CHA Summer 2012: Jillibean Soup

Jillibean Soup can always be relied on for some solid new introductions at any CHA show, and CHA Summer 2012 in Chicago was no exception.

The company introduced four new lines of paper at the show – let’s start with their great new addition to their line of Soup Staples!

Chevron Soup Staples

Hello, chevrons! These trendy chevrons in beautiful bright colors that coordinate with the rest of Jillibean’s lines are sure to be popular with both scrapbookers and cardmakers. The dots on the reverse make them incredibly versatile for a variety of projects.

For fall, Jillibean is offering up nice warm Country Pumpkin Chowder. While mostly a very traditional stew, there’s a few surprising notes mixed in like the calendar print and the patchwork of numbers:

For the holidays, there’s Winter Tortellini and Spinach Soup in traditional bright red and green, with touches of pink and turquoise thrown in:

The collection will certainly be popular for holiday cards, especially mixed with existing elements from Jillibean’s collection such as baker’s twine and alphabets:

The last of the four collections is Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup, a vintage-inspired collection for everyday use:

Jillibean Soup owner Jill Yegerlehner’s vision for Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup was implemented by graphic designer Laina Lamb using actual design elements taken from her grandmother’s home, such as paper ephemera, buttons, and lace.

Jillibean is known for its combination of kraft and brighter colors, but the lighter elements of Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup can create beautiful vintage loveliness for cards and layouts.

There’s also new embellishments coming at Jillibean Soup!

First up, there’s new Alphabean colors: Diced Denim, Organic Orange, Kut Kraft, Blended Black, and Whipped White.

The new 4″ x 8″ sheets of Hexagon stickers are sure to be popular with card makers and Project Life fans:

The new Banner Bites stickers can be folded in half around a pin or toothpick to make a flag:

There’s eight new designs for Jillibean’s eternally popular Soup Label stickers line – and five of them are especially for card makers!
