Last weekend was Art Specially Event in Nijkerk. THE stamp event in The Netherlands.
This weekend was the official launch of my new stamp designs for Carabelle Studio and I had the honor to show and promote them during two days of make-and-takes in the Scrapbookzolder booth.
Saturday started with coffee and a very sweet and fun surprise. Saskia brought cake with a picture of my stamps on top to celebrate the new releases. How cool is that?!
During the m-a-t you could create a little card using the new stamps and the gelli plate. Over the weekend I taught my little make-and-take workshop too 180 people and on Saturday evening I did 2 longer workshops for 10 people each.
People had to sign up for the make-and-takes and they were fully booked. Great for me, of course, but a bit sad for all the people that didn't get a place. But who didn't have a place could at least watch. It was so nice to see that there was a little crowd around my table all the time. So awesome that there were so many people interested in my stamps and in gelli plate printing!
On the other side in the Scrapbookzolder was Marsha's table. She taught an awesome workshop using ProMarkers and the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer. No wonder that her make and takes were fully booked too! :) Marsha was not only my companion at the show, she was also my lovely host. I spend 2 nights at her house, she made me tea and lunch and took really good care of me. Thank you so much Marsha :)
It was crazy busy, the weekend flew by and at the end my throat hurt from all the talking and I have to admit that I was a bit tired ;) But it was fun, fun, fun!!
Thank you Scrapbookzolder, for everything! And thank too all the sweet, funny, enthusiastic, interested and cheerful people who sat down at my table or came by for a short chat or to say hi, it was wonderful to see you all!
It was a really good weekend and all the wonderful response to my new stamps put a smile on my face that will last for a while.
