Stash Faves - CHA Edition

Erica here.  Fresh off the floor at CHA and I have a few things to share.  I know everyone has pretty much seen it all but there are a couple of products *I* wanted to share this week.  Products I think you're going to think are so cool!

These take the craft to a different level and I'm so excited to share.


First up is the SMASH.  I typically don't order from K & CO but I happened to be in the booth (EK Success) ordering some Martha Stewart punches when they ask if I've 'smashed' yet.

Uhm, no.  I haven't 'smashed'.   You, like me, probably think the K & Co people are out of their minds.

Let me show you the SMASH.

Here is a link to their blog:


I took a lot of pictures of the actual product and mock ups at the show and think you'll be pleased with this product.  Ships in April so you don't have to wait long.

Some of my favorite items:

Rubber bands - to hold the book closed.  There's even a teal one.

Journal Books - they hold sheets of random journaling cards.

THE PEN!!! - who doesn't love a pen thats a pen AND a glue stick.  Fits in the holder on the side of the book so you'll always have a pen and a gluestick handy to 'smash' your scraps in the book.

The book comes in 4 colors/themes.  Available Mid April.  We'll have pre-orders up so don't worry about getting one.  We'll make sure we have plenty.  More pictures available in the CHA Gallery.

The other product I fell in love with was the Fancy Pants Brag Book.  Its along the same lines as the SMASH but just as cool.

The Brag Book comes with beautiful kraft papers that will work with ANY line.  You get three basic pages.  Lined journaling, 2-up photo sleeves and black pocket pages.

Each of these pictures show the books side by side (empty on the left and embellished on the right.

The last two tools are going to go FAST when they go up for Pre-Order.  I can't keep the Sew Easy tool in stock now and We R Memory Keepers has added NEW heads for the tool. (Shipping in May)

We will receive our next shipment in March of the first 6 heads.  If you would like to pre-order them, we will update the store this week.  We have also ordered the foam pads.  After trying them at the show, we realize that the tools work best with them.  We'll have a tutorial posted soon on how these tools are best used.
We saved the best for last.  The Lucky 8 Punches.  In 8 punches (only 8) you have a diecut sheet of paper.

Instead of the multiple 2 inch sections you get with other border punches, these take just 8 simple steps.
These are available in May/June.

LOVED the Smash video but I probably won't get the actual notebook. I do love the rubber band and pen though and the Sew Easy tools have me rethinking my shopping list- I want them ALL!

So would everyone love a holiday version of the SMASH? I'm thinking a quick and easy December Daily!
