"Each year I get so excited to attend CHA and see in person all the fabulous things our wonderful Manufactures have I store… This year, I have already seen lots of sneak peeks from some of my favorite companies, and I think we will see a lot more of the vintage "kitchy" style, with big florals, fun retro prints and Wallpaper looks (see below). Also soft Vintage colors like corals, mint greens and robin egg blue. I also think the 80's are back in full swing and we will see a lot of fun bright, electric patterns and colors.

I am SUPER excited about a new Tool I have seen with GCG Studios, one that I have actually been wanting for years! This new tool can stamp and emboss chipboard and the designs include alphabets, floral, stars, flourishes.. the list goes on! I KNOW this will be a must have tool for 2010!
I also think we will see a lot of altered art mixed in with scrapbooking including fabric books, wearable pieces like necklaces, headpieces and more…. using scrapbooking products. I think this is going to be a wonderful year for old things new.. and I can't wait!"
