Use Pinterest to Keep Track of Your CHA Favorites!

Screen Shot 2012-02-06 at 7.01.41 PM

Did you know that you can save the CHA videos on Pinterest the same way you can save a regular photo image?

At the top of this post is a screenshot of my CHA 2012 Faves board. Click here for a closer look. I’m using it to keep track of all the products that debuted at CHA that I’m interested in purchasing as they release over the next few months.

Here’s what you might want to include if you create your own…

  • Create a board called something like, “CHA 2012 Faves.”
  • If you see stuff you like while watching a video, click the Pin It button and choose the image of the video.
  • Note the name of the company.
  • Note the release date if I shared it.
  • Note the specific products you’re most interested in.

I’ve only just got going on my list and I still need to go back to my earlier videos to add some favorites (you may notice that Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp products are not pinned, though they definitely will be!).

Don’t overwhelm yourself, though! There is more gorgeous product than we could ever possibly use. And don’t let the amazing projects make you feel inadequate, either. The entire purpose of those CHA projects are to sell product. Unless you’re on a design team, that’s probably not your purpose. It’s definitely not mine.

CHA 2012 – Silhouette Cameo Cuts, Draws, Does Vinyl, and Bling

Now that Ali Edwards has been using the Cameo to make cut paper versions of her digital products, we expect a whole lot of other people to start doing it too! Not only can you cut shapes from jpgs or digital designs (with the designer software), there are other things you can do with a Cameo – You can draw, cut vinyl, and add rhinestones in designed shapes!

The Last of CHA 2011 – Photos!

We have posted every last video we made from CHA! There are a lot of companies that I love that we missed. We completely ran out of time this year. We shot our last video past the moment it was time for us to head out of town and then we literally dragged our equipment out of the conference center and into the conference center garage where we got into the car and drove home!

Here are the rest of the pictures I haven’t had time to post until now.

Pantone Cookies
Here’s a funny story. Izzy had found a picture online of some rectangular-shaped cookies. They had beautiful colored frosting on the top two thirds. The bottom third was white with a Pantone number written in black edible pen! They were Pantone color chip cookies!

I emailed the picture to Stacy Julian and told her that if we were on top of things, Izzy and I would bake those for her and send them to her (being the lover of color that she is!).

Well guess what? Stacy pulled out this bright green bag and outdid us by handing those same cookies to all of us! Awesomeness. I love that lady!

Here’s me getting hyped up on the anticipation of sugar, and pulling out the cheesiest smile I can muster. Just for the fun of it.

And then we got very serious as we listened to Ana Cabrera tell us about angry adhesives.
Jan2011 2925

It’s a very serious matter.
Jan2011 2927

See? Even Stacy thinks so.
Jan2011 2929

But Izzy? Not so much. This boy cannot get serious. Not even when we’re talking about angry adhesives.

Me, Steph from The Daily Digi, and Nancy Nally.

Oh, in case you were confused, there are two more letters on my shirt that you can’t see in the picture. Below the HO is a PE. Just thought I’d clarify so we have no questions floating around here. :)
