Favorite Designer Products

Designers love to be creative and there is nothing more exciting than an opportunity to work with a new product. Manufacturers are constantly developing new products and often send samples to designers, who are willing to use them to create projects and participate in blog hops, providing boundless inspiration for the customer.

The best place for designers to see what's new is at the annual Craft & Hobby Mega (CHA) show held in January; products that have now made their way into the craft stores. This year was no exception and many DCC members left the show, their heads spinning with new ideas and opportunities.  You can see a re-cap of the new hot products here and designers have added links to their favorite products below. Please let us know which project features one of your favorite products by adding your vote then comment below which new products you would like to work with.

Gifts for Him

It's Father's Day on the 19th, so the First Monday theme for June is "Gifts for Him".  

Not just for Father's Day, there are lots of times throughout the year when we need a "guy" gift.  Here are some designer projects for inspiration....  Enjoy!
