This is how I roll

My Mom wanted to know how I got my stamp expo display set up to my booth. Here you go Mom!

My Lands’ End rolling suitcases I purchased years ago when I worked as a call agent have served me well over the years. Countless vacations to far away places, trips up and down the interstate and short jaunts to the expo:) I can pack 5 tubs (that equals 5 projects) per suitcase, strap on the Big Shot on top of one suitcase and my catalog bag on the other and away I roll!

The expo center has rolling carts to transport my containers to my car. I went home with a lighter load so that helps with pack up.

Thanks to everyone that stopped at my booth. I’ll be following up with you in the next week. If you have found some goodies in the catalogs you would like to order, you can do so by clicking on Shop Now on the right side of my blog. Please use host code EKNVNV97 if your order is less than $150. If it is over $150, do not use the code so you can redeem all the host rewards!

I have deglitterized the cutting table from preparing the snow peeps make-n-take I featured at my booth. Tomorrow I tackle deglitterizing the main table where I prepared the kits!

Here are the 2 make-n-takes. Can you guess which one was more popular? Leave a comment with your guess. Toodles!

Hello Stampers!

Just a quick note to thank those that stopped at my booth and attended my classes at the #oneofakindstampandscrapexpo in Madison this weekend. We are still at the expo tomorrow, Sunday, October 13th. I have a Card Buffet session at 8:30am that has spots open. You can pay at the box office when you arrive and head right upstairs. I’ll be waiting for you:)

If you are coming to the show tomorrow (Sunday, October 13th), look for me at my booth. I have lots of design inspiration, scrapbook layouts for sale and make-n-takes too.

ICS Blog Hop Gather Together

Thank you for hopping around with us as we share fall themed projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the holiday catalog which goes lives today! You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I settled on inking up my Gather Together stamp set with cajun craze ink for the maple leaf, sentiment and subtle background stamping. The Gathered Leaves dies perfectly cut the maple leaf. It’s popped up on a dimensional with linen thread behind. I quickly created this card at a family retreat for my sister so she could participate in our card swap. She did not have time to make a set of cards prior to the retreat. I still wanted her to go home with a set since she enjoys paper crafting just as much as me:)

The Gather Together stamp set has the roundish circle stamp for a subtle background effect.
