CHA Summer Show ~ Part 3

For my last instalment of the CHA Summer show I wanted to show you the Making Memories booth. I was really impressed with many of the manufacturers and how they displayed the products (which is why I didn't really take pictures of the products themselves, sorry!) This was one corner of the booth that shows off items made with the new Valentine's Day/Love line.
Don't you just want to sit at that table and have a cupcake!?
The other side of the booth had this amazing tree and all the leaves are made with paper, it really made a statement when you saw it down the aisle.
Most amazing was the butterflies hanging from the ceiling over the make and take portion of the booth. It was so cool!
So there you have it, my take on CHA, it was a lot of fun to meet people you only know online and see some amazing new products. I can't wait until it all hits the stores!

CHA Summer Show ~ Part 2

The Graphic 45 booth was one of my favorites for all of the detail they had. Even the staff were dressed up in vintage dresses and hats, it really felt like stepping back in time!

Here are some pictures of the amazing Christmas line called Christmas Past, all of the sample projects at this booth were truly amazing.
It reminded me of my Aunt's house at Christmas time, she would love this!

The other side of the booth had the super fun Halloween Alice in Wonderland papers, complete with more amazing sample projects.
I would love to have this clock, I might just have to make one!

Now for something super fun, here is my Mom getting ready to answer some questions about the new eCraft die cutting machine, and guess what, she won one! She was the only one in her group that knew the answers to the questions! I can't wait to play with it.
One more CHA post coming soon to wrap it all up!

CHA Summer Show ~ Part 1

My Mom and I just spent the past two days at the CHA Show in Rosemont checking out all of the new products, making things and meeting people that we love! Above is Elizabeth Kartchner, she was so sweet and her new lines are fabulous!
My Mom got to meet Tim Holtz, he even signed her book and was so nice. We got to watch him work and do some product demos, and let me say that man is a genius! He really thinks of everything. Here are some pictures from one of the booths with his products.
We loved watching him make some tags and show off his new die cuts and stamps, they are going to be a lot of fun to play with.
Walking around the show made me want to come home and start making things again. I will be back with a few more photos from the show soon!
