Creativation Wrap-Up and a LLAMA

I'm back from Creativation (formerly CHA and I hear it's going to have yet another name next year) and SLOWLY catching up.

Being at an event like that is like being on a diet at Thanksgiving. There are so many fun, creative things to see and yet you can't make or buy anything!

We worked long days - we actually only had about 90 minutes each to see the show floor, so we had to sort of sprint through - but we saw amazing things on that sprint!

Here are some of my favorites.

The whole album of my photos is public, so you can see it here, along with some brief notes. 

But MOST importantly - I was helping out my friends at My Sweet Petunia, and they introduced some AMAZING MISTI accessories at the show, which helped me bring you a little party llama today. Please note - the Delicate Details stamp I used for the background is ONLY available as a free with purchase set during Sale-A-Bration. I thought it emulated the papel picado look in the set and it was perfect for my party llama. Link to the full stamp set images below the card photo.

The first product is the Creative Corners - which are a set of five magnetized and non magnetized tools to increase the capabilities of your MISTI.

This just doubles the revolutionary nature of the MISTI by giving you additional interior corners and alignment tools. These are available for pre-order now for $15 - video below. They ship next week.

THEN, there is the most incredible bag EVER. It will come in three color schemes - pink trim with pink logo, aqua trim and black trim with a grey logo. I LOVE THIS BAG. You would not believe how much you can fit inside it! It's the ultimate craft on the go bag, with a great price - $30. That ships in March. There's a great video of the details of this bag here. I'm super excited to bring this to my class next week and show everyone.

THEN - there is the upgraded grid paper. The paper is heavier weight, so it won't crumple in the corners, and the grid is now printed on both sides. I LOVE IT.

I should be quiet and let you see the video now though, eh? So you can actually see how all these things work?

I love it when smart people invent smart things.

I hope you have an awesome weekend - I'll be at our annual Blogathon event in Austin - where I will be teaching bloggers how to stamp! :)
