Day 5: CHA Craft SuperShow

By February 4, 2009General

(Click on the above image for a larger view!)

Do you remember Hint #2 and Hint #10 from last week?   I think those clues were perceived as some of the most intriguing by all of you, judging by the number of comments they received!  Well, today is the day that you finally find out exactly what we were hinting at!

You are cordially invited to Orlando, Florida for the very FIRST Papertrey retail experience in history!  That's right!  You heard it here first!  Papertrey Ink will proudly be operating a booth at the first ever CHA Craft SuperShow, July 31st – August 1st.  Many of you may have heard of CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) previously as the *IT* place to be twice a year to spot hot new products.  Previously, it was an event only for retailers and others directly affiliated with the craft industry.  This year they are adding a 2-day extension to their summer show that is designed exclusively for YOU, the consumer, to come in and purchase merchandise directly from all of your favorite companies! 
And this will not just be for paper crafts!  All other areas of the craft industry will be represented as well, such a fabric arts, beading, wood crafts, yarn & fiber works, painting and much, much more!  It is like having the opportunity to go to a stamping convention, but being able to see things from several different facets of crafting at the same time, rather than focusing exclusively on just one.  I personally find this aspect particularly exciting, since so many elements of other crafts are gradually crossing over into paper crafting!  As I always tell my friends, I've never met a craft I didn't like!
Raspberry Fizz
So you may be wondering what will be going on at the Papertrey booth and why you should come.  Well, for starters we will have nearly ALL of our exclusive colored products available for sale!  We're talking cardstocks, ribbons, inks and more *new* products that haven't been revealed yet! *wink*


You'll be able to see and TOUCH everything, all in one place!  In addition to all of our exclusive color collections, we will also have many of our stamp sets in stock and ready for you to take home to add to your growing collection!

We will be conducting FREE make and take projects throughout the two days of the show!  And we have asked two VERY special ladies to be in attendance to provide you with tutorials in person!  Our very own Michelle Wooderson and Debbie Olson!  Both of these amazingly talented women have SO much to share, teach and demo.  It will be like having front row tickets to the best show in the house!
Still not convinced?  There's one more enticing detail that I have left to share, and that is that there will be a limited edition, CHA show only stamp set available to show attendees!  This unreleased stamp set will have a retail value of $15 and any customer with a total purchase of $100 or more during the show will receive this CHA exclusive set for FREE!  This stamp set will not be available for sale before or after the show!  Now, how's that for exciting!!!

Oh, yeah!  And don't forget that Disney is nearby as well!  Just throwing in that little nugget of information as your wheels start turning, thinking of ways to convince your hubby to go!  Think family vacation with a *small* side attraction just for you!
To get you in the shopping spirit, We have planned an extra special giveaway today!

(Click on the above image for a larger view!)

A one of a kind embroidered shopping tote, perfect to use during your first Papertrey shopping experience if you happen to decide to join us.  The bag is completely lined and has a single interior pocket, perfect for holding your cell phone, keys, or………. a $100 Papertrey gift card!!!! You can choose to use the gift card at our grand CHA consumer shopping experience this summer (the $100 purchase would get you that free limited edition set too! *wink*) or use it online at our webstore at any time throughout the year.
All you need to do to enter to win this Papertrey Bag Prize Package is take us up on a little challenge!

Now doesn't that sound like a fun way to get your creative juices flowing?  Alter something as ordinary as a brown lunch bag!  Play with any of our lined coffee bags or glassine bags that you might have on hand.  Have fun experimenting with some of those Timeless Templates you may have already downloaded.  Or perhaps you want to work on your sewing skills and stamp your own fabric to create a simple tote like I did HERE.  If you feel especially inspired, you can create an all-new bag design and share the instructions with all of your online stamping friends! 

Whatever you decide, be sure to play along before 3am EST (midnight PST) Feb. 6th when the contest & challenge officially closes!  Link your project to this post by using the Mr. Linky Widget installed below. 

You MUST provide a link DIRECTLY to your project.

Any links that do not adhere to this stipulation will be deleted.

If your link has been deleted, feel free to submit again and add your corrected link to the list

One of the linked participants will be randomly selected to win the aforementioned Papertrey Bag Prize Package!  The lucky winner will be listed on our Anniversary Prize Page after noon EST Feb. 6th.  Good luck to everyone!!!


Michelle Wooderson has already created a project meeting this bag challenge!  Stop by to see it and have a chance to win it!  You won't want to miss out! 

Niki Estes has played along to!  And with a project that is just in time for Valentine's Day!

You can see a little something from Dawn McVey, using one of her bright signature color schemes!

And you just have to take a peek at the ADORABLE bag created by Betsy Veldman using the new popular Fresh Alphabet stamp set!

Geny Cassady created a special valentine bag project too, that is sure to inspire!

And wait until you see Melissa Phillips take on this challenge!

