Although I wasn't able to be at CHA Summer 2009 in person, I was there in heart and soul and wanted to still bring you my TOP picks of what I have seen coming from some amazing companies!
Let's start with COLLECTIONS that I'm excited about...
Upsy Daisy Designs "A New Day" (shown at top)... love their collections and love that they are CANADIAN!!!
Crate Paper "Cottage Collection"... love these colours... always something awesome from this family owned company!!!
Making Memories "Great Escape" collection.... now this would be perfect for our CROP TROPICAL Scrapbooking Escape in Cancun in Feb. 2010!!! Wanna come????
My Mind's Eye "Ooh La La" his and hers collection... always hard to find great masculine products... love this one!
Glitz Designs "Plum Crazy" collection... purple is a very good thing!!!
Fancy Pants "Christmas Magic"... yes, it's HOT out now, but many plan well ahead with their Christmas crafting and I loved this combo... elegant yet fun!
Onto other simply neat new ideas and products...
Little Yellow Bicycle "Gratitude and Faith" line... perfect for those of us who want to include more of our heart and faith in our scrapbooks!!
Tattered Angels "Glimmer Mist"... even more new wonderful colours and a schwack of new fun products to play with!!!
Prima "Pearls and Crystals"... onto every page a little BLING must fall and Prima has created some affordable ways of helping us do that with these!!
Basic Grey "Doilies"... a company that never fails to impress... how fun will these be to add to our layouts or cards???!!!!!
Hambly "Clear Stickers"... I am all about butterflies and can hardly wait to get my hands on these... perfect for the butterfly girls in our lives!!
Flower Soft "Polar White"... I admit I haven't yet gotten to play with this new ever popular product, but can see so much potential especially for cardmakers!!
American Crafts "Faux Leather D-Ring 12x12 binders".... soooooo excited because I personally like binders over post-bound and look at all the colours!! Wooo hooo!!!!
And finally... a few companies to take note of for their desire to think beyond themselves to intentionally help out others who could use it... in this case two companies supporting Breast Cancer Awareness...
Making Memories "Pink Slice"... portion of the sales of this fun pink personal cutting device (which we loved using on our Crop and Cruise Scrapbooking Cruise) will go towards helping fight the Breast Cancer battle.
Neatnix "Breast Cancer Awareness Stuff Buckets and Bags"... love, love, love their organizational aids and now love, love, love that they also aid such a great cause!!!
