One of a Kind Virtual Facebook Event Recap

Thanks to Brian and Carol from the One of a Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo for hosting their first virtual event today on Facebook. It was fun to be a presenter and share my One Sheet Wonder Create Along with Me. Here is what I created during the session…

IMG_0968

That’s 9 cards from one sheet of Peaceful Poppies designer series paper!

Here is the scrap map for cutting the dsp. Follow the circled numbers to make the cuts at the designated inch mark.

IMG_0963

I’ll also shared a scrapbook layout using a second, magnificently printed paper with 2 rows of poppies that can be cut in half.

IMG_0964IMG_0965

The scrapbook layouts did not use a full sheet of dsp for the photo mats and only a few pieces of cardstock.

These are the supplies I started with to create the cards: 9 card bases, 9 inside whisper white card liners, 9-5×4 inch solid color cardstock that has been embossed, 2-4×4 inch solid color cardstock, 9 punched pieces large enough for your sentiment, 9 pieces of about 3.75 inch ribbon, 1-12×12 inch boldly printed designer series paper, self adhesive embellishments, stamp set with sentiments, ink pad and personal trimmer.

One of a Kind Virtual Facebook Event

The One of a Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo is an in person event held at the Madison, Wisconsin Alliant Energy Center in October. The show has been around for many years and showcases all that the stamping and scrapbooking world has to offer. I have been a vendor for the past few years and have been in and out of the show since it started.

The show organizers also have a store which has been closed due to Staying Safer at Home. So instead of foot traffic, they have created a virtual Facebook event that we can participate from the comfort of our stamp spaces. Grab your coffee, tea and biscuits, it runs from 10am-4:30pmish today!  Click this link to join the group.

I’ll be hosting a One Sheet Wonder Create Along at 3pm in this group. Grab these supplies if you want to join me:

9 card bases, 9 inside whisper white card liners, 9-5×4 inch solid color cardstock that has been embossed, 2-4×4 inch solid color cardstock, 9 punched pieces large enough for you sentiment, 9 pieces of about 3.75 inch ribbon, 1-12×12 inch boldly printed designer series paper, self adhesive embellishments, stamp set with sentiments, ink pad and personal trimmer.

The scrap map will be similar to the Bird Ballad map I used last Sunday during a Facebook Live Create Along on my business page. I’ll post what I create and also the revised scrap map after the session.

Twas the Night Before Stamp Expo…

screen shot 2019-01-20 at 8.31.58 am

Twas the night before stamp expo pack up and all through the house, the supply tubs were stacked high, almost to the ceiling I dare!

The prep tables were a mess of snippets of ribbons, empty spool rolls, scraps of pretty patterned papers left next to Carl Cutter, he is my second boyfriend you know;)

Lots of self adhesive embellishments were cut apart, stuffed into kits, ready for the Card Buffets’ start.

The score board is worn out, markers placed at 4.25 and 5.5 inches. Where is the stylus? Stored right on the board for scores on one last minute design.

Fifteen packages of whisper white envelopes opened and how many whisper white cardstock packages cut down? I have lost count!

A few more hours to prep for scrapbooking class. My favorite themes: snowpeeps, fall and flowers. The time will go quick!

Now off to bed I go, otherwise I’ll risk punching lopsided daises, for the Tin of Cards class.

See you soon at the One of Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo in Madison!
