What's New?

CHA Winter 2009

It's the biggest show for the Craft and Hobby industry, and it's on NOW! in Anaheim, California.

This is the first year in five that I haven't gone... so thank goodness for Sneak Peeks and You Tube - it's ALMOST like being there!

Basic Grey is always a favourite for me (and many others), and this year I'm not disappointed. I really liked Bittersweet that released in December and I LOVE Lme Rickey - great for scrappin' boys! They came out with a card kit too using this line, which I think is really smart.

Click on the pic and you'll be taken over to the Basic Grey Website for a closer look.

Next up? The Ranger booth is always busy, and Tim Holtz is of course the main attraction. He is certainly an incredibly talented designer! Hop on over to You Tube to see what new products he's released this year.

I also really like quite a few of the lines from Bo Bunny. The It's my party is particularly attractive for putting together a quick but really nice Birthday Book using the add on embellishments that they do so well. It would would look great on the Bo Bunny Chipboard Word or Acrylic Albums.

Speaking of Acrylic, I'm working on a couple of workshops featuring this trendy product. One class focuses on Acetate, and how to make your own embellishments, frames, etc, and the other is a completely embellished Acrylic Album. Look back in a day or so for some new class listings.

I am almost done a layout, that I am pretty happy with.... I may even post it later today!
