CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: The Crafter’s Workshop

Welcome 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)…

Like the previous pick (Lawn Fawn), this is another company that grabbed this honor for their continued upward motion in the market and for showing increasing signs of being a mature company with a completely solid offering and development program.

The Crafter’s Workshop now has a stable slate of four big-name signature designers, and their efforts for CHA Summer 2013 showed how all these names mesh together, complementing each other without really competing.

Ronda Palazzari’s new stencils really stood out because of the nature of their design. Her style I’d describe as outgoing, in contrast to Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, whose style is more introspective. This distinction is reflective of their backgrounds, with Ronda’s work focused more on layouts that cater more to an audience, and Julie’s more focused on art journaling (which to most is private and personal).

These stencils of Ronda’s have multiple designs on them, making them quite versatile:

Noteworthy | 12.9.2011

CHA might not be for seven more weeks, but manufacturers are not waiting for the show to release exciting new products and debut new lines. In fact, the current trend is to release product year-round instead now! I’m not complaining – I am enjoying a more steady stream of new products. This week, Noteworthy features three new product line announcements, as well as some creative ideas that took me by surprise.

With the beautiful bold patterns and designs, many crafters struggle to figure out where to cut it or how to use Webster’s Pages patterned paper. They are beautiful and over the last few years have definitely been among my favorites, but their surprising new announcement has me excited, and I believe other scrapbookers will feel the same. Webster’s announced this week that they are creating something new – Clean & Simple papers will be “dedicated to a cleaner, simpler version of Webster’s Pages.”

And no, this isn’t a one-time deal. ALL of our new collections will have a corresponding Clean & Simple paper line, the perfect complement to Classic Webster’s. So instead of having 6 papers per collection…we’re now having 12 papers per collection {6 papers Classic Webster + 6 papers Clean & Simple}

I do not think it is only clean & simple style scrapbookers who will enjoy and appreciate this addition to their lines. This takes out a lot of the intimidation factor of Webster’s Pages’ papers, stretches the usefulness of their lines, and gives crafters more options. I look forward to seeing their new release (Sunday Picnic) which should arrive in stores in January, as well as how this new development adds to their future lines. Continue Reading →
