I always love CHA time. LOVE seeing all the new goodies my favorite companies come out with. LOVE anticipating their arrival in stores and, of course, if I'm lucky, in my MemoryWorks catalog!
Here is a quick roundup of some of my favorites, in no particular order:
I adore the muted colors in this line, with a touch of black and white. I love that the design is pretty all-purpose, and that I can use it with my older, childhood photos or with my more current ones.
In this line, I'm loving the bolder colors. I'm always a huge fan of blue and green, maybe because I tend to scrapbook mostly masculine layouts (what with being the only female in a family of 4). Again, the patterns are good for everyday scrapping, and can be used with almost any photos.
Little Yellow Bicycle has become one of my favorite companies in recent years, and I tend to love a lot of their stuff. I just love this new line, even though it uses more reds and oranges (there are touches of my blues and greens, but not many). I'm envisioning lots of lovely cards, and maybe some layouts of my lovely nieces as well. :)
Be still my heart! Two of my favorite things in one product line - travel and Simple Stories! Overwhelmingly, most of what I scrapbook are vacation photos, so I'm always excited to see new travel lines come out, and when I find one I like, I try to get as much of it as I can. The way Simple Stories packages their collections, you get a TON of product for your money. Even though I'm not sure where or when my next vacation will take place, I'm thinking I might even be able to scrap an entire album with these goodies.
Something about this line has really captured my imagination! While I don't tend to scrap a lot of food- or kitchen-related photos, I can see using a lot of the patterns in these papers for other types of pages. This one will be fun to play with, I think, and the embellishments are yummy! (pun intended ;)
I like this line for obvious reasons - those being that I have a husband and 2 sons to scrap about. These patterns are super-versatile, and I can use them with most any photos of my 3 favorite subjects. I also really like the flags and label stickers, and am eager to play with those.
