CHA was Exciting!

Before you start reading this post you may want to grab yourself something to drink and a snack. You may be reading a while, because I have so much to share about CHA.

We saw so much fun new stuff. It was hard to decide what to order. I love going to shows, because I get to see all the new products and I come back feeling inspired. So some products to look for in the next few months would be the new Cosmo Cricket ( . I ordered all four new lines, because it was to tough to decide between the four of them. I also order their blackboard. For you quilters Cosmo's Jitterbug patterns are being released this spring in fabric, which I am excited for.

Making Memories had the cutiest baby line for scrapbooking. It seemed like everyone came out with baby and since I am expecting I think I went a little over board. They also came out with the Slice a die cutting machine that is very user friendly. The Slice will not be shipping until July.

We have a lot of Hannah Montana and High School Musical items coming. From stickers, to iron-ons, to craft kits. I think they will all be a big hit. We also have all the New Cricut Cartridges on order. Can you say clear stamps? So many companies are coming out with clear stamps that are so stinkin' cute that I found it hard to resist. For you Disney lovers there will be some new Disney products coming to the store to freshen that section up.

We will be getting in the Pebbles Inc. Share & Tell line. This was one of Scott's favorites. I really like how basic it is but can be more advanced if you desire.

Amate jewelry products were another one of Scott's favorites and mine too. They are blank jewelry pieces used to create your own pendants, rings, and bracelets. The pictures shown are using some stamping products such as UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder), paper, and Glossy Accents. I just love how unique each piece looks.

I saw some awesome quilts that were embellished with some Petaloo felt petals. They looked amazing with the dimension of the petals. I hope to get in these patterns for the quilts.

Radiant Rain is a product put out by the makers of Twinkling H2O's. It will be on our shelf within the next month. It is a product that's simply easy to use. The finished product looks so beautiful. The one of the pictures below are ceramic beads coverd with Radiant Rain, they are on wooden sticks to dry. The picture of the trivet was one of my favorite samples.

My Mind's Eye has always been one of my favorite companies. It may have something to do with the men that work in the booth. They are always energetic, nice and good looking helps too. They came out with these three lines that we will be picking up. The Wild Asparagus line is the 4th in its series. This time it has a shimmer or a pearlized look to it. It is just beautiful. The 29th Street Market is a good one too, but my favorite is the Just Dreamy line.

Moxxie is another scrapbooking company that we picked up. Here is a peek at some of their lines. Easter Doodle should be here in time for you to scrapbook your 2008 Easter memories.

All that is left to say is Tim Holtz and Grungeboard. He was so inspiring and made crafting with grungeboard look so easy. He has come out with more grungeboard that we ordered up along with some exsiting Ranger products. The eye popping color swatch samples of the crackle paints was enough to inspire me and made me think outside of the box.

This post was a little longer than I thought it would be, but I had more to share than I had realized. There was more that I saw at the show but these are the ones that stuck out or that I can remember of the top of my head. We will keep you posted when we receive these new products and others. Thanks for sticking it through to the end, It was worth it, wasn't it?
