Adventures in Stamping 2015

I had the opportunity to go to the Adventures in Stamping Rubber Stamp and Scrapbooking Convention at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio on Saturday.  My friends Tonya, Charlene and I had a great time.  This was only the second year that Charlene and I had attended.  Tonya is a seasoned pro 😉

We got to learn some new techniques and create our own tags with Pat Huntoon of Technique Junkies.

While at the Technique Junkies booth, Sally Lynn MacDonald showed us how to paint with Peerless Watercolors.

It was such a pleasure meeting these wonderful ladies and we had a great time creating with them!

After the stamp convention, we decided to check out a place called, Palladian Palette.  It is a BYOB painting bar and they recently purchased The Stamp Pad, so they have an array of rubber stamps and supplies.  While we visited, we had a glass of wine and made a few stamped chipboard pieces.

In the same building on the first floor you can find Akron Glass Works.  We were able to watch Chas and Polly Gilmore do their thing.  It was quite amazing!

Then we ended the night with dinner at Rockne’s…and all I have to say is YUMMY!

Can’t wait to see what is in store for next year’s Adventures in Stamping 🙂

Have you been to any great stamp, art or scrapbooking conventions this year?  I would love to hear about them!
