CHA Favorites

Hi my friends!

I've been sick this week :( No fun! Turns out I have bronchitis. Yuck! Why is everyone getting sick in the middle of summer? Anyway, I started my antibiotics today so I am resting now and hoping to be better soon...

In the meantime, I've been checking out all the new releases that are coming out at the CHA Summer event later this month and I'm actually surprised that I really don't like most of the releases this time around. But there are some that I LOVE and here are the ones that really stand out for me... Now for the eye candy (click on the links to view the entire collections):

My fave release is probably Studio Calico's Elementary line (avail in September). LOVE this entire release! The bright papers and cool designs make me so happy and the quality of their products is top-notch. Although it's a "Back to School" theme, it's very versatile and can be used for just about anything. (I promise, I am NOT getting paid for this! LOL!)

I also really like Seaside from October Afternoon because I can see myself using this line with some weekend beach photos. Plus, the patterns are way cool!

Jenni Bowlin is always on my top list and this time around she has a line called Family Tree. I love most of the papers and all the NEW embellies! Those new vellum and pearl butterflies and the chipboard butterflies that coordinate with the banner stickers. SWOON! I love all her butterflies!!! And more vintage buttons in YELLOW!

Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line is absolutely adorable! Too freakin' cute!

Sassafras has a new line called Indie Girl and I like most of the papers and embellies. I think it would complement other collections very well.

And finally, Crate Paper's Restoration line is full of vintage patterns that really appeal to me.

I don't have the time or patience (and I don't feel well!) to post all the photos so check out the links. I'm sure that I haven't seen everything yet, but so far this is what I like from all the new releases. And I definitely must have the first 3 on this list!

If you are interested, both The Scrap Review and Scrapbook Update have links to all the CHA releases...

So, what do you like most so far??? Please share!

Peace and happy scrapping!

I'm loving most of those lines too. Jenni Bowlin has a bunch of other stuff I just found out about. CK has an ad with halloween buttons... Delicious...I hope you get better for tomorrow.
