So here, in no particular order, is the next hot pick for CHA Summer 2013 (aka Create-n-Connect)…

We R Memory Keepers is a company that has really stepped up their game the past few years, and consumers have responded. Long known for being a tool and album specialist, the company is finally developing into a quality producer of a broad scale of papercrafting products, and even branching into home decor.

This fold down table and organizer (which has an MSRP of $199 and ships in September) was much-discussed by attendees in Vegas:

CHA Winter 2013 | Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks!

It’s been a tough decision to make this time around…there were a few hard choices to make in narrowing it down…but it’s finally here: The CHA Winter 2013 Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks list!

The show was buzzing with excitement as we rang in 2013 in Anaheim. Attendees were very optimistic about the future. The Hot Picks definitely reflect that excitement over new directions and a new evolution happening in the industry.

So, in no particular order, here’s the Top Ten Hot Picks for CHA Winter 2013!

Becky Higgins’ Project Life

So let’s just get the obvious out of the way, shall we? Project Life was already hot, hot, hot with consumers before the announcement that it would be available wholesale starting at CHA Winter 2013, and in Anaheim, retailers flocked to the Project Life booth so that they can give their customers the latest trend they are asking for!

CHA Winter 2013 | Scrapbook Totes by We R Memory Keepers & Everything Mary

Scrapbook totes were not as numerous at CHA Winter 2013 as they were in past years, but at least two manufacturers presented pretty and practical solutions for crafters to store their stashes.

We R Memory Keepers

We R Memory Keepers offered a new “360” spinner wheeled bag and a coordinating shoulder bag.  The teal patterned two-piece set makes a beautiful, classically stylish statement for scrapbookers and other crafters on the go.

CHA Winter 2013 | We R Memory Keepers

In addition to six new paper collections, We R Memory Keepers introduced their Albums Made Easy system, available to stores in March. In a sea of pocket page products and accoutrements at this show, several items in particular stood out.

The 3×4 rounded corner rectangle punch helps memory keepers punch their own pocket-sized journaling cards or photos in that ever-so-familiar, rounded style. It ships to stores in June and will cost $29.

From Trend to Staple | Decorative Tape and Baker’s Twine

Trends have come and gone ever since the advent of modern scrapbooking, but sometimes a trend sticks around long enough to move out of the fad stage and become a staple. We’ve seen it happen with many supplies and motifs over the years (clouds, woodgrain, and bling are just a few examples). Thinking back to what I saw at CHA Winter 2012, it’s apparent two more once trendy supplies have firmly cemented their staplehood: baker’s twine and decorative or washi tape. These two items were found in many, many booths on the CHA Winter 2012 show floor and will be plentiful this season on store shelves.

You know an item has become a staple when We R Memory Keepers adds it to their lineup of basic embellishments. This season both tape and twine join the ranks of brads and other staple items on We R’s rainbow wall of embellishments.
