CHA News

Good morning, all!

Greetings from Anaheim California! Kathy & I are attending the Craft & Hobby Association show here. We have seen lots of great new products.

Day 1:

Our first stop was the Spellbinders booth. We ordered lots of the new dies! We also saw the new Impressabilities. (see more info on their blog) These die cut metal sheets make a great embossed image on paper or craft metal. They also can be cut apart to use pieces of them. I'm excited to work with them. We plan to use them at the Spring workshop on April 4th.

We're excited about Flower-Soft, a product from the United Kingdom. This product adds texture and color to anything you can use glue on. It's especially cute for little flowers on cards. Come to the Spring workshop to try it out!

Day 2:

We placed many orders for paper. We found lines we liked at Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Imaginisce. We placed orders at all of them! Fun, fun, fun papers!

We found cute stamps at Hero Arts......yes, we ordered there, too!

Obsession Impressions has some great stamps by a new artist. We ordered them!

We also ordered new stamps from Technique Tuesday, Northwoods, and Crafty Secrets. It will be hard to wait until these shipments come in!

Day 3:

We have an early appointment with American Craft. Who knows what we'll find there to order!

Last night, we made a long list for Penny Black. We'll be placing an order today.

We have a list of several other places to visit including Tattered Angels, Ranger, Crate, Cosmo Cricket, Fiskars, Primo and more......

.......having fun at CHA!
