So I bet you thought I would come home and blog about stamps and paper and well you are sadly mistaken. Don't get me wrong .....there was so much paper and sooooo many stamps....and so many of my absolute favorite stampin and scrapbookin idols (I brushed by Taylor VanBruggen and my very first make and take was with Lisa Johnson at the Marvy booth....I was her first CHA guest...and I shook hand with one of my scrapbook idols Stacy Julian) and well.....I basically was in awe and completely overwhelmed from the moment I stepped into the building and like a big loser forgot to take out my camera until the very end.
Here are pics from one of my favorite booth at CHA...it was the Sizzix booth! OMG...can you say PINK and BLACK!!! The whole booth was done in pink and black to go along with their new pink and black line. I will seriously get a new Big Shot just to have the pink and black version.....as well as all the new pink and black accessories....yes, I am easily swayed by product packaging and presentation and Sizzix has hit me where it counts.....my wallet....with one of my favotire color combos....PINK and BLACK.
They also have a new line called Bigz XL (the XL stands for xtra long) which reqires an XL cutting mat. There is a new line of dies called Movers and Shapers which allow you to make an A2 size card and used different magnetic dies shapes to create a window in the card. There are also XL dies to make scallop cards, take out boxes, shaker boxes, purses and cupcake holders.
Of course, there are many other dies added to the collection but I was most impressed with the XL line. Oh and I can't forget al the wonderful pink and black carrying bags to house all your new pink and black tools and machines. Pretty sells and it's PRETTY!!
