CHA, Winter 2008.
That was my third time at the CHA…
It's really a magical world populated by people who are passionate, attentive and extremely talented! Thanks to all those whom I have met and with whom I have spoken!
Now my impressions…
The big trend this year is the scalloped and punctured paper. And I swear to you there were over there the wonders that I have ordered…
The other major trend is still continuing, the doodling. But now it becomes even more complicated and it is everywhere: paper, ribbons, stamps, markers, ribbons felts (incredibly beautiful!), Etc ... "Ranger" (Inessential) has released a new white pen to do doodling and I must admit that it works extremely well on the paint, ink on the carton and on Grungeboards (I tried).
Another major trend is the Glitter. Everything shines. There are many embellishments of this kind.
And another trend that can be seen also is transparent (albums and also embellishments).
Now about my kits…
All my kits until September were ordered!
I have changed my formula of the kits to integrate a new major trend in the world of scrapbooking and take advantage of the phenomenal amount of embellishments that will be available on the market.
And I, as you all (I suppose), I want to try them all. And as you know already using kits provide this opportunity because, instead of buying a large quantity of the same embellishment (which uses barely ¼) or avoid buying them because they are too expensive, you have in the kit just enough embellishments to try and move on to something else…
So you are going to have more papers and embellishments in the coming kits. You will be able to buy add-ons where you will find albums and other embellishments.
You will see what AMAZING kits I have prepared for you … I am myself impatient for looking forward and creating with… I had tried and I think I had succeeded to put more double-sided paper to give you more opportunities as well as several products out of the ordinary and I had put also really new products in the world of scrapbooking this year. As you know my kits are recognized, among other things, to contain beautiful ribbons and this time again you will find new ribbons absolutely magnificent.
In addition, I had discovered few treasures, but I do not unveils you right away, and I do not give pictures of them to bring some excitement! ..
Get ready because I've prepared a kit for boys (the first one was sold out very rapidly…) and maybe even two. They will be incredibly beautiful and very GUYS!
In fact, everything has been ordered! Probably, that the kit in April will be online a little bit late, because the CHA was held later this year (usually it takes place in January), and therefore companies will start sending their news products just in March …
But do not worry! Please be patient! And I know how hard it is…
But rest assured that all the wonderful products that you have been presented, you will find in my kits or in my supplements!
I also prepared kits to give private lessons. Dear clients, you will not be disappointed ...
And now the pictures…
And as usual with the permission of companies I will show you more of creations made with products that collections themselves (that you have probably already seen on other sites and you have to go into my kits soon) to give you even more ideas…
(Excuse me for the quality of the pictures. This is not always easy to take the pictures between orders and surrounded by people ;-)
My beating heart of… I do not give you all of them because I reserve some secrets still…
You will surely find “Prima” products. Even new flowers, embossed among others (which are now "scratch"), which are absolutely beautiful. But you will find also beautiful papers and embellishments to breathless. Be assured, you will not fail in my kits. I returned to see them at their booth several times on the same day to see and review these wonders.
Another company, which you will find products is “Fancy Pants”. I loved their news products and of course their magnificent papers.
And there are also products of “Basic Gray”. Not everything, but I have several bursts of hearts. Again Bravo!
“Creative Imaginations” has made several beautiful products. The company has released new foils and new techniques to use them. I will show you them via the Make & Take I made at CHA.
And of course, the new collection of Karen Russell. It is wonderful as usual and as always you will have her products in my kits.
Swarovski Crystal in scrapbooking...
“Hambly Screen Prints”
And yes, you never doubt about it. Sure I could not avoid their products. New transparent papers, new Rub-ons and brand new stickers.
Bravo to the entire team! I salute you!
Their products are always beautiful. And I ordered some. I loved their scalloped and punctured papers.
There are even albums to put your pages that are scalloped.
“K & Company”, as always, their products are essential and very beautiful. Certainly you will be finding in my kits…
These papers are in the December's kit "Flamboyant Christmas"
These papers are in the kit "Romeo et Juliet"
I loved among others their new Rub-ons in color.
This album you can find in the kit of December "Vintage Christmas"
This double pages album gives you many possibilities for use it. You can find it in the kit of October "From A to Z".
New albums, beautiful embellishments, ribbons and die cut black sheers. I loved it. That gives so many opportunities…
This new company has been very successful at CHA. I also ordered their products!
"Jenni Bowlin Studio"
You have these products already in my kits since one year. I still liked the new collection too.
Unfortunately, I did not pictures, but you will have this magnificent goods coming into my kits ...
What innovation to the edge and what scalloped beautiful collections.
“Idea-ology” of Tim Holtz has done a beautiful kiosk. He was very much in his style. He took out several embellishments very interesting and new Grungeboard, smaller this time. I loved…
And since the last time I was fixed to the talent of Tim Holtz when he was the demonstrations of products and technique at Booyh of "Idea-ology" and "Ranger".
This Grungeboards you can find in the January kit "My home and my everyday 2"
“My Mind's Eye” has released 4 new collections in its style. I was not convinced with everything. But I ordered some papers that I found very beautiful.
The next product I do not have in my kits (matter of deadline etc), but I showed you , because I found it very interesting ...
Heidi Swapp introduced 2 major collections (paper and embellishments).
The fans of Elsie will have 3 new collections (if I am not mistaken).
“KI & Memories” made another Lace cardstock paper, very beautiful.
And very interessting collection from Teresa Collins
And… I have gone around.
There are others that I keep secret.
And there were many others that I have not photographed because it is impossible to photograph all so there's…
Now it is up to you to make your choices and do your purchases ...
