Long post...get your coffee.
I'm doing my Fresh Squeezed Stamps full reveal today...it's the sneak that I posted yesterday:
I'm super lovin' the kraft/white combo...
It really makes the image/sentiment shine, dontcha think?
I'm super thrilled that I was able to join up with everybody at CHA this year! I feel very fortunate to have been able to go...it's a feast for the eyes because of all the fab new products that you get to see but really, for me and probably for every other girl, it's a mini reunion of bloggers.
This is how I travel...
I know...no nearby Starbucks where my gate was AND I'm thinking of switching to McDreamy Tully's...LOL
I like to sit in the back of the plane so I can board earlier and essentially climb on the seat so I can hoist my carry-on luggage in the upper compartment...LOL
I guess I should have put these in some sort of order but I didn't....No product pics...leaving that to the professionals...
Amy Tan...remember my Ready, Set, Go cards?
Okay, Susan Opel...this girl rocks...I loved chatting with her.
Kelly....isn't she thee cutest?
Cali Ivy drove us out to Irvine for Vietnamese Food and Asian Pastries...delish.
Evelin Tee...cutest Momma-to-be!
I totally hijacked this picture from Vera...She is so sweet! I got to hang out with the fabulous Annette during the show!
Here's another hijacked pic...this one is of me and Ivy at the Lawn Fawn Make 'n Take...Oh yes, I did make something with their SWEET new mason jar stamp!
Annette Allen...this girl is a charm, she was constantly cracking me up!
...another hijacked pic....
We're with the super sweet Jeni Allen...yahooo for another Washingtonian girl!
Love the fun angle on this picture that Teri Anderson took of me and super cute Ashley Harris!
Everybody was sooooo nice....seriously. This paper crafting community is THEE best. I'm really proud to be a part of it!!!
I was able to put together a small CHA goodie bag...want a chance to win? Link up AND leave me a comment about what you love about the paper crafting community!
Love that card, too! The white stamping on Kraft is one of my most fave looks.
BTW, my index for coffee & travel? If the airport has no Tim Horton's, then that airport sux. lol
I'm not even sure what I would pick as my favourite thing about the papercrafting community...probably the fact that it really IS a community. I've met so many people through blogging that I'd cheerfully invite to my home (mess that it is) and been lucky enough to meet one so far. (Barbles!) The gals are always there to cheer me on and cheer me up :)
What I love about the paper crafting community is all the great words of encouragement and support. Also the immense inspiration out there!
Thanks for sharing your CHA pictures.
Am lovin' these stamp sets... such a good mix on the sentiments!
it's so fun to meet all those talented crafters in real life, right? I hope next year I get the chance to do so... :D
I am so happy to be able to finally meet you 'offline' after knowing you 'online' since 2008! It's funny how we were so far apart and now we are in the same country! Life is so unpredictable!
You are thee sweetest, nicest sista I know! :) Hugs!
LOVE the friends and wonderful connections I've made in this crafty community, it just makes the world seem a little smaller, huh?
PS: the white feathers are beautiful on Kraft
P/s: Where's your photo with Julie?
super fun photos girl!!!
I've seen alot of stamping this week with white ink. I'm going to have to get mine out. Love the hearts in your feathers. A simple beautiful card.
Awesome feather card too! Just got a Jenni Bowlin feather stamp and can't wait to try it! I love your white ink!
Thanks for the CHA pics! I almost recognized everyone! Thanks for the giveaway too! What I like most about the crafting community are my FRIENDS! No kidding. I have a hard time IRL with people so starting friendships online is like my inner self being true and not having to worry about all the "things" we girls tend to fret over. Sappy I know, but it's the truth :)
Love that we can share inspiration, a passion and a laugh, and all this in our pyjamas LOL!
I love how creative and friendly the paper crafting community is!
