FISKARS FUN DAY!

CLICK ON THIS VERY SHORT VIDEO FIRST!
video

Saturday, February 21st.

Cave City, KY!
Over 200 participants!
7 Locally owned Scrapbooking stores from Kentucky and Tennessee participating.

What's with all those people wearing orange shirt??? Why, they're all FISKATEERS, of course! Click on the link and you can see what that's all about.

This is what they gave us when we checked in

1st class - Mini Book - GREAT Materials!

This pic show the cover of the mini we did

2nd Class - Card Making with Heidi Grace papers

3rd class - 2 Page Layout - not really my style, but I might insert pics taken during the Fiskars Day. I haven't done such a linear layout in quite a long time.

4th Class - Stamprite - I wasn't too impressed with this one. The purse favor holder was just a fold together. The 2 stamping ones didn't have bright enough paper so they look a bit dull. One of them, the yellowish one had paper that was too small so the whole stamp didn't fit on it well.

And, last but not least. I made a small purchase. Buy 2 get 1 1/2 off! Or, you could have bought 4 and got 1 free. I just did the 3. All Brand new designs

All in all, it was a fun but tiring day. They did include lunch and at the end, they even gave away a ton of tools, but I didn't stay for that. There was also crop time that lasted till 11 PM...didn't stay for that either. It snowed all the way home - about 1 1/2 hours. They said this was the first time they did an event like this and it all came out great!

Makes me really yearn for the next SISiversary in June in Franklin, TN!!

Thanks for stopping by!
