Fabulous Finds Friday

Hi there! Practical Scrapper Ann here with this week's installment of Friday Fabulous Finds. With a new year, comes a new edition of CHA. Yes, the winter CHA is just 3 weeks away and some manufacturers are already teasing us with sneak peeks, so today's finds are all about those sneak peeks. Which of these items can you picture yourself using in the near future?

1. Heidi Sonboul designed this bright floral and graphics 12 x 12 pad (also in 8 x8) for GCD Studios. The chevron trend that was big in 2011 is remaining here in early 2012, judging by this line. Do you like the large vintagey drawings? It appears GCD will also have a 2nd line to launch at CHA, too.

2. Prima has sneaked us peeks of 2 lines so far, Nature Garden andSongbird Collection, which both seem to feature muted colour palettes. What do you think of the accessories, particularly the Shabby Wooden Tickets and Flags, and the Artists Tiles, and Genie Stones?

3. Teresa Collins is partnering with Xyron to launch this sticker maker in pink and houndstooth. Pretty and fashionable, isn't it?

4. For all you grunge fans, Tim Holtz has a new book to launch, A Compendium of Curiosities 2, filled with ideas, tips and techniques a la Tim. Sounds like if you've ever wondered how they did that, this will be a good resource.

5. Pink Paislee is showing off Spring Jubilee . Flowers, birds, butterflies. Breathe in spring as winter really gets serious!

6. Webster's Pages has been teasing with sneak peeks of Sunday Picnic in a classic and clean and simple format. 

7. If western is your fave theme, you'll love Sasparilla from October Afternoon - playful, boyish, travel, masculine - a pretty flexible collection!

8. From a newer company, Ruby Rock-it, is this sneak peek of Vintedge andNostalgia. This company is based in Australia with a distribution warehouse in Chicago. They are just ramping up for North America with a recent DT call and greater public awareness.

9. Count on Graphic 45 for something completely different. Their travel line,Tropical Travelogue has me wishing there was a warm vaycay destination in my 2012 plans. 

I'm sure there will be lots more reveals from manufacturers in the next few weeks. Which lines are must haves for you?

I like the GCD studio release especially the border strips. and the Pink Paislee and some of the Webster pages are very pretty.
The Prima release is not for me although it is pretty.

I may need a little Sasparilla added to my stash!
