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….

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….

fancy-pants-1.jpg

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

fancy-pants-2.jpg

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!

jenni-bowlin-3.jpg

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!***

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 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!  😉

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!

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!

cosmo-cricket-1.jpg

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

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!

me-carrie-lou-2.jpg

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…
