cha winter 2016 sneak peeks

Each winter designers, retailers, and manufacturers converge upon sunny Southern California for the largest paper craft (and other crafts) trade show in the industry. Tomorrow the show floor will open, and the excitement begins as attendees wander from booth to booth to see the latest and greatest offerings from manufacturers. Today I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite sneak peeks of winter 2016 new releases!


We R Memory Keepers


It's no secret that I'm slightly biased toward the fabulous brands from the American Crafts family. Long before they acquired We R Memory Keepers I was a fan of everything AC, and I'm so grateful to be part of such an amazing company. I do have to say that We R seriously knocked it out of the park this year. I think I say that every year, but holy smokes friends...16...yep, I'm serious, 16 amazing new releases! Check it.

Two gorgeous new paper collections, Organization Gallery, Ruler Studio Alphabet Punch Board, Staple Board, Goodie Bag Guide, Laser Square, and I could keep going, but I'll let you enjoy the surprise. For more details about We R Memory Keepers winter 2016 new releases, check out their blog announcement HERE. Love!!


Jillibean Soup


I had the pleasure of designing for Jillibean Soup years ago, and I've always been a fan. I love the mixed media offerings they've come up with over past few years, and this year they did not disappoint. Totally crushing on the wood, galvanized metal, and string art. Awesome!







You can catch all of their new releases and some project inspiration on their blog, Bean Talk.

Pinkfresh Studio


Pinkfresh studio has some lovely new releases this year, my favorite of which is Life Noted. I love the colors, the abundance of white, and the clean graphic patterns. Almost a throwback to Scenic Route. Sigh...




You can see more of their new releases and tons more inspiration on their blog HERE.

Echo Park Paper


Echo Park has lots of awesome new releases, but my favorite is a new Jack/Jill style collection called Petticoats and Pinstripes. So cute!

Simple Stories


Along with the super popular Carpe Diem line, Simple Stories also has some lovely new paper collections this year. My fav is Life In Color. Don't you just love the rich color palette and those darling wood veneers?

Pink Paislee


I'm so thrilled about this debut paper collection from the lovely and super talented Paige Evans. It's totally her and absolutely beautiful! And her partnership with Pink Paislee is a match made in heaven.

Find more photos and details about Fancy Free on the Pink Paislee blog HERE.

Crate Paper


I just love Maggie Holmes' style, and her new Bloom collection for Crate Paper is totally genius. I mean seriously...fringe heart accents? Doesn't get much better than that.




You really need to check out all the goodies in this amazing collection. Total home run! Visit Crate Paper's blog HERE to see it.

So, what new releases are you excited about? Do you have a favorite that you've seen so far?
