Materials for mixed media were everywhere at CHA Winter 2013. Faber-Castell, perhaps best known for its fine art materials, offers a line ideal for mixed-media artists under the label Design Memory Craft. Artists who enjoy the popular Gelato colors will want to check out the two new color sets: Tropical and 50’s Diner.
Since I am on the Stampendous blog team, I was excited to visit their booth at CHA. Their booth at CHA Winter 2013 was filled with lots of beautiful cards and other creative projects from their design team. Stampendous introduced several new stamp designs (clear, cling and wood mounted), new glitter colours and other fun stuff for CHA Winter 2013.
One of my favorites in the booth was the mirror displays on their wall – each mirror was decorated differently by their design team member and featured the use of their stamps, glitter, mica and color fragments.
Here’s a closer look at some of the mirrors’ details:
Stampendous also showcased their super fine glitters. I could not resist the urge to touch it – it’s almost like velvet!
My absolute favorites in the Stampendous booth were Fran’s Encrusted Jewels Kits. There are so many different ways you can use them! And I had no idea you can emboss from the back side! Here’s a quick video I took at the show:
Lily Bee Design introduced three new collections at CHA Winter 2013. Sweet Shoppe, Pinwheel, and Destination are the new collections from Lily Bee Design that will be hitting stores soon.

At Winter CHA 2013, Carta Bella Paper introduced several new collections including So Noted, Well Travelled and Cool Summer.
While most of their products are best suited for scrapbookers, their newly-launched 4″x6″ Card Packs really caught my eye as I think they would be a perfect place to start a quick card.
The new Card Packs will only be available as a part of the So Noted and Well Travelled collections, and will include 15 double-sided cards that measure 4″ by 6 “.
Here are a few photos of the Carta Bella Paper booth and a close up on one of the Card Packs:
The So Noted and the Well Travelled collections will be shipping in February, while the Cool Summer will begin shipping early March.
