Back home from CHA!
Whew....what a week! There was so much to see and so many of my favorite girls to reconnect with that I am definitely feeling the after effects of a very busy week.
First of all.....I had a fabulous time teaching two wonderful certification classes at CHA! We had a blast learning the techniques and playing with color. Thank you to all whom have e-mailed me personally and told me how much you enjoyed it....HUGE warm fuzzies all around!
What does 2010 bring? After speaking to stores at CHA I have created a TENTATIVE schedule. Applications for these events will not go out until 60 days prior to the event but I wanted to give you an idea on my schedule.
If you are a store and see me coming to your area please feel free to contact me via e-mail if you are interested in some consumer classes in your shop.
Here is my schedule:
Calgary, Alberta (April 11th)
Anchorage,Alaska (May 23rd)
Vancouver, BC (May 30th)
Boise, Idaho (June 13th)
Seattle, Washington (June 27th)
July or August
Prince George, BC
Now if you don't see your area listed and you are in the Pacific Northwest area and Western Canada...please let me know if you think there would be high demand for this class where you live. I wouldn't want to miss anyone!
What did I see at CHA? A LOT! It warmed my lil' heart to see so much fabric! Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Cosmo Cricket had fabulous fabric! I decided to show you this card today because it is all about the fabric. The little flowers I created with my spellbinder dies and the little dress too! People were just swooning over these sweet little pure innocence girls from My Favorite Things. This one is called "Apple for you".I had fun coloring some of the new images while demoing in the copic booth.
I stamped this little girl on my kraft paper and also on my Neenah white card stock. I colored everything but her dress with my copics and then cut her out and laid her overtop of the stamped image on my kraft. I ran a strip of Michael Miller fabric through my creatopia machine with the fabric adhesive first and then stamped the dress and cut out the flowers with my dies. The beautiful tree is felt from Prima...yummm...they had some awesome stuff at the show!
Ok, I'm off to play catch up on family life after being gone a week. My daughter is having a birthday party today and I need to make a cake! Have a great day!
