CHA Notes from Cindy

Posted on: January 30, 2007

I took lots of pictures. I’ll get them to Gilbert very soon. Not having a
laptop at my hotel room was a real bummer so here are my late notes for what
they’re worth (pppppplllllbbbbbtt tt!)

KI MEMORIES
*Agree w/the others on Elsie’s lines – super cute! And I’m sure they’ll be
hot because of her “celeb” status.
*I also liked the new smaller color lab packages with only 3 vials, however
side note: we saw little bling charms similar to KI downstairs in Hall E
(Creative Charms – asian company). They also had larger gems similar to
Imaginesce
*I thought some of the “Heartfelt” items were cute too.

PRIMA
*Loved the embossed birds and butterflies and mini me’s

QUEEN & CO.
*Rolled felt – WOWIE!
*Biggie brads (I liked seeing these in brown, btw)

PAPER SALON
*Cute girl & boy lines
*They had a very complete “sentiments” stamp set good for cardmaking

HEIDI SWAPP
*The new single word foam stamps are fabulous (well at least that’s what the
one I sampled said on it). MSRP is $1.99 which seemed pretty good.
*Loved the oversized photo corners and new big brads. Also the ghost
butterfly slide used in the mk-n-tk
*Hot chocolate chip cookies. Not sure what the min order is on these, tho.

JUNKITZ
*Glad to hear we’re getting Extreme Boy and some Salsa embellishments.
*I also did a cute mk-n-tk book using a pink/blue/brown paper line that I
didn’t catch the name of

IMAGINATION PROJECT
*Circus Rose is very cute. The silhouette papers remind me of iPod ads.
*Cute staggered tag book (sold as a coasters sheet)
*Lots of cute calendar items and ledger papers
*The new papers in Blue Cardigan, Chloe’s Closet and Chartreuse Dream were
all very cute.
(Met Greta Hammond, too – she’s sweet!)

We R Memory Keepers
-Flower Patch suede flowers
-Wood knots
-Designer Eyelets
-Hardware kit (tin)
-Green cropadile is getting buzz (guess some folks aren’t big on pink)

ELLISON HOUSE OF STYLE
*Was just awesome and oozing with wonderful ideas. Loved it!
*Side note: saw a mk-n-tk using some rub-ons that looked suspiciously like
QK icing. So, either they’ve come out with their own version or were using
those. Hmmmm…..

DELISH DESIGNS
*Loved the classy elegance of this company (the owner Sally was great)
*Too bad the bling brads are co$tly because they’re gorgeous.
*Love the chipboard and rubon alphas wtih flourishes in them. The rubons were also in graduated sizes which I like.

LUXE DESIGNS
-Really gorgeous papers.
-The rubons came in some shapes that seemed unique to me (including circle frames and interesting borders).

ROUGE DE GARANCE
-Original papers. Loved the brilliant colors and artsy look.
-Gigantic rubons for walls were very cool (noticed that home decor trend at a lot of the booths)

DAISY BUCKETS
-cute paper

DOODLEBUG
-The thing I remember is the embossed paper. Seems like the stamps were
cute, but I didn’t take a photo and can’t remember them now. 😦

COSMO CRICKET
-So glad you’ve ordered the Buck Naked chipboard and matching die cut
papers. These are AWESOME!

ONE HEART ONE MIND
-Lots of b&w and pink in the booth. Loved the “stacks” buttons & beads and
the doo-dots coordinating brads & bling
-They also had some small acrylic pieces that were similar to the old Heidi
Grace stuff but WAAAAaaaaay cuter.

EK SUCCESS
-1 2 3-D Paper Crafting System w/ instruction guide and DVD was pretty
nifty. Not sure if it would be too intimidating for the average scrapper
tho. It makes an incredible amount of different items from the one set
(packaged a lot like the curvy cutter)

MAKING MEMORIES
-The new rub-on books are cool (esp Doodles, Flourishes & Icons)
-“Show & Tell” idea book looks good
-“Sweets” (dimensional embellies – can’t tell if these are pillow or epoxy,
but loved them)
-Jumbo pebble brads are cute
-Loved the entire Funky Vintage line (particularly the embellishments, much
more so than the papers. The trims/ribbons on spools are awesome)
-Fresh Anthology is also very cute

CAROLEE’S/ADORNIT
-Had lots of cute stuff including some cute dance stuff.
-Cute wood words (letters) for altering, too

BOXER
-Lots of stamps and don’t remember it all, but wanted to point out for Tina
& Michelle that they had some pet stamps that looked pretty cute.

CALAMBOUR
-OMGARSH!!! I *love* this line. It is vintage/retro style from Italy. I was
telling Tina that it doesn’t strike me as what is hot in SGT, but it totally
spoke to me.

COLORBOX
-has new shades of chalk ink – YUMMY!

K&CO
-Classic K
-Bailey
-Amy Butler: Belle & Sola
-K&Co. to go:
Loved Brenda Wallton Dollhouse (didn’t realize we already have this in the store)
Sparkly Sweet
Brookfield
-Love the Purse and Flower tablets with die cut project ready to go!
-Did a mk-n-tk with the new Girl Scout line and was surprised to be able to
meet Angelia Wiggington in person (she was a co-winner in the $20K contest)

ANNA GRIFFIN
-THRILLED that we’re getting some of her stuff in. I really love it.

(also enjoyed a similar brand called Webster’s Pages which is new to the
paper field –last show they only came with some silvery stuff — they had
it again this time. I think it’s some kind of sticker, but I wasn’t too
impressed. However the paper and sample projects were pretty cool.)

DCWV/PRESSED PETALS
-Love the stiching rubons for people like me who can’t pull the sewing
machine out too often.
-Pressed Petals has lots of new large scale stuff for home decor which I’m
sure you saw. Also some small metal letters that were much cuter than any
I’ve ever seen from them before.

MAYA ROAD
-They have a cut ribbon (either velvet or felt) that reminds me of the Queen
& Co felt, except that it looks much more delicate and vintagey. It’s not
quite as wide. Loved it!
-I also saw ideas for using their shaped chipboard without having to cut
papers to size, which was very helpful for planning future classes/mk-n- tks
etc.
-Small booth, but lots to look at!

Well, there was more than this, but a lot of times when I ogled I forgot to
write stuff down -lol!
