I went to a scrapbooking weekend retreat early this summer and had the best time!
My friends and I get together quite often throughout the year and have a blast scrapbooking together. We share products, ideas and tips, and many laughs. Everyone works on different projects and some even come to just relax and read.
I brought some ConsumerCrafts products with me for everyone to try out and see what they could come up with!Darice embossing folders were a big hit! Everyone loved the new patterns and incorporated them in their scrapbook pages. They used the folders with Core’dinations new Cut & Emboss Series paper. The paper fits perfectly into the embossing folder and Cuttlebug, no need for cutting. The Core’dinations Sand It Gadget was the perfect tool to bring out the core color in the paper.
I also brought along some Spectrum Noir markers for everyone to use. One friend knew exactly how they worked and couldn’t wait to give them a try! She made me a Pluto to use in my Disney album. The only problem we had was the stamped ink kept bleeding when the markers touched it. We weren’t sure if it was our ink or paper we were using. But Pluto still turned out cute! I loved the quote that is stenciled on the wall, “Scrapbooking is Cheaper Than Therapy.” So true!
We had the best time, ate lots of food, drank some wine, and shared many memories.
