Day 2. Wow. So much to see and ooh-and-ahh over today. The Kid and I wandered the floor doing make-and-takes, meeting the owners and designers, and just enjoying all the new products available to buy. I'll show you just a few of the booths in this post, and I'll post more later. I'm thinking these CHA posts might come daily for a few weeks, just because there is SO much to show you! Remember, these pics are to show you some of the best of the best. If you want it (or don't want it), let us know! Leave a comment on the blog, and be entered into a random drawing for scrapbooking goodness.
1. Cosmo Cricket: The first thing that excited me about their cute booth was seeing that Tiny Type still exists. I was thrilled! I buy Tiny Type like candy and use it on just about every layout I make for myself. And now they come in more than the traditional black, brown, and cream. They now have CLEAR letter stickers with the letters printed in color! Yippee! In addition to the Tiny Type, you'll see some lovely, vintagey papers and embellishments, including some Tiny Type-esque word stickers.
2. Queen and Company: I haven't seen much from Queen and Company in the last few years, but this year they have hit the trends spot on. Every manufacturer this year is selling coordinated Washi Tape. Don't know what that is? It's decorative masking tape from Japan. Comes in all kinds of designs and colors. And Queen and Company seems to have the most variety of any of the booths so far. They desined their tapes to coordinate with Bazzill and Coredinations cardstock, so that you aren't limited by coordinating with a certain paper line (although they do have a few of these, too ;). You can coordinate with anything you have! Brilliant!
3. And now for our last booth in this post...Prima: Prima is known for it's beautiful paper flowers and rhinestone embellishments. A few years ago, they branched into paper lines as well, and they've expanded on these for this show. Their lines are timeless, soft, and beautiful.
Ok! There you go for now! Remember to leave a comment, and I'll be back later to share some more crafty goodness!
