CHA 2015 - continued

Bella Blvd's booth was as beautiful as ever, plus they had a generous make-n-take that showcased their new Invisibles. The Invisibles have a thin plastic placemat weight. You could cut them with a trimmer, but you wouldn't be able to die cut them. They all have a decorative edge and I asked Stephanie why the deco edge instead of a straight edge. She said she designed them to be as versatile as possible; with their weight and decorative edge, they could be used standalone or on top of 12x12 paper. The Clear Cuts come in the fun dot pattern, plus there are a couple in every collection.

I liked the ColorWays embellishments. I think they are versatile enough for traditional and pocket scrapbooking, plus some fun cardmaking.
 More stamping and die goodness...

Darling make-and-take from Echo Park. See, I told you everyone was making their own dies.

Some new super strong adhesive. You can never have too much adhesive. :)

 I loved these metal boards and magnets by Roeda. Love, love, love!

It wasn't all scrapbook and paper crafts. There was yummy felt and yarn (now that I'm branching into knitting, I have a new addiction), plus lots of crystals and beads.

Hope you enjoyed the show too!

Oooh! I remember the year I got to go to HIA... it was so fun just walking around and looking at everything. (I described it as "bright as Christmas.") Fabulous.
