I took a trip to CKC St Louis this year and had the best time. For those of you that don’t know CKC stands for Creating Keepsakes Convention. If you ever have a chance to go you should. They are a lot of fun and I got quite a bit of inspiration.
Above you can see some of the things I made.
Queen & Company
I made cards with Queen & Co. including learning how to do a shaker card. I have posting a tutorial on making these cards with Cricut. This was the last class of the day and I was tired, so a few simple cards that I just had to paste together was perfect.
Quick Quotes Scrapbook
With Quick Quotes Scrapbook company we made 2 scrapbook pages, one of which has a really interesting fold down photo album included as part of the page.
There was Stamplistic class where I learned how to place beads. But the best part was they were the inspiration for Coloring with Paper which I perfected for Cricut and wrote tutorials. See a complete list of the Coloring with Paper tutorials here.
And at the Bee Creative class where I learned I don’t like stamping. No offence to people who do that. I admire your patience. But that isn’t me. The teacher’s card was so pretty. My multi-layer stamp was a blurry mess. But she did show us how to make texture media cards. I learned how and wrote a tutorial.
The best class was Keller’s Creations where she blew my mind making 20 scrapbook pages from 6 sheets of double sided paper and a few plain white sheets. And they looked amazing. There was nothing left over. She used ever piece of those 6 pages!
I just went for one day. I couldn’t go to both days but WOW it was amazing. But no one said the word Cricut all day. (it was obvious some of them used the cricut to make there pieces parts though) I plan to adapt some of the things I learned to the cricut and post the tutorials here eventually. Hopefully I shouldn’t step on anyone’s copyright.
If you get a chance to go to CKC St Louis or any other city, I highly recommend it
What Ken and Cordelia Did All Day
And while I was in scrapbook heaven, Cordelia and Ken into St Louis went to the Science museum and the arch. I have a scrapbook page of their exploits
