I arrived at Scrapfest in Kitchener, Ontario at 4:30 pm to register and get this party started! After meeting up with Roberta, first up was receiving our VIP swag bags filled with paper crafting goodies.
Some of the swag we received; I also won a new pair of Westcott Titanium scissors!
We still had an hour and half before our first workshop began, so the next thing we did was to hit the marketplace. I had a very specific list of things that I needed to find: Suzi Blu stamps, Claudine Hellmuth stamps, and some more bottles of Beacon’s Three in One glue. I was thrilled to find all 3 at The Art House Studio. It didn’t surprise me, though – Karen always has the most amazing things at her booth!

As we wandered through a few other booths, I found some other goodies as well. Those of you who have seen my live webcasts may know how much I love the line from We R Memory Keepers that includes the Sew Easy and the Sew Ribbon. Well, at the Younique booth, I found the Sew Stamper, a self-inking stamp roller. I’m so excited to try it out. I added a few packs of Glubers (like extra large Glue Dots), some clear squares for making charms, and some Maya Road dress form shaped paper clips.
I also found this goodie pack filled with all kinds of mixed media embellishments at Younique– it was a bargain at only $10!
Stay tuned for future blog posts to see these amazing items in action – I’m pretty sure some of them will also be making an appearance in my giveaway packs on my show, Creative Cynchronicity Live, Wednesday nights at 9 pm Eastern.
