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 →

CHA Sneak Peek Highlights – Part 1

The sneak peeks are starting to trickle out (due to the way the holidays occur this year, don’t expect the avalanche until probably the week of January 6th). Despite the fact that relatively few are out yet, there are still some really great ones worth putting on your wish list already!

Amy Tangerine has knocked it out of the park – AGAIN – with her new “Plus One” collection. It coordinates with her previous collections, continuing the same palette and style while still somehow looking fresh. A plethora of small patterns makes this perhaps the most usable of all the Amy Tangerine collections to date.

Several items stand out from the collection. These flair badges are particularly appealing, very versatile and so workable for a huge amount of applications: Plus One Flair Continue Reading →

Coats & Clark, Tim Holtz Announce Line of Quilt Fabric

Fans of Tim Holtz who also take part in sewing and quilting activities will have something to celebrate soon as Tim announced today a new partnership with Coats & Clark that will have him designing the company’s debut fabric line.

Coats & Clark is well-known to sewers and quilters for their thread and sewing notions, and lovers of knit & crochet for their Red Heart yarn and their Susan Bates brand needles & hooks. But fabric will be a new endeavor for Coats.

The new line, called Eclectic Elements, will feature 24 SKUs of fabric designs that will be familiar to Tim Holtz fans from his paper lines. Some of the designs are being produced in two different color tones, taupe and neutral (seen below). The 100% cotton fabric is 44″ wide and will be available on 15 yard bolts. For quilters, the fabric will be available in fat quarters, design rolls, 5” and 10” charm packs and fat eighths, while it is being marketed for papercrafters in 6″ and 12″ fabric crafting packs.
