i lugged my camera around for 4 days and can you believe i only took 2 pictures?
that goes against all that is scrapbooking!
the first picture was of rebekka ericksons fabulous booth and new product
surprise, surprise, the second was of arccivo. it is of course my personal favorite must have at the show (might be because i am a part of the booth...LOL?). i got to see the yummy new color palette and demo it throughout the course of the show. so many of you stopped by for a real life demo and the arrcivo was met with such a huge response from the retailers...thank you, the company was extremely happy with your enthusiasm about their new product. pam, mary, deborah you would have been proud!
there was a lot of other cool new items and paper lines i simply loved.
zutter - totally a tool gal, i was really excited about this new product. no more going to staples to bind through chipboard the "bind it all", is a binding machine that punches holes through credit card material, chipboard, cd's and it is flippin portable! they also have this amazing paper cutting machine called "dreamkuts" that you simply slide the paper in and cuts it in half. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
it is sitting right here next to me keeping me company as i write!
maya road - yes, it may be blatantly obvious that i have a passion for all that is chipboard, but walking into the maya road booth i was having heart palpitations...I WANT IT ALL!! the cutest new chipboard albums...the arrow, the purses, the calendar flip book, the blossom trim, the stamps for the chipboard, the binders, oh the binders!!! such a happy place!
crate paper - the color palettes on their new paper lines are to die for. normally i would have to say i am not a purple person, but coupled with green i think i am in love. love the samantha, baby bee, twirl, carnival, & birdie lines. i know some of these were released in the fall, but i am just finding them NOW!!
imagination project - their new line of office supplied project essentials and totally dated are so fabulous. i cannot wait for this to start shipping. it is like every office supply store junkies dream come true and the fact that they have made many of the designs in coasters is so exciting...do you feel the mini books coming??? great papers great designs. again with the purple and green, Cloe's closet launched a new paper line and emily adams debuted her new line circus rose with a hip and playful girlfriends line!
quickutz - oh my, oh my!!! again i need it all. i am getting a revolution, i need it! i absolutely love the flourish dies and the punctuation. i got the diesel font and the uptown girl font while i was there and the black magpie storage system with the brown (sandstone) tins are on their way!
7 gypsies - well that is a no brainer, i love anything from this company. however, the new square and oval stamps are a must have as well as lots of paper lines i had missed in earlier releases. i also didn't realize i could get the brown stamper refill for the stamps, so i am all over that!!
heidi swapp - simply everything she does is a treat! cool clock overlays, enormous photo corners, ghost wings, stamp corners are all among my favorites!!
jenni bowlin - ok she did not have a booth there, nor was she selling product, but that girl has some product that will make your head spin...be on the look out for her in the next few months. she taught a class at a LSS that my roommate Ikuko (HI IKUKO!!!) took and the project she returned with was amazing!!
basicgrey - really this company never does design wrong in my book. everything they do is always in the forefront of trend.
American Crafts - finally a company made a classic brown as well as a green rub on alphabet! THANK YOU!!! love their new rub on transfers as well!!
