More pictures from the show...

Everyone likes to see more photos from the show floor, right?  Here are a few that our buyer, Kristina, snapped while visiting booths and then sent our way:

We can't wait to start stocking our shelves with the new releases!

Your glittery CHA report - day two

The end of day two and the E word is starting to kick in: exhaustion! But it's exhaustion of the very best kind - surrounded by so many beautiful new products and inspiring people, kicking in plenty of creative energy!  

I started day two with October Afternoon, who have three new collections for spring: 9 to 5, Cakewalk and Woodland Park.  They also have some new products in the mix, like washi tape (bottom right) and Chapters, a minibook product with tabbed pages you can arrange in any order you like.  That's the payphone paper toward the middle.  Rotary phones are a real trend at this show, by the way.  Several manufacturers have stepped away from mobiles and push-buttons and included some diallers, so if you've grown tired of 'putting birds on things', then you could start putting old phones on things instead.  Interesting potential!

See that paper at the bottom left from Cakewalk? We recently had a weekly challenge here with a similar look.  I love it!

Clouds, butterflies and trees? Woodland Park is lush with blues and greens.

Then onto Lily Bee Studio, who have four new collections.  Each includes a mini alphabet sheet and an index card pack - products that are useful for Project Life in addition to standard page sizes.

This is Buttercup, and it's my favourite colour combination of the entire show.  Just beautiful! And the stamp set is all different kinds of chevron patterns, including both backgrounds and borders.  Just love this collection!

BasicGrey released four new collections, starting with PB&J, with reds, blues and greens and a mid-century nostalgia.

The Plumeria collection includes plum, lavender and warm yellow and orange shades.

Konnichiwa certainly has a Japanese influence, but the papers sing of springtime and delicate blossoms, so a trip to Japan is not a requirement to use and enjoy these... which is a shame, because surely it would be nice if a pack of paper came with a free plane ticket and hotel reservation inside, but I guess that is a little much.

And the fourth collection, What's Up, focuses on all things above our heads - clouds, balloons and banners.  It feels like world's fair imagery with a modern colour scheme.  

So... which is your favourite so far?  Let me know - I need to dash to get ready for day three!

Love and glitter,
Shimelle

A few glittery notes from day one of CHA-Winter 2012

Here we are at the CHA Winter show for 2012 - the craft industry trade show with hundreds of manufacturers rolling out their brand new collections to entice buyers to bring these new goodies to your store.  And that includes Two Peas, of course!

The show lasts four days and each night I'll be posting a quick wrap of the day and some of my favourite images from everything I snapped.  I shall try to avoid fixating on just the glittery papers and embellishments!

My first two stops were Jenni Bowlin Studio and Amy Tangerine, so that's what I have to share with you today... plus some fun with the Garden Girls!

The new collections from Jenni Bowlin include Magpie, shown above left, which close to stores next month.  Multi-coloured chevron? Don't mind if I Do!

Her new stickers sheets include a mix of kinds of sticker on sheet makes perfect use of the smaller size you might use in pockets of your Project Life album.

The second collection, Wren, ships in April.  Love these soft shades of blue in the mix.

How lovely to all these JBS punches look?  You can already find these in the Two Peas store too!

...and then I headed over to the Amy Tangerine booth and ran into some familiar faces!

So much fun! That's Kristina, Amy, Lisa, Becky, Julie and me, all from the Garden here at Two Peas.  We love crafting with Amy's designs and hope to add these new lines to the mix very soon! (And this photo is from Lisa's Instagram of an instant picture printed on Amy's printer and taken by Paige at the American Crafts booth!)

But we promise we looked at product too.

Like gorgeous patterned papers, of course!

And so many happy embellishments, like layered tags, canvas stickers and if you didn't spot it at first - a 6x6 paper pad of Amy's paper designs! 

Now I have to admit the first day of the show is always overwhelming.  So many new things to see, friends to find and a big helping of jet-lag too.  So this is all for today but look for lots more in tomorrow's round up - I have a memory card in my camera that I really must share with you!

Signing off in the last few minutes of day one,
Shimelle
