the day at CHA started out like any others.... full of bright colored marbles, just waiting to be played with!
So... i started out at Canvas Corp. A newer company that focus' on natural papers, canvas and lots of burlap. Here's a Christmas card with paper i ordered... love the ribbon tree
this is one of the long skinny cards coming in... in natural, white and brown bag... so cool, and more of the paper i ordered.
a great banner .... have we talked about banners? They are everywhere! And more of the paper i ordered... i call this group the Julia Roberts collection - the pretty woman years.... love the brown and white polka dots
Punky Sprouts made some really cool mixed media albums with pages to include courragated, acrylic, chipboard, coark, felt... pretty cool
Oh no... another Flat Fanny siteing! Here she is gettin a book signed by Lisa M. Pace, author of Delight in the Details and fan of this blog... hi Lisa!
Ohhhhhh my show pick! The rubber stamp making machine from Teresa Collins.... ok ladies, start rolling those pennies... because you need one of these.... it's $169 and well worth it.
It makes stamps from any image online, drawn and scanned, downloaded fonts, photos... whatever. AND it also makes stencils and embossing templates. Really... it works and the refills are hecka cheap!
Ahhhh... another Flat Fanny encounter with Paula and Kelly, mother and daughter and owners of the newly re-opening GREEN TANGERINES of Roseville!
Claudine Hellmuth... a crowd fav! Now makes foam stamps and clear stamps. The foam goes down first with a sillouette of a shape... like a bare tree... and then the clear stamp goes over it in a darker color... like black and provides the outline. LOVE THEM!!!!
a tim holtz classic... an acrylic shape, with a paper cut out on the back and glued on with diamond glaze becomes an fab ornament, necklace or embellishment...
Ok Claudine... stop being so great... here is the foam stamps in green for the house and in black the clear stamp outline over it... get it? They are super cute!
one more time... black house with faom stamp and outline in white with the clear stamp.... ( also the moon and the tree )
only tim holtz would think of a die to make accordian paper flowers.. oh yes he did. Now he just needs to make them in three or more sizes.
Ok... start rolling more pennies. Here is the TIM HOLTZ electric big shot / sizzix machine. It won't be in until November-ish... so put it on your Christmas list. Keep scrolling down for a pic of the machine
