cha winter 2012 | lily bee

Let's take a stroll through the new Lily Bee offerings as we continue our tour of manufacturer booths from the CHA Winter 2012 trade show!

Lily Bee introduced four new collections at this show, all demonstrating the classic Lily Bee styling. I love how the lines all incorporate such small patterns and tight color combinations. It makes it so easy to mix items both between Lily Bee lines and also with other manufacturer's collections.

First up is Double Dutch, which has the look of a fun summer color palette without being overly themed. That's another great thing about Lily Bee papers- their distinct lack of theme and focus instead on color and pattern make them so classic and timeless.

I admitted over the weekend that I had Project Life on the brain while at the show, and these journaling cards would be a perfect addition to any Project Life stash. Coordinating sets are available for all four new lines, so you shouldn't have any trouble at all finding one to match your style.

Lily Bee expanded their embellishment offerings at this show with their new "Bag of Bits" collections. These tiny packs of printed die cuts are a great way to add a little extra flair to your projects- no punches or cutting required!

And of course there are new sets of their fabulous letter stickers for all the new collections, as well.

Buttercup is far and away my favorite of the new Lily Bee offerings. I'm in love with the aqua, grey, and yellow color palette- it's so happy and sunny!

Handmade is full of homespun charm and quilting/patchwork motifs. This would be a great spring or girly line, and it would even work for a baby book! So many possibilities here.

Victoria Park is the most sophisticated of the four collections with its sassy green, aqua, and fuchsia color scheme. And is that a hexagon pattern that I spy? And a damask? Oh, my!

I seriously could. not. stop. taking photos of the beautiful design team projects that were on display, so I'll round out this post with a sampling of them.
