Howdy folks! I had a ball at the Heirloom Productions show in West Springfield yesterday and today I am going back for more. They are open from 11-4 at the Eastern States Expo if you want to come down and see what all the fuss is about yourself (although it might be hard to see it all in 5 hours-I did not get to everyone yesterday so I am glad to have another chance today!) The best part about going to a stamp show is seeing the new products available from stamp companies and meeting the fabulous demonstrators, in most cases the owners and designers themselves! Check out this fun demo from Judikins:
Here is one of my favorite stamp companies, Lost Coast Designs, and their rubber offerings, I went to their booth first for best selection!
Local King Rubber Stamps was new to me last year so I made sure they were one of my first stops yesterday (I have to hit my favorites before I run out of cash LOL!)
I have used the rip ‘n flip envelope templates from Green Sneakers for years (making envelopes is a great way to use up those leftover papers from a stack) here Nick demonstrates his interactive card templates and then I bought some!
I also wanted to be sure to film the demonstrator, Melinda, at the Impression Obsession booth, she is so funny and sweet and the way she uses the backgrounds is fabulous.
Stampland has some creative stamps too, their website is under construction right now but you should be able to order from them soon or find them at a stamp show.
So how did I do bringing the stamp show to you? I will post more from the show tomorrow including my personal haul (keep in mind I have been saving since last year!) but for now I need to get ready to go back! Thanks for stopping by and til next time Happy Crafting!
