Craftin' Mania- Scrapbook Pages

So we made cute cards at convention, but we also made cute scrapbook pages (my fav)!

Just to make you jealous here are the pictures:

This one uses the new stamp set "Here We Go" (it's a travel set but you wouldn't know from the layout right?)

This one uses the new stamp set "Happy Birds" and "Handwritten Print"

Ok, so maybe my photographing skills are the greatest (I swear these 2- 12x12 layouts kill me).  But they are really cute!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Chalkboard paper (bottom layout)

Craftin' Mania- CARDS

I love to papercraft.  I really do.  I don't know why I love it so much but it is tons of fun and I will pay money to do it.  At convention they had a lot of really cute projects for us.  I was. In. Heaven.

Here are the cards we made:

This one is a flip card- I didn't fold it right sorry!  It uses the new stamp set "Happy Birds" and "Have a Happy Day"

This is from the new Cricut cartridge that does cards!  It usesd the "Have a Happy Day" stamp set also.

Another fun Cricut card using the "Happy Birds" stamp set and new gold sequins

Inside is a pop up!  How cute is that?

This was from a new workshop so it made 5 of this type and 5 from the one below using the new paper "Seaside" and the stamp set "Have a Happy Day"

5 cards made with the new "Seaside" paper and the stamp set "Have a Happy Day"

This card uses the new "Scaredy Cat" paper.  To make it you fold a piece of cardstock in half then fold one side over to make it as shown.  Then you glue a frame piece to the front so it looks like the flip cards.

This uses the new Christmas paper (I Love!) "Snowhaven"

This is a bag topper using the new Christmas paper "Yuletide Carol"

A tag using the new paper "Pathfinding"
The first 3 cards we made using instructions and the next 2 were from a new workshop they have for consultants to give their customers.  Then the last 4 were from when some people introduced the new papers and different things you can make from them.  Very creative people!

Convention Surprise!

I was a part of a big surprise at convention this year: a Flash Mob!  It was so much fun to dance and surprise the CEOs and Jeanette with our happy dance!

I also had a great time this same day in the morning running a 5k through the California Adventures park at Disneyland! It feels to good to get up and move!  Unfortunately I got lost while running and I think I really ended up running a 7k lol.  Oh well, it was all in good fun :)

Staying at the Disneyland Hotel wasn't bad either :)
