I was lucky enough to attend Creative Block this month, organised by the well know Australian wholesalers, Printblocks. There was three days of classes, make & takes, demos, and of course.....shopping in their warehouse. Boy did I get some bargains! I won't tell you how much I spent but I saved heaps, with alot of products discounted by 70% & 80%. I bought up big on 7 Gypsies, and Graphic 45, and couldn't pass by the Pink Cricut Expression which is now sitting proudly in my scraproom! I thoroughly enjoyed the classes by Ngaire Bartlam, Shane Hershey (SDU Manager for EK Success), Michelle Van Etten (Provocraft), and Sizzix (who were very generous giving us all the dies, inks, and embossing folders used during the class!).
My favourite display was Graphic 45, here are a few pics of the outstanding design team work, these ladies are amazing.
I was lucky enough to meet Jane Tregenza from South Australia, who's magnificent handmade books are pictured below. Check out her blog at http://janetregenza.blogspot.com/ . Her work is exquisite.
