CHA - H

I'm back again with my CHA review - today the letter H....


HAMPTON ART

I didn't actually get any photo's of the booth itself - strange....

However, lots of inspiration.....





Remember to click on photo's to enlarge them.....







What did catch my eye is their collaboration with Graphic 45 - they have three sets of stamps for each of the new collections at Graphic 45...

Curtain Call...



Once Upon A Sprintime...



Le Cirque....




HEARTFELT CREATIONS

Wow, Wow, Wow.....



A new company to me, and their first time at CHA....

They make stamps that fit perfectly with Spellbinders Nestabilities....

Blossom Nesties.....



Blossom 2 Nesties.....



And they also have a line of Nesties by Spellbinders made exclusively for Heartfelt Creations to match their stamps....



Here is some inspiration with their beautiful products - Stamps and Dies....









A demonstration of perfect die cutting and stamping....



This is Justin, he gave me the demonstration, and was enthusiastic and helpful at the booth...

I promised him that I would put his photo on my blog....



Here is the Heartfelt Creations team -

Justin
Linda
Emma Lou
Richard
(Lewis was missing for the photo...)
Thanks for all your help at the booth guys....



Part of my Candy was to be a set of Heartfelt Creations Dies and Stamps - but they're not here yet, so I'm afraid they will have to wait.....

I will do a couple of projects when I get the products and then put up the Candy...

I will also post the full demonstration of matching the stamps and the dies for perfect designs....


HERO ARTS

I took two of Hero Arts workshops at CHA - and boy were they excellent....

Here is Jennifer McGuire....



Also teaching were - Sally Traidman, Shari Carroll and Lisa Spangler.....



Diane and Enfys hard at work....LOL



And, the eight cards I made over the two workshops....


















HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD

A few photo's taken around Hollywood....

Hollywood Boulevard...







The Kodak Theatre - the Oscars are held here....



There were always cameras around....















Would you believe I was sitting next to Charlie on the bus....

Our apartment was on Melrose Avenue, just a five minute bus ride up to Hollywood Boulevard, and Charlie got on the bus and sat down, nice as you like (only in Hollywood)....

I later saw him outside the Kodak Theatre and he gave me a quick pose...





The shops were amazing - a couple of shots....





A wall mural.... How many famous faces can you identify?....



These were posted on lamposts and traffic signals everywhere....

I certainly felt safe the whole time we were in LA....



The famous sign itself.....

It was originally a real estate advertisement, but was never removed, and I don't think they could remove it now....



This hoarding caught my eye - looks interesting....




CANDY

Now, to the Candy for H....

A set of clear stamps by Hampton Art.....



And, a wee packet of bling from Hero Arts....



Just leave a comment, make sure you're a follower, and good luck....

Remember, all the CHA posts have Candy - don't miss any....

Hugs

Hi Jane, more wonderful photos!! When I saw your Heartfeld Creations photos I had to go dig out the stuff I bought this last Sept. at the CKC here in Texas... I loved their stamps and die cuts... But I just haven't had the time to use them yet... The flower in your photo looks like one I may need to add to my collection. I have the Innoscents Flowers Set, but this one looks different! I know my husband will appreciate you sharing this!!! LOL!! Have a wonderful day!!! Hugs!!
