I wasn't able to get to the computer yesterday, but I wanted to pop on today for a it and share a few photos of things that I saw yesterday and today at CHA. It's fun to spend a few days with people who totally "get it" about one's crafting passion! It's been great to meet new friend and renew old acquaintances as well, but I'm sharing only product pictures; I know you'll see photos of people all over Facebook.
That's Sharon Harnist's lovely hand modeling this fab charm bracelet made with vintage-style findings from a company called, aptly, Vintaj. I adore vintage, and I just know that several l of these will find their way to my studio. I'm really curious about whether I can use them in soldered pieces--I guess I'll find out!
I loved these little alterable drawers from Karen Foster. I think they were about 3-1/2" square--I'm approximating. These look perfect to alter for a craft room!
These lovely paper flowers were at the Graphic45 booth; they had a fabulous new line that I didn't have a good picture of, Romantique, that had pinks in it. It's another that will come to my house to play. . .
I adore this darling little watering tin made with Cosmo Cricket's new Garden Variety papers. Natasja Verbeek, whom I was finally able to meet, made this. She's amazing, and so is this paper!
CoreDinations has partnered with Cosmo Cricket to create some fabulously textured color-core paper. Sanding it lets the core color show through. I'm really happy about this because sometimes I need to use a LOT of distress ink on my pinks and aquas to make them coordinate with my CC papers. These colors will be perfect.
I always love Melissa Frances papers and accents! She has a new Attic Treasures II line that I can't wait to get, and she just came out with a 6" x 6" pad in one of her lines, and I begged her for MORE!
This little pad is a cute one by October Afternoon, due out at the beginning of March. I especially love that little cream and pink-flowered paper second up from the bottom.
This Green at Heart line by Basic Grey had some sweet, home-y patterns and colors. I didn't have a picture of it, but Webster's pages had some great new releases in a good size for card makers. Clear and Simple stamps had a fun papercrafting i-phone app--how clever is that?
Okay--need to run. If you're here at CHA, come see me at the Copic booth. I'm coloring every morning--best gig evah! Thanks for visiting.
