Banners were huge as well. Stickers that are banners, die cuts and papers... everywhere. These two samples above are of Jenni Bowlin's new banners and vintage buttons.
Anything hang-ie down-ie was big. These were tags from glimmer mist / tattered angels.
know about Zentangle yet... you will. It's all the rage. We have a class coming at Ben Franklin taught by Karen called Za-Doodle... it's the same without the zen part!
Crepe Paper is all the rage... this is from Melissa Frances and comes in a pack with soft spring colors... Loved it!!!
This is a card that was made with Tattered Angels new printed crepe paper ribbons and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist and gathered onto a card. Leave it to Heidi Swapp to design printed crepe paper.
This is a cool fabric house book with flowers and lace from Prima.... wait until you see their new apron from Donna Downey. I will be teaching an apron class with it... not pic yet! But did i say everything is fabric, canvas and burlap? Lots of natural stuff
This is my new friend Mid.... from Camden New Jersey... I think he is a blog stalker ( just kidding... got ya mid!)
Here is the Heidi Swapp crepe paper ribbon in the package before it was gathered and sprayed with glimmer mist. Super cool and vintage... oh, yeah... everything is vintage too!
Loved these sewn flowers... sewn, stuffed and put on a stick
Here is the CHA scoop for today. It's been a great show for ideas and samples... but I must say that the new products were a bit all looking the same. The picture above is of a Maya Road house.
These two pictures are of one of my new favorite techniques from Stampendous. Fran is doing some new colors of embossing powders and is doing block painting with them. She is also reintroducing some of my favorite stamps that are landscapes and below is coloring in with scribbled pencil.
Below is the shows some of the new Tim Holtz dies that I ordered for the Big Shot machine from Sizzix and Tim has designed his own machine that is so cute - it looks like a suitcase... not ready to ship until summer, sorry!
