Three More Dylusions Tags

Here are three more Dylusions tag for the Dylusions Tag Swap I'm hosting at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  I decided to use the same images (mostly), but change out the colors.  The backgrounds are also made differently from the tags I made yesterday.  These are big tags!  They are around 4" x 8".  I think this large size tag is perfect for the larger Dylusions stamped images.  I will add fibers and ribbons to the tags. Next week I will have #8 and #10 manila tags in stock at Collage Stuff.  Thanks for stopping by!  Which tag is your favorite??

Last Dylusions Tag for Today

This is the last Dylusions tags for today.  The three tags are very similar, but not exactly alike!

Second Dylusions Tag

Here is another tag featuring Dylusions products and techniques!

Dylusions Tag Swap!

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, I will be hosting a Dylusions tag swap.  This is a sample tag that I made using the Dylusions spray inks, Studio Gesso, Dependable Dotty stamp set, a Stampotique stamp, and a small Dylusions Letter Jumble Stencil.  If you'd like to join in this swap, please join the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group!  Thanks for stopping by!

The Crafter's Workshop at CHA

 This photo shows some of new templates.  Several of the new template designs have matching stamps!
 Just a general shot of the wall of the booth.

Most of these designs are new and designed by Dina Wakely.  I met her at the booth.  I love these new designs.  They are all on order!

Pretty Tape at CHA

This lace is self-stick!  I ordered it in several colors and widths.  I love to add lace to my art projects, but it is such a pain to glue it down decently.  I also ordered in a few washi tapes.  There are so many that it was hard to choose just a few.

Jenni Bowlin products

I thought that these new stickers were cool!  They make great little collage elements.

All of these items about are ATC size.  The lotto cards are a perfect background for an ATC.  I think the others would make great focal points in larger projects like 4x4's and larger.

I ordered in several of the vintage themed clear stamps.  The butterfly one is taken from a childen's book and has a poem about a butterfly's home.

These are cigar box replicas.  The smaller one is not divided.  The larger one is divided so that it may be made into a shadow box collage.

the Iron Crafter at the CHA show

The Iron Crafter!  This happened a couple of times a day at the show.  Three volunteers were given a supply of unconventional crafting supplies and asked to create something with a certain theme in 10 minutes!  I thought about being one of the volunteers one time, but somebody beat me to it!  The volunteers got nice prizes and everyone in the audience got a prize too.

Dresses Displayed at the CHA Show

Various designers made dresses that were displayed at the CHA show.  I took photos of a few of my favorites.  I did not note who designed each dress and for that I apologize.  There were many more than this on display!

CHA Day 3

Hi everyone-
Today was my last day at the show.  The second day is nice as it isn't so crowded.  It's easier to do make-n-takes and look at the products.  Several posts follow.  Each post is about a specific vendor.  I did take my camera with the memory card today, so there are a lot of photos.  I will post more after I return home.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my 2012 Summer CHA adventure!

CHA Day 3 - Petaloo Dazzlers

These are the Vintage Dazzlers.  The first two photos are sample projects using the Vintage Dazzlers.  The last 3 photos are samples of the Vintage Dazzlers.

These are the new Seasonal Dazzlers.  There are some for Christmas, Thanksgiving and of course, Halloween.  The last 2 photos are sample projects using the Seasonal Dazzlers.

CHA Day 3- Stamper's Anonymous

Stamper's Anonymous has re-released some of the stamps in the vinyl cling format.  I ordered in these 3 sets.  If you have been stamping for a while, these stamps will look familiar.  If you are new to stamping, these will be new to you!                                                               

CHA Day 3 - Mica tiles from USArtquest

I ordered in some Mica tiles from USArtquest.  You  can see here how lovely the Mica sheets look when they are embossed.  I believe this is reflective Mica.  I ordered in the regular Mica in tiles, three sizes of circles and some little tags.  The mica tiles may be die cut.  The tiles and shapes may be embossed with embossing folders.  Since Mica is non-porous, it can be colored with alcohol inks and probably Copic markers.  Stamp on Mica using black acrylic paint.

CHA Day 3 - May Arts

This is a sampling of some of the new ribbons/trim that I ordered from May Arts.
I thought this floral lace was gorgeous!  I ordered it in white and brown.  The white is good because one may change the color of white trim with Distress Inks, Colorwash Sprays, etc.

The glitter ribbon is so shiny!  I ordered several Christmas colors.

CHA Day 3 - Dylusions

Some photos of samples using the new seasonal Dylusions stamps and stencils!

There are actually 4 new sets of Dylusions stamps.  At the Stamper's Anonymous booth, someone must have stolen the 4th set.  It is a set of borders.
