Our New Challenge for February

Hi Everyone,
This month's challenge comes from the aisle of the CHA Conference this week. While, oohing and aahing down the many aisles, I came across the Tattered Angels booth. Tattered Angels, what's that? Well, they are the creators of Glimmer Mist. You know those little spray bottles that I have been drooling about. Well, while I was at their booth I came across some interesting techniques, including some masking techniques (needless to say I purchased all their new colors for Spring and Summer and some big sellers (Platinum, Gold, etc) ). They tried them on naked and decorated chipboard (don't worry - I ordered some of these, too). So, I said, what the hey. Once, I started really playing with them, I fell totally in love with them. And, so will you. Try them out. I dare you!

Dare to be different and try out our monthly challenge. But, this one is a technique challenge. What's a technique challenge you ask? Well, that's when I ask you to go outside your box and do something totally different. For the next two weeks, mull it over, think about, and try it out. Use Glimmer Mist in any fashion. That's right on anything!

AAAUUUUGGGHHH! Is that what you are screaming? Well, don't feel bad, I am taking this challenge with you. But, I have a head start. So, pick my brain and ask me what you wish.

Let's Play!

Bring your completed project to Dee's by February 29th to qualify for a drawing to win a goodie bag full of brand new products. This one will be incredible!


Hi Everyone,

What can I say?
It was awesome!
The best one so far!
I have never seen such beautiful product. Chatterbox came back with a punch. Doodlebug has gone to new highs and Creative Imaginations is magnifique. I also discovered a little jewel named Dream Street Designs and another Australian manufacturer run by a whole bunch of sexy sounding YOUNG Men that SCRAPBOOK. That's right scrapbook! They gave us tons of will love them. But, the fun doesn't end there. I loved Fancy Pants (as always) and Prima (OMG), American Crafts (and their AMPLIFIED LINE - Unbelievable). I have never oohed and aahed as much in my life. Bazzill's on the edge and Scenic Route's paper you must see IRL. Oh and Pebbles and Rusty Pickle can't be left behind either. Their new Lucky Collection is coming just in time for our Lucky You Crop. I have big plans for this one.
The prizes were just as awesome. I have a Cricut cartridge that is a CHA exclusive, it's not even ready to ship yet. Oh and let's not forget Making Memories new "Slice". The T-shirts say it all. Prepare to be flocked, filigreed, foiled, and "fabulized".
My uncle is going to be working on the upstairs this it looks like we will be ready for the CROP after all. We still have 4 spots left upstairs. So, hurry don't miss out!
Well, I'd better go, I am trying to put an e-mail together for this weekend. Look out for it.
Talk soon,

Sorry ladies...I forgot a couple

Hi again,

Sorry, I forgot to tell all of you about 2 other must haves for this trip Rendez-vous and Sandylion's new line from Rouge de Garance. You guys know I love stuff from abroad (my undying love for Urban lily - another must have for this trip). I have been watching Rouge for a year now and they are finally in the US. Yippee!!!! I know the list keeps getting longer. Thank Gosh, they are not shipping all these things at the same time or I'd have to mortgage my home to pay the bills. But, they will all be here before you know it.

Oh and I almost forgot I haven't seen the sneak peak from one of my all-time favorites...guess which one and you could win 1 of each of the papers for you own collection.

Also, the challenge is good through the 15th so don't miss out!
And for those of you who don't get our emails, you need to sign up to find out about our sales.
This week I am sharing the code CHA Special and get 50% (FIFTY PERCENT) off your entire purchase (some exclusions do apply). We will be closing at 4 pm on Saturday, so don't miss out. We will also be CLOSED on Sunday!
But, stop by before then and enjoy our special. Once the Show begins this sale is over!

See you soon!

Remember the more you spend this week the more I can spend at CHA! Happy Shopping!


It's almost time for CHA

In just a couple of days I will boarding a plane headed for Anaheim California the home of winter CHA. I am just thrilled! I can't believe it. I love my husband. He is fantastic. I don't know what I would do without him. He is footing the entire trip! What a man!

But, let's move on to the real reason behind my blog today. Besides the fact that it's been a while, I have so much CHA stuff to go over I can't help myself. I want it all. I have already started ordering and I must tell you that Piggy Tales has also agreed to send us goodies for the crop. I can't wait. You guys have to go check them out . The new lines are hot. I love the Mulan's black, red, and white. Just perfect. I also ordered the cutest boy line - Toy Soldier - with trains on it, even on the ribbon. I have also ordered from Scenic Route. They have buttons now! Awesome. But, the best secrets are best kept secrets. I am completely in love with everything!

You guys know how I am a paper hoa-. Well, I am quickly becoming a gizmo and gadgets girl, a stamper, a lover of it all. Some of it I blame on Kellie. She just knows the best tricks for everything. I delved into alcohol ink, staz on, glimmer mist, and so much more. What is a girl to do. I must admit I am also in love with Creative Imaginations everything. Okay, I lie I've always been in love with all things CI, this is a long term affair. Sad but true. I am so in love they might be my first order.

These are my first 10 hits @ CHA, lets see if you love them too:
Creative Imaginations
Fancy Pants
Dream Street
We R Memory Keepers
Queen and Co
Basic Grey
Daisy Bucket
