As some of you may already be aware, a group of our editors went to the CHA convention last week and I was lucky enough to be part of that group! We were representing FaveCrafts, but editors from AllFreeBeadedJewelry, AllFreeKniting, and FaveQuilts were there. The few days we were there were definitely a whirlwind, but we saw so much exciting stuff that’s coming out and will be at your local craft stores in the coming months. I wanted to share with you guys something that I saw as a huge trend in paper crafting so that you can get just as excited as I did! Oh yea, and keep reading for a special surprise.
These pretty pastel ones from Basic Grey were definitely my favorite. I love the vintage, old-world feel they give off. I will definitely be picking up some of these when they finally hit the store.
How about these fun and colorful prints from Hambly Screen Prints? The picture on the right is of a paper print they have coming out. I think it would also make a super cute fabric print too.
Don’t worry, I found something for those of you that love stamping out there too! This cute vintage set from 7 Gypsies has a pretty detailed hot air balloon, but so many other good things too!
This pretty printed paper is from Quick Quotes. This is actually just one corner of the paper, the whole thing is pretty, but I was of course drawn to the hot air balloon. They have some really great stuff coming out this year!
We didn’t want you guys to feel left out so we grabbed as much stuff as we could get our hands on and have created a little giveaway for you! One lucky winner will walk away with a swag bag full of crafting goodies and samples! Check out this blog post to find out how to enter.
So what do you think? Do you love the hot air balloon trend? What would you make with these prints?
