CHA Mega Show 2014 | Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks

It’s that time again – time to name the hottest brands from the CHA Mega Show 2014 in Anaheim last month!

This time around, several themes seemed to emerge as I assembled the list, themes that were evident in the show in general. Most notable perhaps was the large influx of truly quality new exhibitors, a group of which the show hasn’t seen like this in years. Another recurring theme, that was evident again and again on the show floor, was of companies who have remade themselves after challenges the past few years and are rising again creatively. Together, these two phenomena combined to lend an air of positivity and optimism to the show.

So, without further ado…here’s the Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks from the CHA Mega Show!

Brother Scan-n-Cut

Brother Scan-n-Cut

This machine has been taking the crafting world by storm in 2014, winning first the Innovations award at the CHA Mega Show and then Tool of the Year at Creativeworld in Frankfurt less than two weeks later. Scan-N-Cut enters a crowded, competitive market for digital diecutting that already featured at least four major competitors duking it out, but the machine’s unique ability to cut whatever it sees on a piece of paper is garnering it a closer look from crafters.

CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Teresa Collins

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)…

Teresa Collins’ unique signature style is well known to industry watchers. She uses vintage style design elements, but arranges them in a more graphic styled way, with a light airy look, bright modern colors, and adding in a few modern elements to the mix. The result is a style that crosses trend lines. As a consequence, Teresa fared well during the massive popularity of vintage, but is still relevant now that graphic is quickly becoming the industry’s dominant design force. Her four lines released at CHA’s summer show in Las Vegas only reinforced her power in the market, along with the expansion of her licensing with her name being put on a machine from Craftwell. (She had previously released licensed embossing folders through the company.)

The first of her four new lines – Family Stories – is a theme that seemed to be everywhere at CHA, but no one does it like Teresa does! Combining floral toile, doilies and antique paper prints with hip elements like male and female icons, with a trendy pink, black, and pale turquoise color palette, Teresa created something that has her signature all over it.

Technique Tuesday | One Day At A Time

march-2

Welcome to the start of our new feature week on Card Annex! This week we will be featuring the new CHA Winter 2013 releases all week from one of my favorite stamp companies, Technique Tuesday.

Today, designer Susie Moore brings us a card made with the “Important Stuff” stamp set:

Technique-Tuesday-Important-Stuff

In addition to having some designs that are perfect for the front of cards, this 4×6 set has a stamp for signing the back of cards, and a few designs that are perfect for using in your Project Life album, too!

Heat embossing the “1 Day at a time” design – which has thick bold lines – over the fine text print patterned paper creates fabulous contrast and still allows the detail of the pattern to show. Susie used pre-coordinated papers from the Stationery Noted collection by Teresa Collins to make matching her patterns quick and easy.

Banner elements can sometimes look like they are at loose ends – literally – so “fastening” them down visually with a pearl stud keeps them from flying away visually and draws the eye vertically.

Supplies | Stamps: Technique Tuesday (Important Stuff). Cardstock: Papertrey Ink. Patterned Paper: Teresa Collins (Stationery Noted). Dies: Spellbinders, MFT Stamps (banner). Bling: unknown.

Designer: Susie Moore
