Prima Flowers - well we should say what's left of them! We had a bit of a FLOWER FRENZY this weekend at our all day crop - we decided to pull the box of Primas out of the back room and surprise the ladies...well they surprised us and this is what happened!
And this is what's left!!!
The GOOD news is there are more Prima's on the way!
Okay, okay, we realize we're a tad bit tardy here posting about the joys of CHA (still playing catch up here, ladies!) but have we got some eye candy for you.
It would be impossible to choose just ONE favorite thing from this mega shopping trip otherwise known as CHA (plus we realize now that we don't even have photos from all of the companies we ordered from), so we invite you to enjoy a stroll with us through CHA...
Feeling Fancy? Here's a taste of their new Kraft Kuts line:
Webster's Pages has beautiful new lines with some deeper colors along with loads of beautiful new trims. (Yes, we ordered lots of paper and lots of trim - you'll love it all!)
New magazines in da' house (almost)! Tired of the usual CK fare? Yep, us too, so, coming soon to your favorite store (Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, of course) are magazines and specialty issues from Stampington / Somerset! You are going to be so inspired by the beautiful projects in these magazines! Just don't let Karen fool you if she calls them Sunset. :)
Next up is pretty, pretty Prima. Besides their beautiful flowers, they have flocked transparencies and some papers that we can't wait to surprise you with. :)
We have pictures of samples made by our very own Christie Bryant for the Graphic 45 booth! Beautiful as always Christie and G45 too!! (Christie's samples are the red and blue book on the 3rd shelf, and the banner in the next picture.) Rachiel got to check out ALL of their paper lines in person - how do you ever pick a favorite?
Teresa Collins makes the most amazing mini book samples and you can tell that we were all inspired by her after CHA last winter (just take a look back at some of the cool classes you took here over the last year). Teresa has done it again with her new paper lines, transparencies, stamps and accessories - you're going to love it!
Don't you love the work of this artist, Wendy Vecchi? We will be carrying some of her Studio 490 stamps from Stamper's Anonymous. Look at the gorgeous flowers she made using her Studio 490 stamps, Ranger inks and the new Tim Holtz Grunge Paper:
Another reason we love CHA is that the displays can be so inspiring. What do you think of this 7 gypsies chandelier???
We did some serious damage at the Sassafras Lass booth...check out a sampling of their new Vintage Yummy line! Yummy, isn't it?
And talk about cool displays! Sassafras Lass has these great display windows around the outside of their booth with oversized ideas from their new lines. Check out the window and then the close up of the flower. What's that there? Oh yeah, they used the inside of a padded bubble envelope - so great!
We hope you enjoyed your stroll through CHA - be on the lookout for tons of new stuff rolling in over the next couple of months. :) (There's so much we haven't even mentioned yet like Cosmo Cricket, Melissa Frances, Jenni Bowlin, Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, Maya Road, BasicGrey, K&Company, Making Memories, imaginice, Best Creations, Graphic 45, Art Glitter, Dream Street, paper mache for projects and much, much more!)
Also, keep your eyes peeled because we'll be updating our calendar and sending a newsletter in the next couple of days.
And - last but not least: To tide you over until the new stuff starts rolling in, we want you to know we hauled three huge bags of goodies (2 extra suitcases!) all the way back from SoCal - so we're freshly stocked on new ribbons, trims and flowers!
