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!

Thank You gift…

I’m taking a little break from my CHA pics (and yes, I have a LOT more!) to share a little Thank You gift I worked on this evening.  Both my younger two boys have long term subs at school since both their teachers had babies this fall.  Funny enough, both of them will have their last day with the class tomorrow.  So I wanted to put a little something together to thank them.  And since I had only this evening to do it – this is what I came up with!

I made a little slider thingie (I’m sure there are tutorials out there and even name for one of these, but I don’t know what it is!) that holds a packet of microwave popcorn and a gift card to Blockbuster.  Nothing much, but a little thank you for their time.  I was thinking I might do more of these for Teacher Appreciation or something. Anyway, here it is!


close up of the finished product:


supplies: JustRite Brayton Font; light teal Prism cardstock; 80 lb pure luxury cardstock; SU scallop border punch; Pure Poppy ink and cardstock; scor-tape; dimensionals;  Classic Circle nestabilities; and ribbon – Pure Poppy Grosgrain and striped ribbon off a Christmas tin.

Ok, more pictures later tomorrow!

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!

CHA Day 3 part 2

Ok – here are some more crafty finds from Day 3!  I’ll be posting pics from this thing forever!

A newer company that I found was Canvas Corp – I really liked what they had to offer – lots of possibilities!

Check out this Diamond Hard paint they have – no sanding or priming needed!!



And they had some fab blank canvas things to work with as well as cool hardware!


Doodlebug had one of the CUTEST booths – who doesn’t like glittery cupcakes and flowers?!?!




Absolutely adorable!  Ok, I’m headed out for dinner.  I’ll try to post a few more when I get back – and then I am headed home tomorrow!  It has been so very fun to see all the cool things, meet so many people I”ve *known* online for so long, etc – but I miss all my men at home and I am ready to go back.  Plus my feet are killing me!

CHA Day 3 part 1

Ok, I’ve got a little time before dinner to post a few more photos of goodies!  I hope you are enjoying all of these!

This will be a catch up of a few companies that I had other things to share…..first up – that BasicGrey fabric I told you about!


And seriously, who wouldn’t want a BasicGrey quilt?!?!


And I forgot to show this adorable girly line for Imaginisce – check out the Cinderella coach stamp!


And then from some of SCS’s own….Our Craft Lounge!


And check out Miss Cambria working her tail off on the make-n-takes!  It was so cool to get to meet her – I’ve *known* her online for years!


Alright – I might have time for one more quick post before I head out the door……

For my boys…

Ok – I promised you pictures at the Lego store!   (My boys are saving their money to buy the Lego Death Star  – of course, this thing is like $400 so it might be awhile….)


And with R2D2….and he even made noises!


And this one is for you, babe.  The beignets were delicious!!


Ok, those were just non-stamp related pics for my guys.  More craft related stuff tomorrow!

CHA – Day 2 part 6

Ok – I think this is my LAST post about Day 2….aside from some people photos that I’ll share on another day!  I’ve got quite a few for this one, but I’m just gonna put them all in here!

Starting off we have some really lovely lines from Bo Bunny!



Really great stuff, huh?   And then  there were tons of ribbons from May Arts- some of the older stuff is mixed in, but most of this is new ribbon!


(and yes Tiff – they do make a black with orange pom poms!)




Ahhh – a girl can never have enough ribbon, right?!?

And then Mimi totes came out with some funky zebra print  – how fun is that!?


And we all got evacuated due to a small fire (I think in the food area) – but it was quickly resolved.  I think we were only outside for 5-10 mins.  But guess who we walked by when we were re-entering the building?!

None other than SU’s own Shelli!


Sorry for the bad photo – I was trying not to be obvious about snapping her picture, lol!  Ok, that is it for Day 2!  But I’ve got lots more for later!  My next post is just pictures I promised my boys….
