Brought to you by the letter "C"...

PHEW!!!!!!!!
(A VERY BIG sign of relief! LOL!!)

The letter "C" as in Coffee & Cupcake party for LoveMemo #9 Release Party in Chicago is now over! LoveMemo is short for "Love My Memories" - Japan's first scrapbooking magazine and its editor, Emi Kume, is credited to have started this crafty trend in Japan. As I mentioned previously, I was interviewed for their design team article in this issue! So excited to bring this magazine to the Japanese scrappers' attention in Chicago!










After days of preparation and cleaning, it turned out to be a very nice event :0) Thank you to those who attended, purchased and basically, played with us!









I am very lucky to say that all the magazines sold out before the day of the event...I have a handful that would like to order the issue (oh, Emi! LOL!!) which is a good thing!

The best part? Having new people come and see what scrapbooking is all about and leave home with excitement of finding a new craft! YEAH! What a great feeling!

Everyone had a great time with the party's make'n take...making a mini album out of one 12x12" paper. This technique was featured in issue #9 and for those who had ordered the magazine got a special gift from the editor - a fun patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket, a journal box and cardstock to make the outside cover. How cool is that?! BUT I didn't want them to make a mistake on their first try so I gave out patterned papers in my inventory and let them try it! A lot of ohhs & ahhs...for many, it was their first try at scrapbooking - how cool is that?!

I hope to see the end results from them soon!
