Have you seen this?

I guess those readers who are scrapbookers know that CHA Summer is right around the corner. Unfortunately, I won't be attending the show this year. Fortunately, I will be going to Disney I think I can pass up Chicago this year...LOL! Anyway, as the show approaches, we see all of the Scrapbook product manufacturers hype up their new releases on the web (hence, my Tinkering Ink goodness.) I have been blog hopping, and I ran into some goodies that I have to mention here. I predict that both of these items will be a HUGE hit at CHA!

1. Prima: Retail Friendly Hybrid-What a fabulous concept to help merge the gap between paper and digital scrapbooking where both parties are in a win/win situation. Just look at their chipboard tags that coordinate with the digital images on the disc! Pure Genius. Check them out on the Prima blog.

2. Creative Imaginations: Karen Russell's Pre-printed 12x12 page protectors WITH pockets-Page protectors have been around from the beginning of time (ok, so maybe I exaggerate a bit, but you get the idea), but these page protectors are the SH*T! Protectors with gorgeous designs already printed on them and little pockets for your goodies, whether they be photos, paper, embellies, or what! They are the last 2 items in the picture below, BTW. I can't wait to see what the designers do with these, and I can't wait to get me some myself! have no idea! If I have wait too long, I might go insane! Anyway, you can check out more of Karen's beautifulreleases on her blog, here.
3. And last, but certainly NOT least, you have to check out the new Beadles at the Tinkering Ink blog! What a fun product with so many possibilities....for scrapbooking and lots of other crafts! These are definitely going to be a hit at CHA! Make sure to stop by the Tinkering Ink booth to get your fun Make & Take!

So, that's my first review of CHA goodies. I will be sure to let you guys know about anything else that I believe to be a "MUST SEE." I am sure there will be more! Peace!


  1. ohh look at all the fun stuff Denine :) I will see if I can make you a necklace while I am in the booth.

  2. Oooh, love your review Denine! I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new CHA goodies! I won't be going to CHA either, but I also won't be going to Disney, so i'm jealous, lol! Have a great trip!!

  3. I squealed with delight when I saw the beadles. I have a feeling our make-and-take is going to be VERY popular at the show!! Summer and I will have to give you a full report! You will be very missed!!

  4. Oh my goodness - I think I'm in love with those Beadles! Not only will I love playing with them, they would also make a great activity for kids at my museum - fun stuff, Denine!
