Back by popular demand, we’d love to share with you a video tour of some things that we saw this year at the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show this year in Anaheim.  What do you see that you love? Please share in our comment section of this blog post!


  1. I’m super excited for the new Some Odd Girl stamps, new Lawn Fawn stamps and polka-dot papers, Fancy Pants papers and well .. everything!!! There were so many gorgeous and exciting new products. I actually had to pause the video several times to look closely at all the new goodies.

    Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. wow – thanks, nicely done.
    I am most excited about the pop it ups.
    There is lots of beautiful new papers, love then new gelatos colors, the new mini distress ink applicators, new stencils, the new dies …. all lovely and exciting!

  3. Thank you for yet another wonderful tour in this magical world of papercrafting. Looking forward to seeing what’s new in SSS in the coming weeks.

  4. There were some awesome releases this time. I am especially looking forward to the new Prima stuff, new Tim Holtz products, SOG, Webster’s pages, and….the list goes on! If only I had unlimited funds!

  5. Thanks for the great video. My favourites for this cha release are the new Dina Wakely line with Ranger specifically the paints, scribble bird stamp and both of her bird stencils/masks, so excited about these. My other favourite is a new company called Hazel & Ruby so hoping you stock some of there line, love love there 12′ tissue rolls they have the most amazing patterns perfect for mixed media and art journaling and they have the cutest sequins that come in test tubs so cool for storage and so want there stencil masks they would be perfect for everything from home décor to mixed media could so see myself using this over and over again! Fingers crossed all of these come to SSS, cha is such an exciting time of year I’ve spent the last week glued to youtube :)
    PS also loved lawn fawn… but I always love lawn fawn

  6. This video was so much fun! I had to pause 3 times to check out that adorable “Some Odd Girl” stamp set with the little chihuahua, fox and kitty! LOVE that one! Also love the Freckled Fawn dew drop enamel stickers and the IO Cover a Card stamps. Lastly, those Alison Kraft clips are over the moon fun! Thanks for the trip to Cha :)

  7. I have watched a lot of footage of CHA but yours is the most comprehensive. There wee so many companies but what caught my eye was Lala Land and the Dreamweaver Stencils. I use your company almost exclusively and I hope you will stock these items. This is not about CHA but whenever Jennifer McGuire features one of the SSS dies it seems that even though I watch the video the day it comes out when I go to order it is already out of stock. Specifically the die with all of the hearts that looks like an outline die.

  8. Hi the video is great it took me so long to watch,because I was pausing all the time.Everything is just super and a must have for my stash thanx for the show,Mags.

  9. I love so much, but this is what’s standing out…
    The card with the kitty that shows the backside as well. So cute! I hope there is a poppy!
    PenPals collection
    Mini blenders by TH
    Essentials and Wanderlust by SC
    Tons of stamps and dies.
    MR charms.
    And everything Websters!

  10. Color me overwhelmed! Is it too broad to say I love it all? I particularly like the Kelly Purkey paperline, anything Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn and all the yummy new stencils from everyone!

  11. Oh my — I love it ALL! My pocket book is getting lighter just watching all the great things coming out. But my favorites are paper, stamps, and dies. Of all the brands!

  12. Wowzers! So many fabulous products… Loved the Allison Kreft lines for Webster’s Pages; the Avery Elle stamps; Some Odd Girl clear stamps; and the Glitz Designs paper lines!!

  13. It was just like being there without all the walking. Love the Lawn Fawn and the small Tim Holtz inks and sponges. So many great new stamps and papers. Oh my, better start saving my pennies.Thanks so much for the tour.

  14. At first, I thought I could just remember the things I liked…then I started pausing and writing down the place in the video so I could see it again. Here are my favorites:
    1) that Imaginisce elephant and baby elephant clear stamp at 10:40. (Maybe because my daughter is expecting and using an elephant theme in the nursery…but I am going to HAVE TO HAVE THAT STAMP!)
    2) Tim Holtz ice cream cone blueprint….all his stuff is great…I think the mini blenders will be very useful.
    3) The Happy Birthday at 2:33. Is it Zig? Is it a stamp? I LOVE IT
    4) The kitty peeking through the hole and you can see the back of the kitty inside “you’re purrfect” at 11:23.
    5) Taylored Expressions stamp “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul. E. Dickinson” at 19:11
    6) Dreamweaver embossing paste.
    7) Stampendous stamp “My God supply all your needs…. Phil 4:19” stamp near the end

    Also- I just love enamel dots when people use them in stamp tutorials but I can NEVER find them in stores.

  15. I love so many things! You will soon find out my favourites when I start making my January orders and pre orders, ha, ha!

  16. After seeing the new Lawn Fawn, I think they are becoming my favourite. Thanks for the video. It is well done. Gail

  17. I am really interested in some of the new Project Life items – especially the new 6×8 albums. Do you know when they will be available?

  18. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful new products–I was oooing and aahing over the great stamps, dies and great colorful papers. Magnifique! My favorite were the great quote stamps.

  19. I am loving the new My Minds Eye, Hero Arts and Simple Stories! The new Kaisercraft, Avery Elle and Doodlebug also caught my eye.

  20. Wowsers! How could you choose from all those goodies! Can’t wait til it’s all for sale–my poor bank account! But my happy craft room!

  21. I saw some amazing die cuts, don’t remember who they belonged to. Also a big fan of Kelly Purkey’s line and Amy Tangerine’s.

  22. Thank you for the fantastic tour! So many goodies it’s hard to choose my favorite but I know my stamping room will have some additions soon.
    Your music was enjoyable too and I would love to know the artist that performed the song featuring a ukulele. The cheerful melody would be great background for stamping!

  23. Good job in making this CHA compilation. Makes me feel I was at CHA, too, although I really want to be at CHA someday! There are a lot of things to look forward to. But I’ll say that I can’t wait to see what Wink of Luna looks like. I can’t even get over the Wink of Stella, yet! Anyway, I will look forward to new CHA products on your website.

  24. There is so much on the market today, it’s so hard to pick and choose. I’m a complete die-0-holic. LOL I need some Art Impression girlfriend stamps. =D

  25. Wink of Luna – excited to see that ! New Dylusions colors, mini distress inkpads, so much gorgeous paper I don’t know where to start. Thanks for showing us such a beautiful world!

  26. So many great stamps and dies. Many companies/designers that I’ve never heard of that I will now be checking out. Loved the kitty card, inside and out. Fab new colors and papers and I love all of the colored “dots” that are available. Like lots of the new HA products. Thanks for the tour. :)

  27. Thanks for the video tour – I can’t wait to see all the new products in the store. Too hard to pick favorites! ;-)

  28. I love all the products!! The video tour was awesome, I love to virtual shop! I can’t pick just one favorite.

  29. Great show video, felt like I was there (wish I was). Too many great new products – especially excited about: Dylusions stamps/stencils/ink sprays, new alcohol ink colors and small blending tool, Pop-it-ups, Kelly Purkey paper, Stamper’s Anon. stamps, Amy Tangerine paper/dies, Queen & Co. paper, La-la Land Crafts dies, Freckled Fawn embellishments, Hampton Arts stamps, i o stamps and dies, Tattered Angels canvas bags, Dreamweaver stencils, Maya Oad charms, Webster’s Pages embellishments.
