My sister just showed me this as it is coming near her. There are a lot of locations in the states so thought I would put it here for anyone who may be interested but unaware:

Sherie, do you plan on going?
I wrote down for the one in the spring as my niece lives in Burlington and it would not be hard to visit her and go to it.

Yeah, Jeannie and I are going this weekend in Milwaukee! I can't wait. Will be doing some shopping for our Christmas card making weekend two weeks later. (not sure if you saw our thread last year but we get together with our mother. Each of us comes up with 3 designs and then we do the cutting and prep work so that everyone can make 4 cards of each design. We all do our own stamping and coloring or whatever the technique is just the grunt work is done ahead of time by the designer. This year is really special because our sister from Texas is coming up for it! Our other sister is also coming but she doesn't get into making cards so she is going to get meals ready, be our all around gofer, and address envelopes!!

You guys got a handle on every thing, don't you?
Won't get into any card making until my flower beds are cleaned up and bulbs and peony bushes in the ground.
We are leaving for home tomorrow. Nice to go, but so much nicer to come home.

Let me know what you do on the make n takes and what new things are displayed, ok?

Maxine, We had a WONDERFUL time!! We both figured we would be there for maybe 2 hours and we were there for 6 hours!! We both spent way more money than we thought we would too! LOL

There were some places that just had your run of the mill stuff but plenty that had some really neat stuff too.

I don't think you could be disappointed if you went. We went to Wal Mart first and got a $20 suitcase that has the pull out handle and wheels. We were both REALLY glad we did that! It was so much easier to put stuff we bought in there and pull it behind us than to carry bag after bag in our hands.

The spring expo already has one or two classes listed so I am hoping for more as it gets closer to that time. This one didn't have any classes at all. A lot of the vendors had make and takes set up but we only did one of those. We would have been there forever if we had done them all!!

The shirt was made with one rubber stamp. The back of the shirt also has all the details of a real shirt. It is just so cool!! They had other types of shirt stamps as well. I really want to get the hoodie one too.

This shows how it opens:

The next two were made with holographic stickers. The details are part of the sticker and are either gold or silver (sorta the same effect you would get with embossing powder). The holographic part is sorta clear so you put the sticker on the paper to get the colors you want out of it. In this first card, the paper behind the sticker is the same as the outer pink paper on the card (got these papers there as well)

This is the last of the cards I have made using things I got Saturday. I got a package with 4 patterns for Iris Folding that are made to look like popular quilt patterns.

I will take some photos tomorrow - I promise!

But I can tell you I picked up a Big Shot (by Sizzix) with an add-on package to do their big dies for a very good price! One booth there was demonstrating a project using acrylic sheets. She embossed half of it (the front of the card) then used a magnetic "window" cutter to cut a four pane window in the front of the card. It was very pretty (darn it - I should have picked up some acrylic sheets!!)

Other than that, I got stickers and papers like Sheri, five new colors of smooches, two stamps that work together from the same place Sheri got the shirt stamp, and a bunch of embossing plates for the Big Shot!

Oh we saw some of those 'Just Rite' wood stamps at the Scrapbooking show! How well do they work? Are they easier/better than the acrylic stamps?

Totally different outfit. The first card was made using the 'JustRite" stamper. I think that their is a place for them in stamping. I am going to get some more. Lots of different ways to use them.
Look up the web site of "JustRite" to get ideas, ok?

In the class of making 7 or more cards from a piece of card stock measuring 12" we always make a basket to put the cards in, in case one wishes to gift the cards.
Some times I do, but mainly I keep them for inspiration

Thanks so much for your lovely complement.

You're welcome.
Need to get started on some cards, but cleaned lily beds yesterday and today DH visits the surgeon. His right hip is coming loose. This will make the third hip replacement on that hip. 2 on the other hip.
Surgeon said he worked too hard when a very young kid and bones didn't develop like they should

Maxine, sorry for your DH! Hope this surgery will be successfull. I also make these kind of baskets, like my mom used to do when I was a kid. Here's an article I wrote about it last year if you want to see :

Oh thank you so much for your article. Will read more thoroughly when I have more time. Wonder when that will be?
Have to volunteer drive today and will of course visit my favorite stamping store and see what they have for the "make n take" cards.

Have a great day.
