From her first line, I’ve always enjoyed Amy Tan’s paper lines with American Crafts and this is no exception.
Rise and Shine brings in Amy’s signature happy colors and fun designs, and adds in some new products as well.
Here’s a little wooden desk organizer –
LOOOVING the tape strips + epoxy accents…
What you’ll always hear me praise – is that this line is fresh & new but still goes well with many of her older products. YES for making the things I still have from older lines feel relevant and extending that shelf life. YES for making timeless products that rock.
And yes, I am officially obsessed with succulent plants because they were everywhere and so cute!
That title is a mouthful, isn’t it?! We’ve already seen Tim Holtz for Sizzix in an earlier post, now it’s time to look around the booth at some of the great lines releasing over the next few months.
French General is up first, and their dies will allow you to create some nifty little boxes, decorations, and more.
Their sweet little shelves of project samples were precious – I just wish it had been easier to photograph!
Here you see a few of the “XL” Bigz dies…

Who is the absolute cutest stamp company around that is undeniably KILLING IT with each new release? That’d be Lawn Fawn.
They hit on trend with succulents (seriously – even I want some of this cute!) and they’ve released their own dye ink pads (I will try and report back once available!).
Oh but wait, there’s more… Continue reading “CHA 2015: Lawn Fawn”
Or as I’m calling them: gnomes and leprechauns! You’ll see why in a minute – as these are the stars of my favorite things from these booths.
“Home Grown” is full of florals sure, but primary colors, gnomes, and mushrooms too! I just loved this one. So cute.
As always, Pebbles had a great booth and samples too.
Oh and a “DIY” type crafty but self contained photo garland kit too. I’m really loving the idea of a single product/kit being gifted to a “I’m not crafty” person who can test out our love of all things paper.
Another line – “Happy Day” reminded me a bit of the garden and other lines from last year. Cute… but I’ll probably pass. Note the instagram type camera and coffee cups – both very hot images to use this show.
Then I headed over to Doodlebug not expecting what I found, what made the skies open and angels sing…
mini. doilies. Look at the scale and look at my hand there. These are SMALL. I’m in love. I want all the colors. Well ok, I do not want brown or black but I want all the others. Speaking of yum – check out the rainbow of glittery enamel goodness…
What could be at the end of that rainbow? Why the cutest St. Patrick’s Day line of all time! I adore this – and I love seeing this holiday in a paper line.
Just a few shamrocks and some cute stickers and I’m off…
So both leprechauns and gnomes represented on the show floor – who’d have thought?
If you’re a fan of rubber stamps + Julie Fei-Fan Balzer then you’ll need to be watching for these!
These designs would let me have the feel of Julie’s hand carved rubber stamps – without carving them myself!
It is a small release right now – but I’m hoping we’ll see more of Julie’s stamps and designs become sets that those of us who are not master carvers or artists can enjoy.
These are produced by Impression Obsession, and should be available soon at stores and I’m guessing their own website as well.
