It’s been a busy week for Super Saturday work. I figure my four cards this time will have 1,974 pieces that need to be cut. Some of the paper for those pieces hasn’t shipped from Utah yet, so there’s still a mountain of cutting ahead. Of course, that’s not the only prep. I have a significant amount of retired product that will be on the rubber rummage table, and I need to get that inventoried and packed.
Amazingly, this is the 14th Super Saturday Tina Moore and I have done together. Originally we started with three other demonstrators; we’ve done it by ourselves the last ten times. I found a picture from our first event in 2006 that reminds me why I like working with Tina. Back then, we had a couple of little breaks during the day for tips and teaching. That time Tina and I created a swatchbook of punch samples. We ran through — really quickly — the techniques on each card. One person at each table got to keep the book. It was a blast to plan and create, and we’ve been having fun ever since. Here are some of the swatches:
