Stuff I Want from the CHA Mega Show

The big question I keep hearing is, "What stuff do you want that you saw at CHA?" Obviously, I want it all! Wouldn't it be a dream to have a whole Convention Center full of the most amazing craft materials ever, neatly organized, and always at your disposal? And experts to teach you how to use it? Sounds like heaven.

So perhaps the better question is, "What do you actually intend to buy that you saw at CHA?" Topping the list is the Mod Podge Collage Clay that I mentioned in my Make and Take post. It was so much fun and I see so many possibilities for fun kids' crafts. I'm definitely getting some of the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. That stuff was fantastic! I also want the rabbit brads from Eyelet Outlet that I mentioned in my Rabbits of CHA post. And the Proggy rabbit kit from the same post. Oh, and the Amazing Remelt and Hazel and Ruby's DIY Decor Tape, both from the Hot Products Nominees post

Needless to say, I saw a lot of scrapbook products that I want. Pretty much anything with tiny polka dots or tone-on-tone stripes has my name written all over it, like the gorgeous new shades of Double Dot papers by BoBunny... 


... or the Color Chaos line by Bella Blvd


I love the Skinny alphabet stickers by Doodlebug Design. 


And I'm definitely getting the Yippee collection from Chickaniddy Crafts. Aren't these three papers absolutely gorgeous together? (And totally me?!) I want their cool enamel words too...


It's not a scrapbook product, but I also fell in love with Duck Brand's new scented tape.  There are six colors with six different scents and I want them all! How fun would it be to try more projects from Amanda's book using scented duct tape?!


There are a few other must-haves on my list, which I'll be mentioning in future posts. In several cases, the exhibitors saw me drooling over their products and handed me samples. I cannot wait to share them one at a time. 

How about you? What are your must-haves from CHA 2015?

  4. Glad you are excited about the new products. You are so lucky to be residing in the country where all the excitement happens. I pretty much only buy stuff that my LSS brings in and they are usually the popular items rather than the cool stuff.
