CHA Highlights - Part 1

I'm headed home from not so sunny California. It was so cold here I nearly froze my royal highness off! It's a good thing that most of my time was spent inside the Anaheim convention center walking the rows and rows of vendors and checking out their new product offerings. I warmed up when my credit card caught fire from over-use. Needless to say, my trip was a very successful one, and fun too. Lots of new products will be arriving over the next 3 months. Watch for updates on Facebook, our blog, and the newsletter. I'll write more once I arrive home.

Here are a few highlights to tide you over. Darling new stamps from Penny Black. See photo.

Tim's new paints - 24 colors
Also new images from Stampendous and Impression Obsession.

Tim Holtz and Dyan Reaveley each introduced new products... Tim has fabulous new Distress Paints (shown left) which I had the pleasure of using... and yes, you will want them all. I'll tell you more about them later.

Dyan released six new inks, stencils, and great stamp images.

Pocket watch (new Sizzix die) and alarm clock projects with new
embellishments (from Advantus "Idea-ology")
Left: Joanne Sharpe (coming in March) demonstrates new Silks and
Twinkling H2O's (we ordered these). Viva Decor has new pearl paint pens (displayed
at right), all on order and available at the shoppe the first week of February.

Who could resist Brenda Walton's new dies (for Sizzix)... can you say ALL THINGS QUEEN-ISH ?! a full sized teacup, shoes, and embellished tiara... you know they had my name all over them!
