CHA Day 2

So last night I got just enough sleep to wake up at 2am as giddy as a girl before Christmas in anticipation for day 2 of the show. Thankfully I fell back asleep, but unfotunately at 4am, so you get the picture.

Speaking of pictures, I remembered to take some today: Here I am at the KI booth placing and order on some collections that will arrive in May - so we'll have to wait a bit.

I also ordered some of their die cut "lace" paper and groovy rubons. Then I stopped by the Doodlebug booth and placed an order. They're coming out the the coolest stuff to add Velvet flocking to your layouts. Its sounds complicated, but its really quite simple, and very, very cool.

Then it was off to basics with Bazzill and American Crafts. These companies are being really awesome helping me set up all my orders, so its making it really easy!

I scoped out Basic Grey & Crate Paper and will go back and order tomorrow. Will also get some Daisy D's. Haven't made it to My Mind's Eye yet (Tres Jolie, Wild Asparagus, etc). But I'll go their tomorrow, too.

Oh, and before I forget, remember raindots? They're those cool acrylic spots. We'll they've come out with a great line of titles and themed embellishments made from the same material. The bummer is they won't ship til April, but they're going to be worth the wait.

By far, the coolest new technique (& is also a kit) is the nifty & EASY way to cover a scrapbook with your own fabric. The guy who designs the Maude Asbury albums designed it. Not only will you be able to create a scrapbook with any color cover you want, you can also cover it with a sports jersey, t-shirt, quilt, or upholstery fabric. Its quite cool!
So, I'm officially wiped, and can tell my spelling and grammer have faired no better, but I'm so excited!

Oh, and no stapler accidents today, so that's a step in the right direction.

A la manana!
