Hooray! It's CHA!


Hi everyone! I'm so excited that CHA has finally arrived and I can start showing you the projects I created for Tim Holtz/Idea-ology/Sizzix/Ranger/Stampers Anonymous! I had a blast working with so many amazing new products - there are some truly innovative things that you'll wonder how you ever lived without! I had big plans to have all kinds of posts ready to go before CHA, but I was so busy with sample making, I just didn't have time! I did want to share a quick pic one of my favorites - my first ever Configurations box.

When I received the new Stampers Anonymous Apothecary and Mini Halloween 3 stamp sets, I knew I wanted to make some sort of grungy cabinet to display them. Once I started pulling all the different pieces together - the awesome new Bell Jar die from Sizzix, Idea-ology Corked Vials, Drawer Pulls, and more - my Configurations box turned into a bona fide traveling apothecary! Oh, and how cute is that new Mini Lantern?! I apologize that I don't have more pics to share yet. I will try to get more today at the show and I'll definitely do a full post when I get home.

If you follow me on Twitter, I'll be sharing lots of photos of all the cool new products. And, if you're at the show, please come and find me - I'd love to meet you!

Many of the supplies I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Be sure and use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10% off your order!

  4. hello Shelly,

    I just finished my first configuration box with a collection of my vintage officesuplies.
    Next project was to make an "apothecary" for halloween as I have real vintage bottles for injections, injection needles, bandages, old pillboxes,... I want to use these combined with halloween stamps and stuff, so YOUR apothecary will be used as a reference and inspiration !!

    Damn you don't have more pictures yet, just a teasing one :)
    I'm looking forward for more pictures for this one.

    One of the new dies I preordered is the glass bell and on Tim's blog I told I was curious to see what he, you , Tammy or Laura would create with it.
    So, you fulfill my wishes !

    Tonight I'll be searching the internet for videos for CHA !
    I'll never be able to attend it, but the videos give me the feeling I've been there somehow :)

    Have a good time over there, enjoy and share !!
    greetings from belgium

  31. Do you just giggle all the time? Because when I do something that is this good, I giggle! (I don't giggle all that often but still...)

    LOVE IT!
