Updated links to cagalogs, etc.
Since my last blog, I attended CHA in Chicago and the Scrapbook Royalty Crop. Had a great time at both and met a lot of great people. I was blown away by all the products I saw at the show.
Last month I attended a Shoebox Swap in Hartford WI. We made some beautiful cards and had some optional swaps and lots of great door prizes. Attendees vote on their favorite of each swap. Shoebox, ABC, Altered Notebook, 6x6 Recipe Card, Unique Technique and Lottery (Secret Sister). My Lottery item was voted the best.
I made a 'gumball' machine using terra cotta planters. The base is the planter turned upside down and the top is the dish that goes under the planter. The glass globe is a small plant bowl. I filled it with M&M's. I used some metal sheets and cut the hardware. Square punch and Round Tab Extra Large, Hodgepodge Hardware and the acrylic adhesive bubble from the Build-A-Bear. Also used some M&M stickers. The wire basket was filled with assorted stamping items.
For the ABC I made some square boxes using the Scallop Square Die and fabric. They fold up for storage and will hold scraps, pens, etc.
Off to see what I can do next.
