~ Scrapbook Expo

On Friday, I attended the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton, CA. I had only heard about it a couple of days before and wanted to try to takes some work shops. I was able to get into Quick Quotes "Canvas Al A Carte" Workshop. This class was so much fun! Here are the pictures of my unfinished project:

Here are some pictures of what the project will look like when it is complete.

Here is what I purchased for my daughter, with my 10% off coupon. So cute!

After the work shop, I walked around doing "Make~N~Take" projects. This is where you sit down and make a small project. Sometimes for a fee and other times for Free.

Here is my first Make~N~Take that I did with "My Daughter's Wish" The fee was $5.00 and this is a cute Tag with a small tag book. I still need to add the ribbon at top, I did not like the ribbon they had there and knew I had plenty at home.

Next I did a Make~N~Take by Close to My Heart which was an adorable card, I just love the colors. My daughter also did this one on Saturday, see below for her Make~N~Takes.

The next Make~N~Take I did was FREE!! Heartstring Design had this adorable Clover shaker that I made in less than 60 seconds!

Then it was on to Chino Scrapbook Company there cute Paperclips were a must Make! This was another project that was quick and easy to do!

The next Make~N~Take for $2.00 was such a great little project. I bought 1 more of the one I did and 2 of the other coaster book to do at home with my daughter. S.E.I. has some great velvet papers and really cute iron-ons.

Here is the Make~N~Take that I didn't do there, but bought 2 to make at home with my daughter.

Here is what I purchased from them including the Awesome Monthly kit! I will get these every month because I signed up for Club S.E.I.

My last Make~N~Take of the day was with Kits to Remember or K2R their cute acrylic 4x4 albums were also a must MAKE!

I actually learned about the Expo from Jessica Guthrie's Blog. I had actually really liked her blog and products so much that I emailed her and let her know I was available Friday to work. I asked for Jessica after I had finished my Make~N~Take to meet her and let her know it was me who had sent her the email. She needed someone on Saturday and my plans had changed, so I told her I would be happy to help her out. I am so glad I did!! Jessica and her parents are absolutely delightful. If you ever get to take a class from her or meet her, you will see that her smile is so infectious and she is very helpful with questions. I was so proud to wear the K2R Krew shirt for the day! I had a lot of fun and offered to help Jessica anytime she has a show in Northern CA.

After using the Bind-It-All, I knew I wanted one. I imagined all the projects that this tool would help me to complete! I got the Bind-It-All kit from K2R.

Here are my daughter's Make~N~Take projects from Saturday.

All in all, it was a great weekend! I am so glad I found out about it! I am hoping to go to the one in SAC whether or not I work for K2R.
