Four Things + CHA Video

Here's a few products I'm loving lately and a short video of some things I really liked at CHA:

ONE | Hip Hip Hooray Stitched Circle Embellishments (Pebbles) because circle embellishments have long been a favorite. These are sweet and simple (and yes, you could make them on your own). Might be using these on a birthday layout sometime soon.

TWO | Sequin Arrows (Heidi Swapp) for all things "up."

THREE | Mini Stars Knock Out Punches (American Crafts) for making some of that great confetti I've been seeing around.

FOUR | Be Happy Follow Your Heart 6x6 Paper Pad (My Mind's Eye). Lots of love for these designs by Rhonna Farrer.

Scrapbook.com invited me to do a video while I was at CHA that highlighted a few of my other favorites from the show:






Still feeling a bit under the weather over here.

Trying to take it easy while still trying to get things done that must get done and finding a few moments to start the last book in the Hunger Games series.

    My advice? Finish what needs doing, then start the book ... you will not want to put it down once you start! How did you like the other two? Excited for the movie? I have that day blocked off on my calender ... will be there no matter what!

      For sure (!) get everything essential done before you open that book :) Might be a great way to get that rest you probably need.

    Loved your video, thanks for your top 5, who makes that 6x8 album, is it Simple Stories? I'm going to the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim, CA in a few weeks and I want to see if they have it there. Thanks.

    I read the Hunger Games series three weeks ago. Finished all three books from Thursday to Sunday- could not put them down. Hope you're enjoying them. I'm looking forward to the first movie on March 23rd. Thanks for all the daily inspiration. Love reading your blog.

      Totally enjoying them. I'm kinda savoring this last one vs. gulping it down because I want it to last a little bit (and I need sleep LOL). I'll definitely see the movie.

    Hi Ali,
    I hope you feel better soon! I was over at Hambly and could not find the overlays you showed in the video. Could you add a link?
    Thanks,

    I enjoyed hearing your voice in this video. I get to read your words on your blog often, but to hear your voice was a treat.

    I think that mini chipboard album is a must have. Love that there are page protectors included.

    Like these things -- will look for them too!

    Question on the overlays -- love them but not always sure how to use them -- especially adhereing them --- anyway you could do a post sometime on this topic?

    I LOVED the Hunger Games trilogy. My 13YO read the set when they first came out and now my 10YO is reading Catching Fire. We can't wait to see the movie when it comes out!!
    Enjoy and get well really soon!!!!
    Hugs,
    Suz

    Thanks for the peeks! I'm loving all of your choices and am also really liking My Mind's Eye and Heidi Swapp's new stuff.

    I hope you feel better! We've got the cold of death going through our house too.

    Sounds like your day is similar to Jamie's....she's at home with strep, reading Hunger Games, and I think she's watching a little Downton Abbey on the side. Sounds like it's going around. Loved your CHA picks...we have similar taste. I had held at least 3 of those things in my hands when I was at Archiver's earlier this week.

    Hi Ali,
    Hope you are feeling better.
    The Hunger Games series kept my two kids entertained during our 36 hour power loss recently. My daughter is pushing me to read the first book. Its next on my list.:)
