CHA Review

For those of you who think I've fallen off the face of the earth, I've been flat on my back, in bed, sicker than sick since Wednesday night. I've never had an illness hit me so fast and hard. Today is the first day that I feel like I even have enough energy to type. Although, I'm far from better and will be seeing the Dr. tomorrow.

I think most of my photo sharing from CHA will have to wait until a bit later. The CHA online crop at the Fiskateer site was a great success. My challenge was Wednesday and Betsy was the winner!!!! Congrats to you!

I wanted to share some of my favorite finds. My absolutle favorite discovery this year was GCD Studious new release paper. This is paper you just have to see irl. All the paper has a linen texture and some of it is flocked or has shimmer or foil. It's just so unique you have to go check it out at their website here. Every piece of paper looks like a piece of art already! Here is just an example.






















Graphic 45 apparently had the 'coolest' looking booth ever. I didn't actually get to see it or any of the new releases. Pink Paislee of course had an incredibly beautiful booth and I will share photos later.

Here is a project that I got to make with Provo Craft. One of their new cartridges is called Euro Decor. That's what I used to make this. Lucky for me, I got a catridge for Christmas of one that I already have so I will definitely be trading it in for this!!

















Do you remember when Fiskars came out with the Threading Water Border Punch and it was back ordered, forever it seems?? Well, they have come out with a few more great ones. My favorite being Effervescense and Apron Lace. Too much fun!! I'm sure you will be hearing A LOT about those.

Hottest new trend??? Canvas. I saw a few VERY cool canvas bags and I think those will be all the rage.

Okay, of course I can't sign off without sharin' the Fiskars Love so one lucky post will be gettin some from me. ;)

Off to get my hot tea and some more rest.

Have a blessed week!

I was just thinking about you today and wondering how you were doing. I'd noticed that you hadn't been on the boards lately. Glad you had such a great time at CHA! Sorry you're sick! Get well soon, my friend!

Hi Julie! Sooooo sorry you are so sick. Sounds like you got hit with the flu. Glad you're starting to feel a bit more human again and hope you start recovering quickly now. How awful.
But how cool you got to go to CHA. I love to hear the news from there. Hope you'll share some more soon. I just went and checked out GCD studios. They do definitely have some cool looking stuff, although I couldn't tell from the website what exactly was new.
Your Provo Craft project box is adorable. SO pretty.
Feel better!

Hope you are feeling better. I love your projects and blog. How sweet of you to give away some Fiska-love. I wish that I would have thought while I was in Arizona to stop at Joanns and see if they had the new Fiskar border punches but I forgot all about it.
