Today, Rich and I went to “Adventures in Stamping” in Akron, Ohio. It’s about two hours from us, and I really enjoy going to these stamp shows, as I learn a lot of different techniques and what new products are being launched.
I wanted to video tape several crafters who were demonstrating techniques. I asked Rubbernecker Stamps if they would do a video, and they said yes, so we made a nice video with the owner, David Miller. I spoke to David a year ago and he sent me a box of products. I found some really interesting felt stamp paper that they sell, and bought a pack to try out. During the videotaping, a woman asked me if I have a YouTube channel and said she recognized me, then several other ladies in her group said they’ve watched my channel too. I was so impressed that people recognize me from my YouTube channel, and was blown away by it.
Then I went a booth sponsored by Impression Obsession, and they did a really great demonstration with large background stamps and gave me the image they created in the end. I loved it and they did such a great job explaining their products and tools. Then onto Close to My Heart, where they let me make my own card and video tape it. And it was so much fun.
And lastly, and most importantly, I met Wendy Vecchi…..one of the people that works with Tim Holtz. She’s created her own line of inks, that just rolled out on Monday, and I bought them and thought I’d work with them for a video or two, since they are so new. I could watch Wendy create all day long, as she’s so creative and her projects are just lovely. I think you’ll really enjoy watching how she makes her projects come to life.
It was a fun and exhausting day, but it was all worth it. I have four videos to share with everyone and hope you will enjoy them, and their different takes on techniques…
