Extravaganza Success

We held the Creative Inkers New Catalogue Extravaganza in Auckland yesterday and for the first time it was a sold out event! The venue was central and offered lots of parking, the staff also did the vacuuming afterwards which was a treat. We had more door prizes than ever, lots of yummy afternoon tea and a grand prize draw of a $150 gift box from Chocolate Boutique kindly donated by Barbara Bicknell.
Then there was the projects, a gift box with tags, a faux patina card, notebook, pen and bookmark and the project I worked on, the double slider card. Our technique was Stylus Embossing which is easy and creates a great effect.

The slider element of the card was a bit tricky to teach but the wow's of delight from the customers when they got it to work was well worth it.

All the projects had a technique focus and were well received and I think the guests enjoyed the day as some have booked their place at the next event already! We'll be starting the planning for the Christmas Extravaganza in the next month or so, I will update you once the details are announced.
