CHA Product Review

We are finally back from CHA, unpacked, and over the flu!  What a trip!  We've got lots of new stuff that will be arriving over the next few months.  I thought I'd post a CHA Review for those of you who don't follow our Facebook page.

Here were some of our Favorite Finds:

I'm loving the new products we found in the Ranger booth.  On their way now are the NEW Dylusions Ink Sprays from Dyan Reaveley and Distress Paints from Tim Holtz.  These are NOT just another paint.  Wait until you seem them.  We'll be demonstrating them as soon as they arrive (hopefully this week).  Already arrived and not so new (but NEW to us) are ALL of the Archival Inks from Ranger.  Best of all, Ranger's products are MADE IN THE USA!  We love that!  Thanks Ranger!

The Idea-ol-ogy booth was full of great new products and lots of fun ideas.  These empty and alterable clocks were one of my favorites.  These products should be shipping in March.

Of course, Mary loved Graphic 45.  Especially the French Country Collection.  These two collections are due to arrive mid February.

Yippee!!  No more trying to draw those cute figures for your mixed media projects.  Prima has introduced these wonderful "fashion stamps" from Julie Nutting.  She's known for her "Fashionable Collage Art".  These should be arriving in March.

More "SNAP" products from Simple Stories.  I loved the samples they had in their booth.  Their albums were beautiful, yet simple and QUICK!!  I think of them as a mini version of Project Life.  They'd be great for a trip or a single event.  The books and some of the products are in stock now.  New products are shipping in March.

Sizzix has some great NEW dies shipping in June.  In my opinion, spring would have been a much better time to ship these.  However, won't they be great for the Holidays.  That basket and canning jar will be great for packaging up your Holiday treats!

Finally, we are so excited to introduce Project Life.  Becky Higgins is releasing her Project Life kits to retail stores and we "jumped" at the chance to order these.  These are shipping in May and will sell out quickly!!!  We'll let you know as soon as they arrive.  In the meantime, if you are not familiar with Project Life, take a minute to watch these quick videos from Becky Higgins: Project Life Video and Project Life Products
