So, hello there! I'm Laura Hollar and I'm here to give you an update on some recent Sizzix Events. We spent a few days at the fun and fabulous Snap Conference! This was an AWESOME event held from April 23-25, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Little America Hotel. Snap is a conference where DIY bloggers from all sorts of backgrounds all over the world come together to learn, craft, eat, connect and have an awesome time with others from their community.
Each day at the Sizzix booth in the Flagstaff room of the Little America Hotel we would have Eileen Hull, Jo Packham and even Laura Kelly demo their collection of Sizzix dies with the attendees. The projects varied so each day there was a different project from each designer! Attendees were so excited to make fun projects with us. Besides the booth, we also got to touch base with so many attendees during dinner, lunch, breakfast, in the halls, you name it!
On Friday we threw a really rad shindig in the Little America ballroom called the Sizzix Beach Party! We posted some Instagram photos of the event, too. There were goldfish, tropical Jelly Belly jelly beans, sand, an island photo opportunity with sweet props. Also, we rocked out with Rock the Mic Entertainment and spent the evening singing along to karaoke. Tanner Bell & Courtney Chambers joined us as well as Lucy Scholl and they got up on stage and sang like it was nobody's business!
I've created a little slideshow with a few photos for your perusing pleasure. Some of these photos were taken by us and some we swiped from those that hashtagged Sizzix during the event because the grass is always greener on the other side!
We may have come back to our hotel rooms on a couple of occasions to sweet gifts, including one from Joanne Fabric. Each of them left for us by some hotel gift fairy when we were out of our rooms!
The event was really rather awesome. If you love DIY and blog, we highly recommend checking out Snap. There's not only so much to do and see but also get and learn.
