Well, I survived day one of CHA! Let me tell you, my dogs are barkin, but the pain is well worth it. I achieved my goal of meeting Tim Holtz the first fifteen minutes we were there! He's a cutie pie. I spotted some trends amongst the manufacturers: Nature themes, lots of birds, bright happy colors, lots of flowers(LOVE IT), brown and blue together, lots of vintage inspired products(really love that), and tons of bling, OMG, I've died and gone to heaven! Best make and take: Melissa Frances, Best booth, of course Tattered Angels. Second runner up in the best booth department was Graphic 45, Third was Prima. Prima has TONS of really cool new products, and some great class programs I think you all will love. I also noticed lots of canvas products, from wall canvases, to tote bags(perfect to glimmer mist). I found myself looking at all the papers from the different manufacturers and thinking,"that will go perfectly with glimmer mist color... It's so much fun to go to CHA and see people you haven't seen for a year, since last CHA. I should have titled this post "Girls Gone Wild at CHA", cause Lisa and I went wild with all of the fantastic new things coming your way soon! Quickutz has an awesome new portable Silhouette, the list of great things are endless. Really tired now, so I'll post more Tuesday night. Don't forget, if your going to be at CHA, come by the Tattered Angels booth Tuesday, I'd love to see you! Thats all for now folks.
I live in California with my husband, and three daughters. I am an avid scrapbooker, and a Tattered Angels endorsed educator. I am also an educator for Elizabeth Craft Designs (yummy glitter). I teach scrapbooking classes at scrapbook and stamping stores in Southern California. I love using found objects in my scrapbooking, and ribbon, flowers, buttons, bling and of course Glimmer Mist and glitter make regular appearances on my scrapbook pages. My favorite subjects to photograph are my girls. I do something "scrappy" everyday.
