Here’s another highlight from the CHA MEGA Show:
Designer Richard Garay’s catch phrase is “make amazing happen,” and he does that with his new collection of stamps, dies, papers and accessories.
You may have been introduced to Richard through his Celebra’tions™ line, first shown via Spellbinders. He’s expanded the line and also branched out into several different looks, from spritely florals to outdoorsy lumberjacks.
“I don’t want to get locked into one style,” he explains.
For Richard, it’s all about the party! Check out this fun look from his booth:
The Celeba’tions™ line has everything you need for a party, from balloons and banner stamps and dies to a fun new box die for party favors or gifts.
And check out these flowers!
Lumberjack Days is more than just plaid shirts and manly beards … it’s all about outdoor images, include trees, flowers, animals, etc. One fun set is the Great Outdoors die, which punches out pieces perfect for a 3D scene or a child’s school diorama. The Knitted Pattern and Pine Needles embossing folders caught my eye for next winter’s cards.
The Make Amazing Happen Collection has some great affirmative phrases, such as Brave You, Make Amazing Happen, and Be Amazing.
Noteworthy, with a slightly vintage flair (what he calls “modern vintage”), is built for corresponding with cute envelope, telephone and other designs, including some fabulous paper in shades of khaki and black.
As for accessories, I like the matte finish enamel dots as a little change from the shiny ones. They’d be great on more masculine cards.
