We had an awesome time with Beverly Seymour this past weekend at Rocky Mountain Memories! She was so generous with her demo time and we had lots of people come in to watch her create. Her creative use of B Line Stamps with Distress Inks and Stains resulted in some great sample tags you can still see at the shop. I'll be blogging some of the techniques she taught on this blog later this week.
Some of Beverly's biggest fans stopped by the shop to see her and a few came in who had no idea she would be here. It was such fun when they got to meet her in person and see her demonstrations.
Beverly's Ladies Reflections book was a big hit! We all agreed it was quite an ambitious project for Saturday afternoon, but the students did an awesome job of understanding and completing the construction of their books. Everybody's work was substantially finished with additional inking and embellishing to be done on their own.
We're already dreaming about next year and another visit from Beverly. The trunk show gave us a great opportunity to choose from huge variety of stamps and see how Beverly used them. Our Grand Prize basket was won by Ben Englehardt of Estes Park. Congratulations Ben!
An added note, the elk are REALLY putting on a show in Estes Park right now. We took this pic near our house on the way to the shop Saturday morning. We keep seeing him around the neighborhood with all his girlfriends. He's very protective, sort of obsessive, really. We give him and all the bull elk a wide berth this time of year!!
