CHA the journey continues...

Happy Wednesday Bloggers!!

One of my favorite products were Tim's amazing stencils. I think stencils are great for adding another layer to your projects. Whether you are creating a mix media project, making a card or even a tag, stencils are a good way to add texture. Watch the video here, Tim is demoing for Paper Crafters Corner at the show.

Look at all the texture that was created with the stencil. Don't you want to reach out and touch it. The size of the stencils are perfect, so easy to use and storing them is a breeze with the hole at the top. Just add a ring to the top. Here are a few cards I made with my favorite stencils. 

This card was done with the Burlap Stencil.

Rays Stencil

Bubbles Stencil

Clockwork Stencil

Stars and Eye Chart Stencil

Measured Stencil

This card was one of my favorites the Splatter Stencil.

If you've never used stencil you should try them. It's so easy! 
Find these stencils and Tim's new products at Inspiration Emporium, they have it all coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

The CHA Journey!

Hi bloggers! Wow, it's been over a month since my last post. Sorry but I've been busy with CHA samples for Ranger and Tim Holtz. 

It all starts with an email. Are you available to make samples? YES, YES and YES! Next the packages start to arrive with new product! It's so exciting, but you can't share it with anyone because you are sworn to secrecy. So, you do a little happy dance to yourself and get to work. LOL 

One of the first packages were these beauties. If you liked Distress Markers before you will LOVE the new colors. So bright! So lovely! 

One night I just in front of the TV just coloring, I definitely wasn't watching any TV.  I was just coloring.

Tim's blueprint stamps from Stampers Anonymous are perfect for coloring! 

The next morning it was time to make some cards with the colored pieces. 

I had so much fun coloring.

Love this Stocking stamp. You could even add your name to the top of the stocking. 

For this sample I colored the stamp with the Distress Markers. The new colors are so beautiful don't you think?

 This was the scene of my work area for the past couple months. I don't know what it is, but I never have any space to work and I don't think a bigger work area is the answer. I think it's just me. 

Soon after the product arrives I had a stack of samples to send off for inspiration to others. I look forward to making samples every year. 

The samples make it to CHA and end up on this table for sorting. Tim and Paula decide which booth they will be displayed in. 

 Then the samples are put onto display boards before the show opens. I'm always amazed how things come together in such a short amount of time. 

 The show opens! Here is Tim showing off the NEW Distress Glitter! 

Look at the crowd! Everyone is so excited! 

Thank you Tim, Paula and Ranger for letting me be part of the journey! 
I loved being a part of it!
