Hello from Chicago! What a day we had today. We got through more booths today and saw more that we did yesterday. We still have a few more booths we want to cover tomorrow, in particular Kaisercraft. We are hearing great things about this company and need to see what the buzz is.

I promised you photos yesterday, and I think I’ll start with product that I know I can’t live without and what I was most impressed with. We might as well start with Ranger, since that is where I spent most the day on Friday.

Tim Holtz has come out with many new products that are a must have. Let’s start with the new Distress Crackle in white and metallics. There are also new Distress Stickles which are thicker than the others.

You also have to love the new masks and Grunge Board.

Here’s a close up of the new nature element grunge.

AND check out these new oval and tag shaped fragments!


I’ve really taken with this new Studio line by Claudine Hellmuth. There are artist grade acrylic paints and the most exciting thing for me is a sticky back canvas. I ran a sample of the canvas down to the Spellbinders booth to see if the Wizard would cut it. WOO HOO, with a little shimming and run twice through the Wizard — IT WORKED!

I’ve admited Wendy Vecchi’s designs since I met her at CHA in February. Well guess what, she has a new line of stamps with Stampers Anonymous that work with the Grunge and the flowers she has made so popular.

Since this post is getting rather long with photos, I’m going to move on to a new one – the people.
