Friday Special: Early CHA Sneak Peeks!!

Today we are going to do something a bit different (featured artists will be back next week)! I am going to share some sneak peeks I am super excited about! If you aren't familiar with CHA, it is where all of the scrapbook (and craft) companies debut their NEW products. This is exciting because who doesn't love new product. Luckily we get to see some sneak peeks early of the new releases!! Exciting, huh? I am going to share a few images I am psyched about! All images are posted with permission.  PLEASE share in the comment section the links to those you are most excited about! Note: you can see ALL of the sneak peeks updated almost daily here: .

1. The first bunch of images I am going to share are by Anna Griffin! I am in love with these papers, I got to work with the papers and embellishments and they are so colorful and fun! The first collection is named Carmen. You can read about all of the collections here .  I love these BRIGHT summer colors and embellishments, they are just perfect for my taste!

The next collection by Anna Griffin is Willow, I found this so easy to work with for family photos, friends and other themes. It has navy blues, blacks, grays, pinks, and yellows which go together so well and make it super easy to co-ordinate with my photos.

Lastly, I am sharing a collection I haven't seen in person, Fifi and Fido! It looks fabulous for pets and I can't wait to use it on my four pets!

2. Next up for sneak peeks I am totally excited about is My Minds Eye!! The first peek is of Good Day Sunshine! I am totally in love with everything about this collection, the colors, the patterns, etc!! Check it out!

My Minds Eye is also putting out a collection called Stella and Rose! How cool is this collection. It has oranges (my fav), pinks, blues, well everything I love! You have to see these papers and embellishments ... this makes me want to scrap this collection right now!

3. Next, up is GCD Studios!! There are so many fabulous collections, it is hard to pick a few just a few to highlight because all of the collection are so unique and fun! Up first is Soul Food by Melody Ross. I think everyone is going to love all of neat papers and embellishments!  The full links are: papers, embellishments 1, embellishments 2.  Here are some images I am in love with!

Next, by GCD Studios is super fun collection called Fun House! They are just perfect for those summer fair and circus photos I have waiting to be scrapped it! I am totally excited about these colors and TONS of embellishments. The full links are: paper and embellishments . Check out these fabulous sneaks!

One more quick peek is of the new Donna Salazar Collection called Spring in Bloom for GCD Studios. Check out a few of her GORGEOUS papers!

4. The final sneak peek I am posting today is by Kaisercraft! They are releasing a bunch of gorgeous new collections and you can see all of the sneaks here. The first collections I am sharing from their company is called "Class of '87".  First of all I love the title, since I was class of '91 and my sister and husband always brag about being the class of '88. So, this is right in my time period! What I am love about this collection is the super fun papers and the perfect colors made for school!

The next collection is called Bubblegum Hills. Look at how cute this with the super bright pinks and tons of flowers with butterflies, love it!

The last collection I am posting from Kaisercraft is called Chanteuse! Look the the fabulous color palette, and it reminded of classic photos ... which I have a ton of! Check out this collection!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some things I am excited about! What new releases are you excited about? Post it in the comment section for all of us to see!


  1. I love them all. I have a feeling I'm going to be broke in the near future. You have done some fabulous pages in the past with GCD, I have looked on line and in stores and never find it. Any hints?

  2. I'm so in love with the new lines by MME, can't wait to get my hands on those papers!

  3. I am especially waiting for the Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey sneaks. I love all of the ones you shared and I can't wait to see your projects on HSN!
