CHA- A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!


This post completes my CHA 2013 Recap...An assortment of really cool projects and some seriously cool papers that I can't wait to get my hands on!  Let it be know that I am totally in love with all the new Dylusions stamps and Inks, Idea-ology, Sizzix Dies, and Ranger products....OH yeah...loving the new Tim Holtz Collection from Stampers Anonymous!  I'm not just saying that either!  LOVE!

So here we go on my third post for the day....LOL!

I have no idea who designed this for Prima...but kudos to you!  This was the one thing I remembered when I was looking back...



PinkPaislee's Hope Chest




Kaisercrafts New Armoire...I think you will see this one a lot from other folks!  Too Cool!




Didn't catch the name of this new collection, but Kaisercraft.

  4. That first scrapbooking page that you said caught your eye but you didn't know who did it(the one with the folded book pages).......it's by "Anna Dabrowska" from Poland. She also goes by "Finnabar". She's an incredible artist and she has her first collection with Prima for this past CHA show. Check out her blog if you get the chance, there is a ton of inspiration there in my humble opinion. (http://tworzysko.blogspot.com) Loved all the pics you took, almost makes me feel like I'm there.

  22. Great job Jim! Thanks for all the great shots and updates! F.Y.I. the altered book (with the bird) is actually by Janine Koczwara (http://www.janinekoczwara.typepad.com/) not Anna (aka Finnabair), they have similar styles, but different of course. I love that you post from all over so we can all live vicariously through you - just as if we too were there! Keep it up!

  25. Great recap! That boys peeing off the pier paper....I just used that same paper (or maybe several lines have that image) this summer to make a beach journal. My niece picked it out and when we got home we realized what those boys were doing! brahahaaaaa

  26. wow - great pics and thanks for sharing a variety! You've shown quite a bit that I had not seen yet. I know what you mean about wanting so much if not all...LOL... I've already placed some orders for the new stuff from several places and I havent even made a dent yet in my list. I think this show was one of the best in several years... I wasnt there, but the new products are just amazing this time.

  30. I love seeing what caught your eye because you're used to quickly picking out the best like you're doing today at Market. Boy, you're getting all the new stuff one after the other. Good thing all these new goodies aren't instantly available.We can all take on a few odd jobs to fund - well - possibly the entire Engraver's collection. Have a great Market.
    Hugs
