While at CHA I saw so much beauty and splendor, but I must admit I had a favorite. I thought Graphic 45's display was the most creative & intriguing, and pulled me right in. Their Steampunk Debutante collection was definitely a "stand out." I loved the modern colors, but vintage design & appeal. The contrast between dark vintage tones and the bright teal is genius. The steampunk style & theme is perfectly done. My teenage daughter introduced me to steampunk jewelry about a year ago, and I love it! I'm glad to see steampunk making its way into scrapbooking. This collection is absolute perfection. I also loved their new Graphic 45 Staples collection. All of the pieces look like a perfect add-on to just about any of their other collections. I'm extremely excited to see them coming out with mini albums and embellishments! Hallowe'en In Wonderland had already hit stores, so I have it of course, and it wasn't a big surprise, but the display was magnificent.
Here's just a small sample of what I saw. If this doesn't inspire you, nothing will. I'm dying to get my hands on some and start creating!
