More CHA pictures!

I had SUCH a great time walking around to see the new products!!!

Here are some of my favorites and there are a few that I haven't taken pictures of that I loved as well!... You may or may not see some of these products coming up in kits from Artful Delight! I was doing some scoping out to be sure and loved these and a bunch more! 

Twig from Little Yellow Bicycle! 

Crate Paper: Portrait - This is such a great line. It uses some of the great and "in" colors and stuck them all in the same set with some great texture! 

I caught up with Lydia from the Imaginisce DT in the Core'dinations booth! Ellen was there too (why didn't we take a picture?) I had a great time hanging out with you oh-so-talented ladies for a few minutes!!! 

This was a couple that came into the Imaginisce make and take booth on Sunday. They were from Wyoming and so nice! This gentleman blinged his make and take with so many pink hot rocks! AND he really wanted to get the gem in the center of his roly rosie so he pulled out his utility knife, balanced the gem on the end, and had me push it off of the end of the knife into the middle of the flower perfectly. Now that is dedication! He rocked that i-rock!

There is SO much more, but it is all on video - like an hour of video that I need to edit down! 

I hope you are all having a fabulous day!!! 

Make sure you catch My Pink Stamper live on UStream at 8:00pm Pacific Standard Time! We were all going to be here in the condo together, but unfortunately there is a huge storm coming and Robyn wanted to beat it and fly home early, so we will not all be together tonight but rest assured, we had SUCH a great time together!!!

CHA update!

This is going to have a LOT of pictures!!!

Last night, we lost our internet connection so I couldn't update! Thanks for your patience!!!

Presenting: Cricut Expression 2.0. For all of the fabulous details, see Robyn and Tammy's blogs: two of the Hello Thursday girls! If you have any questions, just ask! :) Also, Tammy has some great information on the Cricut Craft room and the best part is...... it's totally free!!! 

Robyn and Karlee posing with the cute Cricut! 

One of the Provo Craft make and takes:

Back side of the stage at the Provo Craft Booth:

Echo Park Paper with Madison on the left and Jody on the right! Love these guys and their fabulous paper!!! 

Want2Scrap was a sponsor of Passionately Artistic when I was on the Design Team so I was so excited to see them in the New Exhibitor's area!

This red and silver card was one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen up close:
 The card was made by this lovely lady so I wanted to give her credit and just took a picture of her business card! So here's to you, Dana wherever you were! 

Okay, so somehow I missed getting a picture with Jenny Suchin in the photo from Wee Memories, but that's why I took this picture! haha. But she was at the Your Next Stamp booth and it was SO great to finally meet her! 

 The Imaginisce booth!!!! YAYAY!!! 

 Pink Paislee:

 I was SO excited to meet up with Monique Griffith and Wendy Lawrence! Yay for Northern California girls! :) These ladies are SO super sweet and saved me from eating lunch alone - plus, I love them.

 Teresa Collins in her booth and me in my Imaginisce gear! :)

 Glue Arts Glue Girls!!!!! I love Glue Arts and I was so excited to meet these talented ladies! I even found out Emily (the one on the left) lives close to me and I hope we can get together for some crafty time sometimes! 

I just wanted to stop and stay in Anna Griffin.... It was SO relaxing. 

Just a shot of one of the cross-walkways.

KC from My Mind's Eye! He is SUCH a sweetheart. He is the distributer for my sponsor Pumpkin Spice. SO this one is for you, Denine! :) 

Okay, I have to go to bed! I have a lot more pictures to share and some fun video! I am going to CHA and then flying home tomorrow evening so it might be a little late when I upload them! But I will get them to you and it will take me a bit to edit the video footage! :) I am SO thankful for all of your encouraging comments and hope you are enjoying my journey!

Business cards and the Circle Crop!


So, we were not permitted any cameras nor cell phones in the Circle crop so I don't have any pictures of the event, but I did snap this one of the room after it was all over so that you could see where we were all day. :) I had SUCH a great time and loved getting to know such wonderful ladies. 

I helped with the make and take which involved mod podge and glitter - very messy - and I was just a volunteer! I hope all of you whom I helped with the make and take liked their project! I learned a lot as I helped more people with it. The first couple were a little dodgy, but after that, it was great! 

We were SO blessed that Jinger Adams stopped by! Do you see her matching hat, jacket, and heels! So cute! She really is the sweetest!

Robyn and Karlee came in today and we are having SO much fun! We are laughing all too much. :) 

I am going to bed, but I wanted to share with you the business cards that I made for tomorrow!

Echo Park: A Walk in the Park™
hot rock crystal compacts

Graphic 45 from Artful Delight's February Kit

Recipe: My Mind's Eye: Fine and Dandy
hot rock compacts

Back of the card: I smudged out my cell phone number for privacy reasons:

Okay, SO sorry not to link up the products tonight, but it's 12:45am and I have got to get to sleep! :) 

I'll be taking tons of photos and video taping tomorrow at CHA and I'll be in the Make and Take booth from 2-6! 

I hope you all have a FABulous day and are enjoying these little updates! Thank you so much for the encouragement!

Greetings From CHA!!!

I am SO excited to be here in LA and sharing my experiences with all of you! I have already started a video that I'll have to post after there is more on it! :)

I arrived yesterday afternoon came straight to the condo, and am hanging out with some fabulous ladies! Tammy Skinner (Creative Critters Cricut Club and Creative Critters Imaginations) , Myrel, and Angela are all wonderful ladies and we had a wonderful time at the Brazillian steakhouse! Now, if you want a horribly tragic, but drama-filled review of yesterday's um... craziness, then pop on over to Tammy's blog and give her some virtual hugs!  - A new post will be up in a few minutes! :) (Give some virtual hugs to Myrel too even though she doesn't have a blog.) - Robyn and Karlee arrive this morning so we'll have to take a new "group picture" later! :) 

This morning I am on my way to the Cricut Circle meet-up and I am thrilled! I volunteered to help with the make and take - I don't even know what it is - but I am excited to meet a bunch of Circlets! 

There will be no cameras allowed, but I am going to try to take some pictures with ladies there outside of the room so you can see how Cricut-crazy we all are. And if you're coming, I'll be in my Imaginisce apron and will be happy to share any tips or information I have with you about their products! 

Okay, so here's a little project for you that didn't photograph very well. In the Circle we have to make 3x3 old fashioned calling cards to bring to share our information. Of course I designed a shaped 3x3 card! 

Cartridge: Tie the Knot™ (present shape)
 I blemished out (not a word, but I'm making it up!) my Circle number for privacy reasons. 

If you're at CHA, stop by booths 1770 and 1767. The Imaginisce DT girls will be there to show you all of the new tools including the Pogo and the I-top 2.0! You can also see the new lines called Berrylicious, Happy Camper, and Little Cutie. And Imaginisce did not want to leave anyone out of CHA who couldn't go, so all of those new products are up on the Imaginisce website already! Just click on the names of the products and I have provided you with the links. Feel free to stay and look around as there are new fabric roly rosies, glittered glue sticks, lots of new i-rock colors and much more too! 

Okay, if there is anything you are dying to see, let me know and based on if they allow me take pictures/video it, I will be glad to do that for you! :)
