My Current CHA Sneak Peek Favorites

So, it is a little bit of a bi-annual tradition for me to post my favorite CHA (Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show) products. I'm posting a bit before the show, so not all my favorite manufacturers have released their full product lines yet (I'm talking to you Basic Grey) so we might have to have a round two post...

Anyway, on with my favorites!

Hambly Screenprints

I pretty much love most of what Hambly puts out. This particular release looks quite promising.

Pink Paislee: Queen Bee

Greys, yellows and greens with a little flourish action. I'm there.

Studio Calico: Anthology

I've already pre-ordered some of this. Love love love the colors on this.

Also, I wanted to say that now that I'm not "with:" any other kit clubs, I feel free to say that I LOVE STUDIO CALICO. A really lot. I pretty much love everything about the site, the products and the people.

Tattered Angels: New Glimmer Items

Really looking forward to playing with some of these, particularly the chalkboard stuff. I'm actually hoping to see some demo videos during CHA.

7 Gypsies: Avignon Collection

How awesome are these papers? One of my favorite 7G releases ever.

I love pretty much the whole release.  Also, check out the paper tape!

And I looove the new book covers:

And the best for last. These letterpress trays. If love the idea of using them both for stamp storage and to decorate. So good. And way sturdier than the vintage ones.

Maya Road

Seriously, Maya Road, I love your chipboard best. You make minibooks like nobodies business. Especially the canvas ones. I also love quite a few of their clear stamps. The Maya Resist stuff also looks pretty intriguing.

Technique Tuesday

Lots of great designs coming out this time. I looooove the Ali Edwards sets! That camera one... So good.

And of course, the Tim Holtz releases!
First, super excited for the new Distress Inks!

And a bunch of new stamper's anonymous sets!

He also has a paper line and some die-cutting stuff coming out. I hope that he has a few more metal goodies coming too....Love the ornate frames and the hardware from the last release.

Alright, I'm sure that's enough for now. Definitely going to have to do another post. Basic Grey and Making Memories are being super stingy with their sneaks, so I'll be back next week with round two.

Happy Thursday!

We definitely have the same taste in scrappy stuff!

Stephanie said...

Oh sigh. Wishing I were going to CHA this time around. Loving all of the sneaks.

And feel free to confess your SC love! I'm guilty, too.

Laura Fiore said...

Ooooh, good list Christina!

I'm hoping you can tell us after the show if those Glimmer Mist Chalkboard mists would be good for the whitewashed look on our layouts!

Jill said...

Great picks -- this is the first I'm seeing of the stamp collections, and now I'm definitely adding them to my list. Can't wait to have the 7g's stuff in my hands!
