CHA Day 1: Stampendous Make N Take

Having never been to CHA before, I wasn't certain exactly what to expect. I've certainly been to trade shows, but never for a retail-type business before. Each manufacturer's booth is set up rather like a store. Things are arranged nicely on shelves and displayed with samples, and things even have price tags on them. But nothing is actually for sale in a retail sense.

There are make-n-takes though. And a lot of them are really innovative. This was my favorite one today, from Stampendous. We stamped an image, using Versafine ink, onto an HP fabric transfer paper. Then we colored the image in with Fabrico fabric markers. Very cool idea to color a border around the edge of the piece of transfer paper, then cut along the edge with decorative scissors. Then iron on the transfer to a t-shirt. When cool, peel away the paper backing, then using Mrs. Glue washable adhesive, highlight the image with glitter. We're told that if you turn the shirt inside-out, you can wash it without losing the image.
