Each year as I walk the show floor at CHA, I’m always in awe of how the paper and product designers come up with such great looks. I took the chance to interview a few of them and find out more, and I’m happy to share the clips with you today.

Curious how Studio Calico came up with the designs for the Anthology Collection? April Foster shares the story behind it.

It’s always fun to chat with Elizabeth Kartchner, and I couldn’t resist asking her about how she came up with her new Dear Lizzy collection for American Crafts. (A special thanks to Erin Payne for filming the video.)

In this video, Paula Cheney shares her inspiration for creating the new Vintage Recipe Holder by 7gypsies. I love it!
