today, on the creating keepsakes blog, they are featuring our CHA product picks from the editors and dream team members that were at the show last week. we each picked one new product/collection that really caught our eye at the show. i figured it was a good time to blog about more of my favorite finds. these are really more of my favorite papers and collections. i'll have to do a seperate post on embellisments and other fun new stuff that i loved.
these collections were definately my top pick from the show! i love the colors to these three collections in particular. the patterns are just gorgeous and i love the thicker feel to the papers. you really have to see them in person to appreciate them. these images don't do them justice.
it was also really cool to meet lori whitlock at the echo park booth. i'm a long time fan of her silhouette designs. a huge part of my library is made up of her shapes :)
the neapolitan collection caught my attention, as soon as i got the first peek of it, during their reveals before the show. tell me that paper up there is not the cutest paper ever! i love the softer colors of this collection, and the dreamy sort of look to it. there are 24 sheets of patterned paper in this collection, and such a huge variety of embellishments to go with it.
i'll direct you back over to melissa's blog again, where she did a fabulous recap HERE of the dear lizzy booth. i really should have taken more photos at the show. but i think in the back of my mind, i knew that there would be lots of photos online that would look a ton better than anything i took. lol!
these paper garlands are so cute. there is also a butterfly garland, which is super cute. all the little pieces are stitched together already. so you simply pull off what you want to use, and attach them to your project.
dear lizzy neapolitan is already showing up in stores and online stores. i love when products are available so quickly after the show ends. i'm not a patient person, so i love that i don't have to wait too long for some of this new stuff. i have already put my order in for this entire collection :)
the my mind's eye booth was another huge hit for me. i have always loved their products, and they came out with another great release. they had several new collections. the first was the miss caroline collection, which is made up of lots of different themes, all within the one big collection.
my mind's eye papers are always gorgeous, and thick. i love thick paper. i also really love their embellishments. especially the brad assortment packs and all the die cut titles and journaling pieces.
i really love this new collection. there are two different color schemes in on the bright side collection. this one, with the great primary colors, is my favorite. i was actually obsessed with another MME collection in the booth, that i kept ohhing and ahhing over. and one of the girls i was with kept telling me "that's not YOU". she would lead me over to this collection, and say "THIS is you". lol! she's right of course. totally my colors. and yes, it's also on it's way to me already ;)
are you noticing the wide variety of papers and collections i was drawn too? heidi swapp is back, and she had a gorgeous new release. i was a big fan of heidi's stuff years ago, and still have lots of her old products. so i knew i would love the new stuff too.
she also has a travel collection. which could easily make be used for some great boy pages.
i could go on and on about paper collections. i just wanted to point out the ones that really caught my eye, and stood out in my mind, even after i came home, which is usually when everything blurs together for me. there are manufacturers that are always favorites to me, of course. bella blvd. jillibean soup. pebbles. crate paper. fancy pants. studio calico. october afternoon. yes, my list of favorites gets pretty long ;)
