CHA Day 4

Hello, World!
CHA has officially ended for this year, but don't worry, the pics are gonna keep coming for awhile!
Remember, these pictures are going to help Christy decide what to order for the store soon, so if you want any input, you've got to comment! Please! I thrive on comments. It's pitiful, but it does make me happy :) And besides, every day that you comment, you'll be entered into a drawing for a prize pack from Scraphappy.

Today we are going to focus on some of the smaller companies showing here.
1. First up, Kaiser Craft. Kaiser Craft is an Australian company that has a huge presence Down Under, but which you don't find very often here in the States. But their stuff is awesome. I really, really like! You'll notice in these pictures, that there are 6x6 paper pads for each collection. This has been a general trend at this year's CHA. Most of the companies are producing their lines in this manner. The patterns are usually scaled down a bit to make them perfect for card making or when you only want a small bit of pattern on your project. If you ever study my layouts, you'll see that this is a technique I use over and over again, so I typically like to buy the 6x6 pads whenever I can.





2. And now, Simple Stories...I know several of you are Simple Stories addicts, so I had to find their booth to show you their latest and greatest. Honestly, some of these new papers are my favorites from them EVER. Just wait till you see the 12x12 sheet of mini-Bingo cards. I mean, seriously, HELLO! Can I hoard you until eternity? Lol.






And look at these new album pages. Simple Stories is introducing a line of customizable 6x8" minibooks. You mix and match the page protectors and papers to make the album however you want it. I'm thinking this is what I'll use for next year's December Daily album. It's that perfect.
 3. And lastly for today, 7Gypsies. If you have ever used 7Gypsies before, then you know that they are known for vintage chic. Their shadowboxes and hardware pieces make gorgeous home decor. If you read the blog regularly, then you saw my Christmas shadow box I made using a 7Gypsies product. They have now introduced shadow boxes in various dimensions, some of which even have circular openings.






Ok. That's all for today.  I hope you're enjoying the inspiration and new products! Keep the comments coming! Until tomorrow...
