CHA Supershow Anaheim 2010 Saturday Highlights

Saturday was the 2nd day of the consumer CHA Supershow in Anaheim, which preceded the opening of the CHA tradeshow this morning. Here’s a look at a few highlights from the day yesterday:

Heidi Grace Kress was hosting make-n-takes first thing in the morning at the Ever After Scrapbooks booth using her new Colorbök product.

One retailer was selling Copic markers for an incredible $2.69/each, and had this selection of Strathmore Artist Trading Cards paper bases were on sale Buy One, Get One Free. There was Canvas, Illustration Board, Watercolor Paper, and other materials cut into bases for ATC’s, as well as envelopes and plastic cases for them. I’d never seen these before and snapped up a selection to play with!

Stacy Julian appeared at the Treasured Memories booth to promote her new scrapbooking kits, and was handing out little bottles of emergency sprinkles in case a CHA-er comes across a brownie that doesn’t have sprinkles on it.

Cricut has a new machine called the Cricut Cake which is essentially a version of the Expression machine that has been specially fitted on the inside to handle food. Specifically it cuts thin sugar sheets and thicker fondant for cake decorating. More details (and pictures!) coming in separate post!

“Inside Edition” host Deborah Norville made an appearance to promote her new knitting book, “Knit with Deborah Norville“. She was also giving impromptu knitting lessons about how to do the technique for the mitten that she was working on at the signing table.

Die Cuts With a View had a computer lab set up in their booth to let people get hands-on with their new digital products at

    I love getting your updates, even though I’m not a professional. It always keeps me up to date with the industry. I knew that the magazines we lost last year were going, before they went. And all the sneak peaks for CHA were great. The new Cake Cricut was, however, a total surprise. They really kept that one under wraps!
    Thanks for all you do for us.
