I think I took more photos of the Jillibean Soup booth than any other at CHA Winter 2013! I was having such a fun time chatting with the girls there (including the fabulous Laina Lamb) and checking out all of the amazing projects by the design team that I didn't even notice how many times I fired off the shutter!
Jillibean Soup has a new partnership with Hampton Arts that has left control of the company in owner Jill Yegerlehner's hands while at the same time moving off production and distribution duties to Hampton Arts. This pairing has allowed Jillibean to expand their embellishment options and include several new items this season!
I was told that the new die-cut Placemats papers were selling so well at the show that Jillibean had already had to put in a reorder from the manufacturer, and these are sure to be a popular item when they hit stores!
Corrugated shapes and Sugar Picks decorative pins are also new to the Jillibean lineup at this show.
There's a new font for Jillibean Soup's popular Alphabeans letter stickers, as well, and I'm loving the skinny letters here!
Jillbean Soup introduced three new paper lines at the show, and we'll start off with a look at Irish Farmhouse Soup.
The Fresh Vegetable collection is also new and has a fun garden/farmer's market theme.
And we'll round out the new paper lines with my personal favorite of the three, Chilled Cucumber. The mix of yellow, green, and aqua in the collection is simply lovely!
Jillibean always packs their booth with simply stunning projects (including a line full of cards that has to be seen to be believed), so I'll finish off the tour with a look at some of those pretties.
These new collections are not quite ready to ship yet, but you can keep a look out for them in the Jillibean section at Two Peas in a Bucket.
