Highlights from CHA Chicago


Hey all! Most of us are back from CHA feeling rejuvenated, excited, and completely worn out. It was hot and sticky in Chicago but the air inside the tradeshow was alive and buzzing! I know I speak for all of the SRM attendees when I say that the highlight of the experience was *finally* getting to meet each other...


Deana, Kathy, Jenyfur, Nina


Tanis and Nina


Susan, Kathy, Laura (our amazing Art Director!), and Nina

The SRM Stickers booth was colorful and fun - it was great to see all of the product in one spot, especially our new stickers!




Retailers could browse the stickers and fondle Design Team cards and layouts...because, as you know, once you see SRM Stickers in action, you've gotta have 'em.






Susan and I taught a card class on Tuesday night, "Cards for Every Season"; 100 students (a sold-out event!), 15 cards, all new SRM Stickers. Whew!




I'll be back tomorrow with our July Challenge Winner/Guest Designer, and the rest of the week with more CHA highlights and fantastic projects from our Design Team! In the meantime, go check out what SRM Designer, Carole, did last week at her blog - she has some amazing Fall, Summer, and Holiday SRM cards for you! Carole is so talented, you'll love her (as we do!) and her blog will become a regular stop.
