So I had a TON of fun at Scrap Fest... but I'll be honest, there was work to be done too!
And you wouldn't think sitting in a chair all day would be hard... but when you make over 1000 make and takes (OK, not alone, I will admit) over 3 days, you start to get sick of the sound of your own voice! :)
We told EVERY person that did a make and take all the attributes of the Epiphany tools and all the shapes of the Epoxy Shape makers and Button Studio tools! EVERY ONE!
I must love these tools! Hee!
And I have the best bosses! It's been great at these shows! Not a bad gig!
ANYWAY, I got to meet some great people-and got to visit with some that I already knew-and got to hang out with some too!
Here is Emily Pitts! I lurk her blog all the time! Poor thing couldn't get away from me! All joking aside, she is so very nice! Just imagine, she is as nice as she is creative! (Uber!)
Thanks for putting up with me Emily!
These girls crack me up! The Scrap Fest crew for Imaginsce!
Hard to get away from Sponge Bob at the Nick park! :)
She couldn't resist! :)
It is REALLY hard not to look at this picture and snort! I mean really! My breasts @ zero gravity (and that EXPRESSION!) and Brian "playing dead"-and Michelle Hill's joyous expression! How do ya not smile at this! Too funny!
And how do ya resist the big corny scrapbook page prop? Ya don't, apparently!
So there is my weekend recap!
And right after the weekend, Imaginsce launched it's new release "Bon Voyage"! I will say this is one of my ALL TIME favorites of Imaginisce! Great line of paper and embellishment! And Stamps!
Speaking of stamps... for this layout I stamped the cloud (several times) and the airplane with embossing medium and then used clear embossing powder.... heated, let dry and then sprayed with Tattered Angels Denim Blue spray mist. Then I thought the plane should be highlighted more, so I colored him in with my Marvy pens! That's it! easy Peasy!
I did this technique some time back that appeared in a layout in the July Scrapbook Trends... It is a favorite technique of mine with Kraft paper, as it is a more subtle look.
This time I did a 8 1/2 x 11 horizontal. Not my usual, but I work best for both the picture, and the paper. Love this paper! It started out with the embossed items on the patterned paper, and it was VERY easy to add embellishment from this line to the layout!
Lots of great die cuts and layered stickers.
There ya have it! Be sure to check out the Imaginsce Blog for LOTS of inspiration AND a chance to win some of the great line for yourself!!
