Hey everyone! Kim here with a fun little product share! When we were at Creativation, with the Creative Scrapbooker Team, in January, we saw this neat flower making tool called Fablossom. This product was being demonstrated with fabric and my first thought was ‘I wonder if it would easily work with paper?”, a few steps down their booth they had the paper version! SWEET! The kit itself comes with everything you need to make plenty of different flowers, The instructions are very easy to follow, once you get a handle of the paper folding you are good to go!

Hello, Connie Nichol here with  more photos from some of the lovely booths at Creativation in Phoenix last week. The Chameleon Pens booth displayed their unique and innovative colour tone pens and color tops, pencils and Blendy pens .  The artwork that can be created with these pens and pencils is truly stunning!  I am inspired every time I see what can be created.

Hi there, Connie Nichol here freshly back from Creativation.  Creativation, formerly known as the CHA or the Craft and Hobby Association show,  is a mega conference and trade show highlighting the craft industry.   Vendors associated with paper crafts, art materials, paint, jewelry and bead supplies, needlecrafts, sewing and many other creative hobbies come together to show their products,  especially anything new for 2018.    This year, it was once again held in the Phoenix Convention Center.   The building is bursting with colour and creativity and inspiration is around every corner.  Here is a quick photo journey of some of the exciting new products, projects or booths of some of the companies that I visited on the show floor. The Simple Stories booth is always a super fun and colourful place to visit.  They have a number of new paper lines  that will be launched next month and later this spring.  I…
