CHA-W, 2012 Day 3
Although the winter show will go for one more day, our time here has come to an end. To be honest, i'm kind of glad. My poor broken foot is reeeeeally not happy with me running back and forth over a trade show the size of 4 football fields for three days! HA! But it was worth it to get my grubby hands on some of the top releases!
I promised that I had a TON of stuff to show you so lets just get right to it shall we?
In no particular order:
Aren't these bottles absolutely GORGEOUS! I have got to find out where the artist got her toppers, so that I can recreate this masterpiece for my own studio! These lovelies were found outside the Prima booth, using the Almanac products!
LOOK!!! Jesse James beads! These are dahling!!!! A definite fabulous find!
DANG... Finding stuff I can SHOW you guys is hard! I don't want to ruin any "surprises!" hahahaha!!! Let's see what else we have on the ol' memory card...
OH! OH! OH! Lookit this! Look VERY closely at that spoon..... do you see what I see? YEP! A technique kit in our future to show you just how to do this! I fell in love with this project so much, that I went and bought an old spoon so that I could create this one myself! Pardon the poor photo - all I had this day was my cell phone :-(
This fun little ATC Library card drawer is going to belong to one, or two (or more) lucky ladies in the next couple of months! *wink*
Okay ladies, this thing is absolutely AMAZING! A wreath made out of different sized stretched canvases! I was totally wowed by the creativity shown here. Canvas corp designers never cease to amaze me with their outstanding displays!
Here are a few more FABULOUS canvas display pieces...
As ALWAYS - Kaisercraft did NOT disappoint! Their release had some stunning paper lines in it, and their booth was flooded with amazing projects using the new papers, as well as their new MDF Project pieces:
Here's a totally awesome recipe book by 7gypsies. Boy Howdy, did they make a fantastic come back after being purchased by Canvas Corp!
LaBlanche stamps has the most detailed, and beautiful stamping displays I've ever seen - HANDS DOWN! Here is just a small sampling of what I found in their booth...
Here are just a few of my favorite new stamps by LaBlanche!
And here is some absolutely FREAKIN' A-MAZING pieces done by mixed media artist - Anna Dabrowska!
This LARGE canvas was created by Anna specifically for display at the Prima Marketing booth. This amazing piece of mixed media art took Anna 2 days to complete, and is a depiction of Anna, as Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream. Can you see Anna's face, and the long flowing gown??
Would you love to learn Anna's techniques? You're going to get that chance - VERY SOON! Keep your eyes peeled on Swirlydoos for some MAJOR announcements coming soon!
Here is Anna and myself at the Prima booth last night after the show closed. Do we look as dead as we felt? What a looooooooong day!
Oh, and since one of my girls (I think it was Peggy) wanted to know what we worked on in Anna's class, I'll show you a very RAW photo of the project I did on Saturday night over at Prima's warehouse. Keep in mind that this baby is NOT complete. I'm slow.. I was busy chatting with everyone and didn't get my work done. Now I have homework! LOL! And as Anna has told me, when I think i'm finished putting embellishments on it, I need to go to the toilet, take a break, and when I come back with fresh eyes - I need to ADD MORE STUFF! Then glimmer mist the hell out of it!
In closing, I will leave you with images from around the Prima Marketing booth. There is so much God given talent in that one small space, that it ought to be a crime!
Here is Miss Sharon Lakkonnen showing (and telling) her PHONE about all the new pretty papers.... (That girl ain't right) LMAOOOOO!! j/k honey!
Pictured here (in the first two chairs on the left side of the table) are Pretty Miss Pom, and Miss Sherry Mendoza pretending to be busy at work so that they don't really have to work! By this time today, we were all LONG overdue for a drink!
The next few inspirational pieces were all created using Prima's new ALMANAC line
And with that, it's time for one last round of hugs. I grab my (shhhh it's a secret - for now!) and walk out of the booth, with promises to return (with some of my friends) for a very special get together in July.
I say goodbye to CHA, and head to the beach where I put my toes in the sand and say goodbye to today...
