CHA Summer 2011 Sneak Peaks


More Sneaks...


Storage options are always on the list to see and try. I wanted 1 of everything Creative Options had to offer.




I didn't mention Sticky Thumb in my earlier post, but the adhesive line that I used at the show was absolutely wonderful. The service at their booth was great too.




The following pics are from the Nunn Designs booth. I thought I was in heaven. Most of you that know me, know I LOVE to create jewelry in addition to stamping and scrapbooking. I spent a lot of time at this one for sure. Just beautiful...








The rest of the pics below are all yumminess from the Stampers Anonymous and Darcie's continuous booth. They never disappoint. Just Yum!!!

Cherish Journal


Hi there,

I'm reposting this little journal for tag purposes. It was lost among my 1st CHA Sneak Peek post...:) I immediately began this little journal after returning from CHA. There is something about seeing new product that gets the creative juices flowing.

ATC Fun

Hi there,

Don't you just love ATC's? I do too...:) They can be such precious little pieces of art. I recently had a pink, grey and black Diva swap. My Diva group and I had fun creating for this swap. I decided to create ATC's. See my swap below.





I used my copics with these ATC's. After stamping my image using memento ink, I airbrushed RV04 and C04 onto my card- RV04 was airbrushed with the sketch end and C04 airbrushed with the paintbrush end. Using the paintbrush end added some texture to the ATC. The last touch was to edge the ATC with black ink. Loved it!!!

Hugs,
Karen

Hugs, Karen
