We had a chance to meet Jenny & Aaron at CHA in January, we instantly fell in love with their NEW book Mixed Media Masterpieces and paper collection The Sweet Life! We knew this was the perfect theme for National Scrapbook Day (thank you Jenny and Aaron for the inspiration)! We had a super fun weekend and had SO much fun playing with all of new paper and embellishments.
Yummy treats to start our amazing weekend!
Thank you for joing us for two days of scrapping, fun and laughs! It's always great to see all of the projects that are created over the weekend and we have to say you ladies got a lot of projects done this weekend!
What can we say, Day 2 of CHA was another huge success! Our bags are stuffed with catalogs and the memory card in the camera is filling up, but we are finding TONS of new products and designs that you're going to love from companies like Crate Paper, Melissa Frances, FarmHouse Paper Company, Jenni Bowlin, Prima, and more.
Here are a few more sneak peek photos and samples for you. And be sure to check the CHA Winter 2013 album on our Facebook page for even more photos!

We are so excited about the NEW Melissa Frances paper and embellishments. Kitschy Kitchen is for the domesticated woman who not only cooks, but is CREATIVE too! We've have 12x12 paper pads, tags and recipe cards in two styles. This is why we heart Melissa Frances.
Beautiful antique bottles using vintage gems, ribbon, jewels and glitter. Deb has an eye for little treasures and was kind enough to share her personal collection with the ladies to design their own bottles. We saw some beautiful creations! If you weren't able to make it - we have a few kits left over and will be selling some of the sample bottles. (We saw these beautiful bottles in Somerset LIFE and had to try them for the gift workshop!)
Another project Deb made was a vintage inspired wall hanging (designed by Linda Albrecht for Melissa Frances). She used a Melissa Frances bingo card and an old fashioned picture but you can add your own photo to personalize it!
We are excited to be stocked up on Melissa Francis papers and embellishments - we love when our shelves are filled to the brim! Also in are Vintage Colonial Houses, Designer Stickers and more boy and girl Flashcards.
We are so remiss and want to make up for it, so here goes...
Back in September - September 14 to be exact - we were lucky enough to be featured on the Melissa Frances blog! While blog hopping, they found our store and liked our display of their beautiful Attic Treasures line and asked if they could post some of our pictures on their blog. (Yes, yes, yes!!!) Seriously, their Attic Treasures line looks like it was made for our store - just check out their darling Bingo card books, beautiful vintage look papers, mica flakes, chipboard alphabets, boy and girl chipboard flashcards, cutest shaped baby albums and Attic Treasures mini albums (both of these albums have the cutest multi shaped pages!) and more.
Thank you Melissa Frances - we are honored to have been featured on your beautiful blog! We look forward to seeing you at Scrapbook Expo in Sacramento on October 16th and if you have a little extra time, stop in and say hi - Paradise is less than an hour and a half away!