P.S. We are only attending the consumer portion of the show!  We are not going retail! 🙂

    Oh gosh, now to find time to craft a bag in the next 24 hours when I have to work all day and host the monthly poker game tomorrow. I have to figure it out though because that is like.. the best prize ever!! (ok the free stamps for a year thing is better… LOL)
    Seeing PTI at the show would be simply amazing, especially to be able to do a make and take with Debbie and Mish! I will spend the next several months pondering how to make that happen 🙂

    Holy canoli batman! Athough I have already had the awesome experience of buying PTI stamps (many many many) at a reatil store (MIB), I must say that it wouldn’t hold a candle to an entire booth, complete with cardstock/ribbon/omg more! I can’t wait!! Yippie!!!!!!!

    I’m glad you’re not going retail!!! BTW, were some of the buttons a new item?? Looks very close to colors you already have, and seems to me by looking at everything this yr. and talking to my cousins DD in Vegas, who is a fashion designer, things look bright and bold this season!!!!!!

    I am so excited to hear this fabulous new. I love the bag that you created. You make it look so simple. I couldn’t agree with you more, when you say that you never came across a craft that you never liked.

  • 22

    A fantastic challenge – I had a ton of fun making my bag – but I’d so love to swop it for yours!!! Lol.

    Congratulations on your Second Birthday BTW!!

  • 23

    Nichole! This has made my day! This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. When I went to CHA last summer, I wanted to meet you and Dawn, but didn’t want to bother you. I love the fact that they’re doing a consumer show and we can participate on a different level than retailers.

    I can’t wait to start planning the trip!

  • 24

    That sounds FANTASTIC! I would make the trip down… if we were in the States. My husband informed me that flying to the States for CHA was not going to happen. Whah! LOL!

  • 25

    What an exciting announcement….but I will have to be excited for you and for others. I’d love to come but must be with DH at his 40th class reunion in Sault Ste Marie, MI I can hardly get any farther way and still be in the continental US. I know everyone who can make it will have sooooooo much fun though….. Do you think they might consider changing the dates of CHA just for me???? LOL

  • 27
    Alisa Conner says:

    I have been trying for at least a year to find a way to go to CHA….that trip would be FAB. And even better now that my favorite stamps will be there. Hurray! Love the tote bag….but even more so the gift certificate. Woo woo! What a fun week this is. =)

    Holly Field says:

    Thanks so much for all the great prizes. What an exciting opportunity for you and the PTI team. Disney has a special military rate this summer, so just maybe I can convince my DH we need to take advantage of it this year:)If not, are you going to have your totes available via the PTI on-line store? Please, please!:)

  • 29
    Cheryl B. says:

    Darn! I wish I could go to Florida for CHA but DH just scheduled our family vacation for those days for us to go to Kentucky to visit some of his family that my dds and I have never met. That weekend was the only time his mom and DH could get off work at the same time.

    Another darn because I would love to participate in the challenge but it isn’t going to happen. I keep all my crafting supplies at my sister’s house and my car died this morning. There is no way I can walk to my sister’s house in the -2F temperatures we are having right now.

    Can’t wait to see what those of you who can participate create!

    Martha says:

    Oh, I am so bummed. I live in Atlanta and going to Orlando would not be too hard to do. But at the end of July I am in Michigan for our family vacation. I know I won’t be able to convince the family to let me go that far for the weekend.

  • 34
    Katy Frame says:

    YES!!!! I only live about 2 1/2 hours from Orlando so you can count on me being there! I’m soo excited! Michelle and Debbie are some of my favorite stampers and a chance to meet them, how could I pass it up? 😀 Not to mention the new PTI products right in front of my eyes! I love Papertrey! Now, off to create my bag. 🙂

    This is definitely my version of Disney World. I read your blog this morning and I’m still so excited I can’t stand it. I’ve got no clue how to post a link of any kind, but I’m pretty sure if I can swing a trip to Orlando I’ll have no trouble spending $100.
    One thing I couldn’t find was information regarding registration for consumers – if you know where we might find those details, that would be so helpful.
    Thanks for sharing this great news; I might have to make a Papertrey paper chain to count down the days.

  • 71

    It’s been fun looking at everyone’s ‘bags’. I had the CHA part right in my guess, just not the retail part. FUN.

    I woke up to find SCS deleted my project! So I entered it again. Even though it’s past deadline. Coffee lovers might like a peek.

    OH MY GOSH – I won the Tote and Gift Certificate! I’m beyond excited! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I’m definately going to save it for CHA since I live only 2 hours from Orlando so I can get the “limited edition CHA” set as well! Thank you so much!

    Ok, I posted my picture and then put the link to my general SCS gallery and not the specific picture of my altered bag. I am assuming you will be able to find it. Thanks for the contest it was a fun project.

    What a great contest! This is the second challenge I have entered (ever!)…Both in the same day! (the first one is the one on Lilybean’s Paperie!!)

    I wanted to sew a bag, but time just did not cooperate!

    So. Get a load of you. Whence dost thou jog, in your hawt Chairman Mao outfit and your uspeakably chic black Crocs with matching soccer mom man-purse? Are you sprinting from a grease fire at Dunkin Donuts? Did you just hear of a twofer sale at Tents for Tanks, a discount emporium for the fashion-conscious sperm whale?
