CHA- Final Pictures!

Ok – here are the rest of the CHA photos.  I’m sorry if I missed your favorite company!  There were a few that didn’t have come this year.

New pretty transparencies from Hambly Screen Prints….


And did you see that one?  Little onesies – adorable!


And check out this new product from the makers of Mod Podge – Extreme Glitter.  It is a liquid glue-like substance, just like mod podge.  You can paint it on with a foam brush – that’s how we did it for  the make and take.  And it STAYS on!  no flaking off – but with a lot of sparkle!  We did 2-3 coats with ours and it was lovely!  Check out the glitter ornaments – how easy will those be with this stuff?!?!


See!  And it’s not eventhat rough!


Believe me – this stuff is sparkly!  It’s hard to show it in a picture, but it really is!


I can’t wait for this stuff!  They said Hobby Lobby and AC Moore had it on order already.   And now some pretty things from KI Memories….


And Little Yellow Bicycle…




And Pebbles……



And last, but not least…..goodies from SEI!



And check out the glitter!


Ok, that’s it!  I really hope that you’ve enjoyed all of these photos!  I really tried to show a bit of everything – I know how much I wanted to see it all when I wasn’t here!  Now I hope someone else will show them all next time when I’m not!  And I promise a card post tomorrow!

CHA Day 4 part 3

Ok – this will be more of the photos I had from CHA.  I had some people pics, but I might spare you those – not very interesting to y’all I’m sure.

Let’s start with Fancy Pants – I love Fancy Pants papers!  They have some fantastic clear stamps too….


And I’ve seen people do the simplest things with old windows – and now they are selling them!


love this line – great for both boy and girl stuff!



And a cute kraft-themed line…


Great stuff, huh?   And also so some adorable things from Jenni Bowlin….like 4×4 (or were they 3×3?) patterned paper packs!


Tiny bingo cards….


and little calendars!


Ok, I think I have one more post of pictures and that will be all!

CHA and a card!

Today I have a set of cards I made for my Dad.  I suppose that might be where I got my love of cards.  When I was growing up, he would always make cards for us.  Usually involving a comic and some construction paper.  I think I still have most of them.  Nowadays, a random envelope will show up in the mail with a comic or an article from a magazine…..and no note!  So I decided that perhaps my Dad needed a set of *manly* cards to mail out so that he has no excuse for no note!  So I made him these!

***YES!  I realize the words *from the desk of* are upside down here – I fixed that part – OOPS!***


supplies: Desk of Border; Times New Roman Font; Amy Butler for K & Co patterned paper; Pure Luxury 120 lb cardstock; dark chocolate cardstock and ink; ocean tides ink; SU olive (or is it kiwi?) patterned paper; kiwi kiss ink; classic circle nestabilities; dimensionals; and sponge. 

And here are some photos of all the JustRite products at CHA – they will be arriving at The Stamp Castle soon!!






Lots of fabulous stuff coming, huh?  I am SO stoked about the lowercase complete font sets!!!  And the mini round mount is just so darned cute!!!

CHA Day 4 part 2

How about the new offerings from Spellbinders?  They have tons of new dies and some new storage!  But first – a people pic!

Natasha Trupp, Wendy Weixler and I – Natasha and I love Wendy because she is so cute and sweet…..and now I own a Wizard – no more broke B plates for me!


And Wendy – I apologize up front for this photo – it’s the only one I have of the storage….


And check out the pretty dies!!!!  Of course, just when I thought I had all I needed…..I am LOVING the flower ones they came out with!  I mean, I don’t know if you knew this…but I really like flower stuff!  😉


And then the Daisy Bucket had all sorts of pretty things!  I love this black and white line!


and more pretty papers!


And cute projects!  And stamps!



Cute stuff, huh?  I love that Merry Wishes – I don’t know if it’s new or not…but I haven’t seen it!  Ok….just a few more posts and you’ll have seen it all!

CHA Day 4 part 1

Alright – here comes the rest of the photos!

Starting with a few cute lines from 3 bugs in a rug….



And some cuteness from Chatterbox!


And then some more pretty things from Dream Street Papers!



And then….I have this wonderful photo of well…..bras.  They are decorated with various paper goodies….and they have numbers?  I cannot for the life of me remember what booth these were at – but they are hilarious!  So enjoy!


CHA Day 3 part 7

Ok, I’m back with goodies from Crate Paper, K & Co, etc.  And not much chatter now – I’m just focused on getting all these pictures out there!  If you haven’t seen your favorite company yet, don’t despair!  I have quite a few more photos to work through!

So here’s some new offerings from Crate Paper….


Love this line for little boy things!


And some new offerings from K & Co…..



And check out the giant roll of ribbon on the Offray booth!


Ok, that’s it for now.  I’ll be back later with some more photos!

CHA Day 3 part 6

So I know you all want to see what Prima had to share….and I have a bunch of pictures from their booth!  I am determined to finish these CHA photos this weekend, so here goes!


This looks like clear stamps and ink perhaps?


This cutesy line by Nancy Kubo for Prima….


And of course  new flower concoctions!


And die cut felt ribbon…..


So that’s what Prima had to show!  More next from Crate Paper, K & Co and more!

CHA Day 3 part 5

Alright, here’s another round of photos!  And a funny thing – so Anna Wight is amazing.  She draws, stamps, crafts, takes amazing pictures, etc.  She was at CHA and I never saw her there – but when I walked up to the gate for my flight home….guess who was sitting there!  Yep, and we ended up sitting across the aisle from each other – of course we slept most of the flight and all…but it was great to see her again! And if you’re not familiar – check out her work {HERE} – it’s amazing!  Anyway, it was fun to chat with her at the airport!

And here’s some more fabulous goodies!  Starting with Cosmo Cricket’s  newest offerings!


And modeling this new line is none other than Natasha Trupp – a fellow Dirty Dozen Alumni!





And some new things from Penny Black!




Ok – lots of eye candy for you!  Enjoy!

CHA Day 3 part 4

I’m home!  I would have gotten on to post more pics earlier – but when I got home our internet was down!  Suck!  It’s finally up and working again so I’ll slip some pics up here quickly – just in case it goes out again!

Ooops!  I hit publish too early on that one!  Here are the pics!

I stopped by the Me & Carrie Lou booth and saw Jerri Jemenez  – we were on the Dirty Dozen at the same time and I wanted to meet her!


Jerri is amazing with watercoloring!  Just look at the GORGEOUS samples this woman made!



Beautiful, isn’t it?  And that gold with a hint of sparkle as the embossing – STUNNING!  I couldn’t really get a photo that did it justice, but it’s beautiful!

Ok, I have to edit some more photos before I can post any more!

CHA Day 3 part 3

Alright, I have time for one more quick post before I head out to the airport!  Can you believe that the boys have no school today?  I believe we got a smattering of something that might be ice?  I have no idea – Texas is so funny about winter weather!  Anyway, here’s a bit more of what I saw!

This is for you, Tiff!  A new line by Anna Griffin…


Bazzill has added a swiss dot paper…


And some other embossed papers…


Check out this gorgeous glittery-ness from Making Memories!


And some fab transparencies too!


Ok, I’ve gotta go meet the airport shuttle – more later!
