CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Project Life

Welcome back to Scrapbook Update’s CHA Top Ten Hot Picks list!

To see all the hot picks posted so far, visit this link. At the end, after I’ve published all ten of the picks, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference.

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

Project Life was, admittedly, something of an enigma in Las Vegas. While it seemed to have lost some of the rock star shine of its debut at the previous show, Project Life was still an omnipresent force on the show floor, driving sales not only for its own company but for many others as well.

Heritage Kit by Project Life

CHA Summer 2012: Celebrity Spotting

Since it was my first CHA show, I was excited to get the chance to meet some of my favorite celebrity scrapbookers in person.

The first booth I stopped at was the display for American Crafts’ Amy Tangerine line, and Amy Tan graciously agreed to pose with her awesome wall art.

Later, I spotted American Crafts’ Dear Lizzy designer Elizabeth Kartchner, and she agreed to a photo with me.

I had some camera issues when I stopped at Heidi Swapp’s booth, but wanted to share a photo anyway.

Towards the end of the day, I caught Tim Holtz demonstrating some of his distress markers.

Trend | Mason Jars

Mason jars have become a hot trend for weddings as both glasses to hold drinks and vases for flowers. They are popping up in stores like Anthropologie as snow globes, seen for so many uses around trendy blogs and websites, and now we are seeing them enter the scrapbooking world. At CHA this week, several companies featured new releases with Mason jars and today I will take a closer look at this emerging trend.

In the Dear Lizzy line at American Crafts, Mason jars can be found on her paper, stickers, and a stamp as well as in the booth decor.

Elizabeth Kartchner Brings Dear Lizzy to American Crafts

American Crafts announced today that Elizabeth Kartchner is bringing her “Dear Lizzy” signature to the company to create products for them.

Kartchner won the 2007 Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year contest, and writes a column for the magazine called “Dear Lizzy”. She is also the author of the book 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges.

The line will be debuted at CHA-Winter 2010 in Anaheim in the American Crafts booth (#1750). Kartchner describes it on her blog as a spring-themed collection with fabric paper and lots of glitter. American Crafts describes the line on their blog as “an outdoor tea party, inspired by nature and childhood play – you’ll notice designs of darling flowers, trees and bicycles throughout.”
