Hot products to warm up our winter

Here are some of the products and trends I think will be hot coming out of CHA-S. What do you think?
  • More of the warm, rich colors from January's CHA plus brighter blues (mentioned here)
  • Texture and more texture - flocked, glitter, embroidered, stuff that screams "touch me!"
  • More felt, velvet and lace, especially in rolls and ribbons, but also in flowers. Look for it from Queen & Co., Prima, Maya Road and others
  • More interactive projects - see-through pages, flip books, hide & seek flap book and barn doors from Piggy Tales
  • Anything transparent, like acetate, film, acrylic - the digital layered look goes beyond paper
  • Home printers and multiple ways to use them - think hybrid and transparencies
  • Glue Arts' Glue Glider Pro, which won the Art Materials Magazine Most Innovative Product Award - this is a must-have for serious scrappers
  • Prima - with a special eye on the new Printables - something very different for scrapbooking (let's cross over to the art material aisle and grab some water brushes for our distress inks!)
Come back for more as I add to the list!
