On the first day of CHA: I'm sharing big news!

CHA is officially in full swing! As I said yesterday, I am not physically there but "pieces of me" can be found if you look hard enough! You can find some of my projects in the Epiphany Crafts booth (#1239, go say hi!). If you go to the New Exhibitor Pavilion and visit Basically Bare in booth #1814 you'll see my latest adventure. What is that, exactly? Well first let's back track for just a minute..

I scrapbook and create altered goodies with paper, fabrics, and all kinds of textures. It makes me happy, and as cheesy as it may sound, "comforts my soul". I am not happy if I am not making something, and when I cannot physically sit down and create, my mind is constantly swimming with ideas. There have been many times I wished I had "just that right thing". Whether it be a shape, frame, flourish, or textured pieces to create with. Blank canvases ready to transform to match my specific needs...




Enter Basically Bare, launched in May of this year by Angela Pruitt and Carol Jackson. They are a family owned and operated manufacturer of fine embellishments and albums for the scrapbooking and paper crafting industry. Basically Bare products are alterable, which means they can be customized by the crafter to meet the artistic needs of their current project. You guessed it: I fell in love with their incredible goodies!

So now what does my big news have to do with Basically Bare? I am excited to announce that I have designed three new sets for them, and they are being debuted at CHA along with five other sets and a fabulous new album! This is a dream come true for me, seeing some of my ideas transformed into actual product! I have said this so many times over the past weeks, but I must again shout out a huge thank you to Angela, Carol, Candy, and everyone else involved behind the scenes at Basically Bare!

Would you like to hear about the new sets? Here are the names of the sets I designed:

Fanciful Frames
Climbing Ivy
Lovely Locket

Here are the names of the other new Basically Bare sets and album:

Bare Basics Blossoms & Leaves
Bare Basics Celestial Shapes
Stackabellies Holiday Ornaments
Welcome Little One Set
Up Up & Away Set
Bare Booklets – Simply Shapely

These new sets will begin shipping August 15th and as soon as I have photos I will share them. Again, if you are at CHA this week head over and visit the Basically Bare gals at booth #1814!! If you are a kit club or store owner and would like more information or an order form you can contact me at byondbzr@yahoo.com or the ladies of Basically Bare at info@basicallybareonline.com.
