Stampcation Inspiration

Hi stampin’ friends!

It’s been a busy month after Stampcation, which was AMAZING!  The presentations were awesome with demonstrators up on a stage showing their WOWS and I loved the sound of 100 stampers cheering throughout the weekend! 

Our theme was Releasing Your Inner Artist so the displays were themed around art and color vignettes throughout the room.   I’ll share a few photos with you… 

Shantaie Fowler is my friend and Stampcation partner. She is really the creative force behind the amazing, over the top  displays.  We have learned that we excel creatively when bouncing ideas off of each other so  it’s a perfect match.  Here she is hanging the paper lemons on the tree for the yellow display area.

Of course we couldn’t pull it off without help!  Matt, Toni, Penny, Dave,  Megan, and Nate were on the scene to haul in displays  (from our rented trucks LOL) and help pull it all together.

My amazing, glass half full guy, Matt!  At the control panels controlling audio, microphones, projectors, visual slides, video….quite the job well done!

Shantaie’s creation using the SU fabric, Beau Chateau on her apron for the pink vignette area.   Isn’t she fabulous?!  Shantaie is quite the seamstress as well as papercrafter.

We had this great area for a photo opportunity with stamped mustaches and a big frame!  It seemed to be a big hit and saw people there all weekend!

The 8 presenters were amazing! Nance Lempinen-Leedy did a great demo on the insides of cards.  I loved this card she did for fall…

Lots of swapping!  4 Line swaps for card fronts, 1 3D line swap and then a big shoe box swap!  Here are a few of those:

She used the stocking hanger loop in the stamp set to make hoof prints!!  We were all roaring at her creativity!

This one is stamped by  Connie Hobbs – I loved it and using the Marina Mist patterned paper with the Frostwood Lodge paper looked so fresh and bright!

The scrapbookers were out in force, too!  I took this pic because of the table….where did they find room to scrap?  LOL

Really a great time!

By the way, the month is ticking away for the FREE BIG SHOT promotion!  If you want to sign up as a business or hobby demonstrator, get in touch with me before the end of October!!
