I spent the last two days at CHA with Sarah. It was exhausting but fun! I wanted to share some pictures of who and what we saw -- and what cool product I think is on its way.
I'm too blurry eyed and tired to fine tune all my photos, but if you make it all the way through them you'll find some blog candy at the end (goodies from CHA) which might interest you.
A spectacular display from Die Cuts with a View!
Me in the middle and Sarah to my right. We were so happy to spend some time Shelly Hickox whose artwork was spread all over the Ranger and Sizzix exhibits.
Of course, Ranger and Sizzix had fabulous displays. Like this Christmas typewriter.
And these vintage luggage shelves.
Here's Shelly showing a very cool Halloween box on a pedestal which opens up with a Boo banner.
More great samples from Ranger.
Tim Holtz product I liked including the new Tinsel Twine.
Saw Tim demonstrate some of his new product. I like the new Seasonal Kraft Resist paper and the Frosted Film.
Kraft paper is below.

For some reason I want these trees in every color!
Of course new stamps from Stampers Anonymous above and below. Surprised at how many I really think I need!
Wendy Vecchi, Tim and Mario giving away sets of Tim's new stamps. I was go glad to get the new mini blueprint -- one of my faves!
More great tags and art by Ranger above and below.
And now for my absolute favorite -- KaiserCraft. I adored their three Christmas lines -- Turtle Dove, Twig & Berry, and Just Belive. All soft, muted vintage Christmas colors.
Adore this Timeless Classics paper line. As well as these fabulous collage stamps below.
It was so cool to meet on of our fellow Design Team Members, KC, who was gutsy enough to participate in the Iron Crafter competition.
Sorry for the bad pictures below, but I also loved October Afternoon's new Christmas line, Make it Merry. So retro!
Gorgeous paper and samples from Prima. Their booth was filled with gorgeous artwork at every turn.
I haven't cared for Basic Grey's paper lines the last few years, but this year they surprised me. Wow!
I really, really like their new vintage lines Lucille, Serenade & Clippings.
Of course, Graphic 45 always wows every one with their spectacular booth.
I'm a big fan of the Ladies Diary line used in this display.
That's it for the mini tour of CHA. If you've made it this far and care to leave a comment, I'll be giving away the blog candy below (extra give-aways from CHA ),
I'll announce the winner on Monday morning!
Thanks for stopping by!
