There is so much to take in at CHA; Gorgeous booths decorated to the nines and craft celebrities and friends walking around on the floor.Â It seems almost impossible to see everything.Â I walked up and down certain aisles dozens of times, but each time I would see something new and exciting.Â It was also amazing to have the opportunity to meet people that I have made connections with on twitter.Â Overall, it was a fantastic show and here are some of my favorite photos and moments of the three days I was there!
Â The Graphic 45 booth was jam packed with goodies everywhere.Â It was a beautiful and interesting booth I could have spent hours in.
The Sizzix booth was decorated in traditional Tim Holtz grungy goodness. I am so excited for these new dies to come out.Â I am in love with each and every one of them.
Here is the incredibly creative May Flaum right before a book signing.Â I couldn’t wait to meet May after exchanging tweets, and she is just as sweet in person as she seems in her books and articles.
Here is a whole wall of Vintaj jewelry goodness.
Here’s another crafty superstar, Suze Weinberg at the Vintaj make and take using their new metal pieces and Ranger patinas.
Here is a display over at the Heidi Swapp booth.Â I am SO excited for her new line.
Here are fellow craft test dummies, Haley from the Zen of Making and Vicki O’Dell, who is also known as the Creative Goddess. Love these ladies!
I loved this display of lolly flowers in the shape of a heart and then dusted with Therm-o-Webs brand new product, Glitter Dust.Â
I loved these cupcakes from Quilled Creations. Can you believe every single part of these are quilled? From the cupcake wrappers to the cherry on top!
I fell in love with these shelves of gorgeous ruffly trims from Maya Road.Â It makes me think of fabric candy!Â Yum!
I was also totally digging on this metal dress form that the Maya Road gals decorated. I wanted to pick it up and run as fast as I could back to my hotel room with this!
Here’s a display wall from GCD studios featuring their new, and my personal favorite, line of theirs “Oh Happy Day,” designed by the fabulous Heidi Sonboul.
The DCWV (Die Cuts with a View) booth was absolutely stunning.Â They took home the award for the best booth at CHA as well.Â Trees dripping with crystals and paper flowers, butterflies and leaves.Â They even had a glittering peacock made out of, yup you guessed it, paper.Â It was jaw dropping!
Oh my gosh, it’s Donna Martin, ya’ll!!!Â Do you think she and David are still together living in the 90210 zip code?Â Just kidding! It’s Tori Spelling debuting her new jewelry line with Darice Crafts.
Here is a gorgeous booth from Canvas Corp, Canvas Home Basics.Â There was so much to see here, I wanted to sit down and have tea in this booth and just look around at all of the canvas goodness.
Here is another gorgeous display by Deco Arts showcasing their new Gloss enamel paints.Â I looked at these paints and plates up close and they are absolutely amazing.
Here’s an adorable paper airplane mobile by 7Gypsies.Â I think I’m going to need to make one of these just for fun.
And last but not least, here is mama dummy Jenny giving fellow superstar dummy Haley a ride on her new rolling cart.Â After a full day of walking on the floor we all tend to get a little delirious and silly!Â Ok, we’re always silly!Â I love these ladies!
