Make it with Smoothfoam!

 I recently attended a Craft and Hobby Association trade show, also known as CHA.
 There I had the privilege to demo for Smoothfoam!
I absolutely love working with Smoothfoam. The possibilities are endless in what you can dream up.

 Between answering questions about the product and demonstrating techniques, I had a blast!

 Here are 2 of the 3 succulents planters I brought for display. You can view the tutorial on how to make these here.

Look at all the amazing projects on display!

 Remember my Creepy Voo-Doo Spider Dolls?

 What about My Spooky Halloween Tombstones?

 More samples to share.

 Loving this SteamPunk piece.

 Some of the Holiday ornaments you see in the photos can also be seen here.

 New Smoothfoam frames...on sale soon!

 12x12 decorated squares. So so cool.

 All the displays tutorials can be found on the Smoothfoam blog!

 I even ran into friend, Lisa Fulmer. She's the author of this book.

It's full of anything and everything you wanted to know about working with different types of craft foam. So many inspirational ideas. You can purchase her book here.
