It is midnight in Chicago and I just somehow lost the blog post I spent an hour writing :-( However I promised an update so never let it be said that I don't follow through!!

This line from SEI is a little quirky...i love the European style can'tsee it in the photo but there is lots of shimmer too

Vintage Xmas is everywhere....I particularly like Websters

My favourite non xmas line is Restoration by Crate Paper

Spellbinders have huge mega dies!!

Also talking of Spellbinders I have found a great company that does stamps to match Spellbinder dies

The masters of the vintage look Graphic 45 have the most amazing stand...and papers

And I still can't get enough Donna Downey!

Last day tomorrow...and still plenty more to see and buy!

Well here we are at CHA Summer in Chicago! The show is definity bigger than Summer last year and I am not sure how I am going to get through all the stands! I have popped some photos below of some of my favourite things so far.

Fancy ribbons are really popular. Here are some from Maya Rd

And Tim Holtz. These actually only come in white. All the others have been coloured with distress ink re-inkers!!!

Tomorrow I will also show you some new ones from Prima too

Cosmo Cricket has some really cute lines... here are some samples using Togetherness

I could devote several posts to Prima alone...there is just so much new stuff!!
They have more new canvas items especially from Donna Downey

Plenty of different butterflies

Plus a new range of scrapbooking jewelery. You can use these on pages or turn them into something to wear.

Shaddow Boxes are springing up everywhere! This is a mini one from Maya Rd which I think will make a great xmas gift.

The compartments are by Tim Holtz and they can be completely customisable. you can shift everythign around to suit you!!

There is lots to love at Hero Arts

Not to mention Penny Black!!

That is just the tip of the iceberg...but I hope it gives you all some idea of what great new products we will have coming soon. if you see something you like...leave a comment and let us know and you might just win a prize!!!!

Will be back tomorrow with more!!
