This last weekend I got the opportunity to attend the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) show in Anaheim, CA. This is the biggest crafting show of the year and it's where we get a preview of all the new products coming out (in the next 6 months). We also get lots of info about the hottest products of the year, what's trending, and then from all that, we (CraftDirect) decide what new products we're bringing in.

We had so much fun this year and normally I don't take pictures, but this year I took lots. It was a good time to bring the camera because I met a lot of my favorite designers and crafters. Pictured to the right in the middle is Becky Higgins (the designer and mastermind behind Project Life). She talked to Katlyn and me about all her exciting new product lines for 2016.


Core Kits

Here are two of the new Core kits, the first is the Wander Edition, which will help you to capture the fun of all your travels and adventures. It's filled with bright and fun cards that encourage you to live in the moment and enjoy everything around you.

cardsThe second is Wonderful Edition and it offers cards with positive quotes, that is lighthearted and inspiring. With hand-drawn lettering, this collection will give your scrapbook that personalized look without the extra work. We are bringing in a few additional Core kits: Currently Edition, Explore Edition, and the Everyday Edition.  380628_PL_ThisandThat_ValueKit_PKG

Value Kits

Finally, we have New Value Kits. These card kits are the perfect way to add a little variety to your scrapbook. Above are pictured the two newest ones that have been released. With them being so popular, they have a few more coming out: Lucky Charm, Note to Self, Good Times, Be Fearless, Screen Printed Transparencies, High Five Edition (they are foiled & Die-Cut) and my personal favorite the Inspire Edition (this set has stitching on the cards - no sewing machine required)! Most of these sets are scheduled to be released in March of 2016. You will love our selection of Project Life kits.

Now, mind you this was only one of the many new products that we have coming in. I have lots more to tell you about. Next will be NEW products from Sizzix.

Happy creating!
