National Scrapbook Day - Details

In case you missed it, yesterday was my repeat National Scrapbook Day event. One lady came and we had a great time. That tends to happen when you have a couple cuppas, beautiful papers, and lots of stamping inspiration! We made 2 pages each in 7 hours and loved it. When you're distracted by another cuppa or a funny story, it makes the day all the more fun. My customer loved the sunburst (I shared the youtube tutorial where I learned the technique), as well as a crash course in scrapbooking and stamping the Close To My Heart way. I enjoyed having someone else to bounce ideas off of and to share what I love doing! I had a yummy dinner planned, which we never got round to as my lady has allergies that I wasn't prepared to cater for. (Oh well, I'll know for next time!)

Wanna see what we got up to? Read on!
The calm before the storm... The pile of papers -plus prizes!- for my customer, the inks, stamps and other tools we used. Esther was rewarded with two prizes. A free workshop pass (for ordering earlier in the week) and a Ruby Exclusive Ink pad (for coming to NSD). I love spoiling my customers!
Trimmer, papers galore, stamp blocks, oh my!
Esther, my lovely NSD test subject. She had a blast! I did too!

We chose colors that matched the Ivy Lane papers. It came out quite pretty, better than I thought it would! I so love this stampset.
Our sunburst page.
We inked the edges of this matting before we stuck it all down.
So many layers. So much fun to put together!
