Oh CHA Summer - What fun and fabulous new colors! I just want to wrap myself in the new curry yellow and gorgeous purples that are out. I can't decide on one fav product so here are a couple. I'll keep it somewhat short. Prima - Sultan Centers, Paradise City and Indeed Papers. Fancy Pants Designs Little Sprout Line. Precious. So many ideas, so little time. Have a fabulous weekend! Smooches, Amy McCollum

Where to begin , Loving the new Websters line, especially the Postcards from Paris, but all of it is so girly, vintage, and oh so delicious. Lily Bee's tulle flowers are a must, and for my little tootsie I'm loving the Fancy Pants, Little sprout line. As always anything Heidi Swapp, Teresa Collins or Cosmo Cricket or anything that sparkles and shines is a must have, one can never have enough BLING !!!!



I am new to your site - but have been following for awhile - I love all of your items and kits - tried the last time to get one - was a little late!!

I love Junebug from Basic Grey - the doggy and quilt pages are great - they have fabulous colors.

I really love Minds Eye Halloween - Boo to You and Spidersweb - this is my favorite holiday.

Thanks for sharing your Paris Trip - Celeste

Oh man, I'm supposed to just pick one fave? Are you kidding me!?! It has to be the letterman font American Crafts thickers. I can't wait for those!!!

Laura, I will start first by saying I was sadly disappointed with alot of the lines this summer. Way too pink and but not really girly-girly. I don't object to some pink on the boys pages, after all I use flowers and pretty ribbon.
But I LOVE Junebug and went and bought the whole collection. and I love MME and Creative Imaginations. So there is plenty out there to love!
I am thinking I am in line for the school kit but we are in a flux over placement and increased class size. I know they called him the terminator for some reason. No laughter please.

LOVE the sneaks Laura!!! I think my fave thing from CHA is the Gypsy from Cricut. I doubt I'll ever have one, but I love the idea of it and think it's a great, innovative product!!!


Hi Laura,
I always love the newest Basic Grey and the Lemonade line with those pretty "doilies" is pretty special but Websters new lines are very special, Letters from Paris is a beauty with all those hot air balloons but I am nuts over the pink cabbage roses on the "Beauty?" line. I found them at the wonderful Paper Tales store you sent me to. It can not be found anywhere here on the east coast. Please say hi to Michelle and Julie for me tomorrow. They are wonderful! Have fun, I wish I were there. :)

the Webster pages are definitely up there on my favorite list ........... some of them look too pretty to even use!
glad u r back Laura!

Tami F.

Oh, it has to be all the new lines from Pink Paislee especially the Amber Road!! I can' wait to get ahold of these :D

Love that little dress form!!


Oohh, im seriously drooling over the sneak peeks of ur upcoming kits! Hopefully i'll be quick enough to snag one :)
I have to say that my new favs from CHA are the new cosmo cricket and graphic 45 papers, and def. Tim Holtz's new rock candy crackle and stickles!

First, the important stuff - Is the kit order time 7pm pst? Am I going to be forced to stay up that late EST to ensure I get one of these???? My 14 yo dd just got back from France (I'm so impressed with the pics she thought to take) and this kit preview is so very perfect for her trip. Then you top it off with that adorable dress form. Just after she got back we went to a flea market, she saw a large one, begged for it, didn't get it. At $200 that wasn't happening obviously. So, clearly I am anxiously hoping to be one of the lucky 24 to buy a kit.

New CHA stuff - I can't wait for Tim Holtz's rock candy items. I also like the lemonade line from Basic Grey.

Glad to have you back and enjoyed reading about and seeing your vacation. Looked wonderful!
I loved lots of the new CHA stuff but particularly...MME Halloween and Christmas.

Teri Hansen

I'm looking forward to Eerie by Basic Grey. I was just at Paper Tales yesterday. Love that store! Have fun with your class!

Shannon Cummins

I love it all... How can I choose just one... I love all of the Halloween lines, and Basic Grey is alway's a winner....

shemaine smith

Wow what a kit Laura!!! I am crazy for the camelot roses from Prima and the Pink Paislee Halloween line!! I'm also wanting to get their Christmas line too since it's vintage looking...

Niki Willaert

Oh Laura! You can bet I will be attached to my computer on reveal night to ensure I get this kit!!! I think I am in love!! As far as my must have CHA goodies, I am lovin' the Basic Grey lines and the new gorgeous Webster's Pages papers! So much yummy goodness to be bought and crafted with!

Grace M

My faves are the new mini chipboard from Maya Road!

karin c

My pick from CHA summer was all the new paper from Pink Paislee...it worked for me..

But I will say from projects posted all over the net, your Christmas banner with Clear Scraps was the best...


I love Halloween so I'm loving the Basic
Grey halloween line plus all of their other lines. I'm intrigued by the Cricut Gypsy... just not sure if I'm going to go there:)


Hi I'm from Australia so have to wait months for the latest products to get here. But I love Basic Grey so I'm sure the new release will be great & I love reading your "life" - your work is wonderful.


The new Cosmo Cricket is simply devine!!! But I love so much of the new stuff!!!!


Ohhhh your sneaks always leaves me wanting more! Hmm fav lines eh? My Little Shoe Box, Cosmo & Sassafras are all 'killers'! For My Little Sho Box I practically bought the whole of all lines when they came out at my LSS! But I guess my fav will be Websters Pages! Their papers are always so versatile and I save all scraps cos I know there will be somewhere that I could use that little frog etc :P BAD paper hoarder :D

Elizabeth Williams

You keep promising! I'm kidding I know how busy you are but I cannot wait to see your ETSy shop. As for CHA, you've turned me into a Webster's Pages junkies and they had some gorgeous new stuff.But I guess I'm really just a simple girl at heart-my very favoritest new thing was Maya Road's gingham ribbon and flowers. I've been checking their web site every day to see if they have them available for sale yet.

Valerie Bishop

Fabulous sneaks!! That dress form is too cute!! I love all the new PRima stuff - it's just gorgeous!

Kathleen Kraft

hey Laura..CHA Summer was good. My very fav was the Pink Paislee line especially the Twilight and the Christmas lines..soo very cool and a little vintagey. I love the new Maya Road scalloped chipboard albums as well and the new little birdcage chipboad minis...a good show!

Can't wait to see your stuff!
