CHA Trends: Part One

I'm back from CHA, still reeling & smiling from the overwhelming, fantastic time!
(My CK Creative Spaces Vol. 2 Giveaway is still open until be sure to go to the POST BELOW if you haven't commented for a chance to win!)

Ok, so yes, I'm trying to smooth over my dorky, social awkwardness & many foot-in-mouth moments, lol...I may not make the best first impression, just sayin'...but despite all that, I had a great time meeting new friends, spending time with old ones, and geeking out over meeting several of my scrappy heroes.

On to the, just a quick peek at some top trends I liked from the show.
Trends...both new and those still going strong & picking up steam:

Gold & metallic neutrals...along with papers, I saw a lot of this in art mediums, sequins, rub-ons, vellum, & tapes.
Pink Paislee Luxe

Viva Inka Gold
Embellishment Must-Haves:  Wood Veneers, Shaped Clips, Mini-bags, Washi.

Basic Grey Hipster

American Crafts Hopscotch Wood this big size.

Prima Houses/Borders

Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages

Fancy Pants
Love these Prima clocks. the banners!

Favorite tape of the show!

Glitz Hearts.

So SOOOO much more to show...papers, more art mediums, make-n-takes, & top favorite collections.

So much inspirational product & so many inspirational artists & designers.
My mojo is going strong and I can't WAIT to get back to creating!
