Show- Colorado Springs, CO

Hello there!
We just returned from a great show in CO Springs. This was our second time there. Our first being last year. We were so happy that many came back after seeing us last year and were anticipating our participation. It was great!

We started the weekend with a class done by me and my daughter. We had a full class and had loads of fun. We laughed and created and laughed some more. It was great to see the ladies getting excited to create and enjoy stamping.

The class was held at Simple Pleasures. They will be hosting four classes on October 17 and 18th with our own instructor from Las Vegas, Wendy. http://www.simplepleasuresstamps.com/calendar/sp102008.htm

Here we are with Cathy, owner of Simple Pleasures.

There will be a pop-up card class, a cool concepts class and a Blitz 1 and Blitz 2 class. The store was beautiful and big. A great stop for stampers and scrapbookers alike.

The next day was big with all day demos and shopping. It was fun to do what we like best, meet and greet all our beautiful stamping friends. Since I am a new blogger, it was fun connecting with some blogging friends via the internet and meeting them in person. My last entry I mentioned a contest through 2 Sketches 4 You http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/

I saw they were in CO and we connected at the show. Kazan and Laura are the hostesses of the blog. We will be sponsoring prizes Sept 29 and Oct 20, so make your DeNami purchases and enter the contest. I love seeing your creations. We are thinking of cooking up our own contest to see what we can do to inspire you. Let us know you are out there and would be interested. I am still wondering if these blogs just go to cyberspace and I am just talking to myself;)

Kazan and Laura were delighful ladies. How fun to meet creative people and talk about what we enjoy. I loved their enthusiasm. It really was such fun. "Thanks Kazan and Laura for making your way to CO Springs. Hope to see you again!"

Here's Laura, me and Kazan. They were enthusiastic about doing a contest involving the pop-up cards. Stay tuned to see what's in store...

Here are some card ideas from the show:

This is the cover for a pop-up card. Lots of glitter using the Glue Pad.

Here is the Scrapbooking/Crafting gals using the 2 tiered pop-up card.

Here is the same stamp using the 3 columns pop-up card. Amazing how just cutting them apart adds more dimension. It doesn't even look like the same card.

Here's the cover of another pop-up.

I was excited to make this card using the Fireplace pop-up card kit. Just a little imagination and you can take the fireplace card and give it a totally different purpose.

I hope you enjoy these fun inspirations. I would love to see what you come up with.

Everything here is really, really awesome!! I found the dotted circle, but can't find the tree that is by the fireplace or the string of ornaments! Help!!

Also, is there a way to save your shopping cart?
