Hot Trends From Cha


The summer Craft & Hobby Association just wrapped up in Illinois, where all of the latest and greatest scrapbooking and craft trends were unveiled to the public. All of the big industry names attend the event, as well as many local crafters.

Fresh off the trade show floor, Designer Kristine McKay shares her favorite new products from the show.

Kaiser Crafts
Wooden 3-dimensional dress forms, bird cages, chandeliers and candelabras.

Teresa Collins Stamp-Maker
Not only can you make your own custom stamps you can also emboss leather and make molds for jewelry.

Clover Co.
They have these great little plastic templates that give you guides to stitch together amazing fabric flowers.

We R memory keepers- roller stamp stitches with interchangeable rollers.

Layerz Paper
It is made for use with the Cricut machine. So many of their cartridges have layering options, but it can be a pain to insert a new sheet of paper for every layer. This paper is blocked out into small squares so you only have to insert one sheet of paper

Echo Park
This is my first paper line (it’s Halloween, called Apothecary) that was released at this show. It was actually inspired by projects that I made on Studio 5.
