Homemade flowers were everywhere. The cleverest idea came from Cosmo Cricket, which sells a super sized glue dot called Glubers, with which these lovely big blossoms were made.
A couple zipper ribbons were out there, and these from My Mind's Eye were used to make these flowers.
What can I say about these dresses. They were at the DCWV booth. Just wow. I didn't even photograph all of them. The woman at the booth said the artists started making them in October. Here's another:
There were also lots of candy and cupcakes made with paper and ribbon. Here's some cupcakes from Nikki Sivils:
And these come from the Ribbon Ring:
Those treats in this photo were all made from ribbon scraps. Mmmmm...
I have to admit, I do not play around much with paint and canvas, but these canvases inspire me to do so, the first from Maya Road:
And the second from The Girls' Paperie:
I also loved this birthday calendar project at Jillibean Soup, made by Aly Dosdall:
I also truly admired the designs of several layouts. Here's a sampling:
That's a stamp around each small piece of patterned paper. What a great way to use scraps. This was at Lily Bee.
I love the use of non-themed paper for a holiday page, using Thrift Store from October Afternoon.
This page at the Doodlebug booth caught my eye. What a great use of bright papers on the white background.
These two pages from Bella Blvd use their monochromatic line. So innovative!
Tomorrow I travel, so I'll share more about the experience Wednesday, as well as favorites at Ella blog in the coming weeks.
