CHA Trade Show Day One

Wow, that's all just WOW. It is so incredible to see all my favorite crafting suppliers and their beautiful products all in one place. And even more incredible is that I was there to give my "expert" opinion for revamping Stamp Fever into a stampers "must go to" destination. But enough of that, you want to see the pictures so without any further wasting of time.....

Look at these beauties...these are the newest wood mount stamps and they are fabulous!!! Can't wait to ink one of these babies up!(Click on the photo to see bigger) My favorites are Floral Scallop (2nd from left second row) In the Garden (3rd from right second row) and Dogwood (3rd from right top row) Which ones do like? Leave a comment with your favorites.



Here's some gorgeous samples using the new stamps!



I finally got a photo of Sally, Aaron held her still so I could snap this sweet shot. Those smiles are quite genuine, these folks are so happy!



Here's Lisa demonstrating with Copic markers. I got some really great tips.



I love these coordinated Hero Hues notecards and flowers.



This is one of the cards from the workshop on Saturday, taught by Jennifer. It uses Perfect Pearls misted on the flower.



I made this pretty necklace at the Hero Arts Make n Take today with Jennifer.

And I'll finish today with some of the NEW Distress Ink colors:

Barn Door, Bundled Sage, Chipped Sapphire, Crushed Olive
Forest Moss, Pumice Stone, Rusty Hinge, Spun Sugar
Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, Vintage Velvet, Wild Honey

I'm exhausted and I have to go back early in the morning, so I'm off to bed....night all!
