CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
And CHA is open for Winter 2013! I’m here in Anaheim for the big trade show in the craft industry. Hundreds of companies are here to debut their collections for 2013, and part of my lovely press duty is to share all that goodness with you. I’m starting with one of my all-time favourites: Jenni Bowlin Studio.

I have two top picks at the JBS booth this time: a new line called Modern Mercantile designed by Lisa Dickinson and Jenni’s new stamps – but actually there are lots of lovely new embellishments throughout this JBS release.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Modern Mercantile is a lovely new twist on Jenni’s vintage style, with some brighter spring colours and a mix of current trend motifs like feathers with the ephemera style we know from Jenni’s ticket stubs and ledgers.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Cut-apart cards are perfect for journaling boxes on a 12×12 page or for the small pockets of divided page protectors, of course.

All the papers are double-sided, cardstock weight paper. (I have a video to come with the lovely Lisa telling us a bit about her design inspiration, but I’ll have to find a better internet connection so I can share them!)

Some design inspiration for the Modern Mercantile papers, plus some of Jenni’s new embellishments – including more paper feathers.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
And here are those new paper feathers – the last release of these were very popular (Glitter Girl is a big fan too). This time there are kraft feathers with text and other small patterns plus a colourful floral set.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Flatbacks are Jenni Bowlin’s new flair or badge style embellishments – perfect for adding dimension in a flash. They come in three different packs, all with a classic vintage style. I definitely have my eye on the set on the left.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
And new mini card sets – great for layering and a good size for cards, scrapbook pages, and other projects.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Plus brand new tape! These are really rich colours and versatile patterns, but there is one in particular that has my heart:

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
…sigh. Whitewashed woodgrain washi tape. Seriously, just typing that sounds so pretty it’s almost a song lyric.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
New additions in the True Vintage offerings include price signs and tickets. These are real vintage pieces, so each pack is unique, all sourced from Jenni’s adventures in the antique world.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
JBS rub-ons are always such high quality (I may have stocked up on a lifetime supply of those beautiful large butterfly rub-ons with no regret!) and there are new designs including feathers and jars. That jar can do something rather beautiful for an embellishment, by the way:

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
…stamped on vellum with a pocket of stars and sequins inside, then stitched onto the project. So pretty!

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
New chipboard packs include bare feathers and leaves read to be customised and printed dominoes, bingo chips, and clock faces.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
And these are my second pick from the JBS booth: the new clear stamps, all in sets of two to make little books or perfect for creating journaling cards for pages or pocketed page protectors.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
They stamp so beautifully, and would create such lovely gift wrap tags, especially dressed up with a photo in the frame stamp a bit like a paper locket.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
Taking a look around the rest of the booth, there are some lovely twists like combining the vellum butterflies with the bingo cards. As a product, this is a great idea for those who sell completed crafts rather than just supplies, but if you have these items in your stash, there’s your inspiration for a great gift or something to dress up your own wall.

CHA Winter 2013 :: Jenni Bowlin Studio
And of course, it wouldn’t be Jenni Bowlin without some red and black to grace the booth!

This is the mid-release Red and Black collection from just a month or two ago. You can find this in stores now. (There’s a sheet from this collection in my January picks for the Best of Both worlds kit.)

New releases from Jenni Bowlin Studio will ship to stores in February!

By the way: at the end of CHA on Tuesday, I’ll take all the comments and throw them in a hat for a few prize drawings. Just something informal, but I’ll just mention it now and catch up with you about that with some winners on Wednesday, if that sounds good!

  134. Amy Says:

    Thanks Shimelle for sharing.

  142. Geralyn Says:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful CHA pictures and new products information. I’m completely overwhelmed by all the great new products.

  143. Cathy R Says:

    I love, love, love the rub ons!

  144. Tammie Says:

    I’ve been a sucker for Mason/Ball jars since I was a kid – I’ve stuck everything in them from pennies to buttons… so I was happy to see the trend come along in papercrafting. But these are by far my fave jars ever. I so wish that were a stamp set instead of rub-ons – I kind of suck at rub-ons, but that won’t deter me from purchasing these. I LOVE THEM! And of course there are a few more picks I’m sure I can’t live without – total agreement about the whitewashed woodgrain washi-tape (it is quite lyrical isn’t it?!).

  145. macy Says:

    Everything looks so great (even better in person, huh?) Absolutely love the stamps for making mini books. Thanks for sharing!

  146. carole A Says:

    love,love,love jenni bowlin. Such gloriousness at CHA – lucky you!!

  151. Alison Day Says:
