CHA Sneak Peeks - do you want more?

good oh! here it comes!...........

Love this library tray from 7gypsies - - all ready for altering

What about an electric distresser - no more missing skin from your finger tops!!  - brand new from Zutter (not sure if this will catch on!)

Martha Stewart has a new range of punches out - Punch all over the page - does exactly what it says on the packet!!!  ha ha!! Think this might be good for card apertures, and there are quite a few designs to start with including a couple of hearts, circles, squares etc and a star border
new paper collections from Lily Bee - I love picket fence

Hopefully more tomorow, however I must say that theres not much out there that Im loving this year.........

CHA Sneak Peeks - Paper Runway from DCWV

Just found these photos from yesterdays opening day of the Die Cuts with a View stand - and their 'Paper Runway' - absolutly stunning! 


CHA Sneak Peeks - what about these lovelies?

First of all some bits that might be useful to my miniature friends......

Check out these little frames from 'miss fancy pants' they would look lovely with a little photo or print in them and then shabbied up - wadda ya think?

Im really interested in see the sizes of these little cameos from Websters, I think one would look lovely on a wall in a miniature bedroom perhaps?

Both Tim Holtz and 7Gypsies have brought out a range of glass bottles - I have some of the original bottles that 7gypsies produced and they are a perfect size for miniatures, but they proved fatal for scrapbooking in albums, a bit of weight and they shattered under pressure, Im sure they would be fine for altered art work or even cards. 


I love the pink paislee butterfly garden, especially the little charms on old fashioned safety pins, hope they are small enough to use as decor in my dolls house!!

Some more sparkly lovelies from Websters.  They have produced a few different sets of vintage sparklies - yummy aint they?
And what about this 'printers' tray for either showing off miniatures or for altered art, another gorgeous addition to the Tim Holtz Configurations range.

 want some more tomorrow?    lol!!!

CHA Sneak Peeks - and theres more!

check out these goodies!!!

Im going to be interested in seeing the actual size of these little 'doilies' particularly if I can use them for miniatures - they are from Websters

This new set of punches come from American Crafts - It looks as if you can buy the punch handle separately from the 'click' in punches - or you can buy them in a set shown below - good idea for keeping storage down, but I wonder if they are as strong as the Martha Stewart ones?
 Im loving the sassafrass lass papers with the scallop/decorated bottom edges

 Tims brought out a lot of new Stampers Anonymous stamps, the styles/designs are what we have come to expect from him, however this one is a new idea - it stamps in reverse which is great for 'kiss off' work or for stamping onto texture sheets before putting through the big shot.  There's a good video on his blog on how to use them.  This is one set Ill defiantly be buying!

Loving two of the new sets of Bo bunny - 'Timepiece' looks like there would be lots of uses to do whole co-ordinated albums 
 and Gabrielle - just gorgeous - think this will look fab with the new prima flowers as well!
 Check out the top border stamp - divine!!! - pink paislee
 Now in a weird way I really like this collection - love the colours and the antiqued effect - Ill just make sure not to buy the ones with the rodeo ponies!!! - Creative imaginations

CHA Sneak Peeks - 4 new Basic Grey

As usual there are four new basic grey ranges - I'm loving sweet threads - I'm hoping there's some mini prints to use for miniatures!!  The full collections are now on the Basic Grey site.  There's not much new with regards to elements - paper, stickers, brads, pops etc so that's a bit of a disappointment.  But they are still lovely!

There's also some lovely frame kits, which Ive not seen before.....(Sorry the picture is small, but they are the only ones I could screen grab!)

18" wall frame
 12" wall frame
 7" wall frame
