Scrap + Sitges

Last monday night I came back from a trip, eleven days in Spain, three workshops in two different cities plus some ready, steady craft in one of the more popular scrap shows in Spain, Scrap+ in Sitges.

I was invited by Esther Segura-Illa (with me on the left) who is the organiser of this event to participate in the Crea+ section. And that on the right is my creation.

The idea is ten different scrappers are given the same materials (plus they can bring other products if they want to) a frame and a word. Those words are important as they form a quote:

"Creativo no es el que imagina, sino el que hace imaginar." 
Santiago Rodriguez

It is not creative the one who imagines, but the one who makes others imagine.

I was given the word HACE, and luckly I brought some of my favourite Stix2 double sided adhesive sheets and with the help of Raquel Reyes who was demonstrating Sizzix, I could do some gold flakes letters. I also used the "me hace" banner from Marisa Bernal papers for Sra. Granger. The other banner was from Anita y su mundo, a collection of scrapbooking papers from Spain.

After myself, it was time for Alberto Juarez Diaz of Vintage Odissey fame. He is so talented! I was a bit ashamed of my quick and easy style compared to his.

Alberto is not only very talented and good looking, but also really nice and funny, really funny.

I had never been to Sitges before, it turns out that is incredible pretty! By the sea with churches alongside the promenade.

The show is right beside the sea. You see that white tent? that is where the show is held.

Everything inside it is so pretty. All the stands made a huge effort in terms of display and the show itself made all the pretty signage. When we got there it was quiet, but soon started to build up.

As with all the shows, I love that I get to see a lot of friendly faces, including Aurea. I love her stand always, and her shop Cromatismes, was the first scrap shop I visited in Spain. 

With Diana de 100x100 Manualidades where I taught two workshops the day before (more on that later!) and Esther. You know what? the show is free to enter, so perfect opportunity to get newbies in!

And with Manoli Navarro or Picatua as she is better known as.

With Raquel Reyes de Paper Trencats, also you can find her on the Sizzix Eu blog!

And also got a chance to have lunch with some top people. Elena Roche, Quim Diaz (both also members of the Sizzix European design Team) and Alberto Juarez. Love them! Not a dull moment with them!

Did I mentioned how pretty Sitges is?

Old and new, really pretty!

Oh, and there was a vintage cars show/race/exhibition/happening... not sure how to describe it but it seems that for years they do a Barcelona-Sitges event and the owners and passengers of the car are all dressed up.

Really Fabulous, don't you think?
