So sorry about my blogging negligence, but I got knocked down with a bit of food poisoning over the last 24-36 hours. It hasn't been pretty. But don't worry! I've still got paper crafting goodness to show you now that I'm upright again! I'm loving the comments ya'll are leaving. Keep it up! And remember, there will be a prize drawing at the end of these CHA posts for everyone who has commented.
1. First up today, Maya Road: Maya Road has always been known for its unique shaped albums and embellishments. These are typically made from chipboard or heavy-duty acrylic, and are perfect for theme-specific projects. And this year, their ENTIRE booth was filled with cute die-cut icons, and they've even expanded some of their best shapes into canvas and burlap. Such amazing texture. I have been addicted to burlap recently, and this booth seriously made me happy.
2. Next up: Heidi Swapp. With the Tag Line, 'She's Back!' you should know what to expect: Lots of detailed, trendy, use-with-anything papers and embellishments. And she's done it again. In the past several years, she been partnered with Advantus and then with House of 3 and Pink Paislee. She has kept her alliance with Pink Paislee, and has now brought back some of her best items from her previous lines...but all with a twist. If you remember her blank file folders, she has them again - except in larger sizes and new colors and patterns - some are even clear-resist Mistables! She has flags. She has banners. She has Polaroid-esque photo frames with labels to fit your iphone, instagram, or other 4x4 inch photos. Soooo cool! Honestly, these frames are one of my favorite items from the entire show.
Ok. That's it for today! Hope you're enjoying the pictures as much as I am enjoying posting them! Until tomorrow...
