……………………. Want2Scrap …………………….
This lovely company was well represented at CHA, you could find them by following the shiny sparkle coming from their booth. It was Sparkle City!Want2Scrap specializes in bling, acrylic albums, chipboard albums and album kits as well as laser designs, designer paper and ribbons. In fact, my special friend and CHA roadtrip buddy, Elise Durenberger, is one of their newest designers! And JSIM reader and local fab-talent, Dana Gustafson also designs for Want2Scrap.
Want2Scrap sent out all of these wonderful embellishments to include in the swag bags:
Self Adhesive White Pearls…and Pink Pearls,Le Cream Baby Pearls,and their gorgeous new self-adhesive Jumbo Swirls bling about to be released!
Here is the sweet thank-you card for the swag bags that my retreat friends gave to me after we returned home- embellished with the beautiful Want2Scrap pink pearls. So, so special.
Be sure to visit the Want2Scrap blog for incredibly beautiful inspiration.
X-ACTO knives have been my No. 1 tool since my first job as a paste-up artist at an ad agency in 1983 at age 17. I have never been without one. So you know I’m loving that they would send exciting product from their new Designer Series -traditional tools with a sharp new spin so you can craft with precision and style.
……………………. SCRAPERFECT …………………….
ScrapPerfect’s Perfect Crafting Pouch was one of 20 winners of the CHA Innovations Showcase that I attended as a member of the press. I was so impressed by the demos they and their crew shared and I enjoyed wonderful conversation with ScrapPerfect founder, Amy Roszak (right) and her sister, Susan (left– who travels just to be with her sister at shows- I love that!). I came away from CHA sure that the Perfect Crafting Pouch was the one product I’d been looking for all of my crafty-designy life. I use it to keep ink from feathering and bleeding when I write wood or fabric. That’s just ONE of the many uses for these pouches. Although I could try to describe all the other incredible uses, I’ll let Amy show you in this video by Craft Test Dummies:
ScrapPerfect has several products for the crafter. They sent Perfect Crafting Pouches for the retreat scrappers… and for the giveaway bags, they share their Perfect Crafting Pouch Strap n Tap, Perfect Cleaning Cloth and Embellie Gellie. (Please note that ScrapPerfect will be on vacation March 26 – April 3rd.)
Thank you ScrapPerfect!
……………………. THE MAGNET SOURCE …………………….
The Magnet Source makes so many different kinds of magnets, I’ll bet you’ve used some of their magnets for making your own refrigerator magnets or other craft. They create magnets for everything from hardware, home improvement and automotive to craft & hobby, office & school to housewares.
They make these super cool, Super Magnets– neodymium discs. These rare earth magnets combine the powerful strength of neodymium, the strongest permanent magnetic material in the world with peel & stick adhesive backing.
Oooh, I love a super strong magnet! There’s a pack of Adhesive-Backed Super Magnets in every swag bag!
Thank you The Magnet Source!
