CHA 2016: Roundup of more favorites!

I was demoing, in meetings, or otherwise off the show floor all but about 30 minutes a day. No, really! So all the photos I’ve brought you? I got them in a total of about 90 minutes!! Not too shabby – but I definitely didn’t see or capture it all. So this final CHA post is a round-up of more favorites!

#1: Avery Elle especially the unicorn stamp! It’s so sweet – watch for a video next week!

#2: PinkFresh had some great stickers as well as stamps and fun stuff – here’s a fave phrase stickerroundup7

#3: I’m not sure that I need this stamp, but the Richard Garay “lumberjack” stamps and beard obsessed line was fun!


#4: My Minds Eye brought the A-game! All three lines were must haves.


#5: Brett Weldele for Stamper’s Anonymous – superheroes AND there is a dragon stamp set as well! Intensely awesome!

#6: Webster’s pages had great traveler notebook, planner, and paper goods. Love them!


#7: Pebbles – love this Everyday line!


#8: Heidi Swapp – the reactive paint and mist for Minc is a game changer for sure. She also had great planner, memory keeping, and light boxes as well as marquee items.

#9: This Julie Nutting for Photo Play Paper line is awesome!

#10: Brenda Walton for Sizzix! LOVE her display and was so upset to find my photos didn’t turn out! This one did though – and her dies as well as display are as fun as this one image!


I know I’m missing photos of some, and perhaps didn’t see other favorite things so I’ll be discovering more through coverage elsewhere on the internet – but I’d also love to hear what YOUR favorite new things are! Do share…

CHA 2016: Dyan and Dina for Ranger

Both ladies have fantastic new products coming from Ranger – inks to mica sprays to stamps. Can’t wait!



You coloring book enthusiasts will love Dyan’s coloring book pages – they’re loose so you could insert into an art journal or give them away or anything else you like. And? They’re only one sided so no worries about things leaking. Also rocking things with new paints and more was Dina!

This photo of her demo table is my favorite – and look! She’s got mini birds now. Her birds are my fave – so I am excited for these.


CHA 2016: Paige Evans for Pink Paislee

It was so lovely to finally meet Paige in person – and she’s as lovely and sweet as I’d assumed. That’s definitely a favorite of mine – when people are just as wonderful as you think they’ll be! Even better? Like me, she’s got her first line out at this show! Paige is creating with Pink Paislee and her line is full of fun details and elements that remind me of her.


Just a note here that Pink Paislee also has another line (C’est la vie) that is also lovey.

I’m feeling like these loom kits and fibers could be an awful lot of fun too! Something new – always love that.


CHA 2016: Tim Holtz

I had just a few minutes here and there to see booths and snap photos – so I missed a lot! But I did catch the ideaology booth and ranger booth when quiet and caught some pics that I can share!

The ideaology booth, as always, was immaculately styled! If you want to see an upclose at the new products/catalog you can check out this post on Tim’s blog.

On Tim’s blog you’ll find peeks at his awesome new stamps and dies as well. Across the isle I got the chance to watch Tim demo the new distress crayons as well as everything from the new designer palettes to sprays to collage mediums – all things I’ll be making videos of and sharing with you!
