Happy New Year! {#OneLittleWord}
My Favorite Products from CHA 2016

Are you ready for new craft products?

It's CHA time! Which mean all the new craft products are being unveiled and will be hitting store shelves soon. -It's an exciting time of year for the arts and crafts industry, and I'm thankful to get to be a part of it.

I'm over at the Brother ScanNCut booth demoing the NEW ScanNCut2 machine...and they even blew up a photo of one of my projects display on the outside of my demo station.  :)

The theme of our booth is a candy shop so we have lots of samples of delicious looking papercrafts, sewing, and embroidery candy...along with the real stuff of course. May Flaum created this little vignette with the help of her ScanNCut.

As I was headed out the door to the show I whipped up a few of these adorable candy huggers from an SVG file Lia Griffith created, the lucky few that got them loved them! If you're looking for lots of great SVG files you've got to check her site out.

Also during the show I've been whipping up this kirigami pattern because it reminds me of candy! Philip Chapman Bell created the PDF file and I've been cutting it out on my ScanNCut2 and then assembling them.  It's super fun!

 After the show wraps up I'll be sure to post a follow up on any cool new products I come across while a the show!


Happy crafting!
