Hello from CHA!

Hello from CHA! We all arrived safely to Los Angeles and the weather is amazing! Thursday evening after everyone arrived we had dinner at Johnny Rockets and settled into our hotel.

Friday it was all about setting up our booth! We're located next to Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd as well as many other manufacturers.

We managed to snap a few pics of the team setting up the booth.

Creative projects with Harmony

Hello there! With CHA only days away now the team is already working on some amazing inspiration for you in February with our 2011Winter Releases.
For now we have some beautiful inspiration from our design team starting with Erin Yamabe and some beautiful family themed layouts.

Harmony_EYamabe1

This is such an adorable layout. Grand parents are the best!

Harmony_EYamabe2

 Love that these photos are black and white and the use of the stamps

Harmony_EYamabe4


Harmony_EYamabe5

Love the bling!

Harmony_EYamabe7

 Now let's take a look at some gorgeous projects from Cindy Stevens

Harmony Posh

And this beautiful gift bag is just too cute!

And to finish off Harmony, some more wonderful inspiration from Tracey

MLS - Daydream (Harmony)

Tracey included a little background on how she was inspired to scrap this layout

“Daydream” Layout… I LOVE photos from the back… you can’t see the subject’s eyes, but you can see what they are seeing, and you can imagine what they are thinking at that moment in time.  Here is Anna, holding onto a telescope at the Wild Animal Park … not looking through the telescope, but looking out and over the beautiful landscape.  What could this 5 year old be thinking about?  There are a few fun things going on here… I covered the chipboard accent with MLS paper, then sanded it (because I can not cut a straight line for the life of me!)  I LOVE the look of paper covered, sanded chipboard!!!  I added several stickers to the top of the chipboard, but if you look closely, you will see that I stamped the flower image on the white cardstock, under the chipboard and in the same colors of the sticker flowers, giving a fun layered flower effect above and below the chipboard.  The border of this layout was created with Glimmer Mist… to pull the whole thing together

MLS - Daydream close (Harmony)

Another cute layout

MLS - Modeling for MLS (Harmony)

That's a wrap for us with our Harmony inspiration for you. We hope you'll show us some of your beautiful layouts and projects on our Facebook wall.

Altered inspiration from Kathleen

What inspires you when you are crafting? Sometimes I might see a color combo, a great card or scrapbook sketch and get inspired. Sometimes it's the things I make and hang in my studio that inspire me. What do you have hanging in your scrap space that inspires you? Tell us by leaving a comment below.

Today we want to inspire you with Kathleen's altered wall art.

This project with our Summer Breeze collection is simply stunning!

and it's finished off with this adorable little bee. This altered project is truly inpiring

Here's a few tips for altering home decor with paper.

  1. you'll need a few nail files to shave away your excess paper so that you get flushed edges.
  2. choose a good liquid glue to hold your paper. I've found that spray adhesive is easy to work with as  well as Tombo Mono liquid adhesive.
  3. Use faux stitching or distress inks around the edges of your project to make it pop

We hope you'll be inspired to make a home decor project for your scrapbook room or where ever you create!

Next celebrate friendships by creating this handmade jewelry set. Beckie tells us just how she did it too!

Beckie D CAS Setb

"I made a jewelry set by rolling up strips of the paper and making beads before adding them to some wire."

CAS Close Up Necklace

"I made the 'charms' by using the stamps and stamping them on shrink plastic.  I used a crop o dile to punch out a whole in the middle before shrinking them."
