There were 27 booths and we hit each one of them at least once. Many booths had different projects each day. The Carta Bella and Echo Park booth did two projects a day! Here is a sample of most of the make and takes I made.
We also attended two crops at the Archiver's store in Apple Valley MN. The Friday night crop was sponsored by Maya Road and we made a darling card and got a goodie package of chipboard, a canvas mini album and a Vintage Embellishment Super Pack. Maya Road has several grand prizes also but we didn't win. On Saturday night the sponsor was Graphic 45. We made a vintage card with real metal hinges and received a goodie pack that included Hampton Art stamps and a 12x12 pad of Graphic 45 Cirque paper. I won one of the grand prizes that included an alphabet stamp set, Graphic 45 hardware, Little Darling Stamp sets and a Nutcracker 8x8 pad. Plus the Archiver's store provided a goodie bag each night also. I barely had enough suitcase room to cart all the goodies from Scrapfest home!
Last and best of all was the one hour and a half class with the Rock Star of crafting TIM HOLTZ! (scream!) He is one of the best instructors on video and even better in person. The project taught us a lot of techniques. After the class he was available for picture taking and autographing. I had him autograph the top of my instruction sheet. Here it is framed on my wall in my craft room next to my completed project.
We enjoyed talking to women from all over the country while we were standing in line for the make and takes. And of course the shopping, there were some amazing stores. I hope you might consider attending a Scrapfest. You will not be disappointed.
