CHA and a new Fancy Pants Project

*** Crafty Secrets has a great giveaway going over on the Heartwarming Vintage blog.. if you want to check it out****


I looked back through posts to see if I had posted this project yet..and I didn't see it.. but if I did , forgive me. After getting all those posts ready before I left for CHA, and then not being able to post them.. I'm so confused about what I posted here and what I haven't. lol
This is a project I did with the new Fancy Pants "All Fall" line. I did it and backed it with a heavy chipboard piece , so that it can hang from this Pants Hanger that I altered to match.

Here it is with the whole thing with the hanger. I love altering these pants hangers to display layouts also.

they clip tight and hold it in place really well.
You can see the new matching chipboard and decorative brads here.

I did some hand stitching to this chipboard piece. All the patterned chipboard pieces are self adhesive.
I have to share with you some photos from the Jenni Bowlin booth. Oh.. I just wanted to lay in the middle of the floor in this booth and take it all in!!! I love everything JB. This booth was filled with inspiration! EVERYWHERE!

All of the shelves where filled with beautiful projects.

This is her new paper line. The buttery color is sooooo beautiful! It's the Victoria line. You can see more.. here on her blog.

oh.. and the tickets....

Her props were all so cool and I thought it was so clever how she painted the backs of her shelving units with (what I think was Chalkboard paint).

Classy and fun

Jenni and her husband on the left. She is just so nice.

Here , you can see how she utilized the backs of the shelving units with the chalkboard look, buy highlighting layouts she's displayed.

I was in heaven is this booth!
Another Amazing booth was Graphic 45. Wow.. just stunning.

You can not imagine how beautiful this buggy really was. The photo doesn't begin to do it justice. You can click to see it larger.
Their papers where beautifully displayed in these frames.
I'm sure it took them quite a while to get this booth set up.. because it was amazing.
To tell you the truth.. I got so caught up in the booth set up.. I did really "look" at the papers themselves. I guess I'll go online to do that. lol


I had to spend some time chatting with my sweet friend Tammy Tutterow. So kind and SO talented. Here we are in the Pink Paisley booth were she was working.
They had a great booth with so many great samples to look at. They've got some amazing new things coming out. I'm so excited about their new glitters also.

Okay... I've finally worked my way through most of my CHA photos.
Today, I'm working on some layouts for upcoming classes.. so I better stop chatting and get to it! lol
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Oh... one more photo to share... isnt this cute?

I saw that you are getting ready for some classes...Where do you teach?

I just loved seeing the photos of all the stuff from CHA. I so missed going this year. I guess I will just have to live vicariously through everyone that did get to go.

Wow! Love your wall art with the new FP line. Just beautiful and such details. JB is a fav of mine too. Her display would have me on the floor too. But, that Graphic 45 is to die for! Rose posted this for me to see and I fell truly, madly, deeply, in love with these vintage products. Amazing!
