Day Two at CHA - Classes and Wrapping Up

I didn't take as many photos of the classes today. This house themed project was the second class. This one was sponsored by My Little Shoebox. They have scrapbook papers. They aren't exactly my style, but they are fun. I photographed the cover and a couple of the pages.

This was my first class. I was late as I got held up in one of the booths while I was ordering. This one was called Amazing Stamped Mini Book. I'm not sure how amazing the project was, but I got a ton of cool stuff from this class.
This is a Hampton Arts clear stamp that I really liked.

This is a snapshot of all of the loot that we got from this class. I think there were 4 stamp sets, 5 ink pads, 2 WM stamps, embossing powder and 2 of the Smooch inks. I'd never used the Smooch inks. We painted them on the stamps and stamped with them. They're kinda cool, but I don't know if I'd use them enough to buy any.
Wrapping up - I also went to my Victorian scrap wholesaler. I usually have to get these shipped from Germany. One of the former employees of the company started a wholesale distributor business here in the US. So now I can buy the Victorian scraps here in the US and I can order lesser quantities and have a bigger variety. Plus if I run out of something, I can get it in stock again in a few days. I was very happy to learn this. I've ordered about 25 new Victorian scraps. I'm not sure when they will be in.
Today was a long day. The show started at 10am and my last class finished at 8pm. Tomorrow I have a jewelry soldering class from 7-9am. I'll go to the show until my class at 4pm. My class at 4pm is one using the Glimmer Mist. I haven't used this stuff before, so I'd like to learn more about it.
One thing I forgot about Maya Road. They have a new product called "Maya Resist." It's like a liquid mask. I ordered in a few of these.
Thanks for taking the time to share in my CHA adventure!
