CHA 2012 – for the love of paper

There was so many neat things to see at CHA this year. Here’s some of my favorites. I wish I had taken better notes on where I spotted everything, so I could link it all. So I apologize in advance.

GCD Studios had this fun tissue paper flower wall. I love the look of all these giant flowers together. Wouldn’t they make a fun photo backdrop?! They also had this fun mismatched alphabet wall all covered in different papers.

Cricut had a fun one too!

Silhouette had a great wall full of paper pinwheels. I love the look of these all together all different shapes and sizes.

I love seeing what people can create with paper. Here are two paper dresses that I loved. I love how simple this newspaper dress is with a glitter trim.

This dress was over the top! A total masterpiece. All made of paper.

Also, birds made of paper. These two birds were such works of art, so neat to see!

So many scrapbook lines are now coming out with Washi Tape (that Japanese rice paper tape). October Afternoon has a few coming out that look so fun: Days of the week and Date with a chevron pattern on it! Also Studio Calico has a few that I am loving too!

A few new to me clear stamp companies with such a fun style. Last year I fell in love with Lawn Fawn, and this year I found: Paper Smooches. I love how simple their designs are.

Also Market Street Stamps. Here are three different cards made with their cute honeycomb background stamp. I love how they are all so different!

I loved this United States of Buttons… from Buttons Galore and more.

The Plaid booth had this fun styro-foam mobile with aliens and astronauts…not paper, but very cute. :)

I know we’ve all seen these paper medallions (aka paper rosettes or paper lollies), but I loved this version of one at the Crate Paper booth highlighting one of their new lines just released. Very cool!

I loved Basic Grey’s new canvases that you can decorate with paper. They come in a few different styles. What a fun way to highlight a whole line of coordinating paper.

And lastly…this cute little paper cupcake. I loved the curls of paper on top to look like frosting. Also these little Hershey kisses with paper flags and signs in them. Cute!

Lots of fun stuff, huh?! Out of all the fun things here, what’s YOUR favorite?
