More CHA Layouts & Cards...

I thought I'd share more Creative Imaginations layouts and cards from CHA. I had such fun doing this Western Theme. Rainee loves dressing up as a 'cowboy' any chance she has... so it was really fun using the Cowgirl & Buckaroo Collections by Debbie Mumm. I loved the colors, the patterns, all the fun run-ons and stickers... but along with these great collections, I was able to use their newest and hottest product... REAL WOOD!!!

I have to tell you about the new product from Creative Imaginations... it's making a lot of people's hearts go pitter-patter... it's their new wood grain paper... made with actual wood. It comes in two different woods, two different thickness and multiple sizes. You can cut it, emboss it, die cut it, punch it, stamp on it, use rub-ons with it AND put it through your laser or inkjet printer... this stuff is amazing... I had so much fun using it for some CHA samples.

If any of you are like me and you've tried to recreate the look of wood grain with pattern paper and with rubber stamps. And I love both, but they don't hold a candle to this Real Wood!!! Did I tell you it's amazing??? I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

It's actual wood... it looks like wood... feels like wood... even smells like wood.
I used a lot of rub-on with it... I loved how it took the embossing on the Cowgirl Round Up layout... I loved how well it took punches on the Howdy Card. I also wanted to see how it did with my Cricut... and it cut like a dream when I made my wood buttons on the Cowgirl Roundup layout. It's so great that there are two different thicknesses too, the thin is great for punches, the Cricut, and the thick was so nice, it's really substantial... yet you can still cut it. All in all it's just awesome product!!! So if you're looking for something fun to use on your next layout or card... you might just want to try... Real Woods!!! They're a dream!!!
