CHA make-n-takes and giveaways

There were so many make-n-takes, demos and giveaways at CHA.  I wasn't able to do many as we were only there two days for checking out all the new products to order for the store, but I did manage a few.

This fabric flower pin was from Hero Arts - it's one of their new flower stamps stamped on patterned fabric. 

This was a giveway at one booth (can't remember which, but it was a quilling company).  Apologies for the out-of-focus photo but these are the tiniest, sweetest roses nested inside a one-inch pendant.

I made this necklace at the Ideaology booth using many of Tim Holtz's new charms.  I just noticed that the typewriter key with my initial is missing!  We used his new drill punch to make the hole in the wing charm and his jump rings to attach everything to the chain. I love his jump rings as you can open them with your fingers - no need for pliers.

This is a layered paper flower, misted generously with two colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.  The scalloped and punched circles are actually die cut coffee filters that are now being sold in packages! I've been using coffee filters for flowers for years - too bad I didn't think of packaging them!  These great new papers are from Fancy Pants.

Another flower stamp from Hero Arts (I'm loving their newest release!). This is embossed in white on cardstock and the blue colors are all Perfect Pearls. This shimmers beautifully in real life!
 This little piece uses encaustic wax from EncaustiKits.  I've worked with beeswax before but this was even more fun with different colors of wax.  The black and white image is a transfer directly into the wax. I loved that technique and will be trying more of it!
 This darling banner was the Maya Road make-n-take taught by Lisa Pace.  This was the most generous one I saw there!  We were given an entire box of goodies including what you see here plus an entire tin of chipboard letters, two bottles of Maya Mist, more flowers, chipboard shapes and trinket pins, a clear stamp set and sticker sheet. Everything was pre-cut and misted except the chipboard letters.  These take the Maya Mist beautifully and don't take much to achieve fully saturated color.

 This is a sweet little mobile from Sizzix (? I think).  The bird shape and wings were covered on both sides with fabric and die cut.  The little clouds are die cut canvas.  The flowers on the wings are several layers of diecut coffee filters with a button in the center.
