Another CHA bites the dust...

A few days ago, CHA-W finished. Booths have now (or are in the process) been taken down. Orders have been placed, designers dreams have been visited (and hopefully fufilled), and scrappers everywhere are looking for the latest and greatest in products. As I viewed various manufacturer “sneak peeks” and photos from the show, I started to create my own “wish list” of the latest and greatest products I’m dying for. Here are a few items on my list:

Luxe Designs Paper and “The Rub”: While the Luxe team kept everything under wraps until the last possible moment (wise choice!), what they didn’t keep under wraps was the buzz generating about this new company. From what I’ve heard Luxe was THE new exhibitor hit of the show. I know I personally can’t wait to get my hands on their new papers, and on their rub-ons cleverly titled “The Rub”.

Maya Road: Yes, I know I’m on their design team – but I have to buy my stuff too! I simply CANNOT wait to get my hands on the new Scroll Corners, Tapestry, Clocks, Motifs, Keys chipboard pieces. Of course, life just wouldn’t be the same without the Paisley and Flourishes Sheers too. The Scallop Coaster Box set, and Scallop Ring Book are definitely on my list. And those paisley rub-ons? Don’t you hear them calling my name??? If I didn’t already have their new stamps though – they’d be the very first thing I’d HAVE to have.

Basic Grey Patterned Papers and Precision File Set: This little kit is just darling – and so timely in a chipboard bonanza! It’s a kit filled with various filing tools sized to fit into the nooks, crannies, corners, and tight spots we find in chipboard. While I realize everything in this kit could probably be found at a local beauty supply store, I think I’ll buy it from Basic Grey. Their products have always been high quality in the past – why should this be any different? (Be sure to check out their booth photos over at! There is some SERIOUS eye candy! I’m so filled with inspiration – it’s a shame I have to work a day job!)

Heidi Swapp Damask Mask and Stickers: I don’t know what’s come over me, but I am so in love with damask patterns and flourishes. Heidi Swapp released a new line that includes this pattern – and with flair! Can’t wait to play with them!

Autumn Leaves: Okay, you knew I wouldn't be leaving them out of my wish lists, RIGHT? First and foremost Miz. Foofala herself finally got Autumn Leaves to come out with an idea book based on all things Foof-a-licious. It's titled "Life the Foof-A-Life"! LOVE IT! I can't wait to flip through this sure to be tasty treat! I also can't wait to get my grubs on Rhonna's new papers and fab-U stamps! Seriously, I love her flourishy and scrolly stamps, they're a super staple in my work!

Scenic Route: Both of their new papers lines are incredible. I love the color schemes – they’re so versatile! I can’t wait to get them both (entirely) with the coordinating alpha chipboard pieces and rub ons! YUM!

Around the Block Tape Writer: As a DYMO lover, this cute little tool is screaming my name. I can’t wait to see the various tape (with scalloped edges??? Be still my heart!), and the fonts they bring out for us! Yay!

All things Junkitz: I was really excited for the release of Teresa’s Extreme Boy line, but everything they released this show looks exciting! From the papers, to the chipboard pieces, to calendar kits, to rubber stamps – I want it all!

Technique Tuesday: While we all know I’m addicted to unmounted acrylic stamps (really, I do love them!), It’s going to be hard to narrow down what I’m dying for from Technique Tuesday. I know I’ll be purchasing the Provence uppercase and lowercase stamps and the new Icing on the Cake cupcake builder sets.

Timeless Touches: WOW! Timeless Touches released a few really great stitching templates that I KNOW I’ll be adding to my wish list. The rounds (circles) and flourishing stitches ones are definites!

All My Memories: Oh My STARS! Their new crop bags and totes are GORGEOUS! I don't know WHEN I'll own them - but I surely will! They're so...modern and stylist! LOVE IT!

LizzieAnn Stamps: For a stamp addict, admitting that I love another company is nothing new. But, these stamps are just darling. They're very country style in some aspects, and modern in others. I love that they are unmounted and that they come in their own storage system. It's hard to find hand drawn images anymore - and I'm sure that some computer work was done on them too, but they're just darling!

Okay, so spill it - what's on your Wish List?

What's on my list? Too dang much! I love the new Basic Grey, the colors and patterns are awesome! I agree with you about the chipboard tools, they are top on my list. The new Heidi Swapp ghost butterflies and wings. I found a website that has compiled kits of the new Heidi and Elsie stuff, very excited! The new Fancy Pants, Maya Road sheers, and the Around the Block Dymo, so cool, can't wait! Gonna have to book some photography sessions to get some extra cash! :)
