CHA Recap – The Products (Part I)

Good evening, readers!
I seldom post in the evening, but I figured I had better get some CHA photos up before the memories become blurred and it becomes too passe to talk about!

Over the next few days, I’ll break down the CHA show into a series of three: 1. New Products, 2. The People and 3. The Experience through my own eyes as a newbie attendee.

The following photos are the ones I snapped at CHA unless otherwise noted. I actually didn’t end up taking as many as I thought! Which wasn’t disappointing, but a bit of a relief. I mean well with that because I spent a lot of time taking products in as well as ensuring that my friends had my attention, too. Also, silly me – most of these photos were taken on my iPhone and I did no post-editing on them so bare with me about the quality!

Wthout further ado, these are a few of my favourite things (I’ll keep the singing to The Sound of Music to a minimum, lol):

One of my “new to me” finds was my love of quilling! A tried, tested and true way of embellishing paper projects and many other things such as jewwllery. Alli was so sweet; Suzanne and I just loved creating our quilled heart ring!
Next was the Paper Smooches booth where I got to meet Carole, my teammate from Your Next Stamp. My-oh-my! Have you had a chance to check out their website? They’ve been previewing the new clear stamps, wood mount stamps and dies this past month and it’s been awesome to see them grow.
 It was all fun and games at the My Mind’s Eye booth where you were able to win this washi tape decorated bike. I love the fact that my pants matched the bike!
One of my most favourite new lines of paper was at Basic Grey, Hipster. 
Check out this gorgeous 3D project at the Prima booth:
 TGF images spotted at the Perfect Layers booth.

 I just adored the lovely ladies from Lawn Fawn who facilitated a new make & take project each day. They were so patient with all. 
 Scotch tape and the many, many decorative tapes you can get. Functional and fun!
 One of the best decorated booths I saw was Viva Decor’s tribute to the Mad Hatter’s Tea.

 The Cheshire Cat sure had me mesmerized, lol.

Another beautifully decorated booth by GCD Studios.
 One last YAY from this girl; I just adored the chicken coop wire used for display at GCD Studios. 
 Hope you enjoyed my little product recap. Trust me when I say that this list could be SO. MUCH. longer! Come back tomorrow to see The People of CHA post. xo
