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!

CHA Mega Show 2015 | Scrapbook Travel Products

With all of the travel that I’ve been doing lately, I have travel scrapbooking on the brain! I will need a steady supply of scrapbook travel products to scrap all of the pictures of the places I’ve been flying off to (and will be going to in the near future). Luckily for me, scrapbook manufacturers are back in the business of producing travel themed items again after taking a short break during the economic downturn. There were plenty of travel product options on show at the CHA Mega Show 2015!

Templates have become go-to products for many scrapbookers with the rise of mixed media, and The Crafter’s Workshop has several new templates that are especially handy for pocket scrapbookers. Good Eats and Radar Fragment are perfect for making custom pocket cards!

Snapshots from CHA Mega Show 2015

The lights are turned out and the booths all disassembled. Suitcases have been packed and flights boarded for home….the CHA Mega Show 2015 has passed into history.

Anaheim Convention CenterApparently, Anaheim didn’t get the memo that California is a desert. It was grey and drizzling rain for the majority of the days of the show, welcome weather for local residents but not for show attendees.

Update | 4.15.2014 – Project Life Stampin’ Up!, Scraptime, Studio Calico, Simon Says Stamp, Bella Blvd

There’s lots of news today from the industry’s biggest & brightest names…let’s dive right into it!

Becky Higgins has just announced on her blog that she is partnering with Stampin’ Up! to create exclusive Project Life products for the direct sales market. The announcement promises card collections, accessory packs, albums, pocket pages, tools, other accessories, and stamps (in keeping of course with the mission of Stampin’ Up!). The card packs will be somewhat different than the ones sold in retail stores in two major ways, however. First, they will have square corners – unlike the signature rounded corners of the current Project Life products. Second, the Project Life Stampin’ Up! cards will come in packs of 100 double-sided designs, with no duplicates in a pack.

Project Life products will be available for order through Stampin’ Up! representatives on May 1st, and more product preview information will be available soon. In the announcement, Higgins also promised a future digital release of the Stampin’ Up! exclusive products. Continue Reading →
