Welcome to a quick peek at my favorite products from the CHA-S show last week. Forgive the lousy photos, but shaky RA hands and bad lighting equals blur. Click on the photos if you would like to see the images in more detail. And I apologize now for spending your money for you. :)
First up is My Mind’s Eye. They always hit a home run. Every release. This one is no exception. I will just share this 6x6 pad from The Sweetest Thing line, called, Honey. Something about these colors just gets me every time!
Be still my heart! Basic Grey’s Lucille. Just look at it. Need I say more?
Authentique, Carefree. Loved the red, of course. Great patterns. Subtle, shabby, but I could get away with a boy layout with these!
Loving Persnickety from Lily Bee. Fun patterns. Funky color palette. Looks like lots of creative possibilities!
Colored clothespins from Canvas Corp. Doesn’t that line up just make you smile?
Jillibean Soup, Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup. Fun collection. Its like being in your grandma’s attic. Best part, or worst part is, the backsides are just as great as the fronts! Better pick up two of each!
Banner Bites from Jillibean. Super cute. So trendy. I need to bake cupcakes to use these on!
And these wood buttons from Jillibean too. Great size, beautiful patterns.
Hero Arts knocked it out of the park with their holiday stamps. Bold, big sentiments. And I am saying it now, and have been wanting them for some time, BIG IS BACK for sentiments!
Hero Arts/Basic Grey stamp set from the Lucille line. This will be used often on layouts. Its so precious!!
For those of you on the hunt for florist frogs to photograph your cards, search no more! Melissa Frances has several sizes and two colors. Best part about these, more open space between twines, making it easier to display your project.
Ca-ute plastic flowers from Jenni Bowlin. Love the swirled petals in these Doily Flowers.
Oh swoon to Maya Road!! Why yes, those are spools of burlap trim in colors perfect for the vivid colors displayed in everyone’s lines this show!
All the new buttons from Cosmo Cricket are hands down my favorite product/s from the show. Wood and canvas based, they are bright and vivid and will make a statement. More coming with these later.
GREAT sentiments, in an itty bitty size, for cards, layouts, etc. Love all these stickers from Cosmo Cricket.
Awesomeness from Tsukineko (Imagine Crafts)! These Ink Dauber Delights not only fit on your finger tip, but are full of juicy, inky goodness. This formula also works on fabric!
May Arts! Eeeeee! I am a sucker for burlap and canvas and check out these ribbons! The top ones are stitched with colors down each side and come in two thicknesses. The bottom one, need I say more?!?!
There you have it, a peek at some of my favorite things from CHA-S. Stop back tomorrow for a look at my favorite Spellbinders Paper Arts products, because, well, there are so many new and wonderful products, they need their own post!
thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I did it. All by myself. I went to CHA. I took things slow. Took lots of breaks. Took a few naps. But, I did it. Yes, there was pain. But that is life now. The trip was so good, not only because of friends and some crazy adventures, but because it proved to me that even in pain, I can still do things. I can still go places. The medications are starting to help me feel better. Less tired. More willing to get out and do things. All positive and incredibly encouraging signs, that I needed. Let’s be honest, while I mostly try to keep my chin up, some days it just stinks. I cry. I pout. I stay in bed. But these glimmers bolster my determination to not let this defeat me. I might be slowed down right now, but not out. :)
