CHA recap day 1!

CHA recap day 1!

Good morning and wow what a week!  Are you all happy it's Friday?  The team is very excited after our trip to CHA in Annaheim.  It was an amazing time connecting with manufacturers, seeing fun trends and playing with brand new products.  I did say it was like being in a candy store  last week right?  I lied.  It's so much BETTER!  Wait until you see the beautiful things headed to a store near you soon and if I could sum up CHA in one word…it would be INNOVATION.   A great deal of time and thought has gone into the new products to give you even more benefits and creative opportunities.  We did take some pictures that we wanted to share.  While they are from an iPhone as we were moving so fast, I do have a little surprise in store for you tomorrow! 🙂   Let's get started!

Simple Stories



Loved this new Daily Grind collection!


Excuse my hand in there but I had to show you that these amazing page protectors actually have additional pockets for more pictures!  Love that!



Here is Doodlebug's brand new dotted vellum!  Beautiful colours and a few new colours too!




This booth my friends, was beautiful!  Full of stunning projects ranging from jewellry, papercrafts, mixed media, home decor and so much more!




and lastly Maya Road!  Loved these booth and all the wonderful things we will be including in our kits and events this year!  Caroline and I also got to chat more about her classes for Crop & Create Markham!




We have more to share and a little surprise for you tomorrow!  See you then!
