Before I pick up again with the final CHA reveal, I have a most exciting invitation for YOU!!!
If you would like to be part of something truly important AND have tons of creative fun at the same time, I'd love to have you attend our Crop For Mexico event!!!!
We have 2 super fun things going on April 2 here in Calgary...
1. A crop event where 100% of your cost goes towards building homes in Mexico for needy families! We have special guest instructors and you get to choose a class from one of them as part of your registration (see link for more info and class photos) PLUS you get lunch, supper and tons of goodies!!!!
2. A "Garage Sale" of new and gently used craft items where 100% is again donated to our Mexico homes!!! You do NOT need to attend the crop to come SHOP at the Garage Sale!!!
Registration for Crop For Mexico opens TODAY!!!
Now back to some eye candy from CHA!!!
One of my all-time fav companies is Basic Grey and Christy Riopel showed you a peek at some of their fantastic new lines, but here is what caught my eye!!! Ribbon Doilies!!!!
And still in partnership with Basic Grey... Core'dinations has sandable cardstock that coordinates with Basic Grey!!!!!!!!!! Just check out their scrumptious patterns and colours!!!!
And YEAH for Canadian companies like MyStamp Box!!!! Here is a fantastic new set of stamps that has HUGE potential!!! If you want to see some layouts, check out my good friend Jill Hildebrand's amazing work as she designs for MyStamp Box!!!
Now this got my attention!! I'm not actually familiar with the Vintage Street Market company, but I'm in love with this Tinted Tape product and it's potential!!!
Looks like you can add a fun edge to your papers and of course I'm thinking of photos!!!!!!! It comes in a variety of styles like the "soot" one above and the "aged" one below. Definitely going to be checking out this company!!!!
And I'm always on the look out for new tools and this one from We R Memory Keepers caught my eye as it can help me "sew" or at least look like I've sewn on my layouts with ease!!! Hence the name "SewEasy"...
And not sure if this is a new release or just newer to me, but I got to see this Distressing tool by Zutter called the "Distrezz-it-all" in action a couple weekends ago at a retreat I was at and the local store sold out of them once we saw it work!!!! I distressed an entire layout with a ton of assorted pieces in a matter of minutes!!! It was a beautiful thing :)
Okay... I know there is so much more, but this will do it for our recap for this Winter CHA 2011 event!!! I must say I missed seeing all the goodies up close and personal and really missed catching up with some of my friends in the industry (and our Crazy Canuck dinner we always do), but I've been busy with some pretty important "LIFE" stuff so I don't regret my decision for a moment!!!
Final question you can enter to win (remember that we will pick a winner on Monday... VALENTINE'S DAY between all entries from all days on my blog below and on Christy's blog!)
If money were no object, what "creative experience", event, tool, product, etc. would you splurge on?
