Oh what fun I had at the Scrapbook Expo in North Georgia last weekend!!
I’m loving that scrapbook vendors are learning that scrapbookers do more than just scrap, we craft, too!
So if you think this post will be entirely scrapbook related because the event was called the Scrapbook Expo, you are mistaken. And, I hope, pleasantly surprised!
So get your pinning fingers ready because I’m pretty sure there will be more than one project you want to add to your Pinterest boards!
This love banner caught my eye right off the bat (and the cards hanging above it are pretty cute, too!). If you have been following my blog for any amount of time at all, you know I am a banner kind of gal. The dimension in this one is phenomenal! Not to mention all of the bling…
I’m pretty sure I don’t even have to explain this one.
This chipboard mini album is too.cute.for.words.
And let me draw your attention to the collar area. Stunning!
I love all things acrylic though I’m often befuddled as to what to do with it. This layout is beautiful for the Christmas holidays. And that flower is too fun!
Need I say more? Love this! But not the price.
Surely I can make this myself. (The fabric tape, too!)
And those lace flowers are super fun!
This fun and adorable boy banner is so bright and perfect for any little guy. I love that it incorporates so many “boy” things into it, too, like the rocket, car, and stars.
Note to self: Add fabric to the front of buttons for a more customized look!
So I’m a shorty mcshort short and this project was up high, thus the weird angle. But I stretched to the top of my toes to get this shot for you and me!
Its a scrapbook layout.
Mounted on canvas.
With more scrapbook paper behind the canvas to really add to the 3-D effect!
And that flower is pretty darn amazing, too. I’m pretty sure its a bunch of folded circles.
Totally trying that…
I adore the vintage look of this printer’s tray. I have one of these in my stash… somewhere… Now I have a better idea of what to do with it!
And I may or may not have purchased that chipboard dress form.
And sewing machine.
What can I say? It was a bundle deal!!
There is always one booth that really captivates my girlfriends and I, and I don’t think any of us have ever not
bought something from it. They have an online store
as well if you’re interested. (Not that I’m being an enabler! Ha!)
They put together fun altered project kits and provide a lot of inspirational crafts.
I may or may not have bought all of the items necessary to make the above project…
Am I starting to say “may or may not” too much now?
I thought these display items were just too fun! The top photo has a curled fork attached to the top of the box that acts as the handle. In the bottom photo, an old drawer has been turned into a shadowbox.
This photo is here to remind me to go look up this paper company. I had never heard of them before (and I’m the first to admit I am a scrapbook paper hound!), and they had 3 different collections showing at the Expo! But the price was just too rich for me. The lowest I saw these kits were $20.99 each. But they are too stinking fun not to share. I’m determined to find them at a lower price somewhere on the world wide web.
Anyhoo, the company is called Simple Stories and below are the 3 collections that were at the Expo as well as a 4th that I hadn’t seen.
These photos should come with a warning:
Super cute, vintagey fun that you are going to want!
Elementary Collection Kit | #1201

Complete and utter fabulousness!
Someday these will all be mine!

And, finally, our new tradition when we go to the Expo… Dinner afterwards at the Cheesecake Factory! We were so stuffed from dinner we had to get our cheesecake to go.
Thanks Amy, LeAnne, and Vanessa for a wonderful time with my favorite girls!
We missed you, Lori. Its never the same without you! 🙂
So what caught your eye of all these projects?
Did anything inspire you?
The CKC Convention
