CHA, cards, winners and such!

 If you are a die-hard crafter (like yours truly) you are glued to social media this weekend, living vicariously through all those who at CHA.  And if you are NOT a die-hard (ahh hem, crazy and obsessed) crafter, then you have no idea what CHA is or why we would care.  CHA is the Craft and Hobby Association, and twice a year companies, designers, store owners, and magazine editors converge on a major convention center to see all of the new goodies coming out this season.  I've been glued to Instagram, Facebook, and blogs catching sneak peeks of new product and the who's who of some of my favorite crafters having a blast.  Granted, most of them are working their tails off, and completely exhausted - (but it still looks like a heck of a lot of fun!)  The only time I made it to CHA, I was seven months pregnant, and as big as a house.  Not ideal, my friends. :)

A few of my projects are in the Sizzix booth at CHA right now, with Stephanie Barnard . . . I wonder if I can show you a sneak peek of a few of them? These two cards are made with Stephanie's Flip Its dies.  The first photo shows the front of the card, and the second is what happens when you FLIP the card to see the inside.

 This second card stands up sideways so when you FLIP, you actually flip it UP. I really like the way this one turned out.  Both of these cards feature stamps and coordinating dies that will be available from Sizzix.  Super fun stuff.

Okay, onward to other things. . ..the winners of the Paper Smooches laundry-inspired cards, as well as the Purex Baby coupons! 
I had my little guys choose numbers, and the winners are 
comment number 8 and number 21. . .Sevin, and Jillian!

Jillian said...
This is my 1/11 entry. Yay!
Hooray for Sevin and Jillian! I have sent you both messages, but be sure to get me your addresses and I will mail your cards and coupons out! 
Thanks so much to everyone who commented and participated! I wish I had coupons to give to EVERYONE!!! The good news is, that I have a Borax coupon giveaway coming up shortly (next week perhaps!?) And I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I am chosen by Purex to receive Purex Baby Crystals to give away too.  So stay tuned and keep checking back! I'll always post here and on Facebook when I have goodies to share!

These are so cool! I love it when you open a card like this and it is a surprise and very fun how the card transforms! Love them both!
