Today I'm writing you on Sunday....all because of a 5th Polish Scrapbooking Convention in Warsaw, which took place yesterday, on 30th June 2012. This biggest Polish scrapbooking event gathered about 30 online craft and scrapbooking shops and hundreds of visitors who could take part in classes taught by mixmedia artists, journalers and cardmakers, make and takes, mini-courses, contests, drawings and big lottery. Sizzix UK was an important part of the event too, sponsoring prizes for lottery, make-and-take and mixedmedia-scrapbooking class which was taught by me in the morning! Thank you so much !
I've made a short photo-relation for you to show what was happening on friday and on the day of the event... it is just a quick peek on the event, but I hope you will enjoy it anyway!
Friday, packing and kitting time. All my living room is covered by beautiful Prima flowers and embellishments, some nice findings, cardboard and papers which soon will be turned into kits for my class "Tea for 2" - mixedmedia layout. My brave Big shot works hard all evening!
And here are the kits, packed and ready to go! Aren't they pretty?
The class started at 9.00 am - I was very lucky to have a wonderful group of talented students from all Poland. We were making layouts based on Prima papers and embellishments together with Prima Stamps and LaBlanche Stamps and some spraying with Ranger products.
Sizzix Big Shot machine was a great help again - we were cutting out extra elements for our layouts !
And here is the photo of the group, made just after the class - happy faces and the most beautiful layouts!
The event was really full of people - they were shopping, taking part in contests, and winning on te lottery to! Sizzix sponsored the main prize for the lottery - Sizzix Big Shot starter kit. The same kit was given as a prize in random drawing among customers of the biggest Sizzix retailer - Scrapki.pl shop.
... and then we had great time cutting, gluing, inking and embellishing! We had great time together and a lot of fun!
Here are some of the beautiful envelopes that was made during the Make-and-take:
Again - I'd like to give huge thanks from the organization staff to Sizzix.uk for sponsoring and all the great support we received! Thank you for being with us!
Tired but happy - sending warmest hugs from sunny Warsaw!
