Happy Friday! I hope you don’t mind seeing a photo of myself, not a card. I just wanted to share something different today. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably know that I went to the CHA craft show in AZ last month? I did a few Make & Take sessions for Altenew and Hero Arts.

DSC_5199-2I also made 100 goody bags for the Altenew booth which were filled with beautiful embellishments and patterned papers from Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection. I basically prepared about 10 goody bags a day, and it took me more than a week to finish 100 goody bags.

DSC_5194 It was a lot of work – but I was happy to see people receiving their free gifts and making big smiley faces. The time and effort that I put into these were paid off!

DSC_5187The elements in the Scrapbook Collection were way too beautiful, so I had to take some photos while prepping the goody bags. And those wood buttons with watercolor designs??!!! They are absolutely gorgeous!

Altenew_Scrapbook_KitThis is the product image in case you are curious about what’s included in the Scrapbook Collection. I asked my amazingly talented friends, Lilith and Ashley, if I can share their beautiful layouts with my blog readers. Of course, they said big YES!

Altenew-LayoutThey all used Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection to create the layouts above. I know most of you are cardmakers like me, but isn’t it great to get some inspiration not just from cards but layouts once in a while?

I created a collage using the photos of my old/new friends that I met at the show:


Hope they don’t mind sharing their photos here. Can you tell I had so much fun meeting my friends? I can’t thank them enough for their encouragement, support, inspiration, and love. Seriously, crafty friends are the best!


I love sending happy mail to my friends. This time I decided to send them printed photos even though they are not good quality because I took the photos with iPhone. I’ve sent the photos to about 20 friends since I came back from CHA and I’m planning to mail out to the rest of them by the end of this month hopefully.

    Loved seeing your pictures! I’m too late to win anything, but I like to craft with two of my friends who live two and a half hours away. It is always a special time when we get together.
