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!

Simple Stories is back with a sequel to their blockbuster “Say Cheese” collection, called “Say Cheese II”. The new collection builds onto the old one, with all of the elements working together. A new collection of pocket cards is sure to be popular!

Bella Blvd CampoutCrate Paper also did an interpretation of the retro trailers for their travel themed line called Journey. Their color palette and designs appear to be more 1950’s inspired, however.

Under the Echo Park Paper brand name, new collections of designer cards for pocketing scrapbooking called “Getaway” are available in a nice subdued color palette.

Carta Bella’s new travel collection is called Travel Stories, and the bold color palette is attention-getting. The pocket card designs on one sheet are very creative and unique.   Carta Bella Travel StoriesStamps with matching die sets were everywhere on the show floor, and Technique Tuesday has a great stamp set for pocket scrapbookers to use for travel scrapbooking called Going Places. The matching die set is also called Going Places.

Technique Tuesday Going Places Technique Tuesday Going PlacesThere was lots to love in Tim Holtz’s CHA Mega Show 2015 announcements for travel scrapbookers. First up, was the repackaging of his mini blueprint stamps from 12 stamp packs into 4 stamp theme pack. This will make it much more affordable for consumers to buy just the theme that they need of the stamps, instead of possibly having to buy 8 they didn’t need to get the set of four that they did.

There’s also an entire new idea-ology collection devoted to airmail themes called Passport that has great pieces in it for travel usage, like map washi tape .

    Nancy, you’ve shown us so much in one place — it is SO much! I don’t think I’d seen the Pink Paislee before and I love it! I love the gold foil overlay as you predicted; I also love their enamel airplanes, and geo tags!
