thank you scrapfest 2013…


what a great time scrapfest 2013 was.  my sincere thanks to all of my students for making me proud and being amazing with each and every one of you finishing the project and being so much fun.  thanks also to mario, patti, colleen, michelle, terry and the great archivers team in the rotunda for working so hard to make sure everything went perfect.  it was a tough schedule to set up for nearly 60 students in each class with only 15 minutes in between to clean up and set up for the next group, but we did it for all 4 classes – whew!!!

i have to say teaching in the mall of america certainly can be intimidating, even after teaching there for 10 years now.  i mean check out this perspective of teaching to a group of 60 students in the middle of a 4 story mall – crazy right?  luckily i have every single step projected on the huge jumbo-tron so the students can see it all and enjoy creating.  i also demoed each day in front of the archiver’s store to share the latest sizzix, idea-ology, and ranger products (thanks to all of you who showed up to learn all you could).  then in less than 72 hours we were back on a plane and heading home.  thanks for another great year at scrapfest everyone…t!m

    Scrapfest looks absolutely amazing!
    I’ve been lucky enough to do a class with you Tim in Melbourne which was on a much smaller scale of course, but you and your team are so organized that I’m not surprised everything went well!

    It’s hard to imagine Tim Holtz being intimidated with teaching, but we all have our inner demons. 😉
    This looks like WAY too much fun. Looks like everyone had a great time.

    Hi Tim, this looked like so much fun! I just thought that I would drop by and thank you for your inspiration. I just posted my latest embroidery project, and one of your stamps was my subject. Have you ever had anyone embroider one o your stamps before? Just thought you might be interested 🙂
    Thank you for your wonderful line of products. They are my favorite 🙂
    Keep smiling, Connie 🙂

    The photos did catch the strategic placement of the class setting… Conveniently directly in front of the Starbucks logo. That’s some careful planning. Nice job. 🙂

    Thanks Tim for coming to Scrapfest. Your class was a blast. I learned so much there and also watching your demos (I’m even in the demo pix you posted!). Thanks for sharing your time & talent with all of us. And thanks to your team for doing such a wonderful job with the class kits and set up. I know that’s a huge job, but everyone made it go smoothly. Look forward to seeing you next year….

  14. It was another FUN time with you and Mario! great teacher, great project! Can’t wait to play some more with all the leftover stuff! You are always so generous with your kits!
