I’m back from CHA. What a trip! The best one yet for me. We had such a great time in the Spellbinder’s booth and getting to know everyone so much better! We even had the opportunity to see some of the show. Unfortunately, I accidently left my camera on before I left and I had a dead battery by the time I got there!
My good friend Kazan, who I was blessed to room with while at the show, sent me this picture of the two of us. I’m sorry I don’t have any booth shots. I know that that Spellbinders has some up on their blog and on their facebook page and Kazan has some great ones on her blog as well. I did get to see some amazing art work and fantastic new product while I was there! It’s no secret that other than Spellbinders, some of my fave’s were Pink Paislee, Webster’s Pages, Maya Road and Crate Paper. Yum!
When I first got my new die templates several months back, I wanted to come up with a quick way to store some of the new ones. I put this book together but then didn’t get a chance to share it. I wanted to explain how I did it. First, I cut down magnetic vent covers. Second, I cut a two pieces of cardboard the same size for the front and back cover. I added paper and altered the cover with a quick, simple design. I stamped a Victorian Frame stamp from Layers of Color and then cut it out with Spellbinders Labels Fourteen die template.
After that, I punched holes with my Zutter and used Bind it All wire to bring it all together.
I hope this is is a helpful tip for you ins storing your die templates!
While at CHA, I wasn’t able to take a bunch of fun photos to share but I did still want to share a RAK with my blog readers who have been ever so patient with me!
In this photo is the latest issue of Paper Creations which I have a card featured. When I arrived home, I ended up with my box of two copies and my card! So, I want to give away this extra one, along with a current issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. Also in the picture is some Queen and Co. pearls and a tissue flower. We created these tissue flower pins as a make and take in the Spellbinder’s booth. They are so fun to make! Last but not least is a fabulous new black Spellbinder’s t shirt!!
Leave a comment on this post if you are interested in this RAK and I will leave it open until next Friday, midnight PST.
