CHA Photos

As promised, here are the some of the many, many, many photos that I took with my iPhone at the Craft and Hobby Association show last month.  I hope that it gives you a glance of what I saw and enjoyed at the show.
One of my favorite trends is the chalkboard look for paper crafting.  Lots of stamps and papers to give that desired look.

 Another popular item at the show was the loom band jewelry.  Initially designed for kids, adults can now enjoy this craft and make awesome creations from the same supplies.

I can't remember whose sample board this was, but I liked the food related stamps with the slightly distressed look.

 I was impressed by the Darcie display of cards with the new button sweet!

As usual, La-La Land stamps were well represented by beautiful displays which included their new undecorated boxes and stands.

For me, it is always a pleasure to peruse the Graphic 45 booth because of the elegant displays using their gorgeous vintage-look papers and embellishments.

Here's a look at Graphic 45's Art Deco snazzy!

I believe these cards are from the Tim Holtz display. His booth is always buzzing with unique products and clever designs.

This last photo is of a House Mouse card which I was so happy to see because it's been a long time since I last saw these stamps and I thought that they would never be on the market again.  The artist is still designing stamps and added bears and rabbits to the line.....cute yeah?  I still have tons of photos which I may or may not get around to posting.  Well, maybe later okay?
