CHA Sneak peeks and more

Well the Winter 2011 Craft and hobby Association show is coming up. There are so many sneak peeks coming right now! We would love for you to check them out and let us know what you think. We have a forum set up for it with many photos! check it out here Do you have a favorite? What is the trend you see emerging? did your favorite company disappoint you or make you happy?

I also thought I would post a couple of little tips I have tried...

* when using liquid pearls to get the pearl shape after you place your pearls lightly tap the bottom of the paper.

*have piece of ribbon or lace you want to dye with your mist? Spray your mist in a baggie and then put your lace in. swish and move your lace around until you have the desired effect. Remove the lace and let dry or dry with your heat gun

* take a bounce sheet and rub it on the area you want to emboss before you stamp and it will stop the embossing powder from sticking where it shouldn't be.

* in a multi photo layout if you want to have a focal-point photo. You can make it stand out by....making it bigger, using pop dots, matting it and not the rest, making it black and white and the rest color (or vica versa) or using a fabulous photo effect!
