CHA Favorites - Stampers Anonymous

 Hello, Memory Bound Friends! We're continuing with our series of posts about the recent Craft & Hobby Association trade show, also known as CHA. We had so much fun at the show that it has taken us all a few days to recover! We are excited to share everything with our Memory Bound friends!

One of our favorite stops at the CHA convention was the Stampers Anonymous booth. Stampers Anonymous is a company which features stamps designed by several artists, including Tim Holtz.

We were all very intrigued by Tim's new Blueprint stamp collection.

Click on the photo below to see the original drawings for this collection! While watching Tim demo a new product at the Ranger booth, Kellie asked him how the collection came about. Tim explained that he had been working on a snowman drawing but hadn't come up with exactly what he envisioned in his mind when his business manager Mario's son spoke up and offered to give it a try. Mario's son had never drawn anything before but in just a few minutes produced the perfect illustration. Tim tweaked it on his computer and before the evening was over, they had produced the entire collection of drawings for this new line!

Here's a card made with his original snowman design.

 The autumn stamps include fall leaves and a wonderful acorn.

The winter stamps include the snowman, a great Christmas tree, a beautiful snowflake, and an adorable wooden soldier.

Of course, the stamps can be used on cards, layouts, and all kinds of home decor projects.

Stampers Anonymous has also released some of the classic stamps from years past in convenient cling-mount form. We all love the little goblins which are included on the Halloween set.

And this compass is perfect for travel projects.

We loved the new collections released by Darcie's Stamps. The rounded metal "buttons" match the stamps and add the perfect touch of dimension. Trust me: They could not be cuter!
Look for these and so many more great new products -- soon to be arriving at Memory Bound! If you see something in our posts that you don't want to miss, just give us a call at (515) 965-1102 and we'll reserve it for you.
