I’m home sick again today, but I wanted to share a few things that I saw at CHA. First are two new paper lines from Crate Paper, Samantha and Baby Bee. This is one of my favorite paper companies! Such fresh, fun designs and color combinations and the texture is like nothing else out there. My friend Sam and I were joking around because the Taylor collection of Crate paper is being retired and replaced by the Samantha collection. Taylor is out and Sam is in! 🙂 I also got a picture of a few design items from the Crate booth. The first is a real leather purse covered with paper. It wouldn’t be very functional, but isn’t it cute!? And that cowboy boot… again, not very functional but absolutely adorable! I was also impressed with the setup of the Crate booth. The paper was displayed on wooden towers, very rustic and outdoorsy. You guys wouldn’t believe the work that these vendors go to to make their displays creative and inviting. Some had big couches with fluffy pillows (which looked mighty good after a long day on my feet!), and one was even set up to resemble a kitchen with the person working the booth wearing a cute little apron. I saw the most adorable dress made completely out of paper at the Doodlebug booth. So cute I wanted to take it off the manequin and wear it myself! *wink* I was also able to get a few photos at the Provocraft booth. I could tell the Cuttlebug is a hot product right now because I could barely squeeze myself in to snap a few pics. I only got pics of embossing folders, but here they are. I think you can view all the new products on the Provocraft website now that CHA is over.
So I think that’s about all I have to share from CHA. I would really encourage anybody who has an opportunity to go to CHA to snatch it up! It’s so much fun and really opens your eyes to this part of the industry. I’m going to retire to the couch now and hopefully I’m feeling up to being creative by tomorrow! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
