CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Pink Paislee

This time around I’m doing something a bit different with the CHA Hot Pick list. Instead of giving the ten Hot Picks to my readers in one huge overwhelming chunk, I’m going to give you one pick per article for each of the ten picks. At the end, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference of all ten. This will allow me to bring you more information about each of the Hot Picks, and also bring them to you faster!

To see all the hot picks posted so far, visit this link.

So here, in no particular order, is the next hot pick for CHA Summer 2013 (aka Create-n-Connect)…

Pink Paislee

Pink Paislee has long been a favorite of scrapbookers, but they were out on a limb a bit at the summer 2013 show, with a new look that tries to keep the company relevant with changing consumer tastes. As with everything the company has done, the change of design direction was superbly executed.

The company’s previous style was heavily vintage, but their new look is more modern and graphic.

Up first is “Hey Kid,” a bright happy collection full of hip elements like moustaches, glasses, and chevrons:

CHA Summer 2013 | Twelve Timbers

At each show, there is usually one neat surprise that you don’t expect to see that really gets you thinking about some great creative projects. For me, at the Create-n-Connect show in Las Vegas, that booth was Twelve Timbers.

Twelve Timbers was a new exhibitor at the show who specializes in wood wall art. Their pre-finished pieces made me want to redecorate every wall of my house!

CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Simple Stories

This time around I’m doing something a bit different with the CHA Hot Pick list. Instead of giving the ten Hot Picks to my readers in one huge overwhelming chunk, I’m going to give you one pick per article for each of the ten picks. At the end, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference of all ten. This will allow me to bring you more information about each of the Hot Picks, and also bring them to you faster!

So here are the hot picks for CHA Summer 2013 (aka Create-n-Connect), in no particular order…

Hot Pick: Simple Stories

This pick was an easy one to make. Simple Stories was the top vote getter in our pre-show Sneak Peeks survey, and it was the name I heard over and over again talking to show attendees about what they liked. Simple Stories did a huge release for this show: Four collections of 12×12 papers and elements plus their matching SN@P! system accessories, along with albums and page protectors.

For all those summer days in the sun, Simple Stories has a new collection called “I {heart} Summer”. Created from bright colors like yellow, red, and turquoise, and grounded with deep shades of brown, the collection features summer icons like bicycles, ice cream, clouds, surf boards, and flip flops.
