During the past few weeks, manufacturers have been releasing sneak peeks of what they'll be officially debuting at the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) tradeshow, which opens in a few days. (Sadly, I won't be there. Perhaps again someday... )
It's been a lot of fun seeing the new stuff, watching for trends, and predicting what will be the hot items from this year's show. Even more fun is starting my wishlist! Here are a few of the items that have caught my eye.
- Echo Park's Designer Solids
- Bella Blvd's Designer Tape
I love these colors and I'm a sucker for polka dots. I haven't used a lot of washi tape, but I love the way it turned out when I used it to cover a tin.
- Fancy Pants' Swagger
- SEI's Diane
I love the colors and the small patterns of this collection. This isn't a very practical collection for me, since the only time I use these colors is for Easter and the annual pages I made for my goddaughters. But I love it anyway! It would make gorgeous cards... maybe I can justify it after all.
- Fancy Pants' Etcetera
I love a good basics collection. This one has great patterns and colors that will go with just about anything else.
How about you? Have you seen any CHA sneak peeks that have caught your eye?
