Day 3 at the CHA show!

Today was a short day! I went over to the show for a couple of hours. I stopped by the Ranger booth to see what Tim Holtz was up to with his demos.

Somebody asked about the new Stickles glitter glue in Distress colors. Tim explained that the Distress color Stickles glitter glue are different than the regular Stickles glitter glue. The Distress colors are in a bottle with a larger hole to help discourage the hole getting clogged up and that the glitter itself is in a variety of sizes. The glitter looks more like glass glitter.
The first photo is a close-up of the two of colors on chipboard. The second photo just shows the colors on a display board. I liked the walnut stain, peeled paint and all of them really! I didn't order any, but will stock some of these later on. If I get enough feedback on these, I'll order these in sooner than later!
I saw the new metalic colors and white color of the crackle paint. Here's a photo of the colors and some samples. I think the reindeer on one of the tags is from the grungeboard holiday set. I didn't order the metallic crackle paints, but will stock these later on.

I went to the Nunn Design booth. They make the pendant trays. I found a lot of cool stuff here. I re-ordered some of the styles I already stock. I didn't know that they made charms. I ordered in some cool crown charms in silver and gold.
I asked if I could take a photo of this pendant and they gave it to me! This is one of the crowns I ordered in. The little jewel is not a part of the crown charm. This is made in the large silver rectangle pendant tray.

Here's a better photo of the crown charms I ordered in. The top one is coming in gold and silver. I already stock the left charm in gold, so I ordered it in silver. The right charm in coming in gold and silver.

This isn't a great photo, but I ordered these small rectangle tags in gold, silver and copper. I like the ribbed edge. I don't have a ruler with me, but I'd estimate they are about 1/2 x 3/4". The pendant trays are cast pewter. These tags are stamped brass, so they are much less expensive.

These large rectangle tags are also stamped brass and less expensive than the pendant trays. I ordered these in gold, silver and copper. Again, no ruler, but I think they are about 1.25 x 1.5" inches; a nice larger size. The last thing I ordered from Nunn Design are these tiny pendant trays. I got both the circle and squares. I got each of these in gold, silver and copper. I would guess they are about 3/8". I ordered in the Tim Holtz ball chains and jump rings. They will work perfectly with all of the Nunn Design products. These little pendant trays will hang off of the Tim Holtz trinket pins too.

This concludes my CHA adventures! There was a lot more stuff I could have ordered, but I had to pick and choose. Some things I will order in later on. I really enjoyed this vacation away from my day job. It's been fun focusing on Collage Stuff and just taking it easy! Some of the Tim Holtz items won't ship to me right away, but I expect that most of the things I've ordered will begin shipping soon. I already have the German scrap that I bought yesterday in my hands. It's going back to Houston with me tomorrow! It will be the weekend before I get a chance to get this new German scrap listed at Collage Stuff.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my CHA trip!
