It’s ironic that the Die Cuts with a View booth is in one of Scrapbook Update’s final posts since its upside-down Christmas tree is the first thing that all CHA Summer attendees saw as they descended the steps to the show floor.
This tree and the others in the booth were covered in the most gorgeous paper decorations, made from both old and new DCWV lines.
Die Cuts with a View introduced a new line of personal stationery and decorative office items at the CHA Summer 2011 show.
“‘Tis the Season” and “Midnight Spell” (partially cut off in the photo) are two of DCWV’s back-catalog items on display.
My time at Glitz Designs was short, but I found so many lovely things in the short time I was there.
The “Beautiful Dreamer” line is a lovely pink-dominated collection with a sweet floral motif.
I simply adore Glitz’s “Teeny Alpha” stickers!!
These ephemera packs are from the “Vintage Blue” collection, as are the handmade flowers in the photo below them.
Australian company Grant Studios displayed two main product lines at the show – a range of children’s craft projects and some lovely papers by designer Grace Taylor.
Some of the designs in their lines are really lovely, such as this yellow sheet with a white doily print.
Many of Grant Studios’ papers are available individually, but they also produce 100 sheet paper pads with many of the same patterns.
This grey and black print was quite lovely and sophisticated.
Grant Studios offers a range of packaged die cuts, as well.
Shortly before leaving for CHA, I asked Scrapbook Update readers to chime in and let me know what they were most interested in seeing at the show. Several readers specifically requested to see Little Yellow Bicycle’s “Winter Twig” line.
I have to stop here for a moment and give a quick shout-out to Judy at SEI (the next booth on our tour). She gave me a wonderful overview of the new product lines!
SEI’s fall line, “Homestead,” features a rich orange, yellow and brown color scheme with an abundance of foil accents.
SEI’s Valentine’s Day line, “Promise Me”, is set to release in November 2011.
“Holiday Cheer” has one of the brightest color schemes of any of the Christmas releases that I saw at the show and is full of festive fun!
Cool blues and soothing browns are the hallmarks of SEI’s winter themed line, “Silver Valley”.
SEI’s “White Elegance” collection is a back catalog item, but totally worth mentioning here for its unique resist effects. It doesn’t completely resist the ink, but instead the glossy and non-glossy portions of the paper absorb ink at different rates yielding a two-tone effect.
SEI also had their line of wearable art items on display including their “Tumble Dye” mists. Papercrafters may be interested in these for home decor and party projects- just look at those gorgeous misted tissue paper flowers!
There’s just one more post left in Scrapbook Update’s CHA booth coverage! We’ll be back soon to bring you the rest of what we saw at the show.
