Since someone had cancelled their booth space, I was able to set up two tables at the event: one table for CTMH displays, and one table for make-and take projects. The front table was where most of the action was! I had three make-and-take seats ready for customers, and also some literature on the table about my workshops (local and online), and a draw box for a free draw.
The back table held more literature and various projects on display. Since my table was 2′ smaller than I was told, I also had a little floor display, which is hard to see in the photo below.
However…. as much fun as I had with the ladies at the event, one of the absolute highlights was meeting Tim Holtz!
I usually don’t smile so hard (it shows all of the wrinkles…LOL!), but Tim was just too much fun! His booth was set up across from ours, so we saw his huge crowd all day as he was performing demos. I wanted to participate, but it was work time for me, guiding my own demos!
And speaking of demos, if I had to guess, I would say that we did about 200 make-and-take tags at our table. The tags were super easy to put together since all of the shapes were pre-cut with the CTMH Cricut cartridges! The ladies (and a couple of gents) got to ink/distress, stamp, and glue all of the components. The highlight for the majority of the ladies was using our awesome 2-way glue! Many of them had never used anything like it and LOVED it!
Here are the tags that we made:
Since our CTMH paper is patterned on both sides, customers had a choice of the pink pattern, or the gray pattern from the same piece of paper. There were three sentiments to choose from, as shown above.
The adorable “Lollydoodle” paper that we used is only available for about two more weeks, then it will be retiring with all of the other patterned papers in the current Idea Book/Catalog. If you think it’s cute, you need to get it now, before it’s gone! But, a bunch of new paper packs will be introduced in our new Annual Inspirations Idea Book, available August 1, 2014!
I’ll see you in the craft room,
