CHA Winter 2013: Pink Paislee

It’s always a pleasure at CHA shows to stop by and see Pink Paislee and its owner Rebecca Cross!

I had heard plenty of buzz at the CHA Winter 2013 show about the new Heidi Swapp product and wasn’t disappointed by what I found. The new Memory Files Album and embellishments are classic Heidi style! Just look at the layers you can create with the clear pages and varied sizes of the pages in the samples:

CHA Winter 2012: Pink Paislee

Pink Paislee designs are always full of color and whimsy.  We adore these new lines and I’m sure you will too!
Christy Tomlinson’s line “She Art” is so colorful and fun!  Perfect for collage work and mixed media.
This Paper Doll collage paper is going to be so much fun to work with!
These Texture Rub Ons are so unique!

The Indigo Bleu line is clean and fresh… we love the soft color palate.

London Market, vintage European designs in soft florals…

I especially adore these Spool Buttons!
Prairie Hill: Spot on trend patterns of chevron, diamonds, stripes and dots.  I especially love the Kite Strings design!
Spring Jubilee: very bright designs, inspired by collage.  Full of butterflies and birds.

CHA- Paper Lines & More-Pink Paislee and House of Three

If you like to personalize your papercrafts, you’re going to love the House of 3 products released by Pink Paislee at the CHA Summer Show.

House of 3 is the brainchild of Heidi Swapp, Janet Hopkins and Rhonna Farrer, and initially offered digital and printable scrapbooking supplies. Now, Pink Paislee is offering a collection of House of 3 paper products, all of which can be customized to your heart’s content with ink, paint and all the cool shimmery, spritzy products available.

First up is the paper. The double-sided papers have resist ink designs on the front and a coordinating pattern on the back. There’s Darling Doilies, Divine Damask, Lovely Lace, Architectural Arch, Fancy Filigree and Beautiful Butterfly.

Then there’s the albums. They are canvas-covered binder albums with 20 page protectors in various sizes. There are six pages with 2″x3″ openings, 6 5″x 7″ pages, 2 8.5″x11″ pages and 6 pages with 5″x5″ and 2″x5″ openings. Awesome!

There’s coordinating paper designed to fit in those page protectors. And it’s double sided. Plus the album cover has a decorative metal plate with a loop so you can hang Dangle Elements (oversized rhinestones in clear and smoke, sold in packages of six pieces).

If that’s not enough, you can add an album band–a pleated elastic fabric band that can further be decorated with the Flower Darlings (soft chiffon flowers in shades of gray).

Here are the Flower Darlings, the Ruffle Darlings and the album bands.

Then there’s the chipboard. It’s printed on one side and corrugated on the back. You can ink, spritz, and paint these, and maybe rip off a piece or two to expose the corrugated goodness underneath. There’s an elements pack and an alphabet.

Here are some examples from the Pink Paislee booth:

And here’s a super cute display featuring some of the House of 3 products. I can’t wait to get my hands on these!

Of course Pink Paislee had some of their own delicious goodies, including the Hocus Pocus Halloween line. I love these muted colors and the Arsenic Poison graphic on some of the paper and embellishments.

The whole collection includes 12″x12″ paper, glitter stickers, vintage tinsel ribbon, canvas borders, metal badges that are flat on the back for easy adhering, flip notes, heavy duty clear cards and faux bois mini chipboard albums.

Here’s a close up of the clear cards and the mini chipboard book. Those clear cards are really heavy duty.

Here’s a layout using the yummy Halloween line:

I really loved this display. They hung some of the clear cards from the tree.

Old School is perfect for all of those upcoming school pages. It features the same elements as the Halloween line.

And last up is Sweetness, perfect Valentine’s Day, love, romance, weddings, etc.

Along with all those fun paper lines, Pink Paislee has added to its line of Artisan Elements. These feel like pleather and can be distressed wtih paint, ink, markers and anything else you can think of.

Whew! That was one exciting booth, with lots to see. I can’t wait to do some shopping!

I had so much fun at CHA–the first one I ever attended. Since I pretty much roamed around the rooms gawking at the cool new products I saw, I figured I would just show you a few of the things that caught my eye during the two days I was there.

Clear Scraps has a very cool Build-a-Book idea that features either chipboard or clear letters that you can use to make your own book. Below is a soccer album using clear letters:

Cosmo Cricket is one of my favorite lines and did not disappoint. Their paper is fabulous and I love all the new blackboard albums and boxes they now have (see Julie’s post for a look at them!)
Graphic 45 had a gorgeous booth filled with fun paper and altered items.

Here is a look at their coordinating paper and tag accents:

Maya Road has fun chipboard books and fold out albums that are just adorable:
October Afternoon has some great fun and whimsical designer paper and clear stamps. This was one of my favorites:

Pink Paislee glitter Pixee Stix look like a lot of fun, especially for those who love to add a bit of sparkle to their projects:
Spellbinders had tons of new products to see. This wall shows the new packaging for the dies.

Demonstrators showed off how to use the new Pierceabilities:
Spellbinders Shapeabilities:

Tim Holtz Idea-ology booth – I loved all the new fun embellishments that I saw:

Tinkering Ink showed off their new paper beads concept…featuring pre-cut paper strips that you roll around any object (pencil, marker), adhere with a bit of glue and then you roll it in UTEE that has been heated in a melting pot. After rolling them through twice, you use a heat tool smooth out any rough patches. Very fun!

Unity Stamp Company-I had to stop by the Unity booth to check out how these stamps work. I did see the video from the last CHA coverage but was still wanting to try them out for myself. I was impressed. I loved having the wooden handles to hold and being able to see where the image stamps!

Here is their new hanging stand created to house a lot of the larger wood stamps:

Thanks for letting me share a few of my favorites with you. If you were able to attend the show, I would love to hear about YOUR favorites!

Pink Paislee

New to CHA this year was Pink Paislee. Debuting two new lines: Office Lingo and Spring Fling, this new company is making a statement. Officially established in January 2008, they have something for everyone. I found these two collections fresh and funky, with a playful feeling.

For scrapbookers and card makers…they offer bright and coordinating papers for every style.
For stampers…they are offering a whole new line of clear stamps made out of non-yellowing photopolymer material, for a longer lasting, more durable stamp. They also have die-cut pages in funky shapes for journaling and embellishments. I love that each collection contains coordinating pieces, making it easier to use them. They go with each other, as well as, other products you may already have and are waiting to use.

The “Office Lingo” collection is full office inspired design with understated patterns and texture, while the “Spring Fling” collection, my favorite, is more bold, yet still vintage.

Each collection is filled with adorable mix and match accessories, making the creative possiblities endless. I am looking forward to seeing what else they come up with.
