Michelle found an acrylic frame at the dollar store and said that our rub-ons transferred really nicely onto it. She then placed the adhesive pearls (they come in the same package) on top. How cool! Her little tag book uses the rub-ons too. Thanks Michelle for the inspiration!!
Congrats Barb! And thanks so much to everyone for all your wonderful comments. We were overwhelmed with all the kind comments and interest. In fact you inspired us so much that we've decided to host more giveaways in the future. We have a new collection in the works with K&Company so more to share with you soon. We'll tell our online partners about the next giveaway to get the word out but please check in from time to time or just click on the follow button to link to this blog and receive update notices.
Mario and I have been part of this amazing scrapbooking community since 2003 and we can't believe how many inspiring and artistic people we've met and continue to meet. Together we inspire each other to create lovely memory pieces that will be passed from generation to generation as priceless art glimpses of our time and best moments shared. In this way scrapbooking is so much more than an art craft. Scrapbook projects and pages are really glimpses of us at our best celebrating life and love. Stay inspired all and congrats again Barb for winning this sweetheart giveaway.
I have one kit left from our CHA sold-out mega workshop that took place in California last week. I dragged it home in my suitcase and now would like to give it to someone who is feeling creative. Just leave a comment below and I'll draw a name next Monday February 14th!
Back in December, I used the same kit contents to create the "Sweethearts" mini book and then wrote the 6 pages of instructions (with color pics and templates) with hopes that others would be inspired to create their own mini-book. K&Company and the EK Success education team did an awesome job overseeing the project and donating all the kits for our event. Thanks Joy and Tara!
So this is what you can make with the kit. Actually, there is enough product in the kit that you could easily make 2 books - just switching up a couple of the embellishments OR use the left overs for layouts and cards. Here are some images from the inside book pages. It's designed as a Love/Romance theme book, perfect for celebrating "amore" at any time of year!
I placed the instructions to make this mini book in the left column here on my blog. Go to: Published Articles and Project Instructions: Free Instructions to download to find the pdf file.
We're back from sunny California and CHA (Craft and Hobby Association trade show). The Los Angeles Convention center was the venue for the winter show which was a switch-up from past years in Anaheim.
Located in downtown LA, we were able to walk to LA Live for special events. We went to the Conga Room and were amazed by the architecture - it was a dynamic backdrop for the Global Gathering: International Reception that we attended.
One of the focal points in the Conga Room is this glowing structure that ascends to the ceiling. The steps of the latin rumba dance were the inspiration for the diamond pattern that dazzles the room. Who knew ??
But there was work to do too and we were participating in a mega workshop featuring Canadian designers, manufacturers and publishers. Here are some pics from our display table where we showcased our new collection from K&Company. They were so generous and provided fabulous kits for each of the 75 participants. I have one left to give away, so I'll blog about that tomorrow.
