Following along on Twitter hash tags for #chasummer

There have been lots of posts while people are at the Craft and Hobby Association ( cha) summer show. So i have been following along with what is called hash tags on twitter. This allows for some good close to real time pictures ( from phones) and some interesting interviews and some fun scrappers to follow on twitter.

There are a few items that have picked my interest and a few items that I go - hmmn really I should have thought of that! like people are impressed with the quickcutz L - letter press and interesting idea, but having worked in the printing industry and knowing about ink I think this is an interesting idea on an old craft, Letter pressing was what you had done for invitations and announcements. A kind of embossing but a bit in reverse- along with other things like die cutting it is fascinating to me to see these " older " printing techniques become new again.

the slice from making memories was just announced to be able to use drawing tips instead of cutting tips- again making old techniques new again. like the plotters and large scale presses. What will come up again soon? I would like to haqve the slice I think but am unwilling to pay the full retail for it.

How about color? you know my Pantone obsessions- colorstrology and other color topics are so interesting. here comunicating with color
