CHA... Part Deaux

I know you're pining away, waiting for the remainder of my CHA Reviews. I would be too if I hadn't gone myself! :) But, please give me a few more days as I get my home back into a cohesive piece and finish unpacking.

Why don't we have a contest? I will RAK a package of goodies - all mostly from CHA - to one of the lucky comment posters! All you need to do is post what review you enjoyed most, and choose a number between 1 and 500!

Finally, here's a partial list of the company reviews I have left to share with you:

All My Memories - AMM released quite a bit of fun new products. The first being right in with the trend of "Couture". In fact, this Collection is titled "Couture" and includes lines with the names, dapper, demure, sassy, savvy, suave, and swanky. All of these lines are appealing, and screaming at me to be purchased. AMM's Uptown and Urban Chic albums continue to be my favorite mini-album company, and their new handbag albums are SO on my list! Imagine how adorable it will be as a "friends" or "girlfriends" album!!! Thier KISS letters are right in line with the home decorating movement we're seeing right now in the papercrafting world - and will soon be on my walls! Way to go, All My Memories! P.S. You can shop for your favorite products RIGHT from their website - awesome!

Anna Griffin - As always, the Anna Griffin product releases bring me back to the romantical days of "Jane Eyre" and other romatic girly movies. I've always been a fan of AG products (and my stash will attest to it!). Everything is absolutely beatiful. Her colorful and creative rubons, mouth watering patterned paper designs, fabulously flourishing embellishments, and high quality (and gorgeous!) albums left me breathless!

Autumn Leaves - (the main line, not the awesome side lines) - Always a favorite of mine is Autumn Leaves. I often sit waiting, pining away for any stitch or morsel of information as to what they've released. It was a treat to see first hand everything they had in store for us, and it did not dissapoint me in the least! As the leader in awesome idea books, they're adding to their collection (wahoo!) with "The Me Book", and "Freestyle". To Be Continued.....

Same Differences - Same Differences is a company with a clear difference in the scrapbooking market. While most manufacturers work to have their products appeal to every scrapper, the Same-Difference product line was originally centered so that those with disabilities (and differences) would have products to utilize in scrapbooking for themselves and others. This creative and fresh approach to scrapbooking has only yeilded positve thoughts and comments. Kim Luty's (owner, designer, and creative heart extraoirdinare) new CHA2006 product releases are not 'use specific' and can be applied to many other themes and layouts. The product releases included "Straight to the Point" rub-on's (on my personal shopping list) and transparancy Phrases. Same-Differences also released their first patterned paper line, designed by Becky Thompson. The colors on this line are bright, happy, and incredibly energetic. By browsing the Same-Differences gallery, you can get many great ideas for ways to use these fun new products. Way to go Kim and the S-D Team!

Heather! I'm totally enjoying your reviews of CHA. You write so well.

I can't believe I missed so much! I managed to miss Maya Road, Fontwerks, Crate Paper, and several others.

I loved the new TT stamps. I know that I'll be buying a few of the new sets. I

I also can't wait to play with the new Maisy Mo doodle rub-ons and paint cans! They're going to be big fun!

I also can't wait to play with all the new chipboard stuff from so many different companies. I'll be in altering Nirvana! :-D

However, one of my biggest high points of CHA was meeting you!

Heather, I liked Maya Road's review. I haven't really looked for their line before, but now I'm intrigued. I thought they only did fibers. #375
