I just returned home from the summer CHA convention and I'm extremely excited to let you in on a few updates. We are going to have some awesome new releases coming over the next few months and even some new custom dies on the way. I have to admit, although I LOVE to see all the new releases sometimes I'm not inspired right away when I first arrive at the show. Not this time!! I was wanting to purchase EVERYTHING!! Do I really need to sleep?? I would just LOVE to design 24/7!! But, I had to narrow things down and I believe I ordered a variety of collections from different manufacturers. I know I can be a creature of habit sometimes! So, do want to know whats coming???
First, I have to show you what I have been secretly working on. I was so lucky to be asked to design a mini album with this collection for Simple Stories for the CHA show. I knew my package was going to arrive in the mail and when it came I literally ripped the box open immediately! I couldn't wait to get to all the goodies inside. Want to know what it was?? A DISNEY collection!!!!!!!!! Yes, so many of you have been wanting a Disney themed album for sooooooo long!! Well, we can't call it DISNEY, because Walt might not be too happy with us, so the collection is called, "SAY CHEESE." This collection screams Disney without having anything to do with Disney, Mickey, or Minnie. I know I always say, "this one is my favorite!" but this one really is a new favorite. From the CHA buzz I was told this is one of the top new releases and I can definitely see why. It's cute, but has just a hint of that nostalgic or vintage feel. And guess what....I'm am one of the first ones to get my hands on this collection for a September release. Yep! SEPTEMBER!! I love this collection soooooooo much I am planning a mini album, a smashbook for all you smashbook lovers, and a two, 2 page layout kit. So yes, with product on the way, there will be very little sleep in August and all my worker bees will hopefully be able to put in some overtime. This is the album I created for the CHA show and the kit I will be bringing to all of you will be very similar. I have a few new dies arriving any day that I want to incorporate.
So, I would love to hear what you think? Are you excited for September?
Looking ahead, this year I have planned a December Daily album set to be released November. It will be completely designed to make your holidays stress free and easy. All you will have to worry about is assembling your album and taking photos. So easy!!
In June, I polled you to see if anyone would like to see a cruise themed album. I had wonderful feedback and yes, this album is planned to happen. But, with all the holiday releases, it may just get bumped a bit and I also just received the okay for a front cover I'm excited about. So, I want to design a new custom die and will have to wait to receive it. But hang on, it's still coming!!!
So, I will leave you with some of the collections coming soon....Say Cheese from Simple Stories, Thrilling from Authentique, Family Traditions from Websters Pages (love this collection), Christmas Countdown from Bella Blvd., Tis' the Season and Reflections Fall from Echo Park, Rough & Tumble from Carta Bella, and All Bundled Up from Crate Paper. There might be more too!!
