Our Fun Finds at CHA

Jennie, Diana and I returned late last night from two full days at CHA in Anaheim. Wow, we had so much fun finding product for our upcoming kits. It’s a hard job, but somebody had to do it!

Here’s a look at what we found and what we were up to while we were away.

We loved all of the new Jenni Bowlin goodies. The butterflies and banner alphas were definite favorites.The new Dear, Lizzy line by Elizabeth Kartchner & American Crafts was really playful and fun. We met Liz and talked to her for quite a while. She was very sweet. We’re excited to be bringing you a bunch of her product in an upcoming kit! (Hopefully the April kit.)The two new lines from October Afternoon very fabulous (as usual.) We ordered pieces from both the Fly a Kite line and the Vintage line. Here’s a look at some of the Fly a Kite paper and some sample projects they had up in the booth.We branched out a bit an ordered some really fun fiber products with both burlap and canvas. We can’t wait to play with them and see what you do with them too.The Prima booth was full of yummy goodness.
The Brrok Collection from Crate Paper was antoher one of our favorites. Here’s a layout created with this line.While we were walking around (most likely near the American Crafts booth because they has the best chocolate!) we ran into Stacy Julian, Rhonna Farrer and Janet Hopkins. We talked to them for a while. They were all very nice and full and energy.Another great kit find was the two new lines by Margie Romney-Aslett. We loved both of her lines and you will be seeing some of each of them in our upcoming kits. Thickers? Need I say more? Racks of thickers. Ahhhh.
We put our Cosmo Cricket order in before the show so that we could be sure to bring you the newest product right away. Out Cosmo Cricket goodies have already shipped and they are on their way to us!We are so excited about what we found and put together into kits for you! Can’t wait to share more peeks with you.
