CKC Oh What fun!!

Oh What fun it is to see familiar faces and play, making fun projects and learning new techniques and ideas at the same time. Bev and I went to CKC in Bellevue this past weekend and look who we saw there. Many other familiar faces were seen but the camera was not around. I sure hope you had as much fun as I did. There were so many people there all for the love of paper crafting. Some even came from far distances like Lynn above with Bev and I from the mid west.

Now that we are back we will be starting to work on some holiday projects. Keep watching for some ideas at the store and on the blog. The Christmas papers and embelishments are arriving at the store and we will be getting them out as soon as possible. In the mean time we still have plenty of Halloween and fall papers and embelishments to capture those great pumpkin and fall leaves pictures in your pages. Come see what we have.

Just a note that all Graduation is our 20% off special of the week so come on in and get yours today. Have a great day!!!

What a successful day!!

I just have to say Congratulations to Lila for a wonderfully successful event today!

I just got home! I am exhausted, but so exhilarated by the day at Lila's store. How exciting it was to see all the activity there. I didn't get to arrive til about noon. The store was already busy with a demo by Elisa, a designer from Clear Scraps. She brought samples of Clear Scraps acrylics and showed us how to emboss them and then use alcohol inks on them. The samples turned out beautifully. We now have them hanging in the front window where the sun catches the colors. Everyone was excited to watch her work.

Gwen showed everyone a different way to use alcohol inks by blending them on glossy papers. She also brought the new metallic inks to use. They were quite a hit. The samples she left are so beautiful. All the colors together are pretty amazing.

Margaret demo'd a tree punch and showed customers how to make a luminary. Everyone got quite creative with it, and each one was just a bit different. It was a beautiful item for everyone to take home.

There were times the aisles were so crowded it was hard to get thru. It really was a fun day. Lila planned it out very well. There was always something to see or do. Plus there seemed to be a drawing going on all the time. note: Make sure you check back in this week to see if you won something.

Overall, I just want to say what a great day it was. What great activities there. What a great first year it's been! Let's hope for lots more!

Congrats Lila!!!
