Karin and I arrived back in Springfield last night after three long but fun days at the CHA summer show in Chicago. One of the neatest things was the chance to talk to Ali Edwards, who had nice things to say about MY Ali! (The two had met a few months ago at the Scrapbooker of the Year ceremonies in Las Vegas.)

We're tired, but excited about all the new and innovative things we will be bringing to Springfield as quickly as possible. I'll post photos later this evening when I have a chance to get in the office for a while!

Some of the new items will be arriving as early as next week, while others will arrive in the fall months. As much as I would like it, we can't get it all at once!

Following is a list of things that should be here fairly quickly (July and August).
-- Colorbok: a huge assortment of 8x8 and 12x12 albums;
-- Black Market Paper Society: six collections of stunning papers and die-cuts;
-- Reminisce: school papers, cardstock stickers, and three-dimensional stickers;
-- Bazzill: new die-cut border sets in six colors, new stitching templates, and rolls of 3" wide tulle (a great new embellishment for cards or for pages);
-- Scrappin' Sports: glitter papers for several girls' sports, school papers and stickers;
-- Creative Imaginations: several general school papers and matching embellishments;
-- KI Memories: a cute school group with ribbons and other matching goodies;
-- Colorbok: 12x12 sets of 26 sheets of alphabet chipboard (including a HUGE letter and about 10 more of each letter per sheet);
-- My Mind's Eye: Everything! Laundry Line, Just Dreamy, Halloween and Christmas collections, plus glitter chipboard letters, individual clear stamps, matching chalk inks, and all the myriad of matching embellishments and die-cuts they are famous for;
-- Little Yellow Bicycle: an absolutely fabulous Halloween collection;
-- Scenic Route: new collections (I've forgotten the names);
-- Rusty Pickle: a Halloween collection and several great 12x12 chipboard sets.

Inbetween all the above, there will be general papers from some new finds (Pink Paislee, GCD Studios, Piggy Tales, Kaiser, and others) and some old favorites (BasicGrey, Crate Paper, Anna Griffin, K & Company, and more). And don't even get me started about what will get here in September and October!
