Back from Chicago : part 1 : CHA-S 07

I'm back from Chicago. My trip was a great combination of lots of work and lots of fun.

CHA was big and busy. The Urban Lily booth looked great. And the UL products were well received. Everyone who passed through the booth were so friendly. Despite spending three days with Renata and Phil, we didn't get a photo together. But I did manage to get a few of the booth, below. I'm hoping Kim M and Adrienne, UL DT members will forward some photos, as I know they took some when they visited the booth

Left photo: The Urban Lily Secret Keeper Cards. What a hit they were. We loved the reaction from everyone as we would open them up to reveal the inside. Middle photo: The UL booth. Right photo: A fantastic little display piece for some of the smaller projects.

It was great to meet up with the girls from my other design teams, Maya Road and Paper Salon.

Deb, Caroline and Jess from Maya Road were so friendly and welcoming, as were all the DT girls who were working the MR booth. So lovely to meet them.

Also loved meeting up with the Paper Salon girls and go out with them a couple of times in the evenings, was great to spend time with them. Below is Jen, a fellow Crowded House fan and PS DT'er. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of everyone at the booth :-(


One other lovely lady I was able to meet was Kai-mei from Fontwerks. I have been a fan of Fontwerks for the last few years, and always love seeing the new products they release.


We met lots of other fun people. Will post more later. As well as some sight seeing photos of Chicago. Love, LOVE that city. Loved wandering the streets, catching the 'L' around town, jumping on and off the buses to get around town, going up tall towers with spectacular views, wandering through parks... Anyway, more of that in another post.

Thanks for visiting.

...and another CHA-S sneak peek for Maya Road

Last one, I promise!

This one is very cute. It's being released at CHA-S by Maya Road. It's the Flower Petal Tab album. Each round page has a petal section on it. When assembled, all the petals sit around the album.

There are two other new Maya Road products on this album. The pink gathered rick rack is new, so is the little chipboard arrow shape which is included in a Microchip arrow-shape set.




Again, the full album is over on my website.

Also check the Maya Road blog for lots of sneak peeks in the photo albums.



a few more Maya Road sneaky peeks for CHA

A couple more projects for Maya Road...

The first one uses the Maya Road scalloped accoridan chipboard book, released earlier this year. The new sneaky peek on this project is the little pink chipboard hearts. These are a very cute size, and I received some pink hearts to play with recently from the MR girls. I've covered them with Kindyglitz and then applied a glossy sealer.




Now, next, is one of the NEW sheer books Maya Road is releasing at CHA-S. Lots of fun using this one, being a bit creative with the attachment of photos and embellishments!




I've added both to the galleries over on my website if you'd like to see all the pages of these books. The sheer album can be found here, and the accordian album can be seen here.Thanks for popping by my blog.



Maya Road sneak peek

Here's another little fun project I've created for the Maya Road stand at CHA-S. (Using some previously released products from MR, not CHA-S 07 releases)

This project uses one of three little books using the Maya Road TRANSPORTATION Chipboard Books set and goes with the counting book I've shared previously. It is decorated with Scenic Route papers and the Maya Road Chipboard star shapes. I was also able to use lots of older letter stickers I've had around for a long time.


And a couple of inside pages:



I've put the whole album over in the gallery on my website.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day.

urban lily sneak peeks for CHA-S 07

Some sneak peeks for Urban Lily have started appearing on the UL blog.

Renata has created some amazing new products, the LIFE BOOK is just gorgeous with lots of pre-printed pages, and the SECRET KEEPER CARDS are a perfect place to pop your journaling on your projects.



Hope you're having a good day!
