We had so much fun at the scrapbooking fair in Des Moines on Saturday. It was not a huge event, but we still liked it. I didn't buy as much as I thought I might. There were a lot of scrapbooking kits to purchase. Since I like making my own, I wasn't tempted at those booths. Here are my buys for the day:
I was hoping to find this in 12 x 12 form, but they only had the 4 x 6 option. I can't wait to use this on parentheses and arrows.
I liked this bottle of glitter, because it has a small tip like the liquid glass bottle I own and it lets the colors show through.
These pastels are like chalks, but they are easier to work with. I won't need a fixadent with them and I don't have to wash out the brush going from color to color.
We completed the following create-n-takes:
I think this was from The Angel Company booth. They sell paper, stamps sets and embellishments. I think they are a direct sales company like CTMH and SU.
This is from the SU booth. This demonstrator was very talented and we got to make a chipboard frame. I like the little metal paper holder that is on the left side. The paper is from their Halloween collection. It is double-sided with stripes on the other side.
We made this card at the Archivers booth. I really like the colors.
We created a double page layout at the Close To My Heart booth. This was great, because now I know I like the stamp sets, Little Spooks and Hallow-scream, we used. We watercolored the witch and frankenstein with an aquapainter and ink pads. The only way I changed the layout was putting buttons on after I got home, instead of the leaves they provided. I like the buttons better.
Now, I have a layout for Halloween pictures this year already!
Boy, I just love to go to scrapbook fairs. My sister and I are talking about a Creating Keepsakes one next year.
