CHA Day 2! Cathi!
no.7 on my list is: Plaid, one of my new favorite companies, as I used tons of Modge Podge in my projects from my book: Altered Art Circus...Every year I look forward to what Plaid is doing and I always get to see what fun project that Cathi and Steve have come up with, this year I nearly fell over.CHA Day 2! Me and Steve! 2CHA Day 2! Steve and Mom! We made collage shapes from the new podgeable shape cuts outs ranging from fabulous birds to royal crowns. I choose the crown of course, then decaupaged it with vintage style papers they had. Cathi had turned one of hers into a necklace, so I decided to hold onto my piece so I could go home, pierce 2 holes on the sides, some rhinestones and a chain to wear as a royal necklace. The photo above shows Cathi wearing her necklace... ( I borrowed the above podgeables picture from Cathi and Steve's blog)These new podgeable blanks are my favorite and modge podge, well to me, its always re-inventing itself, so it has to be another fave product of mine at the show, they have from matte, to gloss, to glitter to glow in the dark varieties, always something to choose from for your collage projects! Another great product I was introduced to actually last year are the Hot Glue Gun Helpers which have been a valuable asset to my hot glue gun, I no longer have glue gun burns because of this fab product, check it out here:
And now our famous Charlie's Angels Skit, lol!

Stay tuned for Cathi Filian and Steve Piacenza's new line of Podgeables for Mod Podge! Papers, Acrylic Shapes, Tracing Templates, Craft Mat and Hot Glue Gun Helper Finger Caps and MORE! They will be at Michaels Craft Stores starting in May 2012, so brace yourselves. You can visit Cathi and Steve's blog, website and Plaid at:
