I may be going Sat. now! My mom is going to get my father to watch ds so we can go together so we have more time. After work on Friday will leave me only 2 hours and I want to make sure I buy everything on my list!
Angela - I LOVE THE CHIZZEL IT!! The battery casing spring was messed up, but I fixed it and it works now. I totally returned some stuff to Michael's - a scrapboss! LOL! I had never heard of one before - but that is a cool little tool! I have been embossing, chalking, distressing acrylics and more! Stuff I have never done before
I regged for CKU!! I cannot wait. I got a class by Becky Higgins!!!!!!! I am serious when I say that when I registered - it was withing the first minute of them opening registration (I kept hitting refresh till the Register Now button appeared ) and within 10 minutes about half of the classes were totally full! I got some good ones, but not all that I wanted - I am hoping some people are gonna be changing their mind on the digi photo class. Is anyone else gonna go?
Shame on you LOL! It really is cool! I love what it does with chalk. You are supposed to use one of the little hard cones on chalk - but it just tears my brush up. The little brush that is supposed to be for ink is equally good with chalk. I have used it for everything! For the money, it is a great tool! Heck - it's a great tool anyway!
Angela - I got my titles yesterday - so cute! Thanks
Hahahaha! Angela - that's too funny Although I think I do remember you telling me you'd never seen them. They are clear transparent and has 3 things on it - One is a title and says Family - One is the definition of family and the other is a quote - Friendships may come and go... but the love of Family lasts forever. It is in red and green - I will use it for a Christmas layout.
I'm going on sat. My best friend is coming over Friday night and we'll go in the morning. I'm not sure how long we'll stay. I think it all depends on how crowded it is and what's there.
I won't get my tax return before the Tampa Expo. The IRS site says I should have it no later than May 24th. It's alright. I can save it for the Orlando Expo. I am also planning on going to that one. My best friend lives close to that and we decided to go to both. lol.
Last year the Sizzlits deal was buy a Sizzlits and get the carrying case for free. The Sizzix dies were buy three and get one free or it may have been buy four and get one free. I can't remember.
I look for things that I may not be able to find locally or something that may not be out in stores yet like some of the newer Sizzix stuff. It takes M's about 6 months from release to get them in stores. If you are looking for a Xyron I'd just use one of the M's coupons for 40% or 50% off. At last year's Expo I picked up some 12x12 military paper and some preprinted vellum sheets. I think there were 50 sheets of themes etc for like 8 bucks. I still have some of them left. I have checked out some of the vendor's websites and have already written down some things I'd like to get if they have it at the Expo.
I was looking for the SEI papers, new Chatterbox and some others that my LSS doesn't carry. But, the redone Crafts and Stuff section is awesome! I spent $40 there today just on Chatterbox, SEI, and some Basic Grey. I figure I can now spend the $13 i was going to spend to park and get in on actual supplies! I also used my 40% coupon there! I can't wait to go back when I have some more time! There was too much to look at!
So I decided to go today and then spend the weekend with my mom!!
I got there around noon and it was totally packed.. I just pretty much walked around first off and then dove right in.
got some real good deals---15 sheets of Bazzil for 6 bucks. and I finally got the Basic Gret Motifica (sp?) set for 15.
Not much in the way of eyelets that I could see which is what I was looking for orginally... I'm not really into page kits, but they had some awesome ones.. lot of animal ones. Stampin Station had some awesome hurricane paper as well... (guess where my hurricane swap items are coming from)
