I love new products…

… and this time of year is fun for that!  CHA – the big craft show – is the time when companies show off their newest goodies.

And I have some fun things I wanted to show you here.  The wonderful Tara from EK Success sent me a few of their new goodies.  They have GREAT punches coming out.  You won't believe it – I am gonna have to have them all.  They are the coolest!  The punches actually can be "locked closed" for easy, stackable storage.  Ahhh… how wonderful!  And there are awesome new border punches.  Woohoo!  Check them out…

Here is a card I made with a new border punch.  I used it to create the holes along the bottom.  The big star is a die cut which I adhere to the front of the card.  I then cut the center out with an exacto knife and stamped the greeting on the inside.

Supplies:

And here is a card I made using some of the great new Jolee's they have coming out.  They make cardmaking so fast and easy.  Love it.  I added brown Distress Stickles to the body for extra fun.  Bad photos, sorry.

    Right now my HAVE TO HAVE LIST includes those cool punches you shared & the several of the Spellbinder dies. I just discovered Webster’s Pages so I’m looking forward to seeing their new stuff. And Cuttlebug dies & embossing. I’m trying to decide if I need a Wizard to go along with my Cuttlebug. Can’t wait to hear what else you find that’s cool & new. Just once I would love to go the Trade Show not really to buy but to see what’s coming out.

  10. Oh my goodness, those punches are gorgeous, love that they can stack and the high tech look to them is so cool. I love the card you made with them too.

    Oh wow!!! Those punches are so cool – the one thing I dislike about punches is how hard they are to store!!!! I am looking forward to some of the same new products as you are – Basic Grey, Making Memories, Nestabilities, American Crafts, and hoping Doodlebug has some great new stuff.

    Oh…I just love these punches! I can not wait to find these.

    Love the star card. It looks like you made it with Coluzzle or Cricut. This would be fun to try with shapes of all kinds.

    Love how you used the Fiskars butterflies. They make cards extra special.

    I lvoe those punches! WHO KNEW! what a cool feature to lock! I want them all! lol!
    I can’t wait to see Paris Hilton’s line. My daughter and I tried to find a peek last night, but couldnt find anything. Just found horrible mean things people blogged about her. My feeling is, we need to take the higher road and not judge her, and I hope that her line is awesome and does well!

    Isn’t it funny that it took so long for a company to think of the snap shut solution for punches! Transporting them will be so much easier now!
