Day 3 - CHA Summer 2012

By the last Day of CHA things are beginning to wind down and there are fewer people on the show floor making it much easier to take photos. Here's what I liked today.

I found some great project samples at the Canvas Corp booth:
Burlap Jester Stockings from Canvas Corp
Burlap and Canvas wall art

Stretched Canvas shadow box
Graphic 45 always has beautiful themed display stands at their booth. This one was my favourite.
Wonderful Christmas Display at Graphic 45 featuring their new paper collection, Nutcracker Sweet
Heidi Swapp had quite a few new innovations which took my fancy. Firstly, the neon embellishments. Neon is a hot new trend but she cautions us to use it sparingly!
Neon Tapes and embellishments.
Heidi Swapp used Hero Arts new Neon  ink pads in for this hot look!
Day Glow Tape
Color Shine mists - designed to spray on Heidi Swapp resist papers but works equally well on canvas and leather!
Connie Crystal had the most wonderful display of crystal beaded objects at her booth. It is worthy of a blog post all on its own but here's the spectacular gown at the centre of the booth.
How about this for bead-dazzled - a beaded gown from Connie Crystal.
I'll share more pics in another post but in the meantime, why not head on over to the CHA Designers Pinterest Board to check out what some of the other designers found on the show floor.

'Til next time.....
