This weekend, I had a fabulous time at On Stage Atlanta and World Card Making Day 2016 #WCMD2016! In many ways, so much was happening all weekend I felt like I had been gone for a week instead of a couple of days!
The best part of the weekend was the first “FLO-MO” reunion. We had not met up since the Stampin’ Up 30th Anniversary convention a few years ago. So getting my Florida and Missouri friends back together was a real treat! Another great part of the weekend was #WCMD2016! We had a full day of stamping, learning and having fun. Pam Morris and Brian King put on a fabulous event. And On Stage was a fabulous showing of the upcoming 2017 Occasions catalog and the new products in it. We also got to celebrate the top Demonstrators in the country and well… the world! It could not have been a better weekend.
Saturday night after all the whirlwind of activity, we had dinner together and a card swap of our own. The theme was fancy fold cards and mine was a simple, “double z” design. I wanted to use some copper and Christmas Pines seemed like the perfect way to add a touch of copper. For a fancy fold, I think you beed some kind of a “wow” focal point and the “Merry” cutout in copper foil seemed to do just that. I love the bold look and the copper works well with the retro look of the DSP. And of course, I love. love. love the Pretty Pines thinlits.
The fancy folds card and swap was a lot of fun. I will be sharing a few more from that swap with you later this week!
