Next up on Scrapbook Update’s tour of the CHA Summer 2011 show are the booths of Bo Bunny, KI Memories, and Prima. All of these companies brought some fantastic offerings to the table!
Bo Bunny introduced several new lines at this show, including a very vintage styled holiday line, “Father Christmas”
All of the new Bo Bunny lines include some fantastic embellishments like these brads, trinkets, and buttons.
I fell in love with “Et Cetera” right away – the ephemera patterns are right up my alley, and I know I’m not alone in that!
These sticker sheets containing three sizes of alphabets, borders, and embellishment stickers are an excellent value.
Bo Bunny’s “Sweet Tooth” line has such a fun color palette! The pinks and turquoise blues really pop.
“Garden Girl” combines a rich plum tone (Scrapbook Update Contributing Editor May Flaum recently reported on the current plum trend in the industry) with a fun shade of coral and throws in some spring green for contrast.
Bo Bunny’s “Welcome Home” line features lush patterns infused with fresh greens and blues.
“Forever Fall’s” rich, gold-toned color scheme just screams to be paired with photos of fall leaves and pumpkin patches.
KI Memories had some strong releases at the CHA Summer 2011 show. Their fall line, “Good Folk”, has a warm, folk-art vibe to it.
KI Memories is another company releasing sets of elaborately patterned and decorated brads with each of its new lines. They’re also introducing their own patterned tapes that are printed on clear tape instead of the popular washi style tape.
KI Memories definitely went with the bright and funky color palette choice for their “Holly Lane” Christmas collection. The colors are so cheery and festive!
Fans of the old “Love, Elsie” line by Elsie Flanigan will likely find something familiar in the “Hot Date” collection. It features the doodled style and bright colors that Elsie’s lines were known for during her KI Memories days.
KI Memories also introduced several new styles of their popular “Pockets.”
The show floor was literally about half an hour from closing on the very last day when I visited the KI Memories booth, and many of the display layouts had already been packed up. The staff was very kind to get a few of them back out for me to photograph!
Prima’s booth was covered inside and out with their gorgeous new releases. The “Romantique” line is filled with soft colors and sweet illustrations in the classic Prima style.
The “Printery” collection is going to be a popular one! The neutral color palette makes it easy to mix with so many other paper lines and styles.
Prima’s “Londonerry” line features an antique-style palette and loads of vintage images.
“North Country” is a bit of a departure (though not an unwelcome one!) from Prima’s normal style. The colors are much brighter and the designs more clean and graphic than what we’re used to seeing from Prima, but I think it works very well for them!
“Alla Prima” evokes the colors and feel of the ocean with its aqua and yellow color palette.
Prima is, of course, well known for their massive selection of flowers and decorative branches.
Wood embellishments are a hot item in the industry right now, and Prima’s wooden spool top buttons are right on trend!
Prima also offered a large selection of resin and metal “Treasures” at the show, perfect for mixed media projects.
They also had several new styles of cling mount stamps on display to coordinate with the new paper lines.
Prima’s “Tiles” embellishments were generating a bit of buzz on the floor – another great item for mixed media and altered projects!
Resistant Canvas and Masks are perfect for those who like to play with spray mists and inks in their projects.
And of course the Prima booth was full of gorgeous projects from their talented design team. You really can’t appreciate the beauty and intricacy of these unless you see them in person. There’s a dimensionality that just gets lost in the photos, but I’ve tried to capture some of it here.
Prima teamed up with Lilla Rogers to create the new “Ruby Violet” line, targeted at pre-teens and younger crafters.
A selection of trinkets and baubles that snap into specialized necklaces and bracelets (no glue required) are available to mix and match into your own colorful creations.
“Ruby Violet” also features a fun, brightly colored paper line.
The booth tours continue on!!! Stay tuned – there’s a lot more to come!
