Winter CHA 2013
I met up with Jinger and Kristy Day along with a few of my other fellow designers on the team. I drooled over the new collections coming out and hung out in the booth for a while. So Fun!
Jinger has two new collections coming out called Sweet Tarts and Sport That. She was also debuting an All Occasion Card Kit and a Craft Armoire.
The Sweet Tart collection is chocked full of gingham, stripes, butterflies, cherries, glittered stickers, chipboard and washi tape. Yes- Washi Tape! The Sport That collection (which I don’t have an official photo of yet) will be perfect for any sport theme craft project. It even includes foil tags, chipboard and coordinating washi tape.
Jinger Craft Armoire is awesome! It really is a great idea and will retail for about $250 dollars. Expect to see it on HSN in May! This armoire is way better than anything you’d find at IKEA.
Jen Evans is an amazing designer. She designs for Heidi Swapp but she runs the Craft Warehouse design team. I did a guest designer post for the Craft Warehouse back in December. It was neat to be able to meet up with Jen after all our emails back and forth.
So there it is! A glimpse of my whirlwind CHA experience. If I had to pick one thing I saw trending it would be doilies. Not like you’re grandma’s doily placemats… pretty things made out of doilies.
I have many more photos that I could of shared but I think I’ve exceeded the photo overload threshold for a blog post. Plus, you’d have to see more of my grins posted…Yikes!
I did miss some booths like Martha and Mod Podge only because my time management skills went AWOL with all my chatting. I really need to work on that next time. I didn’t even do a single make-n-take…geez!
Anyways, hubby took the kiddos to Disney California Adventure Park for the day so the whole fam was happy, happy all the way around.
