CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Flea Market by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper

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

Maggie Holmes’ first line for Crate Paper, which debuted at CHA Winter 2013, was an instant hit, and her follow-up release is generating just as much buzz.

CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Simple Stories

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.
