CHA's Creativation 2017 Part 3

Hello again, and thank you truly for all the wonderful comments on my last two Creativation posts. Today, it's all about what I have to have...the goods. I am sure I missed a few, but these are my top picks, and in no particular order. Sorry to be an enabler!!! ;0) What do you like???

From Ranger:
Ranger's Texture Paste in Opaque Crackle- This stuff is fabulous, and needs no undercoating to work. It doesn't flake or crack off , and excepts color mediums wonderfully.

From Wendy:
I love her Mat Minis, and the new birthday ones made me swoon. I love the mini cupcakes and candles.
I can never have too many stencils, and I love the sentiments and coordinating stamp, and especially the stitching helpers, which I used on my Designer Challenge piece with Tim's Craft Thread.
I love Archivals and having them in mini form is a bonus for traveling...more space!

From Tim:
The Distress Oxides are a must have...the opaqueness of pigment and translucency of dye ink all rolled into one, and with the help of water the oxide look we all try for using a number of products, but with this only one product is needed. LOVE that!
It's no secret I love all things Idea-ology, and all the new embellies are a must for me!
You can never have enough stamps...right?!! I love the Hipster and On The Farm especially.
I cannot wait for the CityScape series of about versatile with whimsical or elegant options. I cannot wait to see everybody's uses with them.
I loved the Coats and Clark booth, and loved all the inspiring.
I have to brush up on my sewing skills, so I can use the new fabrics to make sturdy and beautiful projects.

From Dina
Her new Media Journal is way too cool with pages of burlap, heavy cotton paper, and canvas. So many people came to thumb through her sample. I can see this becoming an artsy scrapbook easily.
Scribble Sticks are a fun new pigment option. You can color straight from them, water color with them, and they even write on wet mediums..a big plus.
Since I shared Dina's demo space, I got to play with all her goods, and I fell in love with these three sets of stamps. LOVE!!!

 From Dyan:
More Archivals in mini form...oh yes please.
I love that her Creative Dyary is laid out all planner style, with pages to color and alter...super fun!

From Rose Mille:
I love vintage glitz and can never had enough Dresden. It transforms every project with it's own flair.
Yes please!
From Patty Pop-Ons:
You can never have enough substrates, and these are so different. There are a variety of cushy puzzle pieces that except and hold on to a huge variety of mediums.
...with Alcohol Ink pens.
...with Acrylic Paint.
From Eileen:
Eileen always has wonderful Sizzix mat board dies, and I think I own them all, but I especially love her new Travel Journal. You can make planners, journals, books, albums, note pads, etc., all from this one die. Jenny did a fantastic job demoing them, and sold me on the spot.
From Southern Ridge Trading Company:
Sharing with Emerald Creek, and introduced to me by Deb, was Southern Ridge Trading Company, and all their many many thicker than chipboard laser cut pieces. They have more designs than I could imagine, and the details were fabulous...a new must!
Can you believe all that detail in these flowers...WOW!!!
From Maya Road:

Cute and functional!!! Check out the stuff from the latest many goodies!

Again, sorry to be an enabler, but I just love these!!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
