CHA Post #2...

I warned you there would be more. Between my phone camera and my regular camera I must have taken about 300 pictures. Let's get right to the goods....starting with some Jenni Bowlin eye candy (that booth was loaded with cool vintage packaging & cute displays - I was in heaven!)
aren't those bingo place cards cute, and those wooden spool labels? Here are some great doily flowers, they look like quilled paper and they are really low profile (like a flat plastic button):
This is a peek at Pebbles Fresh Goods line - oh, yes...fresh & very good:
I should have taken way more pictures in the Pink Paislee booth. Here's a little sampling of Vintage Vogue: 
 Love the paper 2nd from left - looks like a word search:
These were in the Stamper's Anonymous booth - tin pin heaven. These have a great variety of design from graphic to vintage to numbers: 
I like these numbered pins especially: 
I had the awesome pleasure of meeting Susan McShirley, owner of SRM Stickers. She's so kind and friendly. I got to see the fancy font stickers up close. I love them even more now: 
This photo doesn't look like much but it's kraft colored Tissue Stock from Canvas Home Basics. It's quite excellent - all kinds of possibilities with this fun, crinkly stuff! 
Similar to this product is Tim Holtz's printed tissue from the Ranger booth. It's on a roll in a package like waxed paper. I'm a sucker for a cute & clever package: 
Here's one of my fave lines; October Afternoon's Farmhouse - love this grid paper:
...some of the embellishments - digging the color palette of this line:

...cute little paper flag kit:
Here's the new Studio Calico Warm Calico line - it's neutral and I really like it because it could easily work with or in place of kraft:
want all of these masks:
these are little post-it like journaling notes - want them in every color:
 these are the ones that go with the Memoir line:
and last but not least today - two of my favorite papers of all time from Jillibean Soup's Homemade 6 Bean Soup:
 I love this quilting grid paper:
These stickers are also new from Jillibean. They now make their stickers matte which will cut down on the glare and smear factors:

Ok, I think I better break here. The trends I noticed: farm themed product, chalkboard, quilting themes, maps & grids. The colors: purple & turquoise, sometimes together. Also pleased to see lots of 6 x 6 pads for nearly every new line I saw. Good news for the cardmakers out there!
Back tomorrow for the final installment of the CHA recap.
