CHA Pick #3

It’s so very hard to narrow down, from among all the amazing  paper lines and embellishments a few that you LOVE the most. I walk the show (never seeing it all) and make notes here and there.
What inevitably happens is that a select few "float to the top." After I have returned home and immersed myself once again in the craziness of my life, I pay attention to that handful of images that are still on my brain. Having explained this very unscientific process, I now share my …

CHA pick #3 Doodlebug Velvet Polka Dots!

You cannot stand in front of the new velvet flocked paper from Doodlebug and not reach your hand out to touch. These super-cool papers are so vibrant and texture-rich. I wish you could see the brown, the pink,  the green and the "Oh My!" orange — how on earth are you supposed to pick two or three? As soon as possible, I will be obtaining 5 of each. I want these papers to LIVE in my color files for a very long time.

Now, there are other flocked papers emerging and they are cool, but I’m a sucker for Doodlebug’s palette and polka dots? Can’t get enough.

I’m working on getting some additional images, so I can post several other CHA Favorites.

In the meantime, enjoy a chance meeting with Elmo …


how cute are they? And look how else I ran into …


silly me, why didn’t I get his autograph?

    Wow that paper is really great and it looks like you met a couple of interesting shall we say people!

  2. do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the beautiful papers, products, and fun stuff? If I was walking through there I don’t think I’d know where to start!!

  3. oooooh – Doodlebug is one of my absolute favorites! I can’t wait to see it and touch it myself. And I’m jealous that Paula got to hang out with Elmo. He’s my favorite, too!

    Ohh I love Doodlebug, and polka dots. But the tone on tone with velvet looks awesome!

  6. Darn it – wish I’d found Zac – I’d have taken a photo to make Em insanely jealous. As she tells us “I’m going to marry Zac Efron, only he doesn’t know it yet.” (She’s 15, and obsessed!)

    How come Doodlebug always makes me happy just looking at it? :) Happpy!

  8. I adore Doodlebug. Darci Loves Doodlebug — been there, done that!
    I love how they have kept their colors the same so year after year the new stuff coordinates with the old! I will be stalking my LSS for this stuff. Can’t wait.

  9. Michelle says:

    Polka dots and texture – two of my most favorite things! Will definitely be checking for new Doodlebug papers ASAP!!

  10. Hmmm, for some reason, i couldn’t see the paper. Bummer! Sounds awesome, though. I love their pallete, too.

  11. I am mad for polka dots. Can’t get enough of them. And now they have gone and done a polka dot with texture.

  12. Forgot to post about Elmo. Must be getting old I would so rather meet Elmo than Zac.

  13. Way TOOOOOO cute…! Elmo and Troy!

    The Doodle Bug paper is too cute! Is that who made your sweater too? Love the sweater too! How funny you “saw” Zac….I just hosted a HSM pool birthday party for my daughter…I should have invited him! Now seriously Stacey….where did you find the cuteie cardigan? Can I ask? Please let me know! (I think I will find the paper eventually!)

  15. I can’t see the paper either but it sounds great. And what a cute Elmo pic!

  16. I LOVE Polka Dots!!!

  17. I can’t wait to get a touch and feel of those papers! I’ll be on the lookout! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Tammy Clayton says:

    I think Zac was just as star struck running into you. You’re amazing. I’m sure he would have been happy to give you his autograph in exchange for YOURS!
    Thanks for all you do!

  19. love your adorable cardigan!
