Laina here today!
Ahhh....it's CHA week in Anaheim. It's like the ToySRUs Christmas Toy Catalog for scrapbookers.
Here are some of new tools and innovative products that have caught my eye.
Quickutz released some new fonts, shapes and embossing folders this week. I am already planning on buying the new Garden 4x8 font.
More shapes and fonts will be released soon. This one is adorable:
Tim Holtz has a new machine that looks like a suitcase and cuts and embosses and texturizes. Honestly, I'm pretty confused about it. BUT what I am really excited about are his new tranparent tapes and his embossing folders.
I love embossing folders. Obsessed right now is a good word for it. Here is a tutorial on embossing folders I made. Finally some really really really good textures!
GCD and Melody Ross have a new "texturizing" tool for chipboard. I'm not convinced on this one. I think I'll wait until Archiver's gets it for demo.
I've actually changed my mind on the i-Topper tool. When I saw paper brads being made with it, my reaction was so-so. Now that I have seen fabric brads made - WOW. They are also coming out with backings to make magnets and buttons. Saving an Archiver's 30% off for this one. Imaginisce also has a new rhinestone tool called iRock.
EK Success has 78 new punches coming out plus some of my faves - MARTHA BORDER PUNCHES!
Maya Road has some new "resist" product coming out that can be used with glimmer mists. (By the way - I love a lot of their new mini chipboards too!)
Lots of new templates from Crafter's Workshop.
WeRMemoryKeepers has the Cinch. It looks like it will function like a BindItAll.
A new floor model of the Clip it Up from Simply Renee. Yes, you need it! :)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist has a bunch of new products.
Creative Imaginations is bringing out a line line called "cuttables". The woodgrain sheet is going to be a must have for me.
How will you decide to spend your allowance?
