doing lots of shows too, and as I was leaving, Saskia Rens was putting the finishing touches to the Humphrey Die Cut Decoupage Kit which has already been a massive hit in Germany! (Saskia and her Dad Cornelius are from Reddy cards who make the die-cut decoupage that we bring to Create & Craft!)

Her samples are lovely, but isn’t it so different to how we have samples in the UK! They love their small A6 cards in Germany!

And Cornelius was busy preparing his tables with the Christmas Easel Die Cut Decoupage Kits which are also on air thisevening…

And i’m so excited, because I am doing my own hours, they have made me a permanent part of the furniture at HSE and that means I get my own box to leave all my goodies here… (I know that doesn’t sound very exciting, but if you see how much luggage I have to bring every time I come, then you’d understand!)

And finally, I didn’t get a chance to snap her with my camera before she left, but Barbara Grey is doing her first shows on HSE tomorrow too, and she set her table up and then was going back to her hotel to get an early night ready for shows early tomorrow morning! We’re on together at 10am!

I promise to take more behind the scenes pictures tomorrow and update you when I can!
Signing off for now… Sara xx
