Hello Friends! It has been a while that I had a chance to say “hello” and share some of my ideas with you. I have been crafting here and there, so my summer has not been ‘craftless’. But things have been so busy with my job that I could not get myself to spend more time on the computer than already necessary. I hope you can forgive me and enjoy some of the upcoming card project ideas I have to share with you.
Today I have two blog posts to share with you. I attended Junkie Fest 2018 and it was the most wonderful experience for me because I finally got to meet some other crafters face to face. I had such a great time talking to like-minded ladies about inks, card stock and stamps! For someone like me, who is fairly new to the card-making world and has no other crafters around where I live, this was the best event to attend. The classes were fun and meeting the teachers was a dream come true. If you are interested in this event, leave me a comment or send me a message and I’m happy to share additional information with you for next year.
Here are a few projects we worked on in class and in the ‘Make & Takes’. I will try to share some additional information underneath each picture and the company website in case you are interested in finding any of these items. Feel free to contact me or leave a comment below if any questions come up or you want additional details on the projects. Please note: These are all project/cards that I made, but none of these were my ideas.Enjoy!

Unity Stamp Company Class
Being the newbie that I am to crafting, I have never heard of Unity Stamp Company. Angie, Whitney and Nick came to Junkie Fest to teach a class and let us play with some of their stamps. I’m a huge fan of their stamps. They have such unique designs and such a great selection of stamps that are perfect for mixed media. Here are some of the projects we made.

Kitchen Sink Stamps
This is another stamp company that I was not familiar with before going to Junkie Fest. I have to say that I was super impressed. Maria and her helper were so generous with their time! They made sure everyone had the chance to do their make and take. They were available every day until the end of the day. Additionally, Maria’s stamps are so realistic! Look at this tree! If you have not seen their stamps, you should take a look at their website.

I was not able to participate in all the Make & Takes, so I’ve written only about those in which i participated.
It means so much that all these wonderful companies came out to meet with us and donated so generously for the Make & Take’s, door prizes and swag bags. This is such a wonderful industry full of so many kind hearted people. Please continue to support these companies if you love to craft. Thank you for spending so much time with me today again. I hope you found some inspiration here.
