CHA Day 2

More looks from CHA:
This is self-adhesive canvas from Ranger Industries. Claudine Helmuth was showing how to use this. She had stamped the stems on the canvas with her new Studio Medium. Then she watered down her Studio paints and made a wash. Beautiful results, huh?!
This is a set of completed canvases.
Isn't this tree cute? Its made of ribbon! This booth was amazing-the ribbon was SO cool!
Provo Craft has a new binding and laminating machine. (MSRP $100) There will be 12x12, 8.5x11, and 4x6 binders in a linen finish. The only colors available now are black or white.
This is was the inside of their binders look like. You can see the adhesive. You tuck the paper inside and then place it in the machine. The machine heats up and the book must be set aside for a few minutes. It also laminates, but not at the same time. There was another machine that did the same thing from another company, but I didn't catch the name. sorry.
New Cuttlebug folders!!!!!!!! :)


New Martha Stewart punches. Look at the slime one! Isn't it cute? Love the picket fence too (could be used for spring too...)
Here the punches are in action.
Ribbon from Beaux Regards. Isn't it gorgeous?
Wooden buttons from Chatterbox.
Sparkle Fibers from Clear Snap. Aren't they yummy?
You can see the bracelet that was their make n take above on the right. These were fun, but messy. I think that to get a good, solid coverage, you would have to apply adhesive twice and a coat of fibers twice, or paint the under surface. Fun and worth finding in the store.

This stopped me in my tracks! 7Gypsies flocked 12x12 papers. GORGEOUS! Thick, beautiful, deep texture!!!

Here is a close-up.
Aren't these cute? What a great touch for a page-they have words and letters. 7Gypsies again.
Stamps that you can sew! As you can see these stamps have a stitching pattern. The samples were very cute and there was a funky cool Christmas tree. Art Impressions.
thanks for stopping by!
