Craft Super Show
Today was so great ya'll! The shopping was fun, the crafting was fun, and the people were a blast!!! The show is the same yet very different than the Scrapook Convention that I've become accustomed to in Texas. You can just feel it in the air, everyone is happy and excited to be there. There's companies that showed up there that I have never seen at a Texas show! See those white bags with red trim everyone is holding onto in line? Michaels was giving those out and they're filled with fliers and coupons. The Michaels logo is actually printed on one side of them, none of them are turned that way so you can see it though! I met Taylor from Taylored expressions -- no picture yet (sweet as pie!) and the owners and some of the DT from Ippity stamps. Heather Rolin I'm such a huge fan of these guys! I found my favorite Texas duo Joan (Stamping with a Passion) and Bev (Texas Grammy) scoping out the isles! Over at the Splitcoast booth, SCS's royalty were hanging out! That was one crowded space!! Davon, Jenn and Beate were there -- and I know you know who I'm talking about!! Splitcoast had a different make and take sponsored by different companies every two hours!! I was there for the Lizzie Anne one. And, SCS gave a specially designed SCS Home stamp out to all the visitors!! Jenn has a little badge that she's wearing to show it off -- click on the pic to get a closer look. Some more fun things there...Cricut had a fabulous presentation...they were doing demos on all their products -- the Cuttlebug, Expression, Gypsy and the big featured item is the new "Cricut Cake"! Wild, huh?? They redesigned the Expression to make one that is "food safe" so you can roll gum paste through it and cut any design, from any existing Cricut cartridge in any size or detail so you can decorate cakes!! So their make and take was cupcakes! You got to create a flower to decorate a cupcake with...And you can just imagine the line to do THAT make and take!! (Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow!!) BTW, in the photos, those things on everyone's head are bakers hats that they were giving out to the make and takers!! Here's some new cut and embossing folders coming out for the Cuttlebug: There's a LOT more to show and tell but I'm beat for the night! Tomorrow is a whole 'nother day of shopping and makes so I need my rest (LOL!). I'll post again in the evening! I'm so glad you stopped by!
