This week’s CKC convention in Portland was awesome! I helped Carole & Jodie of Sharin’ Memories with their Exploding Box class at the convention. Over 90 ladies took the class, which was taught once on Friday and again on Saturday.
I took a few classes, one by Paper Crafts (Birthday Extravaganza), which was excellent. We created a one-page layout, card and tag out of the same small group of supplies.
I also took Piggy Tales’s class to make an Asian-themed mini album. We were able to finish the album in the one-hour class. The only part left is to add pictures!
The Technique Tuesday class that I took was very fast paced, which is OK, but we didn’t complete any of the five cards in class. However, I did learn some new techniques for making chipboard buttons and ways to customize ribbon and new ways to stretch out acrylic stamp sets.
I won a door prize in each of the classes…too funny! One was a set of chipboard letters, another was a set of stickers to use in card making. I also won a $20 acrylic stamp set!
The Seattle CKC isn’t until November, which gives me plenty of time to recover and to use all of the cool stuff I bought this weekend!
