While I’m away at BlogHer 10 and hanging out at the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia offices, papercrafts specialist and dear friend Lisa Falduto has her report of trends at CHA. Enjoy!
Flowers, flowers everywhere!Â That was a constant theme as I walked the trade show floor at the Craft and Hobby Trade show this past week in Rosemont, Ill.Â It is almost safe to say that I saw some type of flower in every booth at the show!Â I love flowers so this assignment was right up my alley!Â So off I went, camera in hand and began snapping shots!
This photo was taken in the Graphic 45 booth and their booth display was amazing!Â I love the blend of orange, green and purple here.
This band of woven flowers was beautiful and this is really a hot trend right now.Â Lots of fabric swirled together to bring you soft blossoms.
How adorable is this floral topped cupcake?Â I must confess pink is my favorite color and this entire design was just “yummy.”
This particular photo shows a lovely display of jewelry and next to it a wonderful flower.
You will make quite a fashion statement when you add some fabric flowers to your shoes!Â What a fun way to dress up an old pair.
I loved the flowers inside this old quart raspberry box.Â Brings back raspberry picking memories from my childhood.Â I think this is a beautiful display of flowers.
Check out this wonderfully displayed ensemble!Â These beautiful pieces were made using the new McGill Flower punches and I am hoping to be able to report more on these very soon!
This hand crafted floral frame is absolutely stunning and I had to get a picture to share with you!
Look at the fantastic floral work on the scrapbook layout!Â This picture was taken from the Prima booth and their designers do wonderful things with flowers!
This photo is fitting to be placed last in this post because it says “I love you” and that is exactly how I feel about flowers.Â I am thrilled to see that flowers continue to be such a hot trend in the crafting industry!
Now stay tuned toÂ this very blogÂ because over the next few weeks I will be bringing you all kinds of paper crafting goodies that I picked up at the showÂ just to shareÂ withÂ our very special Craft Test Dummy readers!
