CHA Re-Cap & Facebook Contest Winners!

 What a great week this has been! We have all finally made it home and now we are settling in from the past week at the CHA Winter show in Sunny (and cold) California. What a great time we had! For those of you who couldn't make it, we wanted to share a little re-cap from the show.

Let the fun begin! We started set-up on Friday morning. With the help of our awesome team, it all came together pretty quick & easy!

While everyone else was hard at work on the booth, I (Emily) began making some samples from some of the BRAND NEW collections that even our Design Team hadn't seen yet. We always like to keep a few surprises up our sleeves! 

Here's another sample project made with our upcoming collection, "Grace." 

That evening, I taught a fun little make & take with "Lovely" at an event put on by Imagine Crafts. Everyone received a calendar and did a total of 12 make & takes at the event to add to it. I was Ms. February. 

Everyone seemed to really love it! We had a lot of fun!

Our team ready for CHA to begin! (Dan, Emily, Melodee, Bret, Sam, & Ryan)


We hosted a make & take at our booth featuring our new file folders and our "Renew" collection, it went over really well! 


I even got asked for a few autographs!

We were even showered with gifts! 

Patti from The Queen's Ink brought us one of her beautiful altered cigar boxes made with our "lovely" collection. 

A view of our "Seasons" Petite collections on display. 

Projects made with all 4 "Seasons" by Design Team Member Janeen Shember.

We also got to meet & hang out with one of our very talented Design Team Members, Loes de Groot! 

Last, but not least, we didn't forget about our fans! We promised a winner every day for our Facebook contest... so here are the lucky winners!
