CHA Paper Show Atlanta GA 2014

I attended the CHA Paper Arts Show last week with the owner of the local scrapbook store I design for Susan Moore of EMI Scrapbooking.

We expected a small show from the list of manufacturers attending but since we are local figured it was worth going to since we didn't have travel expenses.  The week before this show there was a small show in Salt Lake City UT so many who went to that show didn't attend Atlanta's show.

Susan reserved a room for us in the hotel for Wednesday night.  
Having everything all in one location was really nice.  
The room had a great city view.

It was really nice to not have lots of crowds in the booths when placing an order but there wasn't near as many samples to inspire you.

Seeing Madison from Echo Park/Carta Bella always puts a smile on our face.... he is so much fun

Susan ordered all their lines.  We especially loved the new thin metal dies & stamp sets

Some companies I hadn't been impressed with in recent years have really stepped up their game & I'm loving their new products!
Kaiser, Bo Bunny, & Jillibean all had strong releases that Susan purchased & will be coming into the store over the next several months.

I will be posting lots of pictures that Susan took of each line on the EMI Scrapbooking blog in the next couple days.

The "cash & carry" sale was a bit disappointing.  
I guess we expected the attendees to bring lots of old product to clearance out... with shipping charges that may not have been very cost effective but it could have been communicated better.

We did get some great stamps from a new company called Pink and Main.  We enjoyed chatting with Michelle & seeing her beautiful samples & products.

Thanks for stopping by...
