May’s picks {so far} from Summer 2010 CHA peeks

Christmas in July is a reality in the on-line scrapbooking community, as it’s the month of the Summer CHA show where companies reveal all kinds of good things to come for the second half of the year. While I won’t be attending this show, I also have no intentions of falling behind or missing out. I have been checking Scrapbook Update’s peek page in addition to the blogs and Facebook pages I already follow in the industry.

Today I’d like to share a few of my top picks based on the product images I’ve seen so far on-line. With the show still a week away and many things not yet revealed this is the tip of the iceberg I’m sure – but it’s sure a fun thing to uncover, so I wanted to share.

In no order at all, here are products I’ve seen that I can’t wait to get my hands on:

Pink Paislee has done it again. I am most anxious to see their collaboration with House of 3, but their other lines are awesome too. This “old school” line makes me so very happy – especially the plaids and that die cut “members only” paper.

Despite the cost and (of course) availability issues, I still love Prima products. These pink flowers make me so very happy. I don’t just want them – I need them!

I’m THRILLED to see Cosmo Cricket bringing some new items back into the wild west with the line “Wanted”.

I loved the last batch of Lily Bee chipboard elements – and I really like the new offerings too. Can’t wait!

This paper from Jillibean Soup has me super excited! I just love the filmstrip look and see so much potential for the vibrant fall colors.

American Crafts does cute so very well, and it looks like their Love line is going to be no exception.

Continuing as a top pick – Elementary from Studio Calico is a line I want in full. Specifically, I want about 10 sheets of this paper. It’s die cut and just so cute.

I literally squealed when I saw that Tim Holtz is making more tissue tape (a favorite of mine!) and in holiday themes too. Thanks Tim!

Jenni Bowlin is once again knocking my socks off – from stickers to vellum butterflies to new chipboard buttons.

Glitz Design, a company that has worked it’s way up to favorite status for me will firmly stay that way. I love the new stuff – especially this Scarlett line.

My Minds Eye goes hot and cold for me – but this new offering is smoking hot. I adore Lost & Found, and I can’t wait to play!

Looking for a super cute line for those little girls in your life? This is it. I can’t help but smile at this playful collection from My Little Shoebox.

I have a feeling that Webster’s Pages is going to offer up some beautiful things based on what I’ve seen so far on their facebook page. I hope this tinsel trim is the tip of the iceberg!

I will continue my hunt for the latest & greatest as I prepare new articles, reviews, and features to share here. What great things have you located? Is there something you’re hoping for or looking forward to? Please feel free to share – and for links to all of these and many more sneak peeks click this link.

    I think the new Halloween line from Graphic 45, Halloween in Wonderland, is amazing. Book buffs who recall the distinctive illustrations from Alice in Wonderland will fall in love with the same familiar characters, updated for Halloween. In addition to the sheets I’d like to use for cards or layouts, I might just buy a sheet or two to hang as decoration.

    Very nice picks. I am loving the Maya mists, especially since my favorite color seafoam green is a choice. Prima’s Fairy Flora is lovely. I really need to get a closer look at Webster’s Pages, looks like interesting stuff.

    I’m very excited about the new additions to CC’s Wanted line, and those oh-so-cute JB chipboard buttons. I must be in a very nostalgic frame of mind!
