Annette here, and what a blast CHA was this year, but then again, it’s always fun! This year, I went in a different capacity than I have in previous years; I went as an Education Buyer for CK Events! As a buyer for the events, my job is to buy the materials needed to make classes more innovative, entertaining and fun! And because we don’t manufacture our own products, we get to purchase from tons of incredible manufacturers. And I get the pleasure (and I do mean pleasure) of buying supplies for all of the classes for all 26 CK events this year! CKC’s, CKU’s, the Scrap & Paper Cruise, Quilt Events, and online monthly kits! How would you like a job requiring you to buy scrapbooking supplies? It’s like dropping a kid at the candy store! It’s like giving a chocolate addict the keys to the chocolate factory! Do you get my drift?
At CHA, I ran around the floor like a chocolate addict at Hershey’s! I shopped from booth to booth, from vendor to vendor, looking for the newest & greatest products, designs and techniques, knowing I had a free pass as long as they were incorporated into our classes! So many great new products! So many fantastic famous faces! And me, trying to act calm meeting all these totally cool artists.
With our brand new CKC classes launching, I had to insist (to the powers that be, you know, the ones that pay the bills) that we incorporate this amazing new tool by We R Memory Keepers into our classes. Including, two new Paper Crafts card classes, Stamp it Three Ways, and Come Create with Mini 8 Punches.
I have never seen an envelope maker so simple to use and so versatile! The Envelope Punch Board has measurements printed right on the tool for the perfect size envelope no matter what size card you create. And the embossing tool is stored right on the side of the board so it’s always there when you need it.
Check out one of the fabulous card classes at a Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention near you for a tutorial on this totally cool tool and more!
See you in class!
