Sorry for the delay in sharing the FEW photos that I took at CHA. You just get so busy that you forget to take the camera out, however, I did catch a few photos that highlight projects that I created for booths, some people I got to hang with and our rockin' Basically Bare booth!
Let's get started....
First of all, we decided to make a 7ft corrugated cardboard dress form, dubbed "Basically Betty" that matched the Basically Bare dress form embellishment and covered it in papers and foil from Vintage Street Market. VSM has paper that is 48" x 24" and was a life saver in this case. This is the blank version and then me covering it in layers of VSM papers in our hotel room. The completed dress form is the photos of the booth.
The front of the finished booth. The few photos we took of setting up were quite blurry.
And Miss Jamie handling the miniature "Dorothy" dress forms using Graphic45, Magic of Oz papers, Craftworks Cards Candi's and Scrapbook Adhesives. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors and to Jamie for taking the time to help out!
A few visitors came by the booth:
Angel, co-owner of Basically Bare with Tiare, Kim and Melissa from The Rubber Cafe. Melissa stopped by so I can see the new stamps that I designed. How exciting is that?
Then we headed over to the Spellbinders booth to check out Melissa doing her awesome Make n' Take using her awesome glue and new stamps!!
Ok, now for the projects that were featured at the show. I did a mixed media canvas for Scrapbook Adhesives using photo corners to make the flowers and other adhesives to make the different effects. Sorry I did not get any close up photos! Arrggh. I used an awesome alpha from Imaginarium Designs for the words: Create. Inspire. Teach.
Then there is the Westcott Designer Display where we were shipped an assortment of cool duct tape, velcro and scissors in which we could use an additional three products to create whatever we wanted. Hmmm....wonder what I was going to do.
I used May Arts ribbon for the lace of the corset, the back has a velcro fastener, the entire corset is made from duck tape with a scissor holder built in. I also used small gears from Imaginarium Designs and large heavy duty gears from Basically Bare.
There were 20 designers that were included in this display, here is a shot of the case I was in. Check out the other cool projects that were made.
Last but certainly not least, the Dorothy Mannequin at the Graphic45 booth with her little ruby slippers. She was quite a bit of work but I love how she turned out! She also has the "No Place Like Home" album that I will be teaching in Australia in just a week and a half.
Well, that is it. I got a chance to talk to some great people, make new friends and spend time with old friends. What a fantastic show, cant wait to share some of the awesome opportunities that came about for me. Life is good, thank you for sharing!
