CHA Mega Show 2015 | Nancy’s Picks

The Scrapbook Update Hot Picks bring you the buzz from CHA shows, but sometimes my personal taste varies from what is “hot” or there isn’t room to include all of the things that I think are exciting.

So in honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s do “Nancy’s Picks”, my personal list of what I fell in love with at the CHA Mega Show 2015.

First up is one of my favorite Instagrams from the show! I’ve always loved the concept of Faber-Castell’s Gelatos, but the color palette of brights and primaries left me really cold. Now though, they’ve released a palette of pastel colors for the line that I believe will increase the product lines usability for me (and a lot of other people). Plus it makes for very pretty rainbow pictures!

Trend | Tags

From small to large, plain tags and journaling tags have been around for quite a while. At this CHA however, I’m noticing an emerging trend of more pre-decorated tags and with so many fantastic options being released, I wanted to share my picks from the CHA show floor.

The most exciting tags for me, are the Pink Paislee printed shipping tags. The printed style that they do can be accomplished at home with a plain shipping tag and digital kits, but it is time-consuming and difficult to get perfect printing all the way to the edges. These are beautifully done, and I can not wait to get them in my hands and create with them.

CHA Winter 2012 | May’s Early Picks

I love this time of year, when new products, partnerships, and lines are announced, revealed, and otherwise unveiled to us. The weeks before CHA always make me excited to check blogs and watch the Scrapbook Update sneak peek page for items I’d missed. While I believe the real pre-show madness and peeks will truly get going this week, there are some strong offerings that have already been shown, and today I am here to share my top early picks.

Rhonna Farrer for My Minds Eye

At the very top of my list is a new partnership and lines that I am very eager to have. Rhonna Farrer has partnered with My Minds Eye to bring us her creative brilliance in a whole new way. With papers and amazingly detailed embellishments, Follow Your Heart by Rhonna Farrer is sure to be one of the show’s major hits.

There are two color schemes in the collection –  “Be Happy” and “Be Amazing.” As a long time fan of her work, I am very excited to see her designs staying in the paper realm. Many of these designs would work wonderfully with her existing digital designs available at www.rhonnadesigns.com. Continue Reading →

Trend Watch | Shades of Orange

From persimmon to peach, marmalade to mandarin…there’s a color that is not normally seen in my craft space that is invading my studio. That color is orange! In many shades, in various forms, this color I usually don’t play well with is not only invading the craft stores, it’s also working really well on my pages too!

While this is the usual time of year for shades of orange to make a cameo in my fall seasonal projects, this year it’s more than that. Paired with aqua, pink, grey, green, blue, and many more colors, I’m finding orange to be the perfect accent. Here are some of my favorite basics in orange:

Above: American Crafts “Nightfall” Thickers (Elm – Rust),  Core’dinations Tim Holtz Distress cardstock (Wild Honey),  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Spiced Marmalade), Studio Calico Mr. Huey’s mist (Custard), Ranger Perfect Pearls mist (Mandarin).

Where is orange showing up in hot new product lines? Here are a few noteable places it has popped up: Continue Reading →
