CHA Winter 2013: Lawn Fawn

Lawn Fawn was a ray of sunshine at CHA Winter 2013 (and we needed one in the freezing cold in Anaheim). The booth was well-designed, bright and full of color, giving a summer feeling to the display.

New for CHA Winter 2013, Lawn Fawn now offers coordinating dies to some of their stamp sets. Combine this with their two new paper collections, three new Lawn Trimmings and some fun new stickers and their new introductions are sure to make customers very happy.

This is just a few of the coordinating dies that match the Lawn Fawn stamp sets, called Lawn Cuts:

Anyone for a fortune cookie? How about a mason jar filled with some goodies?

I was so excited to see more sizes in their clear stamping blocks. They have a great grip for your fingers.

The new Lawn Fawn Trimmings are so refreshing: Lemon, Pink Lemonade and Lime.

CHA Winter 2013: Simple Stories

The Simple Stories booth at CHA Winter 2013 was filled with color and fun designs!  The booth was fun, inviting and offered all sorts of fun new ideas for scrapbookers and card makers. As a card maker, I was happy to see clear stamp sets and fun 6×6 paper pads filled with fun designs.

The clear stamps, stickers, and brads all coordinated. They are in different patterns that would capture the eye of any crafter and are great for many occasions. I spoke to Amber Crowell, Founder/Owner of Simple Stories, and her great vision shows in her product. Simple Stories is more then just for scrapbook pages – it is a must-have for card makers too.

Here’s two of Simple Stories’ new clear stamp sets. Camera icons are a hot trend in papercrafting right now.

Simple Stories’ new Vintage Bliss collection is a delight. Its fun patterns are not as bright as the typical Simple Stories collections have been:

Hero Arts booth is always filled with fun new stamps sets – and we can’t forget all those fun new dies too, that coordinate with the stamps.  Hero Arts offers Wood Mounted, Poly Clear and Cling Stamps. One of the new favorites is the Hero Arts Ink pads. The collection of colors keep growing and they now come in mini’s, as well.

The Hero Arts booth at CHA Winter 2013 was filled with fun samples and many customers. As a card maker, I was very pleased with the selection of stamp sets and dies. I have my eye on a few must haves.

Here’s some standout Frame Cuts sets:
