Perhaps it’s a bit self indulgent, but I really feel like I need to devote a whole picks post to ribbons and trim. From twill to lace, printed designs to pleated – and everywhere in between – ribbons and trims were everywhere on the show floor. Here are my picks from CHA-winter:
Everyone was talking about Pink Paislee’s pleated ribbon. I am definitely seeing great possibilities with this unique ribbon product, but I’m even more excited about the Artisan tapes. The patterns are great and I love the feel of them.
Making Memories released a travel line, and I especially love the airplane trim.
Tissue tape. That’s right, Tim Holtz has come up with a tape that’s super sturdy but is made from tissue so it’s partially translucent too. Each roll has 16 yards and there are several different styles. Imagine the inking, layering, painting, and other possibilities!
Webster’s Pages booth was filled with noteworthy trims, beautiful papers, and trinkets. I loved every item in the booth. They’ve really outdone themselves with this release and I’m going to share two examples – their trim card and new fabric ribbon. They also have amazing bulk trims for stores to purchase.
The fabric ribbon from Webster’s Pages is very lightweight and thin but sturdy. I love how intricate the designs are on it.
JIllibean Soup has the cutest little packages of trim. I love all of the colors and designs and how well they will match up to their collections.
My Minds Eye released a collection called Lush and the jewels, brads, and of course ribbons are great accessories not just for this line but others as well. The single color ribbon cards will be very useful.
American Crafts released so many must-haves, and as usual they really hit the mark with their ribbons from all of the lines. The ribbons below coordinate with the “I Do” line. The “Botanique” and “Dear Lizzy” lines have exquisite offerings as well.
Wouldn’t it be fun if somebody took crepe paper and added printed designs? Tattered Angels and Heidi Swapp did just that in their latest offering with these mist-able crepe paper ribbons.
Maya Road released a number of vintage inspired lovely delicate trims. In soft colors and sweet designs, these little treats will be brightening my studio soon I hope.
Queen & Co. released a number of new designs in their signature felt adhesive backed trims that I liked, but these were my favorites. The loops are just too cute!
