CHA-S favorites

Here is a look at the latest product coming out over the next few months. Not all of it was new at the show. But they were my favorites.
JR CL 02100 Vintage Oval Labels PACKAGE
JustRite Stamps Signs of Life
Love this stamp set! How beautiful to be able to hang all these signs.

JR CL-02125 Signs of Life PACKAGE
JustRite Stamps You are the Best
Very cute and trendy. Lots of layering potential! I am thinking fabric and canvas for sure! Look for a project soon.

Miss Nelly 6x6  Miss Nelly12x12
Kaiser Craft Miss Nelly (available early August)
This line is SO pretty. The colors are bright and fresh and one of my favorite combinations. And a huge thank you to all the companies for having 6x6 pads for all of us card makers! Look for a project soon.

PP wood shop timber letters
Pink Paislee Wood Shop letters
I love all things made from wood and this line of letters is just fantastic! Many possibilities, from stamping to ink to mists to stains and paint!! There are several fonts to choose from. And be sure to check out their new Mistables line of products too!

PP Vintage Vougue spool buttons
Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Spool Buttons
This was a fun collection from Pink Paislee. A unique color combination reminding me of my junior high days. This take on thread spool ends caught my eye right away.

an-abc-primer
Graphic 45: An ABC Primer
This is a sweet line of paper. It all screamed my name. Maybe it’s the former teacher in me. :)

school-days-2-250x250
Graphic 45: An ABC Primer, School Days
This paper was my hands down favorite of the whole line. Its going to be perfect with first day of school photos that will be happening oh, so quickly. I will have to break it out before then, so look for a project soon.

BG picadilly
Basic Grey: Picadilly
Bright, country in style, and fun, this collection has a ton of great embellishments, which should not be missed. Hero Arts has collaborated with Basic Grey to create stamps and those should not be missed either.

145x145_sampler-display-board-10
Basic Grey: Canvas, Rook Large Sampler
These are cool, they are a pre-designed canvas. It has the lines painted on in black, leaving you to fill in the rest. Click over to see more photos.

CD16023_6x6_PaperPad
Echo Park: Victoria Gardens, 6x6 pad
All of Echo Park’s new releases do not disappoint, but this one was my favorite. Soft and shabby, and look at that music note paper! Echo Park also has a great new Dots and Spots collection for Christmas.

October Afternoon: Farmhouse
This line has some fantastic colors, including yellow and grey, which is a personal favorite. And check out the Wrap pack, beautiful trims!

October Afternoon: Sasparilla
My little man is obsessed with being a cowboy and our recent trip to South Dakota just made it worse. :) It will be fun to use the embellishments and papers to create a mini album.

LF2079
LF2080 2
My Mind’s Eye: Lost and Found 2 Sunshine: Forever
Everything in the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found Collection 2 is beautiful, but I am in love with the Sunshine part. For the obvious color reasons. :)

6x6101
My Mind’s Eye: A Beautiful Life, 6x6 pad
My Mind’s Eye also released an entire collection of 6x6 pads, exclusively in that format. This is one of my favorite ones.

Weave Front OL
WR Memory Keepers: Sew Ribbon
This new tool looks like a ton of fun. It punches holes to allow you to thread ribbon into a pattern. There are several different styles. In a side note, I did not try this tool, so I have no idea its ease of use, or those details, just loving the idea of it.

WR Memory Keepers: Fancy Floss, Glitter Secondary
The Sew Easy now has baker’s twine and glitter floss. Yay!

Some trends that I spotted:
  • texture, lots of texture
  • flowers, flowers, flowers
  • purple
  • borders, the fancier, the better
  • sewing and quilting themes
  • turquoise in Halloween collections
There you go, just a few of the things that will *need* to come home to my house! Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!

Oh. My. Goodness. I am LOVING that Picadilly paper pad. And the October Afternoon....
I've got a question, is CHA open only to vendors or people with stores? What about us regular people? Is there soemthing similar we could go to?
