On Stage Make & Takes

I must say I had a fantastic time in Orlando.  Some things didn't turn out as expected, but overall it was a ton of fun and it was good to meet new friends and run into old ones. 
Today I'm sharing the make & takes that we did during two sessions.  All of the projects used products that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue that goes live in January.

For the first project above, we used pieces from the Needlepoint Nook Suite.  If you look closely at the Designer Series paper, you can see that it is made up of actual embroidered images.  I also like the on piece from the Framelit set that created the holes in the paper.
This little pizza box (3"x3") is covered with DSP from the Classic Garage Suite, and gears cut using the Garage Gears Thinlits.  I think my favorite feature of this card is the black and silver Striped Ribbon.
This card is oversized to accommodate the cards from our Memories and More Packs.  Envelopes are included in this pack of cards, which come in two sizes, so there's no worries about finding an envelope to fit.  I do like the vibrant colours in this card.
Finally a card which features products from the All My Love Suite.  Our stamp pad was a bit too juicy, but the flower stamp for this set creates variegated look in one stamping.

Now, you have to imagine about 6000 people needing to stamp these cards.  We're divided into 5 halls (or 6) making about 1000 people in each room......all needing to use the Big Shot to cut out pieces.  What do you do?  Line up a whole whack of Big Shots in two stations and hope for the best.
There are about 25 Big Shots per station, 2 stations per hall, 5-6 halls of stampers.  That's a lot of generous stampers lending their Big Shot for the event.

It was a great event with great memories.
Thanks for stopping by today,
