We are back and exhausted from our time in California at CHA. Such a great time, lots of awesome new things on the horizon.
So, during our trip we learned that the fantastic project pictured in our last post will not be able to happen for our February weekend. The paper line Honey I'm Home by Bella Boulevard is totally out of stock! They couldn't even find 50 little sheets of each pattern for some very sweet chicks in Seattle. Since it was so popular they are probably going to reprint the entire line so we decided to save that project-probably for May.
So the great thing about learning this while you are at a trade show is to look around and figure out what to do instead. Oh, you ladies who are coming in February are in for a treat.
That treat is the new new new Lush line by My Minds Eye. This paper will barely be on the shelves at your local scrapbook store when we have our event, we are so lucky to be able to use it for February. The album is a gorgoeus 8x8 cream colored chipboard album with flocked printing on the front and back cover, the papers we have chosen are Blue (think the color of a gift box from Tiffany) and Chocolate Brown-did I mention that some of the papers are flocked, mmmmm. The embellishments are all color coordinated, ribbon, brads, jewels, and two different kinds of colored chipboard letters! We have photos of this album coming soon. Kathy is busily working away adding some lovely techniques for paper flowers that she learned at the show. Here are a few photos of the paper lines-this is one that you really have to see in person to appreciate just how gorgeous they are.
Since we are using My Minds Eye for our 8x8 album we decided to change it up a bit on another of our projects. We discovered another company we love, Jillibean Soup. Their papers and journaling spots are just so cute. (hmmm, hint hint you might even see some of those journaling spots in your goodie bags February ladies! ) We chose their line Minestrone for one of our mini classes as a brag book. You are going to love this fast and easy class with a great little 6x6 album and album wrap. I am working on this project this week and will have some photos up then.
We also ordered a brand new line from Making Memories-Flutter. So cute. We are using this for our get started project- a Happy Spring Banner.
I promise to put up some new photos this week as our projects get finished up!
