  3. I am so excited about the new Tim Holtz products from Ranger and Sizzix. But equally excited about all the new stamps and dies from so many other companies. I saw so many that I would love to have. Oh my goodness- the anticipation of it becoming available for purchase is exhausting! I will be keeping a close watch on your website to see when I can get my hands on these goodies!

I SO hope that one day I will be able to go to CHA as well. *fingers crossed* All of th eproducts shown in the video are ah-ma-zing, but the one that *REALLY* caught my eyes were Heidi Swapp’s prodicts and TH’s products – yay for the new distress inks!!! :D

  8. Really excited to see the hero arts ombré inks and ranger’s wonderful new colors of the month distress inks, just magical!!!

  9. OMG!!!! Where do I begin? Can I come with you next year? The glow in the dark hemp cord from Hemptique, Tim’s stencils, Impression Obsession stamps, the deco foil, all so fabulous. I can’t wait for them to come on the market and to get my hands on these products. TFS!

  10. Too much goodness in one spot makes me swoon! It was so fun to see my favorite companies and products in one video…I spotted some glow in the dark hemp cord, Maya Road vintage clips and love love love enamel dots. By the way, what was the name of the first song you used on the video?…beautiful!

  11. OMG! So many goodies! I can’t wait to see more of all the new stencils and I know I’ve got to have the ombre ink pads!! Thanks for the 10 minute tour!!

  12. Wow! Sooo many new goodies to play with. Loved those gorgeous Penny Black stamps & dies, all those awesome papers & new Tim Holtz inks! Too many “likes” to list but I am excited & ready for all these wonderful things to hit the store.

  13. That deco foil has my interest for sure. But so many nice things to see. Ombre inkpads..and little meow stamps by docrafts…and all the lawn fawn stamps and dies….lovely papers of graphic 45…

  14. I am very excited to see all the new products especially all the Tim Holtz stencils and new distress colors.

  15. I am loving the Cracked Pistachio distress and the Penny Black products look divine! Thankyou for the fabulous look around the booths at CHA!

  16. Every time a new company’s offerings showed up, I wanted their product! But the one that keeps coming back to me is impression obsession’s paint brush stroke wood-mounted stamps at 6:52. I love those!

    The music you used in the video was so relaxing. I played the video a few times, just to listen to it.

  17. Wow!! So many new great items- eye candy galore!! Thanks for the peek! Some of my favs- Teresa Collins, Tim’s new Cracked Pistachio, Hero Arts hombre stamp pads, and so many new dies!!!!

  18. There was so much that I love – the TH/Core’dinations metallic/kraft core paper, the new Penny Black stamps, all of the new Sizzix, the Crafter’s Companion stencils – and my list could go on and on!

  19. Oh. My. Goodness. Some Odd Girl stamps, is that anew? Loved it! The Avery Elle wall of stamps and dies, swoon, and the stencils from Tim, double swoon. The gorgeous tapes from Little B, and the new Maggie Holmes collection… The new Faber Castel gelatos, just heavenly. So many things!!

  20. OMG, how could any craft lover pick one thing!! All the new product looks amazing, but I guess I am most excited about the new Tim Holtz distress colors!!!

  21. Loved viewing all the neat things– THANK YOU!
    Also have a question… do people get to purchase the items right there or do they have to be ordered? Is the CHA only for business to come and see?

  22. I have watched this video twice now and I am still amazed to the variety in this compared to other sites. I wish you had done a series so we could get a good look instead of just a glimpse. I am especially wanting to find out the manufacturer of the water colour pencils, as I couldn’t make it out in the video. Also it looked like thermoweb had a machine similar to the MINC, in the display of their foils – but I can’t see it on their website. Do you know if they are bringing one out? Apparently the Heidi Swapp one won’t have an adapted version for other power sources such as here in Australia.

  23. Fantastic products… they have all left me inspired and willing to get the products that were showcased. I LOVE/LOVE/LOVE stamps and paper! I really loved the tour and wishing I could have been there too!

  24. WOW !!! Its a amazing CHA – so many to look at and I wish I could go over from Australia !!! We do have the Paperific Expo but, not as big as in USA.
