CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Amy Tangerine

Welcome back to Scrapbook Update’s CHA Top Ten Hot Picks list!

To see all the hot picks posted so far, visit this link. At the end, after I’ve published all ten of the picks, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference.

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

Amy Tangerine has been one of the hottest brands in the industry since its debut last year. With just one collection per show, Amy has built an iconic signature style and each new release has been eagerly snapped up by her legions of fans. Each collection coordinates with and builds on the previous ones, with an ongoing style thread and variations on the same color palette.

The amazing thing about Amy’s collections are their versatility. The latest collection, called Cut & Paste, has bright colors that make it perfect for back-to-school, everyday scrapbooking, or travel, but with gray undertones that don’t make it look out of place for fall.

On August 12th, the appeals court brought to an end the long saga of the court battle pitting Spellbinders against QuicKutz and Lifestyle Crafts with an opinion that consisted of a single word – “AFFIRMED” – confirming the previous ruling that QuicKutz had won from the lower court.

One is to request the case be re-heard “en banc”, meaning before the entire three judge Appeals Court panel. To secure an en banc hearing, however, the party must be able to cite a point in the original appeals decision that they want to argue with the court. Since the Spellbinders decision was issued without an accompanying opinion, the company is effectively denied the option of an en banc appeal. Continue Reading →
