CHA

As most of you know, CHA Summer is around the corner. I've been to a few CHA's before, and to be brutally honest, I never really understood all the hype. I'm not into meeting scrap "celebs"--and I've had much better luck staying home and ordering early before the mad rush. So that is exactly what I plan to do this time around, with no regrets.

Since a lot of people are wising up to that truth, most all of the manufacturers have opted to reveal their new releases online, including issuing show specials. I have spent the better part of this week ordering pieces parts for the next 4-5 months, and can't wait to show you what I have planned!!I have been blessed with amazing reps, and I've even started to receive samples, so I'm getting excited about what is coming down the pike...

While I won't give anything away, I will share a few of my favorites from what I've seen so far (in no particular order...(just click on the links to see more) And yes, a lot of it has already been ordered!! A lot more will be coming through the week as well...

Scenic Route Sonoma--Love it. All of it. And they have come out with really cool panoramic chipboard albums too. YUM.

Scribble Scrabble--I think the Sweet & Sour and the Autumn Afternoon stuff is delish!

Karen Russell--There isn't a single piece of any collection I DON'T want.

Collage Press--Jackson & Camden. My two new BFF's.

American Crafts--Love the Flair stuff and all the Thickers, of course.

Pink Paislee
--The Top Siders in Vintage Moon and Pop Fashion are yummy.

Glitz Design--That Basics line is for sure going to be fun to play with!

7Gypsies--The Savannah Flocked paper will be perfect at Christmas...

Making Memories
--looks like everything they do is on the money lately...

Okay, so what are your favorites so far? Whether you're in love with the links listed here or would like to add some of your own, what are you excited about seeing?

Have a great weekend...and I'll post the winner to the RAK tomorrow...stay tuned!

Trish, Oh my gosh! I truly love it all. I don't know how you do it because I would have such a hard time deciding. I am so glad we have you to put together the most amazing kits. I did see a sneak peak of Theresa Collin's Spooktacluar line and it looks really yummy too.

Trish, These are some beautiful products. I have been eyeballing that SR already, and the 7gypsies flocked paper is more than gorgeous. And some of the stamps in the Pink Paislee are of interest.
I just picked up some Hambly clear 12x12 yesterday. And Rhonna Farrer has some great looking holiday papers floating around here and there. Am in the holiday creative way right now...yikes!
Thanks for all those great peaks. Sigh...can't wait to see them all in kit form.

I love the Collage Press line and the Pink Paislee line. I'm a bit overwhelmed with my current stash so I'm anxiously scrapping a lot so I can buy all new stuff. Thanks for all those peeks...

Looks like some yummy stuff coming up. Had my eyes on those pink paislee diecuts also - so thrilled to see them in the lineup. Lovin' all the diecut papers for sure, but do hope you'l keep the kits a bit on the brighter side... not too much fall color. But I have total faith it's going to be a great few months with you in control!

Hi Trish! Thanks for the preview! LOVED the new 7 Gypsies ATC products, perfect timing since I have been working on the one I purchased from you! The Making Memories "sugar coated" embellishments look nice too. Pink Paislee has me watering at the mouth! Tami

I'm pretty jazzed about the new Tinkering Ink and Cosmo Cricket. Mr Campy is pretty funny. I'm waiting to see what KI Memories wows me with.

Ooooh!!!! I went though the links quickly and I LOVED the new Savannah flocked papers from 7Gypsies!!! I want all of that paper for X-mas... and the Suzy Snowflake from Scribble Scrabble was cute, too! Hugs!!!

Vanessa, Florida, USA said...

Oh wait!!! I also LOVE the new Jackson Lodge from one of my all-time faves, Collage Press... I can't wait to see more of it... and the Pink Paislee Vintage Moon (I think that's what it's called) is oh so cute!!!
