Leave a light on for Santa ’cause it’s Summer CHA!


Hello! I had such a fun time today at CHA! I was seeing so much Holiday product, that I had to post this card that I made a while back! I used How Delightful and clear heat embossed the shade, cut it out and adhered it to the stamped lamp. I wanted it to look like an old timey lamp :). I really like the wonkyness of the card. It makes me smile!

Okay, speaky of wonky, my camera was being all crazy and diva like today at CHA, so I only got a few photos, but I still hope you enjoy them. I put them up at my Flickr here. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I just love American Crafts. They are my happy place! All of their new lines are fabulous! I also just adore Elizabeth Kartchner. She is just the sweetest! I also just love Grant at American Crafts too. They are just so nice! I hope I can take some pics tomorrow or Thursday of their new product!

Okay, I am off to bed! Tomorrow I FINALLY get to meet Lynnette in person. I am so excited! We have been blog buds for so long! Yay!

Hugs to you all!

Letterbox Lovely


I just love the American Crafts Letterbox line, don’t you? It’s just so pretty! I love pairing it with Sew Lovely. I actually hadn’t used Sew Lovely for a while (for shame!), when I started making this card as a sample for our first Malaysian store! I am so excited about that!

The Copic class was fun today! Mike keeps joking with me that I am now certified in coloring. Haha! 🙂 Tomorrow I will be at the trade show walking around, going to some meetings, and hopefully meeting some of you!

I hope you guys have a wonderful Tuesday! Hugs!

I thought this little card was perfect as so many people are traveling to Chicago for the big Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) trade show! Today I am taking the Copic Certification class, and I am so excited! It should be such a blast! I also can’t wait to meet some of you at CHA! Wooooo!

I hope you are all having a great day!
