so, this year was the first where I didn’t have much role in CHA… I wasn’t doing any ordering for the store, and I didn’t need to keep up on what everyone was releasing… it was definitely weird!
I do still follow some people and companies on fb and twitter, so I thought I would share with you some of the fun things I saw that are coming out, that get my creative juices flowing! (Hoping Ink About It has ordered some of these goodies!)
My Minds Eye: On the Bright Side – I love all the wood textures and the teal and orange combos!!
Basic Grey: PB&J – I am absolutely LOVING this color scheme… and the hint of nautical theme there is
Hero Arts & Studio Calico: Abroad stamps – looks like I better plan some more travels for 2012 because i NEED a reason to get these stamps!
Creative Imaginations – of course I got a good look at all the lines they were releasing before the show, lucky me… i do have a few faves!
Oceanside – Christine Adolph always creates the most beautiful lines!!
Nautical Collection – The name says it all… Samantha Walker created this wicked fun line!
Tea Party – Samantha Walker also designed this line. I just love the color scheme and the patterns
Tim Holtz: Ideology “chit chat stamps” – I love, love love these!! Those of you who take my class know I am always making up my own “word fetti” and I love that tim explains in the catalog that we can create our own “banter with them” when I teased him about it on fb he gave it right back to me haha (TIP: also i heard him explain in an interview that these are white and kraft AND matte finish so they will take to inks really well… any color you want!!)
Those are just a few of the new goodies I am loving. I also saw a lot of wash tape and trims that make me drool… now to just get my studio organized so i can get some new goods in my stash!
I did get to design some fun projects for Creative Imaginations… they have been doing a lot of fun sneak peeks over on their blog… but I thought now that CHA is over I would share my designs here.
I have a few more projects as well, but they haven’t been showcased on the Creative Imaginations blog.. so you will have to just wait to see!
Love the scrapbook layouts-especially the one with your dad-gorgeous and so colorful. Love it.
thank you connie! the colors of the pic worked perfectly for this line… and then again my dad and i are “birds of a feather” 🙂
It has been rather weird reading various reviews of CHA on line and not hearing about it from you as an ” eye witness” so to speak or as a LSS manager so I was fun reading this. Here’s hoping that Ink About it has made some orders 🙂
re: ink about it- I’m sure they have .. i was following them on their blog and fb… can’t wait to see the new goodies in person!
Love your projects especially the last layout-great colors. I too must have those Studio Calico stamps…and the Basic Grey Plumeria is on my list with about a million other things!
thank you cheiron! the colors of that photo of jimbo and i couldn’t have been more perfect! heading into my crafty space to CLEAN OUT now.. hoping to make room for new 😉
