So. I went to california (if you follow me on instagram (agirlandagluegun) you saw WAY too much of it….

but I was there with Daily craft vinyl to hit up CHA!

I saw some AMAZING fun stuff…

like spray paint chalk paint (YUP!)

and Giant washi tape from HAzel and Ruby (buy it at Joanns) (all the dresser drawers are the giant washi!)


and scented duck tape!!!! unnamed (1) unnamed and got to see some amazing eye candy! *you can go here to see more!

and my favorite booth was Heidi Swapp.

make pretty stuff

I kinda stalked it…just hovering– looking at everything. This has this amazing new foil (Minc) machine I LOVED. I literally went by everyday to just see it. anyways..her new marquee letters adorned the back wall…and I was smitten! smitten I tell you! I mean marquee letters are all the rage!

and Then I get home from California to find this box full of marquee letters!!! What? my dreams come true!! Actually..it was the Snap blog that made them come true! They sent me MY WORD (go here)  heidi swapp marquee I also got this gorgeous necklace with my word from charmed collections (their gold bar necklace is AMAZING!)

charmed collections necklace anyways…back to the marquee– It’s paper…well…cardboard or chipboard..or heavy duty stuff.

it comes with a template that you can decorate…so a… you can swap out colors or seasonal stuff.

and b. you aren’t trying to measure inside the marquee.  marquee letters

it comes with lights and bulbs and it’s BATTERY OPERATED!!!!

which I love cause you won’t have to hang it up by a plug and won’t see any cords hanging down it!

I ended up just using BE…cause I didn’t know where I would put the whole BALANCE. light up marquee letters

 but I love it cause  BE goes lots of different ways! be marquee letters

be amazing

I added some Daily craft Vinyl to finish off the saying…and they are just painted blue…and you will see this whole fun wall I’ve made on Monday (ohhh..intrigue!)

marquee letters

you can score your own marquee letters HERE or at your local Michaels stores (I’ve heard the letters are sparse in stores…ie BIG HIT!)

and you can fancy these babies up with washi tape, decorative scrapbook paper, glitter, paint…or really…leave it as is…they are soo cool! with that I leave you with some major fun eye candy….
