Scrapfest 12'

A couple of weeks back, my girlfriends and I went to the Mall of America in Minnesota for Archivers annual Scrapfest.  We look forward to this time every year to learn new techniques and see new products, but most of all - scrap and have a great girls weekend!!!

One of the classes we took was called "Cute Cards in a Snap" offered thru Archivers themselves. Below is a copy of the flyer that was handed out in our class.
Each of the classes we took last approx. 45 to 50 min, but of course you can never get all of your projects completed.  The idea is to give to the basics of a new idea or technique, or get a chance to learn how to use a new product. We usually end up going back to our hotel room that night and finish up the rest of our stuff.

This is my take on the project.  Of course they tell us we don't have to follow the directions word per word - we can always take our "own spin" on it if we would like.  Here are mine:

I switched the direction of the 'banners' on a couple of them, as well as the size of the banner too. Recently at work, I was asked to make a card for a fellow co-worker that had cancer, went into remission and recently, had found out that the cancer had come back. 

I really liked the design and layout of the card we had created in class,
so I created a "Thinking of You" card.
As always - my girlfriends and I had an AWESOME time and I love all the new ideas and techniques I came back with. Hope you enjoyed them too : )

See you again real soon!!
