An Exiting Weekend!

Hi Friends

This weekend is perhaps the biggest weekend of the year in the Scrapbooking Industry in Queensland. The Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo, held annually at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, is right this very moment being assembled by hundreds of industry insiders with the latest in scrapping trends, gorgeous products and must have tools.  By the time Saturday arrives we can shop till we drop, and have many options of classes, tutorials and make 'n takes to be taught by talented artists from around Australia and across the world.

Am I thinking of going?  This may spark some debate if my husband hears I've said this, but I'd sooner go to the Scrapbook Expo than watch State of Origin live!  Yep, I'll be there for sure!

My absolute favourite Scrapbooking store, Daisy Chain Scrapbooks, is a longstanding exhibitor at the Expo and I can't wait to see their stand full of scrapping goodies.  Barbi and the girls have put together a beautiful selection of products for sale, and have three amazingly talented ladies teaching classes throughout the weekend.  Be sure to catch classes from Suzanne Tonga (scrapbooking) and Norma Newman and Janelle Evans (cardmaking) if you can.

I am super excited to share that I have designed two separate layouts that are available as kits for purchase from the Daisy Chain stand over the weekend.  The first is a layout using the bold pastels of the My Minds Eye - Collectible - Memorable range, and features some gorgeous bling.  Just a couple of sneak peaks today though.

This kit has a bunch of product in it.  Beautiful chipboard pieces, sparkly American Crafts thickers, lots of patterned papers, doilies, buttons, bakers twine and more.

Each kit contains all product you will need to complete the layout, with full instructions and colour photo to help you along the way.  As a bonus, each kit also has full instructions and a colour photo to make a gorgeous card with leftover product from the layout!

The second layout features the ever so cute Sweet Girl collection by Echo Park Paper Co, and will suit any girly photos.  I just love the lemons and pinks in this collection!

You will get to distress, ink, stitch, fussy cut, layer, pleat, even cut out a beautiful little bow from a template.  So much fun in one layout.

If you would like one of these kits for yourself they are available from the girls at the Daisy Chain Scrapbooks stand.  That's stand number 13, which is in the aisle closest to the classrooms.

So are you going to the Expo?  If you are I hope to see you there.  It's a fantastic opportunity to catch up with artists and designers that you wouldn't normally be able to, and enjoy the fun and friendliness of this fantastic hobby.  Be sure to stop by Stand 13 at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks, and say hi to the Daisy's girls.
