Melissa here blogging from Anaheim, California. It's Winter CHA 2012 and I am having a blast down here checking out all the beautiful new releases from manufacturers. This is my first Winter show. After being at the Summer show two times, it is weird for me to see Spring and Summer colors and patterns. I am so use to seeing collections for Fall and Winter. So this is quite the life for me right now. Being a sunny, warm place and viewing product that gives off a lovely warm vibe.
I thought I would share a few photos with you...
American Crafts has some beautiful new flowers to enhance their collections. Love the colors. They also have new alcohol based markers that color and blend like the dream. The price point on these is very low. I believe they are about $.2.50 a marker. Don't quote me completely on that but they are going to be EXTREMELY affordable.
Crate Paper is always a hit for us. Storyteller is my favorite from them I think.
Loving the alpha sheets!
I cannot get over these frames. They are just beautiful and I see so many possibilities! Leave them raw, alter, frame a photo, do spots of patterned paper or journal inside.
Check out these new Tiny Text stickers from Cosmo Cricket! They are so perfect for the "Me" scrapper than I am. I need several sheets of each please. :)
I am in LOOOOOVE with all four new collections from Lily Bee. This is a must stop booth for me at these shows. These papers are a clean and simple scrappers dream. They are also perfect for creating handmade embellishments... you know... with the Cameo. :)
This is just a little taste into all that there is to see at the Winter show. You can find more photos on my blog - The Profound Brunette. There are more photos from Pink Paislee, My Minds Eye, Basic Grey, etc. More will be coming from Teresa Collins, Echo Park, Nikki Sivils and others.
