CHA Paints: Delta Creative

Reported by Anam Stubbington

Delta Creative had some interesting new releases, our favourite being their new SOY range of stains and paints!

The Soy Paints range had a large colour selection, and the vibrancy of the colours was impressive. We were delighted to see that they are perfect for even young children to use. The sample Canvases they had on display were gorgeous at showing off the colour coverage.

Details from their website states:
Soy Paint uses pigment containing a bio-based soy ester resin and other recycled natural materials. Soy Paint is: • The first TRUE “Green” decorative paint on the market! • Non-Toxic and safe • Great for arts, crafts & home décor projects • Low-to-No VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) • Low odor • Easy clean-up with soap and water • Durable and long-lasting finish.

With the Soy Stains, we liked the velvet finish to the stains and the warm depth to the colours.

from their website:
Soy Stains have convenient wide-mouth jars makes for easy application • Works GREAT on soft woods such as pine – typically more difficult to stain with conventional stain products • Low odor • Long lasting, durable finish • Provides “Deep Penetration” on porous surfaces, also serving to seal & protect • Enhances the look and feel of the wood …as well as preserving keepsake items • Easy clean-up with soap and water • Premium Quality • Low VOC • Great for home décor projects

We feel these SOY Paints and Stains are a welcome addition to the Creative Paint industry and think that the quality and usability of the paints is right there with art acrylics, especially as they have no smell and come with an impressive claim to “prime, coat and seal” in one.

Reported by Morgan Novak

We R Memory Keepers have already captured our hearts with the Sew Easy Tool, and now they are drawing us even further in with the awesome additions they have made to the Sew Easy collection at this Winter CHA! We’ll let Jenn from We R Memory Keepers tell you all about the Sew Easy Tool and the new additions!

Here are the sweet cards that people were making while learning about the Sew Easy at We R Memory Keepers’ Make & Take table.

For the organization junkie in all of us, We R Memory Keepers have released an amazing new storage case that will easily hold your Sew Easy swag in one easy-to-grab case!

Here are just some of the 22 beautiful floss sets. We R Memory Keepers launched 12 new floss combinations at the show in glitter, variegated and baker’s twine. We heard a lot of ooh-ing and aah-ing in the booth over the baker’s twine!

The 8 new larger stitch piercer heads are all 1″ wide, and come with easy directions that tell you what order to make your stitches in so that it is, in fact, Sew Easy!

With so many new combinations to choose from, it will definitely be a hard decision, but what new stitch and floss combination can you not wait to use? We’d go with the baker’s twine and the banners. How about you?

CHA Scrapbooking: Hambly Screen Prints

Reported by Sarah Moore, Founding Editor

If you’re looking for what’s hot in papers, overlays and rub-ons, chances are you know who this next company is. The amazing team at Hambly Screen Prints never disappoints! When they shared a sneak of their new washi tape on the Hambly blog a few days before the show opened, people were so excited! We’re pretty sure it was one of the most retweeted and re-Facebook shared updates we’ve seen in a while!

We could go on and on about Hambly and the fun new papers, rub-on and washi tape designs, but instead I will just share a few shots from their always adorable booth. Enjoy, and remember – friends don’t let friends washi alone!

Do you use washi tape? What do you use it for? We love the new paper and overlay collections as well as the rub-ons – which are your favorites?
