It's that time of year again... CHA or Craft and Hobby Association show.  It's in Anaheim, Calif. and I really wish I was there in person.  Although I can't be, some of my artwork is there representing some of my favorite manufacturers. I was given the go ahead to share some of my creations that will be featuring some new products!

First up is Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker's new lines!  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her new papers, stickers and there are so many of them!!!  I had so much fun creating these projects with them.  Here is my birdhouse with 2 birdies that are holding a cute banner (from her papers!).   It's using the new Summer line.

Up next is my kite made of "We Are Family" line.  The little kites inspired me to try to make a kite out of the papers!

Finally, it took me awhile to figure this out but I made rain boots completely out of paper!  I used the "It's Raining, It's Pouring" line to make the boots.  The soles are cardboard but the rest is paper and glue!

I love this release so much!  Nikki's gonna be a busy girl at CHA!

The other manufacturer that I design for is Faber- Castell's new Design Memory Create lines.  The products are amazing!  The watercolor pencils, pastel pencils, markers, and gelato sticks are just some of my favorites!  I created the following projects for their booth #547:

 This is a canvas and cardboard banner that I used a ton of techniques with all the new mixed media lines in blue and greens. I'm making 3 more with other color lines too!  I'm so excited that this one will be featured in new ads in magazines for their new product and in their catalog!  What an honor!
Here are 2 scrapbook pages that I made with the products in new ways:

 Gelatos, Pitt Pens, and more!
 I made some sprays out of the Gelatos (that I will be making a tutorial for on the DMC blog later) and also used Aquarelle pencils for the banner and the Pitt Pens to doodle.

That's it for today bloggers... I am home with a sick little one (and his 2nd birthday is tomorrow!) and have a bit of time to blog while he naps.  I'll be back over the weekend to share a few more pages I've been working on lately.
