Hello from Sunny California

We are at the Craft and Hobby Association winter show, where all the new spring and summer products are revealed. We have taken a few classes and have been very inspired by what we have seen. I know I have fallen in love with some things. We took a class from Melissa Francis and I loved her papers and the things she offered to embellish with. One very unique thing was crepe paper. We made beautiful roses with her very thick crepe paper. Here are some other things at her booth that inspired me.

We visited Tattered Angels and saw the new Glimmer Glaze, and Glimmer Glam. Both are brushed on but with a little different results. You will now be able to paint on a translucent glaze of color with shimmer onto Glimmer Glass and Chipboard. The Glam has colored glitter in it along with the mica base we are used to in the mists. They also have expanded the Traveler embellishments with glimmer chips and glass. Hiedi Swapp has now joined the design team at Tattered Angels, and has a whole line with the embossed resist we are used to on her "Invisibles". All was very cool !!!! I can't wait to recieve the new stuff in March.

I stopped by the Ideaology booth to see Tim Holtz's NEW items and they were drop dead gorgeous. I mean gotta have NOW beautiful, and second best to that I got to order them for you. They will be in the store soon and we will have ideas on how to use them. There are new metals, a tissue ribbon, 12x12 paper pad, & metal clock faces. Here is a samples of a grunge paper coat that was on display. Tommorrow I will try to post photos of some other Tim things with metal.
So tommorrow more classes and more photos of some beautiful new products!
Until then CREATE !
