I am back from the Crop & Create event, put on by Scrapbook & Cards Today:)
It was a blast…my friends are hilarious and we seem to be the loudest (and I am sure most annoying) table to the others attending the event but whatever…we have a great time, lol.
Here is my friend Debbie and I eating our snack.
Notice the difference in snacks, teehee.
Not sure what is up with my eye there, lol.
You know I always like to make little treat bags for my friends.
I think they turned out cute!
I have used these treat bags many times, and had to come up with a new way to decorate them :)
So I decided to use a mask and spritz them.
I was going to use water colour markers to spritz them with, but the tool wasn't working nicely…and I was in a rush, as it was a couple of hours until the event, lol.
I covered the bottom and the handles of the bags as I didn't want them done.
See how nice and crisp the spritzing turned out.
There is always so much ink left over on the stencils, that I hate to waste it.
So instead of cleaning it off with a paper towel, I just flip[ed the stencil over and pressed it on the bags for reverse inking.
Pretty cool eh…not as crisp but cool.
Here are the finished treat bags…aren't those butterfly sticks so fun.
I figured that they could be taken off of the sticks and used on a card or scrapbook layout.
I am heading to the States with my friend/SIL Sharon for our yearly girls getaway :)
I am sooo excited.
I packed a few (ya, right…a lot) of scrapbooking project to work on in the hotel room while she is gambling.
Wish her luck ;)
Sharon and I usually go on 2 trips a year …one with my daughters and one with just her and I.
The exchange rate is crazy, as it cost me about $1.34 CND, to purchase $1.00 US
So this year my daughters opted not to go, as well as that is a they would have to take 4 days off of work.
They will come with Wayne and I when we do our family trip/getaway in Nov or Dec.
I hope you all had a very Creative Day :)
I did as I have been at the Crop & Create event for the last 3 wonderful days.
More on that in the next few days :)
