Morning all, Kirsten here, 'tis snowing rather a lot here in Kent. And in much of the rest of the country too, judging by the weather forecast. Hope you're warm & cozy, wherever you are.
Since returning from California, Lisa has been madly busy sending out orders & working on other things, which are top secret & VERY hush-hush, so she has sent me some of her CHA photos to share with you. If you visit her Facebook page, you can see some of her Disneyland pics.
These first two are of the Convention Center in Anaheim, where CHA Winter takes place every year. Don't let the sunshine fool you, it was COLD in California. I have a friend who lives in the desert, about 80 miles from Anaheim & it started snowing two days before CHA opened.
This is a beautiful vintage card from cheerylynndesigns.com.
See this entire piece in the second blog post of Lisa's CHA photos.
If I've got it right, these are Spellbinders' samples. They launched a new machine at CHA, called The Artisan X-plorer, which is intended for cutting metal, fabric, plastic, etc. Lisa wants to get more information on this machine, before she decides if she will stock it. I use the Big Shot, which already cuts all of these, so I can't comment. This is from the Spellbinders' blog:
Introducing the new Spellbinders™ Artisan X-plorer™ Machine, a multi-purpose, high pressure machine! This elegantly designed, compact roller press is perfect for cutting, embossing and pressing with a multitude of materials, including paper, metals, fabrics, plastics and more!
The Artisan X-plorer Machine accommodates Spellbinders Media Mixáge™ products as well as Spellbinders die templates and embossing folders up to 4¼” wide. It features the same idea of our color coded plates to either cut or emboss in a single pass. This will no doubt become your go-to crafting solution for all kinds of projects, from jewelry to home décor, adornments to art journals, cards, layouts, fabric arts and mixed media!
With an integrated handle design, and weighing only five pounds, the Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer Machine is portable and convenient to use anywhere! The machine has a stability base to keep it in place during use.

Right, blogger won't let me post any more pictures in this post, (they've made some 'updates', which are incompatible with IE, apparently), so I'll end here & do other post immediately with more of Lisa's photos.
