Got back from Artisan yesterday tired but happy!
Met up with people from Craft Stamper - poor Katy had to put up with me all weekend! Actually we had a great time - I hope I didn't drive her too mad. She was a great help in my Make 'n' Take and we both managed to get a little shopping in - just a little you understand! Some of those must have items!
I really enjoyed the Make 'n' Takes - everyone was really lovely (I didn't have to tell them to behave!!!) and produced some great ATCs. If I'd been organised I'd have taken my camera with me to take a picture.
I met quite a few people whose names I recognised from online, either from blogs or Graphicus Guild. It's always nice to put a face to a name - hi ladies!
This is what we made from the Elusive Images Curly Birds plate:
And here are some variations I put together with different backgrounds, embellishments etc.,all using the same plate:
There were some of my favourite places there: PaperArtsy, The Artistic Stamper, The Altered Element, Artist Trading Post plus some new ones I found that I'll have to add to my list! Add in all the glittering beads and I was well away.
We did several ATC swaps so I came away with some lovely artwork as well.
I also met some of the mag contributors - Lousette, Rachel, Kate B. and Anneliese.
You can tell I'm on a high!
I'm going to go and look at all my goodies now - just had to get the new clock stamps from Leandra and I got some great background stamps at The Artistic Stamper - thanks Jennie!
