Archiver’s Scrapbook Wrap Up

Well, we did it! Made it though the busy, busy mega weekend of Make-it-Take-it participants at Archiver’s Scrapfest in Minneapolis. In three days, we taught 2100 to 2200 projects. I can’t give you an exact number, because we were prepping extra projects to fill in each day. I’m probably under estimating our numbers. I’ve never seen anything like it! WOW! Mark Richards Crystal Stickers Rhinestones and Crystal Stickers Pearls absolutely ROCK! I hope all you fabulously creative scrappers agree!

Archiver’s sure puts on a great show, and it looked like everyone had a great time. We received lots of compliments on our Mark Richards Enterprises Crystal Sticker card projects, and the fact that we kept our line moving quickly.

I enjoyed meeting so many of you, and hope you visit the blog and sign up for my 14 Weeks of Prizes Contest. Who knows, YOU may be the next lucky winner! Which reminds me, I need to post a few more winners, and their prizes. Check back middle of next week to see who won!

I’m headed back home tomorrow, and will be sewing all week, working on the sewing program I can’t tell you about yet! And, I’ll be working on the Christening Dress for my grandaughter Katie’s christening. I’ll try to post pictures of it – I’ll be hand smocking again for the first time in about 25 years. The last time I smocked, was to make a dress for Katie’s mom, my daughter Laura. I hope I still remember everything. I’ll be sewing on a brand new Janome Memory Craft 9500, can’t wait!

Stay tuned for lots of project how-to’s I’ll be posting on the Scrapfest projects later next week. Till then, here are some pictures to peruse from Scrapfest.

Happy Crafting,


Scrapfest was a flurry of activity, and a blast of color and creativity. Beautiful blooms from Prima were just a sampling….

Consumers choose their Prima flowers for a scrapbook page….so many choices!

I so love Little Yellow Bicycle Papers! Look at these clever pinwheels and cupcakes from their new Cupcakes paper line……..yummy!

Here is Lori Marek from Little Yellow Bicycle. Thanks Lori, for getting me paper for our Mark Richards card project. The consumers loved your Free Spirit Paper!

When you love what you do, it’s a joy to teach. Here are two demonstrators from Hero Arts. What great smiles, they are lovin’ what they do!

Here’s David Ross at Doodlebug. What a happy bunch!

Check this out at Unity Stamps – a very crafty Unity Stamp dude showing the Make/Take project. Ya gotta love it!

Graphic 45 was our neighbor and they also had a really busy Make/Take.

Here are Julie and Patt at the Mark Richards booth showing consumers how to use Crystal Stickers Rhinestones and Pearls. Can’t you tell they are having fun?
