CHA Giveaway DAY 2!!

Oh my oh my!!!!  What a great day we had yesterday!!  CHA does a "Supershow" which involves many of the CHA vendors, but is open to the public to come SHOPPING!!!  So many of my favourite companies were there showing their wares... including new releases!!!  I didn't get a chance to check it all out, however, as Christy and I were working the Westcott booth most of the day meeting fabulous crafters from all over the country (and some Canadians eh?)!!  It was way too much fun especially as we were giving away "FREE SCISSORS" all day long to everyone that walked by!!!!

I also got to visit Crystal and the Scrapbook Pantry gang doing their gig and "just so happened" to time it with Tim Holtz presenting!!!

I noticed several of you mentioned that you were most anticipating Tim Holtz releases... well... I am sworn to secrecy for just a couple more days until CHA officially begins (with a Press badge, I am privy to some sneak peeks!), but let me just say.... WOW! COOL! LOVE IT! WANT IT!! NEED IT!!

I promise to share when able, but for now, let this tide you over...  (Linda... this one's specially for you)




And we are also VERY excited about what we've seen from 7Gypsies, Provo Craft, LYB, Shabby
Green Door and My Mind's Eye!!  I'll be able to share more pictures from today walking the floor!!

Can we not choose all three??? I would have to say paper. I love love love patterned paper, and I find that the paper has evolved into its own mini works of art. I also think that if you get creative enough with your paper, you don't "need" as many embellishments! *gasp!*

Diane said...

For sure - TOOLS! I'm a fool for tools!

JacciBlue said...

Paper!!

Nancy said...

I love embellishments... that add the "special something" to a project when all that's needed is a little something more.

Johanna said...

Embellishments ...like looking and playing with jewels...Glad you two are having fun...

Sacha said...

Judging by my paper collection I would have to say paper. I just love all of the pretty colors and patterns and even though I swear not to buy more I cannot resist.

Eryn said...

I'm a tools girl.....have more than I could ever use but continue to buy more!!!!!

Doramiyi said...

Gotta say it's all the about the tools. With the right tools you can make your own paper and embellishments. Thanks for the chance to win.

Oh man! I wish I was there with you!!!!

What excites you the most and why:
I'd have to say PAPER! I 've always loved colors and when I see a great mix & pattern ... it gets me every time! Plus if it's got a pattern that I can cut out well I will definitely use that for embellishments, no doubt about that! ;)

HAVE FUN!!!

Marlie said...

All of them! It's really a combination of all of these items coming together that is exciting for me!I sure would have liked the free scissors though! I can never find them when I need them!

Amanda said...

Paper paper paper -- I love to see the new lines, colours, patterns. So inspiring!

Janet said...

Tools for sure---wish I could be there

c7kw said...

Embellishments are my fave because you can do so much with them, not just scrapbook. But without paper and tools, I'd probably be lost so I like all three!

coRinne not connie said...

embellishments baby - all the way - although - the paper isn't that bad either!
have a blast!

Rose said...

Tools. Someone said my thoughts already: with tools embelishments and paper are creatable.

Rita Grant said...

I would have to say Paper can never leave scrapbook store without buying paper....love the colors, patterns....so much always to choose from....hmmmm just love the STUFF....

Rita Grant said...

Jennifer Reynard said...

Paper, paper and more paper.
I just love it and seem to have quite a collection which I "intend" to use someday?!?! LOL

Heather said...

It's all about the embellishments for me!!! I pick papers based on the embellies that I love. Great photo of you & Tim!!

Michelle said...

That is tough!!! I love love paper, it's always sooo pretty but, embellishments are definately close...I'm such a collector! Aren't we all?!!!

Robin said...

Hmmm...this is a hard one. But I will have to go with paper. So many wonderful choices. The colors, the patterns, the textures, I can't get enough of paper.

Liz said...

I have to say anything scrappy gets me excited, however. I am sucker for new tools!!!

Kate said...

Tell me I am not the first person to notice the faux pas...LOL I know the CHA releases are totally exciting BUT please tell me somebody else noticed this. I'm pretty sure the Scrapbook PantRy hasn't started selling lingerie. Yet. Tee hee.

As for the question..well...can I choose it all? No? Then the paper for sure. You can do a lot with amazing paper!!!

I have to admit I am a bit of a gadget girl...so bring on the tools, die cut machines, ambossing folders and ALL!

Dawn Hueser said...

Well your probably not going to allow me to say all of the above......so I will go with tools edging out as winners.

traceyd said...

Embellishments, every page loves a little bling.

Betty said...

I would have to say paper.Being on the patterned paper.Very excited to see the new lines.

silvia said...

Embellies excite me the most because I like to combine textures and elements on my projects.

serena said...

paper - it is just so irrisistable all those lovely new patterns

melanie said...

Paper is what gets me going! The colours make me feel things.

dixon246 said...

Everything. There is so much beautiful paper on the market. I am a bling girl so if it sparkles or shimmers it will find its way into my projects. I am a tool freak big time. I like to find a new way to use the tools I have. Ask me about driving the staff crazy at Home Depot.
