Day Three at CHA

I am back in Houston, blogging from home. Today, I went to my Crafty Secrets class at 7am. ACK! The class was full. Everyone was sorta bleary eyed, but we had fun.
This is a simple card we made using the new set of bird stamps. It has several tiny birds, some words and 3 different bird cages. I love this stamp set. It's on order. Have you seen the Crafty Secrets shadow box kits? The shadow box is an Acc-Cut die. This photo shows the project flat on the table. We used the new Sewing Creative Scraps and the new Material Girl stamp set. I know I ordered the stamps and I hope I ordered the Creative Scraps. I have a dozen of these kits with the Altered Fairy Creative Scraps.

Here's a close-up of the left-side.

Here's a close-up of the middle page.

And here is the right side. The little needle packet actually opens up and there is a little piece of felt with straight pins.
These shadow box kits are actually class kits, so the instructions are OK, but not exactly step by step. They are EASY to put together, just crease on the folds that are made when the cardstock is die cut and apply some adhesive.
So this concludes my CHA diary. I've ordered many products that I haven't shown. Things will arrive in the store at different times. Some of the Tim Holtz items will ship in September and October. The Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz stamps should be here in 2-3 weeks.
Thanks for following along!
