CKC Scrapbook Convention

This past weekend Jennie and I went to the CKC Scrapbook Convention in Tulsa, OK. We had a blast. It was just the break that we both needed. Here's a picture of us in one of our classes at the convention.Below are pictures of the project that we did in our first class. The title of it was "Just 2 Easy Acrylic Albums." One of the most helpful tips that we learned in this class was to start from the back when you are designing your acrylic album that way you can see what it will look like as you are flipping through it. Also, you should lay everything out before you adhere it.This was our second class titled "One Stamp, 10 Techniques"...Jennie and I never quite figured out what all 10 of the techniques were. This class was jammed packed. We didn't actually finish everything in class...I don't think I finished anything in class, but we finished it later. I think these layouts turned out pretty cute. Now I just need to find the right pictures.And this was our final class that we took, "5 Cards in 5 Steps." This class was very enjoyable. We finished all 5 cards before the end of class and learned some basic designs that can be used over and over again and can be used with different sentiments. The card on the left in the first picture was actually apart of the class above
And what did we do after the convention you may ask...scrapbooked of course. We had to finish the scrapbook pages that we didn't finish in class, and we worked on a page kit that we purchased from Technique Tuesday. Here's a picture of Jennie working on hers and the final product.

I really wish I would have taken a picture of the vendor fair. There were people EVERYWHERE. It was impossble to walk arround without bumping into someone or being bumped into.

Stay tuned....more posts coming soon!

PS - Can't believe that I beat my sister blogging about this! Kudos to me :) Do they still make kudos granola snacks?

Looks like you two had a really great time and learned lots of new skills. It's always fun to go and learn creative tips from others. Can't wait to see more of your work.
