CHA Part 5

Here it is.  The last post from CHA.  I had fun recapping what we saw walking around.  I've got a very long shopping list too!

More May Arts ribbon

Simple Stories - I love their new mini album line.  They come with several sheets of plain office papers and then different page protector styles.  Additional papers in varying styles are also available.  I love this concept for a December Daily or Gratitude journal this year.


Smash - The new book styles are geared towards wedding and baby but they've also come out with larger styles with pockets.  I love these as portfolios.  My mom and I plan a lot of parties and sometimes its hard to find a place to keep ideas and projects.  I do a lot of pinning on Pinterest but sometimes its fun to take the ideas you find and the actual outcome and make a little splash page for a client.  The new larger books (with pockets) are going to be a great resource for us.

And don't forget the fun new embellishments.

 One of the new embellishments - plastic ziploc baggies.

 One of the new larger books.


 I have one of these and I'm going to dig it out!  I used it on a layout about 3 years ago and its been stashed away ever since.  I think this is going to be my new toy!

 Fun tapes!

 A new pad - Top 10.

 Pink Paislee - Oh man, what can I say?  They always have fun releases.  This was no exception.  Only one line blew me away but there are bits and pieces from the other lines that will find their way into my stash.

 Maya Road - this company rules when it comes to funky finds, chipboard and other things.  I love their trims too.


Teresa Collins - I love Teresa but her designs always seem the same.  Same colors, patterns.  And pink.  I'm not a big fan of pink so its hard for me to order her lines.  And then she surprises me with this:

And finally We R Memory Keepers.  I don't own a lot of their lines but every once in a while I see an embellishment or something that catches my eye.  Even a line will catch my eye.  I love their tools and own several of the Sew Easy.
