Continuing yesterday's post...I left off right at the Prima booth! Get ready for some eye candy! I know that I said this yesterday, and I'll say it again, there's nothing like seeing these products and projects in person. They're so much more in person. Here's hoping you can sort of tell how magnificent it all was!
Flowers are up first. Can every single one be my new favorite?
They're collaged. Can you see the paper and paint all mixed together in the hair and clothing and background? I really love how they turned out! I'll try to grab a photo of them in situ, before the show ends! And next week, I'll share some images of all the pages I made for the booth and the catalog!
After Prima, we had about an hour left. We decided to try to hit Pink Paislee...
...but it was slammed with people. So, we rushed down the aisle, passing the very empty Queen & Co. booth along the way...
...and finally landed at Beacon Adhesives. I'm a huge fan of Beacon's Fabri-Tac. I use it all the time. I even have a small bottle of it in my box of art that I brought with me. I highly recommend it for attaching ribbon and felt and all those fabric-ish things. But, I saw this...
They had another cool product (pictured below, right) called Fashion Flip, which allows you to temporarily adhere an applique or patch to your clothing. And then easily remove and reposition it over and over again!
We bought our cases of adhesive and headed back towards Pink Paislee.
But, we could not resist stopping at Hambly!
Not only are Hambly's products gorgeous, but their design team is just the best. Seriously gorgeous creations. Anyway, we breezed through with promises to come back tomorrow and do the ordering.
Pink Paislee was calling our names. Let's talk about alphas first. Now, I am not usually a glitter girl, but I love that these are variably sized!
If you can believe it (we did *a lot* in that last hour of the show), we had ten minutes left and ran to the Advantus booth. They were having a deal where you got free shipping if you ordered the first day, so we wanted to get that order in! Advantus covers several brands like Heidi Swapp, Tim Holtz's Idea-ology line, and Cropper Hopper among others. We shopped from the Idea-ology line.
I apologize for these photos ahead of time, but this was one of the absolute darkest booths around! It was dark, dark, dark. And they turned the lights out at 5pm when the show "closed" for the day. So, the last few photos were really taken in the dark.
Grungepaper flowers (amazing!):
And that was it! We walked out of the convention hall and across the street to our hotel. We did go to a party for Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine at the hotel. But, otherwise, it was a night spent in the room. We ate pizza and soda. I blogged. Kim tried to make a witch's hat, like the one from the Pink Paislee booth. We finally rolled into bed around 2am.
Let me know what you think of everything you're seeing!
I'll post about today's adventure ASAP. I have to edit the photos! See you soon!
