Summer 2012 CHA Kick Off!

Can you hear the bagpipes? Today is the day that we have been working towards. CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) kicks off in Chicago this morning. The CHA show is so much fun--it mixes friends & crafts. I was able to go to the Chicago CHA in 2010. I was overwhelmed. I should have packed less so I could bring everything back with me. Reading blogs and seeing some of the photos from CHA will give you an idea of all the fun.

My favorite part was getting to know the JustRite Design Team better. I am blessed to have such a talented group of women to showcase the Amy Tedder Designs stamp collection. Each blog post gets me fired up to design more stamps for them to play with.

This Summer CHA is no exception. The Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Stamp Collection launches today. We have been working behind the scenes with Becca Feeken. You know her from the JustRite Design Team. Each stamp release she crafts beautiful projects for JustRite. Today we publicly announce that she is joining the stamp illustrator team! She was excited this morning when I told her that she was the main feature on my blog!

Vintage Alphabet Soup Background Stamp is so wonderful. The Design Team has been making lots of projects already with this. This stamp can be inked with one color or selectively colored with markers. Lots of options! Becca made a beautiful project with this stamp. See Becca's blog for more details.

This is a set you need to see in action. Becca designed this to have choices for sentiments. You can see that there are 2 thought libraries "Because you are so..." and I_____ you". The words on the top half of this package insert (shown above) fill in nicely with the "Because you are so...". The words towards the bottom fill in the blank left in the "I____you" sentiment. If you look to the bottom right of the package insert shown above, you will see a third set of words. These "words" can be used with many of the words to create your own words or sentiments. Visit Becca's blog AmazingPaperGrace to see the beautiful projects she created with this set.

Vintage Filigree Fancies was the first set that was introduced. This set is also versatile. The flowers may be used to create a focal point or a beautiful background. You may notice two other structural images on this storage card. The swirls in the middle of the board may be used to create a frame for the sentiments. The pin shaped image near the bottom right can also be used to make a frame. Use the images in a number of configurations to make a frame. Check Becca's blog AmazingPaperGrace.com to see more.

Hope you have enjoyed this introduction. Both Kellie & Becca said that they would send some photos of the JustRite Papercraft CHA booth and the Becca Release for me to share. Becca has been an inspiration to me as well as countless others. She has a sweet testimony. If you do not visited her blog I hope you do. It has been a privilege to walk with Becca through starting her JustRite Amazing Paper Grace stamp collection. She is already planning the next release! 

Grace & Peace,

P.S. If you go to the JustRite website or JustRite blog you will get a sneak peek of who we will introduce next!
