A Weekend of Creativity!
This was my first Retailer event (supporting my daughter's store) and what an experience it was! I attened 90 minute workshops with representatives from all the great companies lik Bo Bunny, Ranger Industries (Tim Hotlz) Clearsnap (Cathie Allen), We R Memory Keepers, Copic Markers, Graphic 45 (Diane Shultz)- all of my very favorite lines! The following are just some of the amazing things I got to create and the people I got to meet and talk to... Enjoy!
this is Diane Shultz, the owner and designer of all that Lovely Graphic 45 paper, and she is just a lovely in person! And below, standing beside me is her lovely Daughter Aimee, co-owner and Director of Operations of Graphic 45... Can you see the new PAPER line behind us? It is FANTASTIC!
Then there was the Ranger Class with Tim Holtz (yes in person!)
I learned sooo much in his classes that I will have to do a blog just on these techniques!
Here are some of the other projects that I got to start creating in our workshops and will continue to work on over the next few weeks... Enjoy!
This is a photo of the cover of a portfolio we created using Little Yellow Bicycle's new line "Twig" that is totally sold out all over north America, but don't worry we were told that Twig II is coming!
Here they are, Jennifer Garry & Laurel Mitchell. I loved both their teaching style and the wonderful tools we got to play with. watch for the new Brad setting tool - You NEED one! And if you like to stich on your projects you need to try out the Sew Easy! I am getting one for sure! In our class we used the Cinch to create this wonderful book from just some old cardboard, their new Mexican paper line and some looseleaf with the holes removed...
I will definitely be using this book for my next journal, or maybe Receipts? We added four divider pages that have pockets to hold stuff and that created sections in our book... LOVED IT! and done in 90 minutes!
