CHA Embellishments: Petaloo

Reported by Maria Del Pinto

We could not walk past the Petaloo booth without stopping to see the vast display of new scapbooking supplies,  and collections they have ready to release.  As you can see from other posts on CHA, flowers are big this year!

The “Mulberry Street” collection is their most recent release and is available for shipping to your local craft store.

This is a fabulous example of a fun way to use these blooms.

In addition to blooms, they now offer sparkly things to set off your lovely creations.  Here is an example of a beautiful collage of the flowers, paper, glitter and sequins.  From the “Dazzlers” collection, we have the following selection.

The memory book cover below is a great example of how you can combine the various products to create  a fun, personalized cover.

The “Sweet Pea” collection (Premier Devon Collection), was scheduled to be released on February 5, 2011.

These flowers looks so cute on the cards below.

The “Expression” collection also offered an interesting selection of florals.  This collection is scheduled to be released on February 28, 2011.

 Below is your sneak peek at these new florals.

 The “Bohemian Paper Silk” flowers in this line are simple and lend themselves well to to be used on wearable projects like the hairbands below.

A very exciting addition to their line is the “Color Me Crazy” collection which is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2011.

These flowers are made from a variety of media (cloth, paper, etc.) and can be colored with different media (inks, paint, chalks, and more) to match your project color theme.  Below is a small example of the different varieties of flowers available in this collection.

They also offer trims in the same collection.

The “Canterbury” collection is scheduled to be released on May 31, 2011.

Here is a look at a couple of the flowers you can find in this collection.  The first is from the mini “Canterbury” collection in the color pink.

The next is a lovely violet vine flower.

Below are some lovely examples of different projects you can create with this particular line.

The next collection was the “Estate” collection which is scheduled to be released May 1, 2011.

These flowers are made from knotted ribbons that are accented with a lovely crystal accent piece in the center of the bloom.  They come with a pin so that you can put it on a variety of items like hats, purses, etc.  Here is a close up of the darling little toddler dress that is accented with flowers from this line.

The Petaloo booth was like walking into a candy store.  Their new trims offered a fun filled assortment of textures and textiles.  The color and selection was truly inspiring. The question is, what would you make with these beauties.

Needless to say, we spent a lot of time in this booth to see all the exciting products that Petaloo is releasing.  The aforementioned is only a part of what they had there.  You can visit their website to see what is new and when it will be released.

I have been crafting since I was a child and I love seeing what others create. I live near the beach so everything around me inspires me. I also enjoy activities where I re-purpose something old & discarded & make it into something cool. My favorite mantra is "Re-use, recycle, and re-make".
