I also got some fun hand-outs from other booths as well! On Sunday while I was doing my BG make & Take we heard this train whistle, after a while a rep from Creative Imaginations came over and was handing out wooden Lionel train whistles-and I was lucky enough to get 2 for the boys which they LOVE! ATB was handing out key chains, Little Yellow Bicycle was throwing out prizes and I caught a package of decorative brads, Glitz gave us some rub-ons, Ribbonshouse (made in US only) gave us a pack of ribbon :) , some guy was handing out nail starters (a magnet that holds a nail while you hammer it into the wall)Then the make and takes were fun! First I did this fun little slider window (can't remember if that is the correct name of the product) sign with some of their new paper!
Then I went over to Ranger and saw a demo by Tim Holtz and did one of the make & takes there. It was this cute little flower made using Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas paper & acrylic paints, a MM brad, and my new favorite white pen- Ranger Inkessentials White Opaque pen!!! It writes like Butta!! LOVE IT!! The BEST white pen EVER!!!
Over at My Mind's Eye I made this little flower card using their new "Laundry Line" line. I also used their new stamps, buttons to match the line, and their new inks that coordinate to the different color lines (1 is pinks the other is blue/greens). At first I thought the inks were a great idea, but after using them I think they need to modify them some. The inks are shaped like Cat's Eye and were in a circle that you unsnap and the inks fan out a little bit, then you are suppose to be able to just lift out the color you need use it and set in back in. Well I could not get the ink out of the tray and in the whole process of getting them in/out I got ink ALL over my fingers from that one and the ones next to it! I wish I could find a pic to show, I thought it was a good idea at first, and but in the end I was not liking it at all! Here's the cute little card!
Then I went over to Maya Road and well I am in LOVE with a new product!! Maya Mists!!! Yes Maya Road now has their own version of Glimmer Mist! And I must say my initial thought was copy cats-I DON'T need this! Then I did their make & Take which was covering their chipboard shapes using the Maya Mists. I LOVE the way it sprays- even full coverage! It dried REALLY fast too! It was just amazing to me how well this spray worked! They sell plain colors and then they sell matallic colors if you want to add sparkle to your project! The 2 downsides to Maya Mist- they are water based so they are NOT as versatile as Glimmer Mist (NO acrylic usage), and they currently only have 8 regular colors and 3 metallic colors! The first side is using red and gold, and the second side is using blue and silver! I also did a piece using only the metallic spray.
