Summer CHA 2012 – Days 2 & 3 (Amazing Tim Holtz Giveaway)

Hey There, So sorry I wasn’t able to get a post up last night about day 2. After I got back to the place I’m staying, I was so tired (although I stayed up until 1). I’m really weird but you all know that. Both day 2 and 3 were absolutely amazing just like normal! CHA is such a fun place to be until some cranky lady starts barking at you. I know this from personal experience. I took my picture with Tim and he actually gave me some pretty neat things to giveaway which I will include below. Of course I ordered from a few more companies. I think I ended up with Prima, Maya Road, Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz Line), Websters Pages, Graphic 45, Little Darlings Stamps (Saturated Canary Line), Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts, Studio Calico, Crate Paper and a few more. Basically I ordered a ton of new product for the shop. On with the pictures 🙂

The second picture shown above is a few of the new stamp sets that Tim has released. He has one called “Mini Blueprints” which was actually all hand drawn by Mario’s Son. The photo above shows the actual pencil sketches of these stamps! This was so neat to see in person. I also have a few other random photos of a project from Prima and the Studio Calico sign.
Me and Ted from Stampers Anonymous as well as Amy Tangerine from American Crafts! I love Amy’s Style, Everything she wears would be something I could see myself designing (I’ll have to hook her up someday!)
These are the new Saturated Canary for Little Darling Stamps! These are the cutest stamps ever and I have followed Krista’s blog for quite some time and was so pleased to see she partnered with little darlings to create these adorable stamps! I ordered them all!
I love that album Cari made with the new Donna Downey Coffee Cup album for Prima! I also snapped a photo of the pretty Studio Calico Mister Huey Mists! The last pic is of the Tim Holtz lanyards given away at his booth! I was talking to Tim and he handed me like 100 of these babies to include in the first 100 orders (when I start this promotion). HOW COOL IS THAT!!!

Today I have a pretty amazing giveaway for you. An Autographed Unreleased “Mini Blueprints” Stamp set by Tim Holtz will be given to one lucky commenter! This stamp set is absolutely lovely and I can’t believe I’m giving away mine but anything for my followers (thank you so much)! In order to enter this giveaway you will have to be a follower of my blog. If not, simply click the “Join this site” button in the left sidebar. Then leave a comment below. Comments will not be counted after Sunday, July 22nd at midnight.

CHA was great and I can’t wait until the next.
xoxo Drew

I would love to see you at some scrap event as a instructor in the near future! Maybe some of you design style would wear off! Well , as you can imagine , we are all drooling over these yummy stamps!

    Wow how lucky you where to meet amazing artist. Well I should said you are amazing artisit to.I enjoy Watching you on prima upstream site and your blog!!!

  16. July 20, 2012 / 5:19 am

Cant wait to see all the ideas you came up with from CHA! As always I know they will be awsome! Have been following along the CHA adventure and I see so many things that I want. I am a follower and a subscriber.


  17. July 20, 2012 / 5:19 am

    It looks like you had an amazing time. Yes, I’m a follower, and have enjoyed your reports. I’m sure everyone dropped into bed at night but were raring to go the next day. For as tired as you were, think how tired poor Tim must have been with all the workshops and everyone wanting a piece of him. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of him when he’s not smiling or completely engaged in what he’s doing. The stamp set looks great. It truly is a family affair, isn’t it? I’m glad to see that art runs in Mario’s family. He has a very talented son.

  18. July 20, 2012 / 5:22 am

    Good for you! You are amazing in your own right. Thanks for a chance to win the fab stamp set.

  19. July 20, 2012 / 5:23 am

    Drew. I’m super jealous of you getting to meet Tim. I found you on Youtube by searching Tim months ago and have been following you since, funny how this world works. I saw the picture of you both and told my husband I have to go to CHA, Drew just got his picture with Tim. Funny, but my husband actually knows who you two are since I talk about you both so much. Always Idaho Amy

  20. July 20, 2012 / 5:26 am

    Hey there…. I was so excited to meet you in Jinger Adams Booth. I had heard so much about you from my great friend. I saw you several times at CHA. I do have to say you are extremely talented, wow way to go! I absolutely would love to win this fantastic set from TIm Holtz. Thanks so much for the chance to win. Also can’t BELIEVE i wasn’t already a follower i sooooo thought i was but i guess there is a first for everything? hahahahaha good times:)

Amy has been a guest on round table with Noell and Izzy. I love to listen to her comments when she’s on. Reguardless of the topic she always seems to add valuable insight into the conversation.
    take care

  36. July 20, 2012 / 6:07 am
