Yeah, yeah… Just because I spent the majority of my weekend with paper, does not mean that you can poke fun at me. 😉 As a matter of fact, it was some great times with friends! What’s even better is that I got a lot done!
Friday, I finished a mini album sample for Punky Sprouts. I was asked to play with Surf’s Up by Best Creations, and if you haven’t seen it before, you are going to love the glitter to these papers. They look great! When I started this mini album, I didn’t have any photos to work with, so Suzy gave me some of her beach photos.
Can you believe that I actually finished a mini album at a crop!? …but then again, I was there until a little past midnight, haha!
Early Saturday morning, I was forced to wake up and head on over to Suzy‘s place. We needed to leave early for the Kick Off Crop at the grand opening of Art Inspired Studios! It was a drive, but we made it early to help set up. The store looks AMAZING! It’s beautiful, and I’m so happy for Diana and Patti. ((Congratulations, girls!))
I got around to finishing the mini album that I will be teaching at their store at the beginning of August. It features Echo Park Paper and Zutter. If you like what you see, I hope to see some of you there!
Remember These Moments of Love. Saturday, August 7th @ 2 – 4 pm. $25, everything included.
Cute mini album, right?! 🙂 The colors to these papers are so bright and fresh, and it’s great for all those summer photos! …and no, it’s not just limited to using pet photos!
As for the Kickoff Crop, it was a blast! Great company, awesome store, and a Canon rep?! It can’t get any better than that. Gina, a Canon representative, came to the store, and she allowed us to print photos of all sizes for free! I went picture happy, and I stocked up on photos, hehe. Anyway, here are some photos from the event:
I told you it was a GORGEOUS store! If you are in the Brentwood area, make sure to head on over there. They have tons of new product that you are all going to LOVE. Besides, supporting local scrapbook stores helps the industry in more ways than you know. You always hear about stores shutting down, but you hardly hear about them opening up. Shop local to prevent stores from having to close their doors.
See! I told y’all it was a productive fun-filled paper weekend. I even finished a couple of layouts, which I’ll save for a future post.
…and I picked a random winner to a Punky Sprouts book.
Congrats, karin! You’re gonna have a lot of fun designing with this one. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
PS: Who’s watching the World Cup?! If you are, who are you cheering for?!
Oh, and last night I got another email requesting for one of my projects to be published in an upcoming magazine! I can’t wait to see that one in print too.
