CHA Baby!

Summer 2010 was my first time attending the Craft and Hobby Show. I work in the scrapbook industry and was able to get a pass to the show. I was so overwhelmed by all there was to see that at times I forgot to take pictures! Next time, I will try to calm myself and take more pictures. Who can focus when the House of Three is conducting make and takes! Or when Suede is posing for pictures at the ecraft booth?!?

May Arts Ribbon - Buttons??? How cool!

American Crafts - who doesn't love premade spirals?

Cabochons were a huge trend all over the show.

Hanging Garland at the Dear Lizzy area. It was beautiful.

Little Yellow Bicycle Laser Cut Borders

More amazing cabochons from Making Memories

Really cute acrylic ribbon sliders

I'm not usually a Melissa Francis fan, but these were really pretty.

KI Memories. I will be buying these letters no doubt.

Great basic/pattern cardstock. Love.

And borders to match!

The only pic I took at the Jillibean booth and I'm on the team!!!
I was way too busy looking and talking! (don't tell Jill!)

The EK booth was a little harder to snap photos in. Martha's holiday punches are amazing. Trish, start saving! Your gonna want them all!

Chipboard keepsake box from Maya Road. These were another big trend at the show.

Webster's Pages had amazing buttons and cabochons. I really liked their new papers and ribbons too.

Websters Flower Ribbon

Tim Holtz Buttons. Simply cool.

Thanks for letting me share! Stop over to my facebook page to see photos of Jing-Jing and I meeting some of our scrapbook heroes!
