Several of the gals on the trip are members of the HSS message board. It was so much fun getting to meet them in real life!
The highlight of my time at the convention was meeting two Angels that were running the TAC booth. Their names are Jen Bluestein and Angela Miller and their booth was amazing!
I've had a really late night. I've completed three sets of swap cards in two days...I should've had these done sooner, but that's how things go sometimes, right? Here is one of the cards that I'm shipping off tomorrow. I'll save the other one for later.

Cha Cha is one of TAC's newest 12 x 12 cardstock collections! I love these vibrant colors. This fun little accordian fold book is an idea that comes from a magazine put out from Creating Keepsakes called Easy Patterns for Scrapbookers. I love this magazine! There are 136 projects created from 23 patterns. All the materials and cutting instructions are given.
Just a reminder that my Catalog Reveal party is THIS Saturday from 1-3pm. Click this link for more details!!
Supplies used for accordian book:
Cha Cha pattern cardstock from TAC p.10
red bazzill cardstock for base
bookplate (a sheet of tags and bookplates are included with the Cha Cha paper pack!)
brads and ribbon
word stamp from TAC's 'Label Words' set p. 75
flower images were cut from a sheet of the Cha Cha paper (fyi...there is a stamp set that coordinates with the Cha Cha set!! I don't have it yet, but it's on p. 10 of the new catalog!!)

How cute is this?! This is called Stella's Tote. The designer of this tote is Leslie Miller and you can check out her tote and tutorial here. I actually learned about this tote from my good friend Nancy Grant. Nancy made a beautiful Stella Tote and then led her blogging friends to Leslie. I'm so glad I tried this project. I'm so happy with the results. Thank you for sharing your design and tutorial with us, Leslie!! It is awesome!!!

I just received 180, 4x4 inch coasters and this is what I've created so far. In the past I've used matboard and chipboard. You have to get out your utility knife and try not to hurt yourself as you saw through. These 4x4 coasters make it so easy. These projects didn't take much time at all.
I learned how to make the coaster box from Taylor Vanbruggen's great tutorial. I came across the caddy divider from a lady named Lynn McAuley. (I wasn't able to find the site so that I can link you. I'll keep looking.) The coaster album is explained in this tutorial from Beate Johns. I will showcase the Crop-O-Dile with the coaster caddy for one of my demonstrations at my Catalog Reveal Aug. 18th.
There is a third coaster project that I came up with on my own, but it is a surprise! It will be offered as a free Make 'n Take at my catalog reveal party. I'll post pictures after my party.
