I was lucky enough to be invited to the CHA Convention in Chicago last month....and it was AWESOME. I was there promoting a fantastic new line of paper - Paper Layerz by Megan Elizabeth.
Megan designed Paper Layerz to make coordinting and layering your die-cut images faster, cheaper and easier. Each 12x12 sheet is segmented into 9, 4x4 blocks so you can cut out all the layers of an image from just ONE sheet of Paperlayerz. Think about popular Cricut cartridges like Create-A-Critter, Florals Embellished and Everyday Paperdolls. Imagine not having to dig through your scraps looking for coordinating colors or *gasp* having to cut into a 12x12 sheet just for one small piece. And here's another bonus: Paper Layerz is printed on Cut Mates Cardstock. Cut Mates is cardstock designed specifically for use in die-cutting machines - Cricut, E-Craft, Sizzix, Silhouette, Slice....perfect cuts every time without rips or tears. I personally cut hundreds of images in the 3 days of doing Paper Layerz demos at CHA last month and I never once had to re-cut an image. How amazing is that?!?!?
Here's some cards that I made using Paper Layerz. We had these on display in our CHA booth:
