Jenny's Winter CHA 2014 faves

{Reported by Jennifer Larson}

Hello! I was impressed with lots of gorgeous products at CHA this year. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Jillibean Soup Sightseeing Stew

I'm a sucker for travel themes, especially the bright colors in this line.

2. Bella Blvd Max

I love the bright colors and the images, which are more appropriate for older boys. It's rare to find a collection with older boys in mind.

3. Lily Bee Everyday

I love the everyday nature of this collection, the bright but not overwhelmingly bright colors. The colors are perfect for summer, but the icons make it useful for any time of year.

4. Cosmo Cricket wood veneer

I loved all of Cosmo Cricket's collections, but the wood veneer stood out in particular, especially because the piece of wood the little bits come in are decorated to be used on their own. Brilliant!

5.  Studio Calico Essentials

Sorry, me loving the bright colors again (this might be the polar vortex making me long for color), but wouldn't the bright bits in this collection look great mixed in with the other collections I've selected? Love the versatility.

So those are my top 5 picks! I have a ton of runners-up: Bella Blvd Lucky Starz (love the bright colors), Bo Bunny Pop Quiz (a versatile school collection that can be used at all levels of school),  Pink Paislee's Hello Sunshine (my favorite colors yellow!),  Webster's Pages Our Travels (love the sky paper, which I would use for Easter), Fancy Pants Designs Be Different (though it looks like a boy collection, the sunny colors are perfect for summer outdoor pages), and Crate Paper Boys Rock (the floppy disks!). I can't wait to see these collections in stores!
