April here, just popping in while propping my (swollen) feet up to show you what we've been busy with all week. The summer show in Chicago marked our 2nd trade show, and it's been a success in every way. We've gotten the chance to see friends we've made at previous shows, meet new store owners, play with new product and work our hardest to make sure Studio Calico makes it way to a store near you.
So, here's a little walk-through of our booth.
See the little card and mini album on the table. Tina made the mini and yesterday afternoon, it disappeared from the booth. I was in a-g-o-n-y wondering how to break the news to her, but luckily I didn't have to because the person who took it was kind and brave enough to bring it back today. She had accidentally walked off with it and found it when reorganizing her take-home bag. Aren't scrapbookers the best people?
Nicole Harper's layout got a lot of attention at the show. I think it was because of that adorable photo of Allie, but also because Nicole rocked the Window Seat paper. She loves the B side and uses it every chance she can get, so combining it with the Elementary line was a no-brainer.
The layout by Laura in the middle of this panel is spectacular. Several times we were asked where the patterned paper was that her layout was mounted on. But, it wasn't a patterned paper, she had used the new Natalee Stamp Set to stamp a quote across the entire background. It was GORGEOUS.
The tweets and stars were all the rage on this panel. We also included a make-n-take where store owners got to try out the rub-ons. Nothing but positive reviews for how smooth they went on and how great the adhesive is on them.
Side note: who is the pregnant lady that can't get a straight photo?
My favorite display of the show....Mister Huey has lots of gal pals now, just let me warn you now. He's a ladies' man for sure. Underneath each bottle of the mist, we displayed the sprayed colors so customers could see how well they matched the labels and the product line. That was Nicole's idea. They don't call her "brains" for nothing.
Oh and the white mist....super popular!
Watch out for the wood veneer and notions as well because they're going to be featured lots of places.
One last photo, just to show you the star that was misted with Applejack. So cool!
