Well here I am all curled up on my hotel room bed after my first very long day at CHA. There was so much to see that it is almost all a big fuzzy blur in my head, but I'll try my best to share with you was stuck out the most. I'm afraid I didn't take too many photos though, but I'll see if I can satisfy you with links. Here are a few "WOWS" for the day.
Cricut Cake - Ok, so it isn't paper crafting, but it sure wow'd me. There is now a cricut that you can use to cut FOOD! Yes FOOD. Well, flat food, like fondant for decorating cakes. Seriously, I kid you not! You can use all of your cartridges in it. Check it out: http://www.cricut.com/cricutcake/ I was too busy salivating over all the cakes that I forgot to look at the other cricut stuff. I guess I'll be back tomorrow.
Basic Grey - They never fail to disappoint! Check out the new lines. http://www.basicgrey.com/
BoBunny - Another company that I always look forward to viewing Their Mama-Razzi line will be the first I use from my sample pack. http://www.bobunny.com/winter2010release.html
Core'dinations - How many different ideas can they come up with for cardstock? They have some lovely new embossed Core Impressons and now glitter cardstock and shimmery cardstock as well. I don't see the new product up on their website just yet.
Tim Holtz - You can peek at his blog to see all of his newest releases. I didn't get the opportunity to see the suitcase machine in action, but rest assured that all of the sizzix dies have been ordered! http://www.timholtz.typepad.com/
CraftWell - I checked out this new machine that many of you have asked me about and now I've got the answers you were looking for. I still have other machines to check out. http://www.timholtz.typepad.com/
I'm running out of steam so here is a quick list of other companies you can expect to see new product in the store from in the near future:
