CHA Anticipation

it's almost 6AM and in less than an hour, we'll be heading down to the CHA convention and stand in line. We've already been able to see some sneak peeks last night.
We attended 3 preview events: Making Memories, Creative Imaginations and S.E.I.

I'm really excited about the 2 products from Creative Imaginations: Mudd Puddles and Real Wood.
Mudd Puddles is a textured and colored sand mixed with glue, which can be applied to any surface. What does it look like? Well, sand of course! Think of a beach layout with waves of sand!

Real Wood is a very thin wood veneer with a paper backing. It's amazing. The sheets are die-cuttable, embossable (you can run them through a Cuttlebug or other with embossing folders), printable, etc. You can make your own really cute wood embellishments.

At the S.E.I. preview party, we were treated to their beautiful new lines. We purchased: Juliette, Claire and Jocelyne as well as 6 new colors of Suede papers.

At the Making Memories preview event, we saw the cute new baby lines called Pitter Patter as well as a travel line that will be coming out in a few months. We also got to see the 12 new Slice cartridges. I'm very excited about them, but 2 are especially wonderful: Cooking and Paws&Claws. Oh... also the beach one is pretty cool. Well, let's be realistic, they are all cool.

We also purchased the pink Slice as well as all new pink slice accessories. The newest accessory for the Slice is the HANDS FREE kit. It's a magnetic cutting board with a magnetic cradle that holds your Slice firmly in place against the board. Once you select the shape you want to cut, you just walk away and let the machine do the work without having to hold it. This is such a nice improvement!!!
