We just returned from the Craft Hobby Association summer 2011 trade show in Chicago, Illinois, where we saw some inspiring and fun new scrapbook products! Here are our picks for some of the top new products there.
Summer’s End collection from Fancy Pants Designs.
The colors and motifs in this delightful collection will make scrapping those summer-turning-into-fall days a breeze.
E-Z Dots Mini Permanent Adhesive Runners from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Don’t let the word “mini” in its name mislead you—this adhesive packs a punch and will stand the test of time.
Sheer/Pull Flower Bow (wired) from May Arts.
Just pull this ribbon’s center string . . .
to create a gathered ribbon flower!
Feast your eyes on this delectable typography-inspired offering. Typewriters and alphabet motifs in an appealing color scheme will satisfy your patterned paper and sticker cravings.
If you’ve ever lost a screw while securing a layout in a post-bound album, or if you love the lay-flat look of post-bound albums but not the time they take, then you’ll love this retro fit kit from Grant Studios. Just replace the posts in your favorite album with this easy-to-use, sturdy snap system.
Add whimsical style to your layouts using the bold, bright designs in Prima’s Ruby Violet collection of stamps, papers, and mixed medium embellishments.
Whether you’re traveling the world or your own backyard, this album kit makes it easy for you to scrapbook your life’s adventures. The travel-inspired kit comes with a kraft binder, and all the papers are pre-punched for you to slide inside so you can get creating on the go!
Sasparilla by October Afternoon
If you’re looking to put a little giddyup in your scrapbooking, then this cowboy-themed line is for you, pard’ner! Be on the look out, Tex, for the Miscellany pack, as it’s filled with wild western pieces like tickets, playing cards, die-cuts, buttons, and journaling spots.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek!
