Momenta's on the MOVE!

MomentaNew England's largest paper crafting industry supplier, headquartered in Portsmouth, NH, is packing up and heading to the Craft & Hobby Association's Mega Show, happening THIS weekend, July 10 - 14, 2014, in Anaheim, California.

When craft retailers and designers from around the world stop in to the Momenta Booth #813, they'll be greeted by some of the most knowledgeable people in the business:

(L-R) Michael Barker, President; Kellie McGowan, Sales and Customer Service Manager; and Jackie O'Connor, Art Director and twelve-year member of the Momenta team ~
Kellie (middle) not only supports sales representatives and
retailers, but she's the real, live person that answers consumer
questions at Momenta's 800 customer service number!

I got to fly through their studios for a sneak peek before all the {NEW} goodies were packed up for the show - and I'm sharing the piccies with YOU!  First on the list is the wonderful selection of stickers, for which Momenta is famous for ~

They pay particular attention to ensuring they have a great mix of textures within the selections, from gloss finish, to glitter, and foil ~
Next up are the "thicker stickers."  Already mounted on solid foam core with an adhesive backing, doing all the "fussy" work for you. 

Look at the detail in these foam core embellishments.  I almost made off with those owls, I'm telling you.  Unbelievably cute - and the colors are right on trend.

The layered embellishments have so much detail ~

These dimensional stickers were absolutely gorgeous.  There's a mini-album right there, right?  

Yes, the Momenta team appreciates the consumer demand for quality wooden rubber stamps - and they're taking them to the next level.  See the doily and frame stamp sets?  These are nesting stamps that separate into three individual sizes, while being able to stack together into the space of one.  It is a huge help for storage and organization in a studio.

Oh, the paper stacks - I think this is the segment of their product line that truly shows the amount of professional design, trend-tracking and consumer responsiveness that Momenta puts into each item they bring to market.

When you hit the Momenta booth at CHA Mega Show, there's a reason you're going to be remarking about how attractive their product line is.  They've done their homework, well in advance.

I've saved, what I believe, is the best for last:  Momenta introduced these cut-and-emboss dies last year and they are expanding on the selection.  The dies cut the shapes and each comes packaged with interchangeable inserts if you wish to emboss the shape with different reliefs.  Or, as another option, you can take advantage of just using the embossing pieces separately.  True customization for your project.

So there's Momenta's 2014 CHA Mega Show Sneak Peek!  What was your favorite item of the preview?

Momenta invites retailers and designers to join their continued success in Booth #813 as they celebrate the recent acquisition of an acclaimed boutique paper crafting brand, Little Yellow Bicycle (read more about that HERE).  **BUYERS: be sure to ask Michael, Kellie or Jackie about Momenta's SHOW SPECIALS!

I can't WAIT to see where the Momenta team takes that in 2014!
