CHA Super Show

Attended the CHA Super Show with my friend, dianne. The most excitement seemed to be coming from the Cricut Cake booth (Provo Craft).  They have come out with a new machine that cuts fondant for decorating cakes. The blade cartridge is higher to accommodate thicker material being cut and running through. It's a cute RED machine. I believe all Cricut cartridge work with this machine although it comes with a "special" Cake cartridge.
Slice has a new pink machine and they handed out pink aprons to everyone. Cute.
dianne and I got to meet Robyn (My Pink Stamper). We follow her blog and have purchased her CD. She introduced 2 clear mounted stamp sets which we both bought in support of her for all the ideas she has given us. Robyn encouraged us to enter her drawing and lo and behold...I actually won an Easter cartridge. That's a first!
Our favorite Copic pen store (Carpe Diem) was there and I was able to pick up the new 12 colors. Great price for their Copic's at $3.95!
Found a few good deals on paper packs and clear stamps. Bought a couple of ink pads and a few other goodies.
Ran into Lorene Yost (sales rep) who I haven't seen in years. Great to see her. Also saw so many familiar faces of friends from the past.
Cricut Dan had a booth and good prices on cartridges so I was able to get FOREVER YOUNG. One I have been wanting.
Tomorrow is the CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) show for business owners. I am able to attend thanks to my former employer, Joan Bunte of Stamp Your Heart Out. Anxious to see all the new products and latest techniques. I am going with a group of friends. We usually split up but compare notes at lunch time.
It will be a long day but it usually gives me so much inspiration and energy to be creative! Can't wait.


  1. Boo, please come over to my blog for a sweet surprise...

  2. Hello, Holly. Donna directed me to you and your blog...I'm so happy to be back in touch and read about your finds at CHA...I have yet to acquire any Copic pens but have been doing research (Joan sent me lots of literature) and I guess I need just to jump in...a small handful (I wish) to start. Be well, keep blogging. xoxo Marylinn

  3. What a fun day we had! I am enjoying all of my new goodies and had a blast spending the day with you!
