Good morning EVERYONE! HAPPY 1 AUGUST!!!! I had an awesome weekend at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Valley, Forge, PA. However, there were a few issues. The VENDOR FLOOR was HOT! Like, surface of the sun HOT! I was told that 21 of the 25 air conditioners on the floor were out of order! A women passed out from the heat! I didn't get to walk the entire floor as I wanted to because it was toooo darn HOT! This was a loss for myself (I could not spend the little money I had) and the vendors (They couldn't get my money!)
I took 4 AWESOME classes while I was there!
BOXER PALOOZA is a lecture style class, hosted by BOXER SCRAPBOOKS! This class usually sells out so hop on it fast. For an entire hour, Angie, one of the owners, will give you loads of products and tips. The BOXER PALOOZA pin that you receive at the end will entitle you to get a discount at the BOXER BOOTH while at the Convention!
I also took the SIMPLY COPIC SERIES offered by the amazing Nicki and Reenee, the mother-daughter owners of CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS. The series includes 3 classes. SIMPLY COPIC I--is an introduction to how to use your Copics. SIMPLY COPICSII--picks up where SIMPLY COPIC I left off and includes awesome tips and techniques. SIMPLY COPICS III--combines classes I & II (which are not necessary to attend for this class) You will learn how to use the airbrushing system with your Copics! In each class you will receive 3 Copic markers (different markers in each class) and a exclusive stamp set and awesome card projects!
Being new to COPICS, I gained a lot of knowledge on the use of my new obsession! Nicki (one of the owners) took the time out after the last class to show me a few tips on skin tone. I was finally able to complete a tag that I am working on for a Greeting Farm Swap that I am in with Linda S. (SCRAPCHICA) Hope everyone is having an awesome Monday! XOXOXO
Worked on my skin-tone coloring during the CK Convention Saturday night Crop! I still need a little practice though!
