My CHA Summer 2012 Favorites

Now that the CHA Summer show has wrapped up, I want to share my favorite picks from the show. It was harder to come up with a range of products from this show as many are holiday oriented. I’m not much of a seasonal scrapper so I don’t buy any of the Halloween or holiday and winter collections. These picks are products I will buy as soon as they are available!

1. Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection

I love colors in this collection but more, I love that it does not scream autumn. Fall in Florida means lower humidity and temperatures in the 80’s. No trees turning colors here. But these papers feature flowers, gingham and polka dots (in addition to some fall trees and leaves). I will have no problem using most of these patterns with my photos during the fall months.

2. Mister Huey Star Mask

Studio Calico’s misting masks are great but I’m really excited about this one as it’s a great motif for boys.

3. Jenni Bowlin General Store stickers

I love all of the fun vintage images on these stickers. They are great on their own or added to collages or clusters of embellishments. They will be the perfect for layering.

4. Pink Paislee mistable embellishments

I love an embellishment I can customize with all the mists and inks and stains I already own. In addition to hearts, Pink Paislee is releasing butterflies, stars, and arrows too, along with papers and flowers.

5. Jillibean Soup Staples II

Zig Zags are not going away and paired with polka dots, they become even more essential. These papers will be perfect to mix and match with other Jillibean Soup papers and other papers in your stash.

So, from everything revealed last week, what products are you most looking forward to?

Thanks for stopping by today!
