Scrappers who are fans of all things vintage and sophisticated are going to love this next set of booth photos featuring Jenni Bowlin, Teresa Collins, and Cosmo Cricket!
Jenni Bowlin’s signature vintage style was reflected in her booth decor – it was absolutely stuffed to the gills with her signature antiques!
The Red and Black collection has become a tradition for this company as they release an extension each year that incorporates new designs while at the same time staying true to (and coordinating with) the line’s original look and feel.
Isn’t the chunky font on these days of the week stamps wonderful?
These reproduction divided cigar boxes are a new item that Jenni Bowlin debuted at this show. There are so many possibilities here ranging from home decor to gift wrap…even storage (imagine that)!
Jenni’s Christmas line is full of traditional reds and greens with vintage holiday icons scattered throughout.
And the Jenni Bowlin Halloween line is also fabulous, with its vintage imagery and playful patterns.
Jenni Bowlin is also updating her signature product line with Ranger by adding three new colors to the ink pad and paint dabber line – Lavender Sachet, Weather Vane, and Speckled Egg – while retiring three others (Chicken Feed, Chili Powder, and Soap Powder).
These doily flowers really caught my eye as an example of some of the timeless and innovative embellishments that this company continually produces.
The ever-sophisticated Teresa Collins had three new collections at CHA Summer 2011. “World Traveler” is my favorite of the bunch – anything with a map print is sure to catch my eye, and it was a major trend at the show as well.
Teresa has some lovely brads and bling to match each of her lines at this show, as well.
And of course, Teresa Collins is known for her signature damask papers.
“Christmas Home” takes all the elements you’d expect from Teresa Collins – home decor icons such as chandeliers, rich damasks, and bits of bling – and combines them into a lush and lovely line.
I love the bling centers on these snowflakes!
Is that baker’s twine that I spy at the top of this trim card?
“Haunted Hallows” puts a spooky twist on Teresa Collins’ signature style.
Damasks are a huge trend for Halloween this year, and of course they are Teresa’s signature.
“Notations” was Teresa Collins’ mid-year release, bringing patters from her popular Notations mini album kit into a 12×12 format.
While no new Blingage was debuted at this show, it continues to be one of Teresa’s hottest items.
We’ll wind this tour down with a peek into the Cosmo Cricket booth. The veteran company brought two new lines to CHA Summer 2011, including their new Christmas release.
“Clementine” features a spring-y color palette not often seen at Summer CHA shows, but Cosmo seems to be on the same page as Pink Paislee (with their Nantucket debut) and Echo Park (with Victoria Garden) in introducing this type of line at a show normally dominated by Halloween and Christmas.
Cosmo Cricket has changed up the way they package their popular Doilies and Butterflies embellishments, electing to deliver them as a sheet of stickers instead of the package of die cuts shown at the Winter CHA show.
Cosmo Cricket went completely vintage with their “Dear Mr. Claus” holiday line, sticking to an almost exclusively red and green color mix accented with whites and blacks.
The third line in the Cosmo Cricket display was the mid-season “Odds and Ends” release that is already on store shelves. This line is also heavy on vintage icons and has been a popular line since its release.
