Wow CHA is great

The last day we went to Newport Beach. We cannot be that close to the beach without a visit.

Even More CHA Tidbits

This is the back side of the Convention Center sign we saw every day on our walk. Pretty clever to make it "A" shaped.

I was so excited to have my picture taken with Cricut. It is so much fun!

Tune in next week for more excitement.

More CHA Tidbits

This was our walk every morning. Just awesome. Loved the view. It is so different then home and I really like that. It was also great weather for a morning walk.

The second day we took a class from Little Yellow Bicycle. First we did a layout out and a card.

Little accordion book on the page...
This is a 5x5 card with the same bow technique as the layout page.
This is the first page from a "Medley Album Kit" we did using my favorite "Saturdays" paper collection. The smaller blue tag is page 1. There are two white daisies layered with a blue lollie on top. Then some trendy stick pins stuck in there. This is the last page of the album. It is an envelope with an insert. We stuck a couple of tags on there, a sticker, a dark blue lollie and some more stick pins.
We will have this album on display at the Spring Retreat.

Tune in next week for more excitement.

CHA Tidbits

Our first time to attend CHA in Anahiem was amazing. The area of Anahiem was very nice.

The first night we took a class on heat embossing. The reason we took it was to use the Basically Bare album. Awesome!
This is all the product we received for the class: a heat gun, 6 embossing powders (EP), a case to put them in, 3 ink pads, 3 adhesives, glimmer mist, 2 stamp sets, plus the paper and album for the project itself... and more.

This is the 6 pack case we received in class. We will have the 12 pack case for sale at the Spring retreat.

This is page one of the album we made. The dress form is a corrugated die cut piece. We embossed the bodice and the stand. We adhered paper for the skirt then tied toile around the waist. The page itself has an opening in the middle. We used an embossing pen around the edge and heat embossed copper on it.
This is the second page. We heat embossed one of their stamp desgins. It shows through the cover. We cut the clock out of the patterned paper and edged it with the embossing pen and copper EP.

This is one of the pages inside. We inked a piece of bubble wrap with versamark and stamped it on the paper then heat embossed it.
The heart is corrugated. We versamarked the whole piece then sprinkled olive EP on it then copper EP. After heat embossing it, I added more olive EP.
We will demo heat embossing at the Spring Retreat and will have some embossing powders for sell. You will want the embossing pen!

Tune in next week for more excitement.
