Yesterday was fabulous! We had a great certification class with almost 50 papercrafters here in Minneapolis, MN and now we're getting ready for Scrapfest at the Mall of America today.We are anticipating making over 1,000 make 'n take card projects this weekend, so if you're in the area you should stop by and say HI to the crew and earn some cool "flair".
We will be in the demo booth immediately in front of Archiver's at the mall. Some of those you might see at our table this weekend include:
And we'll be doing some workshops, crops, and all sorts of fun things this weekend.
Meanwhile, I wanted to share some great links that I think you'll enjoy, particularly those of you who do a lot of work on a light table.
This is the new Trace Pad, by Light Beam Inc. I borrowed a prototype from the office a few weeks ago and I have been in love with it ever since. It is so much easier to correct my illustrations without having to work on the computer with this fabulous light table.
What is so special about this light table? It's super thin, as in, I carried it my suitcase on the way here. It's about an inch or so thick and powered by LED technology so it's cool to the touch and uses less energy than a standard table. Best of all, it produces an even glow across the whole surface. I am absolutely in love with the
one I'm borrowing. You really should check this out if you do any kind of illustration that uses a light table.
OK, I need to go eat breakfast. See you at Scrapfest!
