I’ve got another collection of bright, colorful, and fun booth photos ready to share with you!
Our first stop on this tour is Bella Blvd, whose booth was full of playful designs and fun patterns such as those found in their Halloween line, “Too Cute to Spook.”
Bella Blvd didn’t miss any details with this one, even adding lightning bolts to their signature cloud paper.
Bella has new colors of chipboard alphabet stickers, as well.
I heard lots of good things about Bella Blvd’s new “Making the Team” collection out and about on the show floor. So many CHA attendees said they were happy to see a sports themed collection that featured fun colors and manageable patterns and that also wasn’t too masculine to be used for girls’ sports photos, as well.
While there aren’t any new shades of letter stickers for this line, Bella Blvd did make entire sheets of coordinating chipboard numbers to help with recording scores and jersey numbers.
“Finally Fall” is Bella Blvd’s happy autumn line, filled with bright oranges and turquoise contrasted against plenty of brown and woodgrain patterns.
Bella Blvd chose a nontraditional color palette for their “Christmas Wishes” line, mixing reds and greens with bright pinks and blues. The penguins are just too cute!
Bella Blvd’s “Sophisticates” line of basic papers and letter stickers was introduced at the last show, but I love it so much (and it’s been so popular) that I wanted to include a couple of photos of it along with the new items.
Bella’s also got a line of coordinating rubber stamps from Unity Stamps.
Jillibean Soup’s booth was directly across the aisle from Bella Blvd, so it seems like a natural next stop on our booth tour.
The summer-themed “Watermelon Gazpacho” is one of Jillibean’s new releases and is filled with bright colors and fun, homey icons.
The new “Apple Cheddar Soup” is a perfect line for both fall and back to school photos.
I absolutely love these buttons, and those letter stickers pictured to the right? Jillibean Soup has started printing those and all of their stickers and tags on matte paper instead of glossy!
Jillibean Soup’s “Christmas Eve Chowder” is another great nontraditional Christmas line from the CHA Summer 2011 show. Like in Bella Blvd’s line, pinks and blues are also mixed here with red, green (and penguins!) for an adorable result.
Jillibean also introduced “Homemade 6 Bean Soup” at this show. This line has a home-y feel about it and has a strong sewing theme.
Jillibean’s “Sweet and Sour Soup” is another line that is versatile enough to use for back to school or a variety of other subjects.
“Hearty Barley Soup” shows off what Jillibean really does best – kraft paper!! I’ve never seen a Valentine/love line printed on kraft, and I’m quite excited about this one!
Oh, and do you see that woodgrain paper? It actually has little hearts right in the pattern!
Jillibean Soup also has a great line of basics. These “Soup Labels” are going to be a huge hit with both scrapbookers and cardmakers.
And I really love this baker’s twine!
Jillibean has also introduced a new color (red) to their line of corrugated alphas, perfect for holiday projects.
And you can now purchase plain corrugated sheets, as well!
I’m very excited about these new chipboard alphas.
Let’s take one last look at some fabulous projects in the Jillibean Soup booth before moving on…
Doodlebug Designs built a Christmas wonderland right in the middle of the CHA show floor.
Their booth was so well done, in fact, that it won an award from CHA for Excellence in Exhibiting at the show!
One of Doodlebug’s strongest offerings this show is their line of basic embellishments. They really know how to rock the brads, buttons, and bling in every color of the rainbow!
Doodlebug has a new build-it-yourself card line, as well, and it sports their signature color palette in a variety of cards and embellishments.
And did you spot these little guys on the rack? Doodlebug is now making baker’s twine on adorable 2” spools!! I was so excited when I spotted these that I immediately grabbed Scrapbook Update editor Nancy Nally by the arm and dragged her into the booth to rejoice with me. [We definitely geeked out over baker's twine at CHA! Keep your eyes peeled for an article all about nothing but baker's twine coming soon on Scrapbook Update! -- Nancy]
Look closely at the last two spools in this frame – they are black/orange/white and red/white/green combinations for Halloween and Christmas! So fun!
Doodlebug is also getting ready to release a new line of alphabet stickers in a baker’s twine pattern – be still my heart!
Doodlebug rocked the paper releases at this CHA, too. Their “Classic” collection would work well with any of their other releases.
“Santa’s Workshop” has one of the brightest color palettes of any holiday collection at the show, and super cute icons to boot.
Doodlebug’s “Colorwheel” collection combines bright, cheery colors with tight floral patterns.
And did you happen to spot the matching twine?
“Monster Mania” is Doodlebug’s Halloween collection, featuring bright oranges and purples contrasted with black.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this stop on our CHA booth tour. I still have hundreds of photos to process, and who knows where we’ll go next?
