ScrapMart: CKC & Hi!

I attended the Creating Keepsakes Convention (CKC) - Chicago last weekend. The day I went it was rainy so it was a perfect day to do something scrappy! Met friends and talked so much (really? lol!) that I didn't take too many pictures.

CKC Registration Area

Button Farm! LOVE their kits :)

ScrapMart and my favorite product - Spellbinders Paper Arts!!

Today I am using FarmHouse Paper Company's Market Square Collection to create this card with a little texture - cork, metal and twine :)

Hi! by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Patterned Papers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Market Square Collection); Cork Paper: Canvas Corp; Ink: Ranger (Walnut Stain Distress Ink); Ink Mist: Tattered Angels; Marker: KURETAKE ZIG (Gold/Silver Painty Twin); Twine: May Arts; Leaf Pin: Maya Road; Dies: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S5-132 A-2 Matting Basics B, S4-364 Spiral Blossom FourS4-368 Hexagons and S5-052 Creative Page Tabs); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever); Other: Kraft Cardstock, Brads, Photo Turns, Staple

I used one of the die templates from S5-132 A-2 Matting Basics B and made this cut to get a perfect tail for my banner with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine!



Had such a fun time visiting with friends and coming home to create with new goodies ;0P
