Hi everyone! Today is the start of the CHA-Winter show for 2014 in Anaheim, California. That means new product is being shown all over the blog-o-sphere, and I already have several standouts and thoughts on trends for the upcoming year.
I'm breaking my CHA post into two parts, as there's a TON of stuff to share. Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorites (so far). ;)
Here's my 2¢ on what I'm seeing for CHA-W 2014.
TOP 3 | Favorite Collections (So far)
TOP 5 | Favorite Embellishments (So Far)
My Mind's Eye | Just Splendid -Wood Dots
Oh, my word. These I need multiple packs of, STAT!
I'm so excited that there are shapes coming out in these enamel dots. Their size is great and I love all the colors they come in, and I'm a sucker for ampersands, so these speak to me a LOT!
What more is there to say, except, THANK YOU and I LOVE these!! basic, clean fonts and LOTS of them in a smal/medium size. Perfection!
These are just too fun and such a great font. Ampersands can look funny in some fonts, so this could have been a train wreck, but this turned out fabulous! These would look great on vellum, or transparencies, I think!
Top 5 | Favorite Pieces of Paper (So Far)
Heidi Swapp | Dreamy | kraft + white + triangles = LOVE
Isn't this a gorgeous wintery, paper!? I', in LOVE with the bits of kraft with the white and ombre efect in the colors, it's so, dreamy! ;)
This page is so clever and beautifully designed! I've always felt meh about music themed product, but this is just the bee's knees!
Crate Paper | Maggie Holmes : Styleboard | water color dots + ledgers
This, just appeals to me on so many levels and both sides of this sheet are fantastic. Love the texture, the colors, the composition, everything about this paper!
Crate Paper | Oh Darling | ombre polka dots
Can I have this paper in every color imaginable, please?
Several manufacturers have this very same pattern on their papers this season. Most are tonal but I just love this fresh colors in this piece, just lovely!
Arent' these fun! I'm seeing some fun trends out there, too and this weekend I'll be sharing more with you on those. For now, enjoy seeing everything that is sure to be hitting online all through the weekend! Fun stuff! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)
