There's bound to be a lot of CHA-related talk here on the blog and over on our Facebook page these next few weeks, so for those of you who may be new to scrapbooking or papercrafting in general, I thought I'd take a moment to explain.
CHA stands for the Craft + Hobby Association. Basically, it's an organization that a lot of crafting manufacturers and retailers belong to. They hold two big tradeshows every year--one in the Winter (Jan/Feb) and one in the Summer (July), and this is where a lot of our vendors release the majority of their new product lines. The nice thing about going to the different tradeshows is that we retailers get to see the product in person, drool all over it and then order it in for you to enjoy (sans drool, of course)!
So over the course of the next few weeks, we'll be doing a mix of blog posts and Facebook updates to fill you in on what you can expect to see hit the market this Fall. As we go along, we'll make note of which of those lines you'll find in Scrapbook Studio stores as best we can so you can plan ahead! As always, we appreciate your feedback on these new lines as we do our best to cater to your needs whenever and wherever possible! So if you see something you really, really like or even something that's not exactly your favorite--let us know!
All that being said, let's get on to our first sneak peek of the season!

Imaginisce has two collections up their sleeves this year, both of them shipping next month!
The first, "Geek is Chic" is a fun school line that scores an "Easy A" in my book. There are some really fun stamps and coordinating stickers in this line and the different papers & elements can be catered to any age!
How cute is this mini album?
No matter the season, there always seems to be school photos that need scrapped and plenty of "dear old golden rule" memories to be documented! They'll be back in school before we know it!
The second line is called "Santa's Little Helper" and it's just a collection of whimsical, Christmas-y adorableness! And the cute little reindeer you see there on the right side of this gift bag project pictured is actually available as a die-cut AND a stamp so you can literally have all kinds of holiday fun with Santa's little "helper"! Besides, it's never too soon to get a jump-start on your holiday crafts and card-making! Can you believe there are only 178 shopping days left until Christmas?!
It's madness, I tell you... MADNESS!
Oh, but it's fun. Lots and lots of FUN...!!
