More News from CHA

January 31, 2011

Hello from CHA!

Well here goes my summary from day 2 and 3.  I thought maybe I would write  straight to Facebook but… let’s face it (sorry no pun intended), that may be pushing my skill set just a bit!

So after 2 full days of walking the show my head is spinning, as always, which turns out to be a good thing.  That means there is still (after how many years?) tons of fabulous things out in the papercrafting market for the consumer! Some of the papers are a bit the same, some lines disappointing, but some of the techniques are very exciting (even for an amateur like me).

WOW the rubber stamps! There really is something for absolutely everyone! Probably the talk of the whole show is the collection stamps from Germany called “La Blanche”.  They’re simply stunning and work perfectly with all the Ranger Distress Inks and embossing powders.  Scattered Straw and Broken China my 2 faves. Is that Tim Holtz? (See below).

Penny Black stamps never seems to disappoint.  They cover all areas from cutesy to elegant and there are new stamps of those wonderful Mademoiselles that were on their Christmas board.  They have also included their own collection of papers to match.  Of Course!!!!!

The Hero Arts stamp company has more new stamps since their January releases and a partnership with Basic Grey. Later this Spring they are releasing a great set of stamps that will compliment the new paper collections.  I am not quite sure about all 4 collections but I did love 2 of them.  I will let you, the customer, be the judge.

Bella Blvd. has an adorable pet collection and the layout they did reminds me of my “Macy”.  Why is it we miss our pets the most when we are away????

“Life Documented” is an interesting collection of papers and stickers from a relatively new company called Memory Works.  If any of you have talked to me about “Project 365”  you will need to check this out.  I totally loved it and it will work perfect for all your memory needs.  My only issue is we are looking at March delivery.  I am not that patient so that will be the challenge.

The wonderful magazine Creating Keepsakes has just celebrated 15 years, hence the silly picture.  Should I use that for my pic for January 29th or… the silly picture with Joe from Thermo web adhesives (RE: Project 365 )?  I had just won a pair of diamond earrings! (Note he is showing them off).  Speaking of adhesive, to those of you that purchased last year’s fab adhesive “sticky thumb”  (in a bright green) it is still available and now refillable and I bought some!  Just what we need…new adhesive:) Honestly, I heard quite a few comments over the past weeks that many people loved it.   They also have a pop dot so we will see how we like that too!

I know once I unpack the bag from the show I will discover more exciting things I purchased.  But you will just have to stay tuned! Also check our Faceboook page for more pictures!

Have a great day, from Barb


What’s NEW?~ CHA Updates (Craft & Hobby Assoc. Show)

January 29, 2011

Barb has gone to the annual Craft and Hobby Association Show in LA, California and will be sending pictures and updates about the great stuff she sees, the neat products she’s ordering and the fun stuff she’s making. So she’ll be trying to juggle being techy and being a stamper/card  maker, scrapbooker, papecrafter! PHEW!!!

After both planes were delayed Barb didn’t arrive at the hotel until after midnight so her   6am wake up call was a rocky start to her creative day.  Barb loved the We R Memory Keepers album, which was the first class of the day. She had fun reacquainting herself with their great tools and using the “Be My Valentine” collection of papers and embellishments. (They are currently in stock at Classic).

The second class from Little Yellow Bicycle was an ATC Shadow Box Project. (See below)

Next Barb tried this fun concept like “speed dating”. There were a collection of Canadian designers, distributors and manufacturers that she took turns meeting.  It was very fun and informative and you won’t believe the project kits she will be returning with!

Her favorite was Stamping Bella.  Emily the creator is truly priceless and her new and past fall designs are wonderful.  (Barb says, “We need to have a sale on the remaining instock designs as there are so many new ones, I don’t think I can buy them all!”) Check out the cute girl in the teacup below, more images on Facebook.

She found some new stamp companies for all you stampers!

Her final class of the evening was the “Boot Camp” from Hero Arts Stamps.

Barb Said ~ “Ladies I do believe I graduated!!!!  In fact Lisa, one of the design gals from Hero took a pic of my card for their twitter or blog. Actually, I was chatting to my neighbor (no surprise) and not quite paying attention and decided to put the ink on my block a little different.  Well it turned out pretty darn good, you would think I knew what I was doing?!  I have to say when someone like myself, who rarely stamps, can make great looking cards, that Hero Arts Stamps must be fabulous products!  I was using Ranger Distress Inks, another great product!  Broken China, Scattered Straw and Antique Linen.” Here’s a picture of the instructor with Barb’s project.

So, that’s what’s happening on her first day at The Show! Hope you will keep checking our Blog and Facebook to see what’s new.

Have a Great Day,
from the Classic girls, Barb, Marnie, Shannon, Spike and Sherry!
