My CHA Favorites

I've been following most of the sneak peeks coming out from various companies for the CHA-Winter show (Craft & Hobby Association). There are a couple of MUST HAVES for me and some others that I like a lot. Without further ado, here's my Top 5 list so far.

Number 1 - American Crafts "Dear Lizzy"
This line is so fun, whimsical, girly and spring-like! Perfect for Easter layouts! Check it out here.

Number 2 - Lily Bee "Hello Sunshine"
I have loved Lily Bee for a while now. Their French Couture and Vintage Poppy lines were yummy. But this is by far my favorite yet! You can see some sample layouts on their blog.

Number 3 - Maya Road Chipboard
I must have these mini chipboard banners and butterflies!!! And those metallic ink pads, too!!! Then there's the flowers and dangling chandelier beads!!!

Number 4 - 7Gypsies "Avignon" Paper, Printer's Tray, etc.
There are so many goodies I love, including the Avignon paper, the printer's tray and receipt holder... oh, and check out the new binder rings, self-adhesive grommet reinforcers and knobs, too!!! Wow. Click here and be sure to scroll all the way down to see it all.

Number 5 - Studio Calico "Anthology"
Very cool prints and trendy designs. Visit the Studio Calico blog to see it all.

As always, my love for Prima continues. Their new flowers are gorgeous! Check out their new lines here and here (NOTE: I do NOT like their Umbrella paper line!)

Jenny Bowlin also has some nice stuff coming out, such as these banner stickers! I saw Celine Navarro create a banner on one of her layouts and I've been wanting to give it a try, but now I am noticing that it's the new trend.

EDITED: I just had to add these pics of the new Jenny Bowlin self-adhesive butterflies with rhinestones. LOVE THEM!!!

I haven't seen anything yet from October Afternoon or Collage Press so if you see those, please let me know!

Cocoa Daisy has a special section on their message board devoted to CHA sneak peeks. Click here to check it out.

What's at the top of your list? Is there anything that you absolutely love from one of your favorite manufacturers? Please share!

Peace and happy scrapping!

I have nothing to share because we always like the same stuff... LOL... I can't wait to start seeing these new lines in our kits. Yummy stuff... I must continue to purge and use my current stash.
