I have to admit part of the reason is because there hasn't been as much that has grabbed my attention so far. :-O
In fact, I have been a little disappointed overall.
But then I saw *this post by Tammy*.
It helped me realize that even though I might now necessarily like an entire collection or even part of it, there are quite a few bits and pieces that have caught my eye.
And there are actually several companies that do have my attention because they are standing out among the other manufacturers!
Here are some of my favorites in no particular order.
1. Crate Paper
for me they are the one of the companies that I like parts of all their lines. So bonus points for Crate Paper this CHA!
Styleboard by Maggie Holmes has a lot of great pieces to it. Several people have mentioned that it all looks too much like her previous lines, but I am ok with that. I like continuity between lines. And while I may not like all of the papers, I love that one in the center!
The Oh, Darling line is pretty cute to me and I like a lot of pieces from this one.
And the Boys Rule line is pretty cool. A very retro, vintage 80's vibe. Love the colors, and they had me at mix tapes!
2. Glitz (77)
3. Lilybee (Everyday)
I love this ampersand paper. I love the colors! So I may just have to look into buying a few pieces from the Everyday line this time around.
I love so much about this whole line. Quite a few of the papers, the journal cards, label stickers, the chipboard stickers and maybe stamp set.
There are two other lines being released as well. Not too crazy about Pen Pals. Too red, white and blue for me. And while I love the colors in Hello, Sunshine, I am a little tired of the whole "you are my sunshine theme." I have way to much product with that sentiment.
But I seriously like these stickers...
and may have to get them.
I am a sucker for navy right now. I love navy! And I love the homey feel to this line. It reminds me of my great aunt whom I loved dearly. And I can see my self using this line for lots of older photos :)
They have three new lines out. And all three of them have pretty blues including the navy I am liking right now!
One of the things I love about Fancy Pants is their alphabet sticker sheets! This one from the As You Wish line has great colors (navy) and word stickers! Plus I know I am going to have to get these great cards...
My favorite...the "You Are my True North". Love it!
Next up is Nautical
We took a trip to Mexico last year which involved lots of beach and boat time. This line is perfect for scrapping those photos!
And the third line is Be Different.
These label stickers are some of my favorite around! I love the colors, the sentiments and the fonts.
And seriously did I mention the colors? Evan's favorite color is orange, so I have a love of orange and navy together. Perfect!
Fancy Pants is another hit to me!
Oh how I do love their embellishments. Especially the wood veneer. And for CHA, I think their Essentials line is brilliant.
Chipboard shapes in colors including gold and woodgrain...
Tons of enamel dots also including wood grain and gold...
tiny type alphabets...
and of course wood veneer.
And let's just say that Chic Tags is a new favorite of mine ever since I used their School House line for Paper Issues. I really like this travel line. So happy they have added papers to their product lines
And I love these stickers...
from the Cloud 9 line. Chic Tags definitely has my attention!
MME has quite a bit I am liking this time around!
So MME gets high points from me in an otherwise not so fabulous season of CHA releases.
So there you have it!
My top picks for CHA this season.
I have seen a few lists from other bloggers already.
But would love to know what are your favorites?
