CHA Preview Review

Hello everyone! I'm here today to review some of the CHA previews that are available right now. There's been lots of buzz this week about all the fun new releases headed our way so I thought I'd take a moment to share some of my favs. I want to warn you this is kind of a LONG post...but it's worth the read!!

Spellbinders. Well, what else needs to be said?! I LOVE my Spellbinders and am always eager to see what they have in store for us. If you missed it, they did a week long blog frenzy where they revealed some of their new dies and collections. You can see their releases HERE on their blog. I will share ONE pic with you of my #1 favorite of their new release...

Isn't it beautiful??? Check out Becca Feeken's blog and see what she did with this set!!! It will blow you away! Be sure you scroll all the way down so you see everything she created!!!

Next on my list is the Teresa Collin's Stamp Maker machine. This thing is waaaaay cool and there's tons of hype surrounding this machine. Take a peek...

Uh huh, yeah. Is anyone else as excited about this as I am???? I will be at CHA and demoing this is TOP on my list!! Imagine the limitless possibilities!!! You can read more about this machine and watch some videos from Teresa HERE on her blog.

This next thing I am going to show you is something my friend, Eva, found. This is so fun...check it out...

Okay, these make me happy!! I was actually going to ask hubs for a Janome Sew Mini sewing machine for my birthday but I think I'll just get these instead!! Yes, I will have to hand stitch so it will take more time BUT think of the room I'll save on storage AND these things are waaaaay more portable!!! Yep, gotta have them.

Tim Holtz. Ah, Tim has teamed up with Sizzix and if you ask me, the pair make one amazing team. I am LOVIN' Tim's Alterations. I have some from the first release and really enjoy using them. Here's a few peeks I saw on Tim's blog. Again, these are my favs...

There's a ton more and you can see his sneak peeks on his blog HERE.

So there are a few of my favs so far. You can see other fun sneak peeks HERE on The Scrap Review blog. And leave me a comment with a link to your favorite releases so far!!! I'd love to see them!

I'm leaving on Sunday for Chicago for the WHOLE week!!! I'm so excited!! I will be attending CHA with Scrap-Mart then off to the Super Show to work in our booth. If you are coming to the Super Show I hope you stop by!! I love meeting my crafty friends! Follow me on Facebook (Katie Piotrowski) for fun CHA updates straight from the show floor! Or, catch my Tweets on Twitter (ScrapMartKatie).

Thanks so much for joining me for my CHA Preview Review. I'm taking Saturday and Sunday off to pack and spend time with my family before I travel. I will be blogging from CHA when I can but most of my updates you can find on the Scrap-Mart blog, Facebook or Twitter.

For the record...I'm currently GREEN with envy that you got to see these goodies first hand! :) I think I *need* those piercers too! :)
