Week #1 of sneaks…

So here’s a cool think about January: most of my favorite scrapbook companies come out with new goodies to be released at CHA, and they start peeking them once the new year has arrived. FUN. What I like about peeks is the anticipation – what will the whole line look like? Will ___ be my favorite in person? What else will I love?

I can’t say for sure what I love the best until I see it all in person, but I can share my favorite peeks from this week:

YES! Tim Holtz is at it again – and I couldn’t be happier. I especially need the sapphire, victorian velvet, spun sugar, tumbled glass, wild honey… ok I want them all. Can’t wait to see in person.

Hmmm. That’s Lily Bee’s sneak peek so far and I’m intrigued. Love the use of aqua. I’ve been told from a source or two that has seen this stuff that it’s “so May”. I’ll be checking them out closely.

Speaking of things that are so me – the pairing of Elizabeth Kartchner & American Crafts for a lovely new line (glitter filled!!!) has me very happy.

Pink Paislee made me crazy this morning with titles of their collections. Just the artwork screams “this is going to be stuff May LOVES”

I have never heard of Shabby Green Door (at least I don’t think so) but I am loving their new peek.

Studio Calico’s second collection looks like a lot of fun. I hope they have more of those fabric strip stickers… love those.

I’ve mentioned before that Tattered Angels is going up in ranking here in my studio. When I saw this new product announcement it went up a few more notches. I mean… wow. Not just new colors of glimmer mist but a whole new paint-like product? YEAH!

Last but not least – I must mention the announcement that Margie Romney-Aslett is creating a new (vintage inspired & fabulous) line for Advantus. SO excited.

I have to stop now. My goodness there are just so many companies I could mention! I will give you a tip though – if you want to check out all the peeks as they are revealed Nancy Nally came up with a fantastic page on her site. It helped me find a few of these! So what are your favorites? What are you anticipating? I look forward to seeing all the new lovelies in all their glory in just 2 more weeks…

  1. I’m going to try to check these all out before going to CHA but I find myself lingering and drooling and do not think I’ll ever make it through the list. 7 Gypsies is divine especailly the Venice papers and the Marais and Venezia stationery lines, but I love most all of it!

  2. So far I’m most excited about the new Distress Ink palette and can’t wait to see Tim Holtz’s new stamps. I like the colours of the new Studio Calico line moreso than the last one. Lots of the peeks I’ve seen are very feminine and delicate and vintage-inspired; I’m hoping for some bolder colours and more boyish looks yet, as that’s mostly what I scrap. The big exception to that is Prima – one of my faves – and I can’t wait to see what Cosmo Cricket has in store.
