The Make & Take Sessions are always a highlight at the Stampin' Up! Convention and this year was no different. Although the sessions themselves were offered a bit differently this year and I think they are on to something!
Normally, convention goers choose one Make & Take session to attend, and once we are there, work feverishly to try to complete all the Make & Take projects in one sitting. Most of us end up finishing them at home.
This year the Make & Takes were divided up into three separate sessions. It was much easier to complete (or nearly complete) the projects in the time allotted. In addition, there was "open stamp time" on Wednesday afternoon when you could "get a jump start" on the projects. I think this is a splendid idea and hope Stampin' Up! will continue with this in the future.
