Costco Roadshow and some hotel room crafting

Well I just returned from my very last Costco roadshow...tear, tear...This one was about 3 hours from home so I was staying at a hotel.  I wanted to work on some projects in my hotel room so I wouldn't be too bored.  I took only my paper scraps, some adhesive, and my embellie and ribbon boxes.  I didn't even bring a paper trimmer.  But I picked up an extra we had at the store, and went to work.  I used up my scraps and some digi stamped images that were in my paper stash.  Once I used those up I made some cuts at work.  I ended up getting 30 cards made.  Some of these were made in duplicate so I didn't take pics of every single one.


As you can see in some of the pics, I started to do them all following the same sketch.  I was determined to tame my scrap folder, so i went through and took all the smaller pieces and trimmed them down to fit this sketch.  So now I have a pile of scraps as well as some leftover cuts from work that I plan to use to make more of these super easy cards.  Whatever I don't use, I know the kids will love to play with.

And I also thought I would post a few pics of my display at the cricut booth. 

And a close up of the sign I made to advertise our last day of the show.

This is all made from Storybook, using the markers to draw the Marquee shape.  Apparently the sign helped.  I sold 6 Expressions and 2 Gypsy's in the last day as well as a few of the essentials kits and 3 pick cartridge bundles.  It was the best sales day of all the days I worked!


  1. You were a busy little lady. Great cards and love that you used just scraps. Congrats on selling so many expressions.. I am hoping to go Friday, depends if I can make it home in time. (going to Napa to see my aunt)...

  7. The cards are really great...can't believe you made them all with scraps! I have so many and at times think I just need to toss them, but I really hate to. After seeing what you've done guess I just need to get busy and use them to get my stash down and under control. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me!
