Picture to Page Bendigo Show Highlights

Crafters, craft supplies, sunny skies and wonderful traders - you just KNOW you're in a special place when you walked into the Picture to Page show in Bendigo - this was our first show for 2015 and it exceeded all of our expectations!

After arriving in sunny Kangaroo Flat on a Friday afternoon, it was time to get ourselves and our Traders ready for the Picture to Page Scrapbooking and Papercrafts Show.

Saturday morning was calm and there was a feeling of expectancy in the air.

Our Picture to Page team member Pauline was ready at the door - there was even a queue to get in as opening time approached!

The first stop for many crafters was the Little Bits stand - Lesley was demonstrating graduated glitter and Lyn had the Pan Pastels make-n-takes in full swing.

Then the Mixed Media Art stand was demonstrating Gelli plate printing with stencils and paints - they had lots of pretty colours!

Irene at Manor House Creations has wonderful papers.

Cathy and her Bellbird Place team drew a crowd with her demonstrations.

The Society of Folk & Decorative Artists had a great class where you could paint your own art journal cover.

Liz brought along her lovely silk and marbled papers.

The Close to my Heart team had a stunning stand to share their latest product ranges. (Maybe we need a "Best in Show Stand" award for the next show - these guys would have won it, for sure!)

Paperzone were showing off their exquisite creations made from a range of their cutting dies - stunning pieces!

Sonia from The Craft Emporium also did a range of demonstrations, as well as showing off their latest class offerings.

Cherished Frames had a lovely range of chipboard pieces that can be decorated to suit your needs and assembled with ease!

Kaszazz's Julie and her team had a great display of projects and products.

The Flutterbuys girls were surrounded by lovely embellishments, papers and ribbons of all shapes and sorts.

And last, but not least, our crafters found themsleves in the LynDel 3D Cardmaking stand.

Finally, our visitors make their way to the canteen to buy a scrummy snack, lunch or a coffee and rest their feet, while looking through their purchases and sharing their finds and make-n-takes with their friends. 

It was a lovely weekend and thank you to all of those who shared it with us!

Happy creating,
Michelle and the P2P Team
